incorrect Y axis origin

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is an Ulti or an S3D question, but when I import a model (into S3D) and press center and arrange, the print will look good in the preview, but end up offset on the print-bed +4.5mm in the Y axis, and if it's too big, the print head will 'hit the wall' :(.

I guess I need to either change the machine firmware setup, or change the machine definition in S3D.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Cairn

Which printer? If you put the printer in your profile or description in post, it makes it easier to diagnose what to do to help.
