home point in cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · home point in cura

hi everyone, 


the home point in cura is by default in the left front corner when in my printer it is in the rear left corner...the consequence is that the prints are mirrored in the Y direction...

i try to change the "home-point" position but i couldn't do it...is there a way to do it? Thanks

    Can you give some more details about your setup? Is the origin intended to be in the rear corner, or did you configure this in firmware? This could be something that can be fixed in firmware/stepper motor wiring.

    ty for answering....


    while I was writing the answer I understood what was wrong ... I always thought that the origin of the axes (green circle) was what "cura" thought was the home point ... when in reality it is only a "visual effect" and not influencing on nothing 😅...mirrored prints must have another reason 😬
