Good stuff.

I begin calibration now. Too much stuff in the way to make dot, move, make new dot, and measure the distance - I printed a bar that was 100mm in X, another 100mm in Y, and 50mm in Z.

My results -
X = 94.72mm
Y = 99.65mm
Z = There is no mention of Z calibration on the wiki?

Question:
When calibrating extruder, am I measuring the output of the extruder or the input? I guess it is the output.

Math -
X steps are currently 655.36, the measurement was 94.72, Wiki says ... 655.36 / 94.72 X 100 = 691.891 (new steps/mm)
Y steps are currently 655.36, the measurement was 99.65, Wiki says.... 655.26 / 99.65 X 100 = 657.6618163572504 (new steps/mm)
Z - I will circle back on this, but it seems OK
E - Waiting to hear back from Lord Throgal
