Bed Shape issue #2427
Had some issues with the new version on my Flashforge setting the bed shape caused the print to run off the side - Settings were
Origin X 100
Corrected the printing off the side issue - looks like its calculating the 3rd & 4th co-ords off the X instead of Y.
I disagree - with those settings the bed_shape config line creates a bed 200x200 not 200x150.
from the origin -100 : + 100
Both are fine in preview - but the gcode created ends up printing incorrectly.
sorry - I don't know how to explain it more clearly.
Actually - while trying to grab screenshots - it actually looks like it might have occoured because a value isn't being 'saved' under some circumstance?
set to 200x150
Sorry if thats unclear/misleading.
and once you go back in -
I found that setting the bed to rectangular 200x200, origin at 0,0 and exporting gcode goes as expected, the print is near the edge of my print bed at 100,100 (my printers origin is at the center of the bed, its a delta). Then changing the bed shape to a circle, with the origin in the center results in the print being centered at 100,100. After saving and restarting slic3r and generating the gcode again the print is centred around 0,0. Not an issue for me as restarting clears it up but fyi.
Okay, I was able to reproduce this on OS X as well. The steps for reproducing it are:
At that point, the graphical preview shows origin in the lower left corner while the origin coordinate fields specify the custom location entered at point 2. After closing and reopening, origin fields are set to 0,0.
