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?

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.

Ah Oops, edited above, thanks (UM2 Ext) ..

      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.
