It’s time for me to get serious on Calibrating my Moai, or cutting bait and dumping it for something more accurate.
Last night I printed a cylinder 50.8mm round and 34.925mm long.
The round measures 51.57-52.63mm 1mm out of round and .77mm too large. Height was 34.8. That’s not too shabby.
The cylinder was printed dead center of the build area.
I have done the circle test with the PDMS vat, and got it as close as I can, but that’s a jenky way to calibrate a circle. I tried doing the calibration Frustating Asura 2.2 Calibration process not working. The process is also kludgy. Why do they use a differential measuring method, rather than simply inputing the readings you get from measuring the cross, and having the software do the calculation?
That frustration aside I’m on a Mac, and the Asura for Mac software does not seem to list the calibration file as an option for exporting no matter where I put it.
Any advice will be welcome!
