Ultimaker S5 axle calibration stick


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 axle calibration stick

Hi all,


Up till now I've been using a digital caliper to calibrate the X/Y axles on my Ultimaker S5. It's quite fiddly as I've found it takes several passes to get both sides of each axle equally spaced.


While there's an Ultimaker 2/3 calibration stick in STL format on your help page here, there's no equivalent help article for the S5, nor is there an available STL for this model printer anywhere else (that I'm aware of).


So I've designed my own, which is now on Thingiverse (see attached image).


@SandervG Could I suggest this STL be added to a help page for the S5, to make it easier for users to calibrate their printers?
