How do I get my 3D printer to print in the middle?

You can fix a 3D printer not printing in the center by adjust the bed dimensions in your slicer if they are put in incorrectly. There are also specific nozzle offset settings for X & Y in Cura slicer to adjust the nozzle position. Recalibrating your firmware to print in the center works also.

How do you center prints?

  3. Click Custom Margins, and then adjust the margins as you want them to appear. To center the sheet on the page when you print, under Center on page, select Horizontally and Vertically.

Why do my 3d prints keep failing?

Typically this 3D printing problem is attributable to two parts of the printing process — either something is wrong with your filament supply, or there’s a problem with the hot end/nozzle itself. Or it could be too tight of an idler on your extruder resulting in stripped filament that isn’t being fed into the hot end.

Why does my 3d printer keep stopping mid-print?

Thermal cutoffs, issues with power, filament issues, a clogged nozzle, or a pause command in the g-code file can cause your 3d printer to stop mid-print, but as I mentioned in the article, there are things you can do to reduce the likelihood of them happening to you.

Why is printer printing off center?

Your printer might not be compatible with the paper size you are using. If your printer is compatible with the paper size you are using, you probably need to change the paper size in your printer settings.

Why do I need to update my Marlin printer?

Updating Marlin to the newest “official” version is not only going to make your printer more reliable, chances are it’s also going to print better because of improved motion planning and it’s probably also going to be safer since the checks for an overheating hotend and such are enabled by default in the mainline Marlin firmware.

Where is the origin on a Marlin printer?

For Marlin firmware it is very common (for most printers) to have the origin specified at the front left corner (when facing the printer). From the configuration of Marlin we find the origin is e.g. in the front-left corner. Note that this can be rotated 180 degrees in certain printers, so the aft-right.

What to do with no workspace offsets on Marlin?

Some uses include fine adjustment of Z position (without moving endstops) and shifting the coordinate space to print on a different part of the bed. This command isn’t available on DELTA. (For delta use M665 H .) This G-code can be disabled with NO_WORKSPACE_OFFSETS to optimize movement.

How to set home offsets in Marlin firmware?

View the current offsets with M503. If EEPROM_SETTINGS is enabled, the home offsets are saved with M500, loaded with M501, and reset with M502. M428 sets home offsets so the current position aligns to the native home position.
