How can I place objects on the platform with coordinates

Recommended Posts

Posted · How can I place objects on the platform with coordinates

Hi ultimaker,

I want to print some objects directly onto a sheet. To have a really good print result I want to print the objects one after another. But they need to be placed on the right place. Is there a way to place them with coordinates ?

Hope someone can help me with that.

Clemens

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.

thanks a lot !!! It works for me like this:

I put this code

G92 X30 Y45

before

;Layer count

Of course every objekt has different X Y values and than I copy all gcodes together in one file.

I found this helpful:
