  1. Hi, I'm wondering if there's some of way to override Cura's auto-center function. Slic3r has this option, and it works for what I need, but I'd prefer to use Cura for a lot of the customizations.

  3. I'm really just trying to associate segments in the g-code to vertices in the file. As I've just started messing around with this, it appears to me that Cura doesn't use the coordinate system defined in the 3MF file? It still seems to center the print even after importing a a 3MF file starting from (0,0). Is there some kind of option I need to check to override this?
  4. Thank you for the quick response! I'll definitely look into 3MF files. So the vertices specified in the 3MF file are directly imported as they are into Cura (without any conversion)? Also, when you say "we put the X&Y on the middle of the build plate", do you mean you find the center of, say, the vertices of the STL file (in x, y) and put that at the center? Is there any automatic rotation involved? Sorry for the dumb questions ?
  5. Hi, I recently started working with Cura, and I'm wondering if the relation between STL vertices and position on the print bed is well-known (or someone can explain to me). Is there just an offset added in each direction, or is it more complicated? Also, is it possible to tell my printer to use the absolute coordinates found in the STL file (adjusted to meet the print bed specifications), rather than try to automatically adjust/center the print?
