Calibration is key to getting your printer working reliably and accurately.
This group is a place to discuss many of the aspects regarding calibrating your printer, as well as sharing files designed for printer calibration.
Feel free to start a topic about anything that is calibration related, i.e. best calibration techniques, build plate adhesive, max printer speed, or favorite calibration objects.
I don't know what's on, its a new build. The Z movement is way over what it should be. I had the axis move 40mm but it moved 52.23mm. I am using the firm ware form the kit manufacture and checked #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT to the Prusa calculator (https://www.prusaprinters.org/calculator/) the values are correct.
Seems to happen randomly through any long prints i have and I don't know why gone through and redid the file in Simplyfy 3d and everything but still will always lead to this but last time it was around 20% in this time like 35% in,m any helkp would be appreciated
I am probably just stupid, but my printer has no flow on first layer and the motor retracts. Higher layers (about third layer up) got no problem.

- note the pattern, it seems the center is convex along one axis
