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 :)
