Calibration Sheet A4 vs US 8.5x11 - can someone share the measurements of the boxes printed out?

The calibration sheet is made for printing at 100% on A4 paper. Makes sense since Ultimaker is a Dutch company. 

 

US standard printer paper is 8.5 inches x 11 inches while A4 is 8.27 x 11.69 inches.  So printing at 100% on my paper can result in an inaccurate calibration sheet.

 

Can someone measure the dimensions of the rectangles in the calibration sheet and share that info?

Then I can compare and make sure my printout will work?

 

 

I suggest to the Ultimaker team that they also include a graphic of a box of a known size (maybe 20 or 30 mm) that we can measure to see if our print is exact enough or not.

    100% should be 100%, no matter what paper you print on. It is not "100% of the width of the available paper", but "not scaled to the paper". Make sure not to enable any "fit to paper" (or ssimilar) settings. Just 100%.
