Problem with starting my print

Recommended Posts


can somebody please help me.

Ive made a design i would like to print in spaceclaim, i then save the file and open the .stl in cura which i then save to the sd card but when i try and print it, the nozzle starts printing right on the corner of the machine.

In cura it shows that the model is in the centre of the printing area, why does it not go into the centre as shown in the cura program.

This is not the first time ive had this issue. WHY is this happening??

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

When you say it starts printing in the corner, is just extruding filament as part of the priming initiation or does it actually print the entire model there?

If the latter then it would helpful if you could post the first 30 or so lines of your gcode, including the first few lines after the comment ';Layer:0'

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
