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.

      • 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
