Printhead Settings "a 2d Sillhouette" ? help I forgot...

Posted · Printhead Settings "a 2d Sillhouette" ? help I forgot...

I set this up before and the meaning of this dawned on me then, and now after a system reinstall I have to set it up again and I forgot what exactly these parameters represent.


is X min the distance from the left of the extruder carriage to the hotend?
is Y min the distance from the front of the extruder carriage to the hotend?
is X max the distance from the hotend to the right of the extruder carriage?
is Y max the distance from the hotend to the back of the extruder carriage?

the tooltip is the same on all the fields so the exact meaning of the parameters is just a little ambiguous to me.

    I think you got it right but not certain.  If you place a tiny print into cura you should see the appropriate shadow around it.  Maybe.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
