RE: PrintrBot Metal Simple 1403, Recore, and Printing while Slicing Using CURA 4.13.1

Posted · RE: PrintrBot Metal Simple 1403, Recore, and Printing while Slicing Using CURA 4.13.1



This is sort of overboard here but I thought I should ask...


I have a PrintrBot 1403 printer. It works. The motors are good, the Klipper source works, and the board is okay and fast (Recore). Anyway, outside of plugging other peoples' works, I need support.


Every time I slice in CURA 4.13.1, I end up with negative values in the X-axis that creates my OctoPrint instance to go into error mode.


Is there a way to slice in CURA from thingiverse and have non-negative values for the X-axis for printing with my setup?




P.S. I know this is a lot to ask. I do not know where to reach out about this concern. So, if you have time and are using a PrintrBot 1403, please reply. I know this is an older model printer. The person that was in charge of mfg. this printer is back in business. This may be something to look forward to currently. I still have an issue, i.e. as their site has not been fully functional yet.


I am using Marlin as the type. I will go into settings and see if anything is altered or needs to be changed in the meantime.

    The printer profile for Simple Metal under PrintrBot options in the setup of machines in CURA, shows a particular center.


    I understand the center but I have my machine working from the corner. I think the corners are not exact, e.g. from my PrintrBot Simple Metal machine and the PrintrBot Simple Metal options in the GUI. For instance, the GUI shows off the corner to work from currently at close-left while my machine uses far-left while looking at the machine in the face and not the rear.




    P.S. Can this alter perspectives in machine code that needs to understand exact coordinates of where it is located, where the printhead is currently, and they relate to one another?
