No one in the world needs to print any so called calibration objects and then measure them and adjust settings. Best and far more acurate way to callibrate your printer is to use digital caliper. PLace it agains none moving part of the printer on any axis and press it against the moving extruder. Once caliper is agains none moving surface and another end extended and is against the moving extruder, set caliper to 0 and tell printer to move in the direction of the caliper as far as you need. 100mm is good number. If you tell your printer to move 100 but went more or less, adjust your steps accordingly.
