X&Y offset in Machine Settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · X&Y offset in Machine Settings

I've installed a printed cooling setup, HeroMe 6, and the doc says the Y offset is -9mm. Does this have to be changed in Cura print head settings? If so what setting, I'm a bit confused about the function of  the X & Y min and X & Y max settings.

The current settings are the default for an Ender3 Pro: Xmin -26, Ymin -32, Xmax 32, Ymax 34

    Those Print Head settings and the Gantry Height only come into play when printing "One at a Time".  They describe the physical size of the print head as measured from the nozzle centerline.  They are what describes the "don't put a model here" area around a model when in "One at a Time" mode.

    Get a ruler and measure from the nozzle to the left edge of whatever would be in the way there (for me it is the side of the hot end housing) and that will be MinX and will be a negative number.  Then measure to the right from the nozzle to the edge of whatever is there (for me that would be the outside of the blower housing of the 5010 I have stuck over there) and that will be MaxX and is a positive number.  Do the same for the Y numbers with towards the front a negative Y number and to the rear a positive Y number.  Your gantry height is about 25mm.

    "...the doc says the Y offset is -9mm"  I don't know how they mean that.  When I think of an "offset" I think Home Offset.  I don't know how an offset would apply to your duct and mount.  Your YMin is -32 and -9 would be -41.  Does that look about right?
