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

(edit: My machine: UM2 Ext )

    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) ..

    How old is your firmware?

    Haha no idea, how do I find out? (srsly)

    Anyway, regardless of the firmware version, I need to know how to reconcile the y-zero in S3D with the y-zero in the UM2..

    Follow the links young padawan......

    There should be an entry in the "Maintenance" menu (on the printer) - it shows a date and a version name.

    Great - that means: you can update the firmware to the current version and your problem is solved. :)
