how can I make the lines start from the edge of the model instead of the middle

This can be caused by many things.  It's impossible to tell what's going on without the model, your settings, and your printer.

Load the model and set Cura up to slice.  Then use the "File | Save Project" command and post the 3mf file here.

Still no project file so I don't know what your settings are.

In the "Travel" section of the settings is "Layer Start X" and "Layer Start Y".

In the "Walls" section are "Zseam Alignment" and "Zseam Relative".

When I slice your STL file all moves start from the Left Front Corner as that is where I told Cura to put the Z seam.

Since you have an Origin at Center printer, maybe moving the model to the +X, +Y quadrant of the bed would make a difference.

The "Moved" file is with a round build plate and has the model slid over a bit to +X +Y.

      • 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.
