The answer I have end up with:
// The size of the print bed
define X_BED_SIZE 210
define Y_BED_SIZE 209
// Travel limits (mm) after homing, corresponding to endstop positions.
define X_MIN_POS -16
define Y_MIN_POS -13
Size x: 209 y:210
Origin: x:-10 y:-6
I am probably off by 2 mm in x. Looks like these values in Slic3r are half of the offset.
This combination have placed center correctly.
Hi everyone. I have been trying to figure this out for a while and not getting it.
My bed physical size is:
X: 15 to 210
Y: 13 to 209
See bed shape.jpg it shows what is configured in Slic3r for bed shape.
However if I allow Slic3r to auto place large items it puts them outside of the printing area.
In laytout.jpg you can see what I had to do manually to have printed object to be placed in the center of the print bed.
Could anyone please explain what is it I am doing wrong?
Since uploading http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:763622 we have heard several times from users who had trouble slicing the #3DBenchy.stl file with Slic3r.
We would appreciate if more tested slicing #3DBenchy and gave feedback. Thanks :)
Has anyone else noticed that the bridge fan setting is completely ignored?
I'm making an attempt at getting my abs settings dialed in and the last thing is bridging. I'm unable to get slic3r to run the cooling fan while printing a bridge. It will blip the fan right at the start and then nothing. I have the bridge fan speed set to 100% and have tried all sorts of combination of the other settings. Only way it has worked is setting it to run the fan if a layer takes less time then X amount of seconds. While I can set this up for the 50mm bridge test, it's not going to work for printing an actual part.
