Hi

Due to incorrect slicing of a print, the print head hit the side of my ultimaker 2 and now does not print in the centre of the bed. When I load cura it now shows a smaller area on the bed. How do I get it back to normal

    Cura is fine - it is supposed to show the right clips outside the build volume. That's because the nozzle is on the left side of the print head so even if you push the head all the way to the right until it hits something, it still won't go much past the left edge of the clips as shown in cura.

    It happens. It's a temporary problem - just rehome your printer or power cycle it and it will be back to normal. It makes a horrible sound but what usually gives is the stepper motor itself and it can handle it - no damage to the stepper. It sounds horrible but it doesn't damage anything.
