Customizing printer geometry, how?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Customizing printer geometry, how?


I'm trying to customize a printer profile for my Velleman K8400, but I cant figure out how.

The K8400 has the XYZ home position in the far right corner, but cura has it in the front left corner.

How/where can I change this in cura? I basically wan to turn the bed 180° in cura.

I can't find any settings for this in the K8400 or fdmprinter definition files.

Another problem is that the manual XYZ printer controls are reversed. Where do I change that?

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,
