Printing Outside Print Area


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing Outside Print Area

I am using Cura to print with an Prusa i3 Anet A8 printer. The print area is 220 x 220 x 240 and I have Cura 15.04.5 and it is set up according to the instructions from the manufacturer. I am trying to print a model with support structures and the Cura preview shows it perfectly within the print area. Yet when I go to print it, the printer begins at home (x = 0, y = 0, z = 0) but then immediately starts printing outside the print area. I don't understand what is happening.

    maybe Cura uses another origin than your printer. In the setup screen for your printer, there is a checkbox to set the origin to the center or one corner of the buildplate. you could just change it and see if it helps.
