Posted · Help, new to 3d printing, loaded model outside printzone

Hello,

Im new to 3D printing, was recently taught by my bro but now is away and was wondering why my model (which was drawn in sketchup and exported to cura by plugin) outside of the printing zone? the model dimensions is smaller than the pre-configured profile (by my bro). Can anyone help? attached pic curamodeloutside_zps44e90665.jpg

    It is possible to place the object anywhere with the settings on the 2nd tab: Advanced Config. Machine Center X and Y determine where the object is placed relative to your table. X=100 and Y=100 is approximately the middle of the bed.

    By the way: your object is very small. The sqares in the figure are 10x10mm
