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.

      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.
