What printer? What version of cura? There is a setting in cura 15.X where you tell it if 0,0 is in the center of the printer or in the corner. If you tell cura it's in the center but in fact it is in the corner it will do what you describe.

    You might have the incorrect size in the printer settings, or as gr5 said, it might not be centered, to center it click on your model and click this O39zk and set the X & Y axis to 0.00 for both, if it slices that means it fits your printer (thats if the printer settings are right) and it should print in the center.

    Hope this works!

    Again, what printer do you have?

    Well you click in the upper right corner of cura where it has the name of your printer (e.g. "custom printer 1").  Then you can edit the machine settings in there (manage printers, select yours, printer settings).

     On one of the pages/tabs there is a checkbox for "origin at center".

    I'd be surprised if this is checked however. It should not be checked by default and if someone created a profile for your printer how could they have messed that part up? But if you created the profile yourself and checked that box then that might explain it.

    While in there look at all the machine settings to see if they match your printer. It might be something is way off such as the X,Y dimensions of your printer (or diameter if it is a delta printer).
