Needed something simple for initial XYZ calibration, so I made this cube.


Print at full fill.

Use following formula to adjust XYZ steps.

(distance expected / distance printed) * current steps value

Since this is a 20mm cube, 'distance expected' will always be 20.

My bad. I was thinking of mechanics instead of software. The formula is OK as it is. Sorry.

The formula is not correct, it should be the other way around: If the observed dimension is greater than the expected dimension steps/mm should be INCREASED (NOT DECREASED). Decreasing steps/mm makes things worse because it travels 1mm in less steps and will end up making dimensions even bigger
