If you have set up a different extruder steps/mm value than stock in the past I recommend resetting it to its default.

We recommend a micrometer instead of a caliper for the following steps. Calipers are not precise enough to measure such small values and a micrometer has a ratchet system made to apply same pressure for all measures.

If you need to buy a micrometer, choose a quality one. Digital micrometers are not necessarily more accurate and precise. In most cases, no-name digital micrometers are worse than quality analog ones. Some recommended brands are Tesa, Mitutoyo, Starrett, Etalon, and Mahr.

Make sure to use the temperature you are using for printing the filament. Do not change the temperature during these steps. Temperature might change the flow and therefore the extrusion multiplier.
