start print location

I have a Creality Ender-3 printer, Window Vista, Cura 15.04.3

My modle program loads fine from Cura to sd card and loades into Ender-3 fine. When the program starts it starts printing in the "Auto Home" position and not in the center of the build table.

What do I have to do to get the print to start in the middle of the build plate?? All of the pre-loaded models on the sd card print fine, in the middle of the build plate.

Thanks to all for the help

I suspect you need to change the Machine Setting for your printer. Take menu option Machine/machine settings and select your printer. You will see machine centre 0,0 on the left side. Change that setting and hopefully all will be well.

the images below are my current settings in Cura 15.04. I had unchecked the machine position 0,0,0 and that did nothing, do I have to somewhere else to get the start in the center of the build table?

Thanks

YellowShark; I deleted all files pertaining to Cura and reloaded Cura 15.04 and ran a test model and the extruder went to the center of the build plaed. Don't know what the issue was but it seems to be clear now.

Thank You so much for your help.
