Beginner needing help?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Beginner needing help?

have just bought a 3D Printer from Lidl the Balco 3D Touch. 
I have been having problems with the prints not printing centrally, they seem to either print on the edge of the plate or run out off the edge!
as I’ve never used a 3D printer before, I’m having trouble setting up for the printer to do this. 
I’ve been using Ultima Cura, I’ve then ‘sliced’ the object then saved it as a ‘gcode’ file saved it to a memory card. 
Here is a screenshot of the settings page, I would really appreciate any help in this matter. Thank you.
