First Print Calibration

I was wondering if this looked normal for my first print. 

Best Answer by Diem:

The one that really matters, the underside, looks fine.

The Logo is a carefully designed easy-to-print object that will work on any printer that is of a minimum build standard.  It is the opposite of a benchy or a torture test which is intended to expose even the slightest misconfiguration.

So:  You have a basic, working printer good enough to get started with, congratulations.

I would rate that print as good enough for the first month.

During the first few weeks of use the printer will run-in and settle its parts together; then you will have to go over the basic maintenance checks, lubricate and recalibrate. Even if you got everything dialled in perfectly today, it would all need re-doing.

Better to settle, temporarily, for a basic working printer and get some useful printing done, make your early mistakes, establish a routine and generally get used to the process. Then when you do your one month service you can take extra care knowing the new settings on your now stable printer are likely to last for several months.
