I think I figured out what happened, and it'll make me look like a complete and total idiot: I had the wrong machine set up in Cura. It was set up for my old Robo3D, which I returned in favor of this one. I reprinted with the right machine, but it still happened - just not as extreme. It still hit the back right clip (to answer your question), and no, it still homes in the front left as it usually does. The entire model is off-centered, and it's still printing in the back right of the printer, which hits the clip. I haven't had any success with any x-y max prints. Even when I scale it down to 170 x 170mm, it does nothing.
Thanks for the help,
Thank you for your post. You are saying back left corner?
You photo shows back right corner, or is that not a picture of the Ultimaker homing?
After reading your post, I understand the head is homing in the wrong corner?
I do know from experience, if you swap the X & Y motor cables on the electronics instead of front left it will home in back right. Could that have happened?
If your head, for whatever reason, misses an end stop and hits your frame it may sound frightening, but it isn't really. You'll hear the motor skipping steps which is noisy, but it won't harm your Ultimaker.
Wouldn't recommend to leave it running (after a few seconds it will also stop automatically), but to ease your mind; it is not dying
Could you explain to me, what the problem is now that keeps happening?
That it hits the clips, or the frame?
