Won't print on center


Recommended Posts

Posted · Won't print on center

I have a Creality CR-10 S5 PRO that when I try to print something sliced in Cura just wants to print in the extreme front/left corner. I can not seem to get it to start the print in the center of the build plate.  I have the "Origin at center" check box checked. The machine specs are set correctly for my printer at 500x500x500mm. Anyone have any idea what I am missing. I should note I know it is not the printer as everything works in the Creality Slicer but unfortunately, I have a file I am trying to load that is apparently too big for that slicer.

    Don't. That option is meant for delta-style printers. The firmware of your printer does not consider the center of the buildplate its origin. The origin is in the front-left.
