3D printer calibration revolutionised - Step by step to better print quality


This started with a request by my Patron magruder13: make an all in one calibration video to avoid needing to go through multiple old videos. Rather than just rehash into one video, I’ve gone a lot further:

Say goodbye to manipulating your slicer and manually editing gcode to create retraction/temperature/acceleration towers. This website has everything step by step, with embedded relevant videos, and gcode generators that can make test towers to suit your needs in under 30 seconds.

It’s been a lot of work but I hope this is something truly worthwhile. Thanks to my Patrons for suggesting the topic, refining the idea and testing the website.

More to come on the site in future: https://teachingtechyt.github.io/
