Is there a way to move the origin on Cura to the bottom left corner?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Is there a way to move the origin on Cura to the bottom left corner?

I have a Creality 10s Pro, and want to use Cura to export my G-code. However, my Creality printer has a default origin at the bottom left corner of the platform, while Cura has an origin at the center of the platform. This means that when I export the G-code from Cura, my printer will want to start extruding off of the platform. I haven't been able to find a way to change the origin on the Creality 10s Pro, so I am wondering if there is a way to change the origin on the Cura app.

    This is an extremely common question and the answer is extremely simple.  I've seen this question dozens of times.

     

    Go to left side of screen in PREPARE mode.  Click on your printer, then do "manage printers" then "machine settings", Uncheck "origin at center".  Also check the dimensions of your bed - for example, if it says your bed is 100mm wide but it is actually 200mm wide then it will be printing on the left half of your print bed.
