Platform Axis and Size specification: How to set? Where to configure

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use Cura 2.1.3 with a Monoprice Mini 3D printer. There is no profile for this printer. So I selected a different printer under "Other" and tried using that.

The problem is that when starting to print the head "grinds" at the far back, far right corner (opposite the "home" position in the front left.). This leads me to believe that the printing is off the extreme of the Monoprice printer. Perhaps the printer I chose had a larger platform.

I have tried placing the print in different corners of the platform, but basically I get the same results, although with different pitches of buzzing as the printer hits the end-stops.

How can I specify or change the settings of the build platform in Cura? Or, how can I set it for the Monoprice Mini printer? Is there some way of diagnosing this problem?

Any advice on this?

Thank you very much.

    • 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.
