Posted · Prints off-center, why and how to fix?

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
