Cura bed offset for Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker +2 Extended

Posted · Cura bed offset for Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker +2 Extended

Dear Ultimaker fans,


I'm looking for a solution why my printbed in cura has a weird offset. I made a printscreen that is attached in this post. There you can see on the right side i'm missing a part and the bed clips are oudside the white area were i can place models. When i print on the printbed there is the same weird offset im not able to print to the right. I have tryed a lot of cura versions but all seems to have the same problem. Is there any solution to this? because placeing big models is a real pain right now and it just bothers me.

    This is “by design” in Cura. Look at the printhead, and you will see it is not symmetrical. The nozzle reaches further to the left then to the right.
