Ultimaker 2+ Extended XY Calibration

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Extended XY Calibration



I remember printing an XY calibration print when I first got my machine. I would like to do this again after all this time and having just done some serious maintenance. Would someone be able to link me to those instructions? I enjoy using this machine and would like to get it back to how it was when I first got it. Thanks in advance.

    Do you really have an UM2+ Extended? Because XY calibration is needed for the dual printers like UM3, S3 or S5, but not for single extruder ones. So there is no XY calibration for an UM2+

    Yes. I have metta tagged photos from the evening of Sun, Dec 18, 2016 when I received it. Attached is from about 20 mins ago and proves that I do have an UM2+ Extended.


    I also have purchased an additional hot end during the + upgrade period (`~$400) and have had some success running 2 materials with Tinker-Firmware.


    I do remember running the XY print as part of the unboxing. I can share more photos if needed to prove my story.

    The only thing you do in the initial setup routine is to level the bed. But for sure no XY calibration.


    But can you explain what you mean with this calibration? Maybe you can remember some parts.
