Mark2 3D Printer


Introduction

This page documents the steps that need to be taken to get your printer dialled in and calibrated for high-quality printing. It describes the most important steps, the things that you'll definitely need to do if you want to get good results - but there's a lot more info out there on the topic of calibration, and this guide can't cover it all. Check the Resources section to see other guides on the topic.

Temperature PID

Extruder Calibration

  • Heat up HotEnd
  • Measure and mark filament 90, 100 and 110mm from entry to extruder
  • Request 100mm extrude
  • Check actual extruded distance against marks
 new_e_steps = old_e_steps * (100 / distance_actually_moved)
  • Update printer with values by GCODE
  • Repeat process until error is acceptable
