Are calibrations needed?

What is the problem?


What did you already try to solve it?


Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

So someone said on another forum they were having problems calibrating their Octoprint. So my question is, do I need to calibrate esteps, baby steps, etc in Octoprint? I've calibrated all that in the Marlin software, but it didn't occur to me I needed to do it for Octoprint. I assumed it used the printer software when it printed. If I need to calibrate Octoprint, how do I do it ???

I never calibrated anything in OctoPrint.
These things are so much hardware related, they have to be calibrated with the printer's firmware.

Actually, there is nothing to calibrate within OctoPrint.
Imagine OctoPrint as a smart SD card with additional features. And a SD card you can't calibrate too.


Thank you, sir. I didn't see any way to do calibrations in Octoprint, but I'm still very new at this, and wondered if I was missing it. For some reason, my prints using Octoprint do not seem as good as prints using a USB drive. So when I saw that post, I wondered if the difference was because I was to stupid to see how to calibrate Octoprint. Thanks again.
