Posted · CTC Bizer printing to the top right corner off of the bed

Im using a ctc bizer in cura and i can not seem to get the extruder to move. Ive disabled origin at center and ive changed my gcode. What should i do? I apologize for lack of some info im very new to 3d printing im using my brothers old one. 

gcode start 

M73 P0 (enable build progress)

M92 X88.8 Y88.8 Z400 E101 ; sets steps per mm for Rep2

G90 (set positioning to absolute)

(**** begin homing ****)

G162 X Y F4000 (home XY axes maximum)

G161 Z F3500 (home Z axis minimum)

G92 Z-5 (set Z to -5)

G1 Z0.0 (move Z to “0”)

G161 Z F100 (home Z axis minimum)

M132 X Y Z A B (Recall stored home offsets for XYZAB axis)

gcode end

(**** end homing ****)
G92 X147 Y66 Z5
G1 X105 Y-60 Z10 F4000.0 (move to waiting position)
G130 X0 Y0 A0 B0 (Set Stepper motor Vref to lower value while heating)
G130 X127 Y127 A127 B127 (Set Stepper motor Vref to defaults)
G0 X105 Y-60 (Position Nozzle)
G0 Z0.6 (Position Height)

    It appears that the printer uses MakerBot firmware.  I would start with Makerbot and see if they would offer any support.



    One of the lines in your snippet tells the machine to move to a Y of negative 60.  Typically negative numbers in the X or Y indicates that "Origin At Center" should be checked.  It really depends on where the Home Offset 0,0,0 is and that isn't mentioned (but those numbers are loaded with the M132 line).


    Does the print head move when you use the LCD controls?

    I saw your post over on Reddit and I'm starting to think that you do have an Origin At Center machine.  That website that Illusi linked has these lines in that Gcode snippet:

    G1 X-90 Y-73 E24 F2000 ; Extrude a line of filament across the front edge of the bed
    G1 X-100 Y-73 F180 ; Wait for ooze

    So there are negative X and Y moves and so the Origin at Center box in Cura should be checked.

      • 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
