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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
