Setting up origin offset/disallowed area


Recommended Posts

Posted · Setting up origin offset/disallowed area

I own an IDEX printer, and since i can't use "origin offset" like i use in S3D. i have no idea what else i can do to make it work
i need like -5mm offset on the bed from home position.

Any advice?

i was looking into "machine_disallowed_areas" but can't find anything on this topic.

    i think i found the plugin you are talking about, it only does z-axis, i need on the x-axis,
    you see, if i configure cura to print with both heads my build size get's reduced in the firmware on the printer from 322x250(single head) to 270x250(dual head) and "home" position is the same while total buildplate size is 374x250 and add another 5mm gap on each side from nozzle to the edge of the buildplate when it's homed. so i need to figure out how i can make in total 62mm on each side of buildplate(x-axis) to be limited to "travel only".
