A straight-forward calibration piece for setting up extrusion and your X and Y axis travel.
This was inspired by the Euro-coin Calibration by momorientes.


I have written an in-depth tutorial on how to perform a correct calibration using this thing.

You can find it Here:

For best effect, print with 100% fill, as this will highlight extrusion problems.

Thank you for posting this. Fantastic tool for Repetier Host Set-up. Very handy to finally dial in my Printrbot Simple Metal. I am getting spectacularly accurate prints now.

I agree with FatalDischarge. This would be more useful if you fixed your link to the instructions.

You should fix your link.

This was the best tool for calibration that I've come across. Mostly because he took the time to tell you what to adjust after you've made your print. I could print others and say yeah that's not right, but now how do I fix it? Can't thank this person enough for sharing this. Forget all those other calibration tools, this one rocks!!!
