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?

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.

    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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
