Build volume quad positioning

As I understand, the center point has been moved in the current version of cura. Should serve that if one uses the button "center on platform" (with one printhead), the print will be placed in the middle of the buildplate.

    I added an offset to the 3D buildplate, because the nozzle is actually on the left side of the printer head. So this area you see now, is actually where the nozzle can get to. And thus, it needs less space for the right clips. Giving you slightly more build space (yay!)

    In the past I noticed that when the print head follow the far right side, the side of the right fan and screws will scratch the side panel. Is that still possible?

    That's not changed. And it depends on your UM2 build if it can scratch the sides. The official clearance is quite small, and if you slightly bend the fanducts it can already hit the sides.

      • 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
