Hi guys,

I'd like to use Cura with my custom printer but I can't find where to change the bed dimensions.

Could you help me?

Thanks

Giacomo

    On the new Cura you want to create a json file for your custom printer.

    See:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.06.00\resources\settings

    For examples. Most likely you want to base yours of the UltimakerOriginal file.

    That depends how your head looks. The machine head shape is a polygon (points are set in sequence) where 0,0 is the main nozzle.

    The head shape isn't that important, but the head shape with fans is when you're trying to print one at a time.
