Posted · U2 not starting the print in the center of the buildplate

I am trying out my first print. The printer is starting in the front left corner and is trying to print where the glass clamp is. I immediately aborted the print in order to prevent any damage to the nozzle.

I checked my files for any stray parts of the model, but the files are alright.

How do I get the U2 to print in the center of the buildplate?

    Are you using cura to slice the model? Did you choose "Ultimaker2" as the machine type? Did you accidentally check "Machine center 0,0" in the machine settings?

    It's the machine center 0,0 thing. The center of the plate is *not* 0,0 (it's roughly 116,116). So uncheck that. You probably didn't select an ultimaker2 as your machine so you may have other issues also.
