100 mm x 100 mm x 3mm ( x/y/z) calibration square
x + y mark
steps for calibration X /Y axis:
1.Connect to your printer via a USB connection (direct to computer or Octoprint, etc.)
Issue the M503 command
Scroll back through the output of the M503 command and look for the M92 output. e.g. "echo: M92 X88.0 Y99.0 Z2560.00 E100.0"
measure top + bottom x and y eg. xtop: 100.4 + xbottom 100.2 -> xAverage 100.3 ,yleft: 100.3 + yrigth 100.5 -> yAverage 100.4
use this formula to determine new M92 values:
New M92 value = Desired movement / Actual movement Current M92 value
So for example, New M92 for X (87.74) = 88100/100.3
So for example, New M92 for Y (98.61) = 99*100/100.4
Create the new M92 command by replacing the X and Y values above with the new calculated values: "M92 X87.74 Y98.61 Z2560.00 E100.0"
Place this line in the Startup GCODE in your slicer. In Simplify3D this is placed in the Scripts --> Starting Scrip area. In Slic3r this is in Printer Settings --> Custom G-code.
Re-slice the Calibration square
Re-print the Calibration square
Mark and measure the new calibration square as in steps 4 above. Average the distances for X and Y. These should now be closer to 100.0mm.
If you are satisfied with the results, you are done!
- If the distances are not as close to 100mm as you desire, if not happy with results, repeat the calibration process.
Note: When you change material, you should re-test dimensions, and may need to re-calibrate your M92 values.
questions , comments are welcome, tips as well ;-)
measure bottom + top in x & y and recanibrate your printer
