Thingiverse member ctrlV made a 3D model that can help 3D printer owners test their device and perhaps see if there’s something wrong with their software or hardware. Speaking with 3D Print, ctrlV says there are other similar 3D models, but his file can help check for different issues at once.
The resulting objects takes about 50min to print. Upon printing, you’ll then look at the accuracy of its measurements, shapes and textures, as indicated in the image above. You can find a more detailed checklist on 3D Print. Here’s Thingiverse member maverickf’s sample of the test file:
