Delta Movement Test?

Post by Qdeathstar »

Hi,

Im working on getting my water cooling working and i got everything working, so now its time to check for leaks. I was wondering if anyone has a good delta movement test to test the movement range of the printer?

Thanks!

I've used this object before: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1255574

I like that file, because of the costomizer option, so you can set it to the horizontal radius you want, and to a low height so your not wasting a ton of filament. The other perk is that you can scale back the detail if you just want to print a ring that reaches the limitations of the print bed.

Why do you need customizer options to set the max diameter.

That can be done on the slicer surely? That is where I do it, if I want to play with sizes.
For instance, I have a solid cylinder 100 mm by 100 mm tall. And I print that in vase mode, full mode, scaled to 330 diameter or 400 tall if I want to see how the limits perform.

I don't need customizer to size an object to the preffered size. It's just one of countless available ways to resize an object. (I usually use Meshmixer) I never thought about scaling an object in a slicer other than by percentage. So, couldn't you resize the Eris calibration print to fit your desired print bed size? http://repables.com/r/791/ There are a few options like that on Repables.
