The s5 comes with a few printer test files one called literally "Printer Test" Mine came out looking great clearly showing the capability of the PVA included...

...however Ultimaker usually has example tests and prints that either are cool looking or serve a purpose. This isn't resembling anything cool persay so I'm hoping there's an intended use?

 

Thanks all... (yes I did search extensively if there's another thread on this please point me to it.)

    Cool looking prints or prints that serve a purpose usually take a long time to print. This is just a test print to see if things are in working order which is printed on every printer before it leaves the factory. Some (supported) overhangs, an overhanging slope, some straight corners, some smooth curves, a bit of everything, but not something that takes too long to print.

    That, or the object is the key to unlocking riches beyond mere mortal comprehension. I think it is one or the other 😉
