CuraEngine G-code prints off print bed


Recommended Posts

Posted · CuraEngine G-code prints off print bed



I am using CuraEngine from command line to create g-code; however, when I create the G-code, it always places the prints in the top left corner of the print bed outside of the print volume (0,0 coordinates). I have tried numerous times to change values in the fdmprinter.def.json file, as suggested by others, as a means of changing print coordinates including "mesh_position_x" and "mesh_position_y" but have failed every time 😢 I have also experimented by changing "machine_center_is_zero" and "center_object" to "true" and "false" but also to no avail (this seems to have no effect on the printing coordinates). The G-code I produce has the following heading; I understand that the negative values in the header is problematic but does anyone know how to change print coordinates for the CuraEngine command line or how to fix this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
