Calibration Cubes

 So John was printing pieces for his chair last night and while they did print there was a bit of line/space jumping going on, my first thought was that there was a problem with the extruder, more specifically a clog in the nozzle end where the heated filament comes out, but just to check I thought I should print a calibration cube. There are all kind of things you can print to help calibrate the printer but I wanted to see if there was a problem with the x,y, or z axis, so this cube would tell me. Obvs its not supposed to crumple apart like that lol 

Big problems with the z axis so after John greased the z axis rod, cleaned out old filament, tightened all the rest of the screws and cleaned out old melted filament from the nozzle, I printed another cube.

 This is what is it supposed to look like, so now to print more random prob pointless stuff lol


  1. Cube looks good once John cleaned machine? out ~ Xo

  2. At least you two figured out the problem. Have a great Saturday.

  3. Printing a calibration cube seems to have been just the solution! Smart idea!
