I’ve created this topic to showcase instances of good lid camera alignment. We’ve seen plenty of bad alignment cases, let’s see how good it can get!
Suggested submission format:
–Find an old piece of cardboard or chipboard that covers the whole bed.
–With a dark, fine-line pen, draw a bunch of random shapes or test patterns all over it, out to the edges.
–Put the cardboard in the Forge.
–Read the test patterns with the lid camera.
–Select those that fall within the printable region of the bed.
–Engrave the test patterns lightly, right back on the same piece of cardboard (without moving it).
–Post an image of the result, e.g., either a screendump of the GFUI, or a simple photo of the cardboard showing the drawn patterns and the engraved patterns.
–Be sure to give some indication of the scale of the result. What we’re looking for is the maximum distance between any test pattern and its engraved version. You can, for example, measure it with a ruler and write that measurement on the cardboard before photographing it.
