Printing not centered on Y-axis

Post by jah5150 » Fri Jan 10, 2020 9:57 am

I just finished assembling my I3 Pro C and getting everything configured. When I Auto Home the printer, everything goes to the correct location, hits the limit switches and stops, so I think all my directions are set correctly. However, when I print, the X-axis moves to the center of the bed, but the Y-axis stays near the front of the bed, instead of moving to the center even though my object was centered on the bed. I've tried both Repetier and Cura, and it doesn't make a difference. The part comes out correctly, other than being off-center. If I were to print anything larger, though, it would be a problem.

My steppers are configured as following:
#define INVERT_X_DIR true
#define INVERT_Y_DIR true
#define INVERT_Z_DIR false

Has anyone else encountered this? Any ideas would be appreciated.

:D Hi, You can view your print range settings
Set the maximum and minimum ranges,
Set the print range to the center of the print.

The printed model should not exceed the print range.

Sorry. I'm not sure I follow what you mean.

Are these the settings you are referring to?

I have the following settings for mine:

#define X_MAX_POS 210
#define X_MIN_POS 0
#define Y_MAX_POS 210
#define Y_MIN_POS 0
#define Z_MAX_POS 180
#define Z_MIN_POS 0

I didn't see entries for:

#define X_BED_SIZE
#define Y_BED_SIZE

in later versions
#define Y_MAX_POS
#define X_MAX_POS
are defined as
#define Y_MAX_POS Y_BED_SIZE
#define X_MAX_POS X_BED_SIZE
they are one in the same.
suspect your using some years outdated copy of marlin that isn't even supported any longer.
