How can I place objects on the platform with coordinates

Recommended Posts

Hmm. Not with the gui drag/drop feature.

I would combine all the STL's into one big STL file and slice that with cura - that way at least all the parts will be the exact correct seperation. Then I would probably do one of two things - in machine settings I believe cura centers your object on the center of the platform so you can adjust your X and Y max distance to cause Cura to place the objects properly.

Or you can hand edit the gcode file with an offset. For example if you want to move X to the right 1mm and Y toward the back 2mm, after home do:

G0 X1.0 Y2.0

G92 X0 Y0

That sets the x=1 y=2 position on your bed to the new 0,0 position.
