[3D Printing] 3D printing test files?

I should have spent even 5 minutes searching before asking the list. There is 3DBenchy and a bunch of other shapes for testing different aspects of 3D printing. Not sure if it makes sense to include them in ippsample or simply mention them in the README.md or just let users find them themselves.

But I was wondering if there were 3D files or 3D models that were actually useful for testing and assessing the fidelity of 3D printers print resolution or accuracy? A simple example of this might be a ruler, where if it printed it out, you could compare it's hashmarks against those on a conventional ruler, and see whether the scale was correct.
