I'm New to the 3D world, i have the Snapmaker original and have downloaded the Cura SteamEngine V 4.6.1. i have no problem with the software itself but I'm unable to generate Gcode that will allow print on my machine. it prints on the side of the print are. HELP! lol! i see that my Snapmaker original software is using  Cura SteamEngine 3.6.0. and prints ok, i am looking to break away into more customization with Cura 4.X.X. hoping somebody can help

    The physical aspects of your machine need to be known by Cura.  In Cura, go to Monitor and pick your machine.  Pick Manage Printers and Machine Settings.  Make sure the build surface and height are correct.  The most popular error is having "Origin at Center" selected when it isn't true.  I don't know your machine but the left front corner is the most popular Origin location.  While you are there make sure that the correct "G-code Flavor" is selected.  Hopefully that's all there is to it.
