Thanks! Printed. After drilling the hole out to fit my dial guage it worked well on my mendelmax.

Worked pretty well, even with a non-perfect print bed. The design makes it working on many different geometries - which is great. After I used it I got much better prints.

This is an anti chicken-egg tool. How to print calibration tools if the printer isn't set up appropriate?

Calibration with a dial gauge should be done when you're fine tuning your machine - for basic setup there are other more easy methods as simply checking every edge of your printbed <-> x Axis with a matching piece in between (+ add sheets of paper: 0,1mm!) - after that you can do the fine tuning!
