Build plate orientation - where's the front of the printer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Build plate orientation - where's the front of the printer

All,

 

I have an Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus, and I'm running Cura 4.10.  I manually added the settings for the printer into Cura.  Below is a picture of how my printer looks when I'm in Cura.  How do I determine where the front of the printer is, so that I can orient my objects to the front?  When I print objects that have definite front, back and sides, like a statue or a bust or a animal, they print out facing in random directions.  They might be facing off to the side of the printer, or to the front or back of the printer.  It's random.  I'd like to orient these objects on the build plate to a definite front.  Any ideas?  I hope that I'm being clear here.  If I rotate the view of the printer within Cura, there's nothing obvious to where the front of the printer is.

 

Thanks

For me, the red line always points in the +ve X direction (aka right) and the green line in the +ve Y direction (aka back).
