Printhead setting not working

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get the Printhead Settings to work.  I have a Printrbot Simple 1405, which looks like this:

So based on my reading of the help text, the Xmin should be about 40mm, Xmax should be about 60mm, Ymin should be about 10mm, and Ymax should be some very large value, like 1000mm.  The Gantry Height should also be some very large value (which it is by default).

 

Unfortunately, these settings result in an overlay map like this:

As I found out the hard way, this doesn't print.  Cura prints the model on the right first, and then attempts to print the model on the left.  It ends up crashing into the model on the right instead.
