View mode layers always shows model off platform lower left corner?

Recommended Posts

Run the firstrun wizard (you don't need to connect to an UM). Answer just the first 2 pages and then when it wants to connect to your machine cancel out of the first run wizard. This will set up all the settings for you that are needed. The most important thing is to tell Cura that you have an Ultimaker. Then this should work fine.

Yeah - it looks like a Cura bug to me. When I ran the "first run wizard" and told it that I was not using an ultimaker and said that the center was 0,0 it did the same thing - centered the part it at 0,0 and put it in the corner instead of the center of the bed. I think it will slice fine - it just won't show it visually correctly.

Cura 13.03 works fine but it is a different slicer engine and runs much slower.
