    The calibration script just tries to extrude 10mm of filament.
    If you did not heat up the extruder manually with the LCD it does nothing because the firmware is set to prevent cold extrusions. The min temp a hotend has to have is 180° C so that extrusion commands get executed...

    The heating was not the problem

    So you did heat your nozzle manually to above 180°C ? before running the calibration script ?
