new to 3d. first file prepped and run yesterday. ran perfectly.

today, i created a new file, when it started, it began printing from the home position. in effect, producing a 1/4 segment of the circular design. tried several times. I then tried my file from yesterday, and in moved to the center of the bed and begn printing normally. Is this a setting issue? Thanks

    On the menu bar select "Settings/Printers/Manage Printers" and then "Machine Settings".  There is a box for "Origin at Center" and unless you have a delta printer or one or two other printers that setting should be turned off.

    Most rectangular (cartesian) printers have the origin at the left front corner.
