This object is made for checking the level on the build platform. It could easy work on most 3D printers, but the default settings is for Makerbot Replicator 2X. You just need to scale it to the build platform size of your 3D printer.
It will also show how good your print will stay on the build platform.
The size is 245mm 150mm 0.2mm.
Scale it to the maximum size your 3D printer can use. Also change the height to what layer size you want to use. ex. if you use 0.3mm layer height then change to that height, so it only put down one layer.

If you want to test more layer then just add the height as many layer you want to have. Keep in mind it will take more plastic for every layer you use.


I made this with Autodesk 123D Design.

I also made this object for leveling: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:70939

If you are not using a simple tool like this you are not level! :)
some areas of your printer may never be level. so using this tool you can find a good first layer height to resolve any unevenness of your build surface.

sounds good, but what do I do after its been printed?

If it looks good your printer works.
If not you need to adjust the printer.

This along with a dial indicator and holder helped me properly level my Replicator 2's build plate after a print and a half, plus one last print to verify it was indeed level.


Thanks for using it :-)
Have fun with printing stuff now :-)

After printing this over a year ago, I haven't had to touch my leveling screws at all

Sounds nice. I dont do that much either, after I added my carbon reinforcement. :-)
