Prints off-center, why and how to fix?

Recommended Posts

Hi again all,

My prints are all offset from the center of the base by bout 50cm in the y direction (toward the front, they are too close to the front edge of the printer). I have gremlins. Sometimes people come into my room while I am away or sleeping and mess with my printer settings. Plus there could be any other manner of explanations.

So I deleted my .cura folder and then installed Cura 2.3 Beta. the Beta KNEW ALREADY that I had a UM2+ and the offset did not go away. What's up with that? I'm confused because i thought deleting the .cura folder would erase it's prior knowledge of printer offsets.

What is the explanation and how do i fix this, thanks in advance - again!

Les

      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
