Visualizing 3D printer Z axis offset

This is the z-height calibration model from the Prusa forum (source below). While the number is somewhat arbitrary (as in the values will mean nothing for a different printer) it represents the distance from the PINDA probe to the print bed, where a higher number means the nozzle should be closer to the bed. These images spans from “not even making a layer” to “too close to extrude”. This is printed in ~3 year old red M3D 3D Ink PLA. I was having trouble with bed adhesion, so I figured it was worth it to go all out and give this a shot. All 4 prints are identical everything except for z-offset.

A bit of an angle shot to hopefully show off some of the texture differences. You can kind of see that at 775 it’s starting to look a bit off, and at 925 it’s similarly starting to look off.
