Print area has moved on cura

Recommended Posts

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.

    • 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.
