I'm not sure what you mean.  "images"?  "preloaded"?

 

Are you asking about cura, the slicer?

 

Are you talking about the printer "loads them into the bottom corner"?  If so, which printer?

 

What preloaded images do you mean?  On the printer are there preloaded gcode files?  Is that what you mean?

 

So I think this is the "0,0 is center" versus "0,0 is corner" issue.  I see it all the time but the way you describe it I'm not sure.

 

So I'm thinking instead of "images" you mean your "gcode files" appear clearly but into the corner.

 

In cura you can slice for delta printers which have 0,0 in the center.  It will center the print at 0,0.  If you then display that in cura for a non-delta printer it will show the print in the front left corner both in cura and in real life it will print that way.

 

Maybe you could provide some images (screen shots or pictures of the issue).

      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.
