Before Install

When you connect your printer to your computer, and your computer can not detect the printer like the picture shows, you need to install the driver for it.

The first thing you need to do is check your USB communication chip, there are two type: FT232 and CH340. you can check the chip near the USB port. Usually, FT232 is a square, and CH340 is a rectangle

Which slicer software are you using?
You can adjust it with slicer software, "center" the object, or enter x/y value to change position or even change the scale of the model and so on.

Hi.
:mrgreen:

This problem is due to your operating system.
Try to work with administrator privileges.
