Model positioned at 0,0 instead of center

Recommended Posts

After months of excellent results with CURA Version 3.2, I updated to 3.3 and now have a  problem.

Models centered in the program no longer begin printing in the center position, they start from the 0,0 (home position.)

Machine settings are set for "Origin at Center."

Older previous g-code files still start printing at the bed center and print fine.

I reloaded 3.2 but the problem remains.

Any suggestion as to what other box needs checking?

Thanks

I am very familiar with the "origin at center" issue but the way you describe it is unclear.

1) If you look at the gcode for the first layer, do about half the moves contain negative values for the X and Y positions?

2) Do you have a delta printer?

 

I'm pretty sure you *don't* want origin at center but the information in your post could have confused me.  It's mostly a feature just for people who own delta printers.

    • "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.
