Most printers have (0,0) on the front left corner.  Some printers (mostly just delta printers) have (0,0) in the center.  You have to configure this in cura in machine settings.  

 

If you have it configured wrong then on a normal printer it will print in the front left corner and on a delta it will print in the far right corner.

Hi there everyone. I have a IMADE3D Jellybox printer. I used Cura to install the latest firmware for the printer and I noticed that the prints were printing off to the left side on the build plate. I just (today) updated Cura 3.5.0 and the print is now even further to the left. I have tried moving the sliced item all the way to the right but it still tries to push the print over. I have attached what my printer settings are as well as a recent print that is sliced in Cura and an image of where it ended up on the build plate. Any help would be really helpful
