Hi, im new to 3D printing.

I got a Glitar 3, a big build chinese 3d printer.

when I save gCode from Cura and send it to the printer, it starts printing on a corner, instead of the center if plate Is there a setting I am missing in Cura? Thanks in advance

    In Cura go to the Machine menu and the open the Machine Settings item and review and set for your printer.

    Review the "Machine Center 0,0" setting. Change it and see if that helps.

    Checked the setting. It was on, so I unchecked it, saved gCode and put it to print but the machine just said "printing" and showed the % but it wasnt really doing anything. Re-checking it made printing again but still on the corner. Also, when I tell it to print, it will calibrate the XYZ axis, but then the plate will lower about an inch, and start printing in the air.

    Make sure ultigcode is not turned on.

    Look over the generated gcode and compare it to gcode that works.

    You can edit start.gcode to match what works. That should at least help with the part where it prints in the air.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
