Diagnostic prints?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Diagnostic prints?

I am a brand new UM2 owner and was wondering if anyone has ever essembled a collection of test prints that could be used as a tool in determining if your printer is setup properly or performing up to specs?

Direct download of UM2 GCode files for example could bypass any user screwups with Cura settings.

If someone has a few recommendations for "torture test pieces" or objects that might be good for testing I would love to see them.

Thanks!

    Nice idea! :smile:

    Here's a few I found particularly useful.

    There's a very good cylinder torture test, forum thread here: (you need to print it at 230C)

    This little object is quite useful as well: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/hollower-calibration-pyramid

    And there's also the little UM robot which came on the SD card supplied with your UM2. The overhangs, ears and antenna are good for gauging printer adjustments to get them nice looking. (It is a tricky print to get right)

    :smile:
