Change home position in Ender 3 V2 with Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Change home position in Ender 3 V2 with Cura

I bought an Ender 3 V2 a few days ago. My printer always starts printing in the front left corner. For example, I wanted to print a ring and unfortunately only a quarter of it in the corner was printed. Can anyone tell me exactly what I can do to get the printer to print in the middle? I tried several ways, for example g-code command in cura but nothing works. Will installing the new firmware on sd card (for example Marlin) do something?

    On the Printers pane of the Preferences, go to Machine Settings. Is the checkbox in front of "Origin at center" checked? It should not be checked.

    As @ahoeben points out - it's a simple thing to fix.

    Don't go looking at changing a bunch of stuff until you have a feel for how the machine works.  When the printer is put together with due care and adjusted correctly (all three axes perpendicular to each other, the belts are adjusted, the trolley wheels are adjusted, the E-steps are calibrated, and all the bolts are snugged up) the printer will kick out good prints.
