"Standard" test prints for 3D print beginners to test
« on: March 23, 2016, 05:54:53 PM »


Testing the new 3D printer may be important for beginners like me.
Some of the items were suggested in the shoutbox and I also added some which seem to be interesting:

Since you have gotten a delta a tip for setting your Z (height) home the printer G28 if using marlin, then from the top bump machine 10mm down counting how many times, (measure that 10mm = 10mm) until close to base, then 1mm steps until you are the thickness of a matchbook cover or less from base that number is your Z.

3DBenchy is of course my favorite test print. I use it mainly to try out slicer settings.

To tune retractions settings I've used this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:15087

To calibrate X/Y axis I've printed this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:28109

MEgg start small, the prints are faster get close going with small quick prints then when you are getting good, go for larger longer more complex prints, you will save time and not waste plastic. With a delta big diameter circles/objects are very useful for getting your end stop adjustments correct, they just take longer so do them when your close.
