Test models

Test models are used in 3D printing to evaluate the performance and accuracy of a 3D printer and its settings. They can help users determine the best print settings for a specific 3D printer and filament, as well as identify any potential issues with the printer or the print process.

Some common test models used in 3D printing include:

  1. Calibration cubes: These simple models are used to test the dimensional accuracy and consistency of a 3D printer. By printing a series of cubes with varying layer heights and wall thicknesses, users can identify any issues with the printer’s extrusion rate or bed leveling.
  2. Benchy: This small boat-shaped test model is designed to test a 3D printer’s ability to print small features, overhangs, and fine details. It can help users identify issues with stringing, layer separation, and other common problems.
  3. Bridging test: This model is used to test a 3D printer’s ability to print long, unsupported overhangs without collapsing. It can help users determine the best settings for printing bridges and other structures with long unsupported spans.
  4. Inverted pyramid: This model is used to test a 3D printer’s ability to print small, detailed features with a high degree of accuracy. It can help users identify issues with print quality and surface finish.

Test models are an essential tool for optimizing the performance and accuracy of a 3D printer, and can help users produce high-quality prints consistently.
