Extruder Calibration Tool

Post by seaton »

Here is a tool I designed to help with the calibration of the extruder after chasing my tail with print quality problems. Sorry for the quality of the photos and it's a bit hard to see the filament on the back as it's black as well.

basically instead of marking filament with a pen and measuring the extrusions, the calibration tool provides flat surfaces that a vernier calliper can measure the movement more accurately.

I've uploaded all files to thingiverse, so please post any improvements. I still have a couple of fixes to it, but works as is.
