Hi Guys, Some that has happen ever since the last update is the model showing up in the lower left corner of the model space when viewing as layers? I figure this has got to be a setting thing?

Thanks for the help!

    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.

    Thanks for the reply gr5! I did as you suggested with no luck the layer view still only shows up in the lower left corner? I still think it has got to be a settings issue. Is anyone having success with a delta printer using Cura and this issue?

    Thanks for the help!

    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.

    (Back after 2 weeks vacation)

     

    If you put the "center is 0,0" it will put the later view in the corner, this is a bug. Fix is in place for the next release.
