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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
