All you need to calibrate the Silhouette Alta is a piece of copy paper and the Silhouette 3D software will walk you through the rest.
It's a pretty quick process but calibrating will help ensure you get the best prints with your Silhouette 3D printer!

Check out this video on how to calibrate the Silhouette Alta.

Keep in mind you should not need to go through this process when you're unboxing the Silhouette Alta, it's more of a maintenance step that you can take if you're getting uneven prints, the base of your 3d prints are lifting or you have too much gaping.
