How to determine the start location

Recommended Posts

There are many possibilities.  The one that seems most likely and comes to mind first is that in Cura you selected an Ultimaker 2 instead of an ultimaker 2go.

 

This would default the part to the center of it's roughly 200mm X 200mm plate which centers of course roughly at 100mm X 100mm which is in the back right corner of the 2go.   (0,0) is the front left corner and X increases to the right an Y increases to the rear.

 

You can in fact place your part anywhere you want in Cura so you can just click and drag it to the front left corner in cura, slice, and it will print closer to the front left corner than it has in the past.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      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.
