Model positioned at 0,0 instead of center

Recommended Posts

Posted · Model positioned at 0,0 instead of center

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?

    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.

    Thanks for the info.

    I used the defaults and tried with and without but must have not rebooted to save the changes.

    Looking at the g code in Notebook, it appears that the issue has been resolved by unchecking the box.

    Again thanks.
