Thanks, probably printed this 10 times....but got my Anycubic Mega-S bed dialed in to where I am happy with it.

Don't worry, it gets easier from now on. In a few weeks, you should be able to see right away if the first layer is a bit off and you'll adjust it on the fly. There's hardly any need for calibration squares then, unless you did some major change to your printer.

Thanks for making the effort to help out us new comers to 3D printing.
I did have a giggle when I noticed that the "Order this Printed" is available for the model!

No problem at all, happy to help.

Yeah, hehe, that's funny, but it seems to be enabled by default, it wasn't my decision.

Thank you, helped me very much! <3

Always happy to hear that :)

Hello, you mentioned ikea mirrors which ones?

The mirrors are called "LOTS". They come in a pack of 4 and usually cost only around $9/7€, here's the link:

You are commenting under my 200x200mm levelling squares, so I'd like to warn you that the Ikea mirrors are 300x300. If your printer's bed is smaller, you will need to cut them down to a proper size. I've never tried cutting a mirror before, but I suspect it's similar to cutting glass. Check if there are any guides on YouTube, but remember to always wear safety goggles.

thanks for the information. Yes mine is 200x200. I will have to see about getting it cut down no real big issue. I have a glass bed now but I level the corners and the center still seems out. Thanks again for the info.

Most glass beds that come with Chinese printers are warped in the middle. You can try turning it around, some people have luck with that. You could also try printing this to raise it in the middle:

Buying a mirror is the best solution though, even cheap ones from Ikea are much more flatter than Chinese glass.
