Cura home position settings -

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks -

I have a Prusa I3 and have been using it with the front left corner as 0,0 which works great with Cura.

I recently changed my X axis endstop to the opposite side and would like to change the machine settings

accordingly so that my prints do not come out reversed or mirror image looking. Is there a way to do this effectively?

The optional settings for 0,0 by default are the front left corner -or- center of the bed but no right corner option.

Thanks! - JD

This has to be specified in the firmware. Afaik your printer also uses Marlin. Check configuration.h for the homing directions.

OK got it, I thought so. I'm guessing that the "0,0" home position indicator (black crosshair symbol) will always be shown in the front left corner on the graphic display in Cura regardless of which side the printer will be set up on?

Yes, I think so. Afaik the only other option Cura offers is the origin at the center, intended for delta printers.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
