Hello,

I want to look if my bed and the printhead is calibrated good.

Normally the sd-card is provided whith a test print but my sd- card is empty.

I searched the forum and the file i found was this one.

https://www.dropbox.com/...MiniCalTest.stl?dl=0 (this file is a block with different shapes on it).

The file i'm looking for is to print a first layer to look if printhead and bed are good calibrated or not.

Thanks in advance, Hans

    I'm gonna sound like a real ass here but... Why don't you just make one? As an owner of a 3d printer you should learn some basic CAD. It'll open up your world to a lot of possibilities beyond printing trinkets from Thingiverse.

    Nope, not an ass. I concur completely. A little bit of knowledge and fundamentals goes a long way.

    And, you have to fix so many bad things from the thingiverse. That can be a real crapnado of bad 3D work.

    Hello,

    I understand exactly what you mean, the best way to learn something is to do it yourself and sometimes ask some help from more experienced people.

    Just wondered if the file was stil available.

    I'm a newbie in 3D printing so i still have to learn a lot about the settings of my Original+.

    No hard feelings at all and thanks for the responses.

    And the reason i bought it is to create my own things and not just download from

    other sites.

    If you haven't done so yet, I would suggest you try DesignSpark Mechanical for 3D-design and editing. This is freeware from RS-Components (big electronics supplier), and is a limited version of SpaceClaim. It is very good for geometric shapes (not for organic shapes). It only requires registration on their site, which seems an acceptable price to me, regarding the quality of the software.

    It is very easy to learn: it works similar to SketchUp but produces much better quality 3D-models. On Youtube you also find a lot of good manuals and modeling tips. Have a look there to see if the DSM-workflow appeals to you.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
