off center with downloaded blueprints

Recommended Posts

I have a Maker select Plus. I can print the 4 pre made blueprints off the SD card the printer came with fine. When i try to print any blueprint i download online (thingiverse) it prints in the front left of the printer. It doesnt print any like the blueprint its just a glob of melted filament. I tried the IT department of the printers makers, they never encounter anything like it and are going to get back to me.

Any ideas on how to fix. Youll have to break it down to beginner instructions due to my lack of experience.

It's probably a glob because it's printing too high off the print bed. Usually each printer has a little bit of customization that goes into Cura. I have no idea what a "maker select plus" is. Do they have their own special version of Cura on their website somwhere? Already customized for your printer? Or are you using some other slicer?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      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.
