Why does my 3D printer keep printing in the corner?

Why Does My 3D Printer Start Printing in the Corner? One of the most common reasons why your 3D printer is starting in the corner is due to not having the right printer set within your Slicer, meaning the bed size of your actual printer is not matching up to the bed size in your software.

How do I make the corners of my 3D printer sharper?

The lower the acceleration and the lower the jerk, the more time it spends on the corners. The simplest solution is to set the print speed to the jerk speed. That way it won’t slow down. The term “jerk” is a bad term here because physicists have a very different definition for that word.

How to print in front of the build plate?

I am trying to print my first test but my Creality Ender 3 starts printing near the front edge and within 10 seconds is printing in front of the tray (off onto my table). I really think it should be starting the print in the middle and then never going so close to the edge and even over it What can I do?

What determines print start location on the build?

From my testing, the main control of print location is within the G-Code generated by the slicer. The tool I was using, Slic3r does give one a chance to correct that adjustment. You have to go to top menu Settings –> Printer Settings –> Size and Coordinates (Bed Shape) –> Set to get a nice popup visual tool.

What happens if print does not stick to build plate?

If the print does not stick well to the build plate, there’s a chance that it will become loose and that the print will fail. This page contains several tips for improving the adhesion of your print to the build plate. Good adhesion will also minimise the amount of warping (the corners of the material curling up at the bottom layer of a print).

Where does the origin go on a printer?

The origin needs to be located right in the center of the build plate (to be consistent with the firmware controlling the print for this family of printers). It should look like this: Note, when you tell the printer to go to ‘home’ it doesn’t go to origin (0,0,0) it goes to the endstops.
