3D model description

I needed a super simple, super quick test pattern to test the z-offset on my BLTouch so I whipped this up in FreeCAD. All it is is a 150mm square bisected horizontally and vertically with one solid circle in each corner and one solid circle in the middle. The lines are all 0.8mm wide (2 perimeters with a standard 0.4mm nozzle); the corner circles are all 8mm in diameter; and the center circle is 16mm in diameter. Cura defaults to a 0.3mm layer height for the first layer, so that is the height of this pattern.

Printing at 0.2mm (essentially 0.3mm since it's only the first layer) with a print speed of 40mm.sec, this print only takes four minutes - not including the warm up time or time spent running a leveling profile.

I am a self-proclaimed know-it-all. I will tackle any project regardless of my experience, or lack thereof. Always ready to learn something new. With over 25+ years experience in electronic repair and 10+ years experience in small engine / ATV / motorcycle repair, there is nothing I can't fix, modify or build.

Why a pepper? In case anyone is curious as to why there is a hot pepper embossed into most of my designs... My nickname is Pepper and that little pepper logo is a hell of a lot shorter than "Copyright © 2017 by Derek J.G. Tombrello" which is how I usually sign my work :)
