Cura generates wrong coordinates on Mac Air

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've installed Cura 13.11 on my Mac (OSX 10.8.5) And it really messing up the G-code.

The coordinates are way out of the platform.

On a other Mac no problems ( but thats not my Mac)

For example the first few lines of the robot gCode wich was delivered with the UM2 and the GCode of the same file generated with Cura.

The original:

And the generated by Cura 13.11 on my Mac

The Internet connection messed up here at UM, so the uploads where incomplete. I just re-uploaded all files for the 13.11.2 release, and I think it should work now.

Note that on MacOS, for some magical reason, different Cura versions can interfere with each other. So having only 1 Cura installed at the time on a Mac is recommended.
