Cura not printing in the correct position, Help!

Recommended Posts

 

 

I have a duet wifi board running the latest firmware 1.21, using Cura with the FT-5 printer. I can move around and home perfectly fine with both the individual axis and with the home all. The problem arrises when I try to print a file generated in Cura. After homing the printer and loading up a file, the head wants to move beyond the print area. The Z moves up into the head, the X moves further away in the + direction. My home position is in the upper right corner of the 300x300 bed, the Z is 400mm. My axis movements all begin in the minus X, Y, and Z direction from home as I am using the minus quadrant relative to my zero. I suspect the problem is in the Cura start code? Ive been trying to get up and running for four days now with no success. Any help on getting my prints set up in the middle would be great!

 

My Duet wifi Config.g file is

Can anyone please help me with the correct parameters here to get my first print?

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
