How to center my print more on the board

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to center my print more on the board

Hey guys, I just bought a flash forge dreamer and I may already have a few technical issues. Whenever I do a print, it's always off centered. This affects my larger printed objects because of the space they need to occupy in order to print well. Do any of you have suggestions?

many people complain of this on the UM2 but the print head is not symmetrical - the nozzle is over towards one side - so it actually *does* print symmetrical - it just doesn't print symmetrical on the print bed.

I think you should ask people over at mark forged forums.
