Hi...BRAND NEW to 3D printing and have a Monoprice MP10. I have been using 4.12.1 on the Creality CR-10 setting since there is none in the software for my printer. It's been working fine but the placement of the print area is always off center. This even though the sliced version shows it center. Anyone offer a Noob advice on why this might be happening. Thanks in advance and lots to learn!

    Is that an MP10 or an MP10 Mini?  Measure the bed size and if it's about 200 x 200 it's a mini and you will need to adjust Cura.

     

    Click Settings | Printer | and down at the bottom select "manage printers" and then "machine settings".  On the left side of the dialog you'll see X(width), Y(depth), Z(height).  Fill those in with the actual dimensions of your printer to make Cura match what you actually have.  Remember that you need a safety border around the periphery of about 3mm so adjust the X and Y measurement accordingly.

    Don't worry about the numbers on the right.  Those come into play when you print multiple objects and use "One at a time".
