Yesterday I wanted to print a larger object on my K8400 using Simplify3d, and I noticed something that turns out to be a big problem.
My object is about 175x195mm so I had to fill the whole platform. But when it came out, one edge of the object was printed off center and up against the lower edge of the printer. So I started doing some measuring.
Turns out the printer is starting the print around 30mm from the upper edge of the printer.
This lead me to believe that the bed size settings were wrong. So I looked in the machine settings of Simplify3D and noticed that X was set to 200mm and y was set to 180mm. While my measurements told me that it is the other way around. So I tried to flip the values in the settings and print again, but that didn’t seem to make any difference. The software will not print in the upper 30mm of the bed.
If I press “home all” the print head goes all the way up to the right, upper corner. So there is nothing wrong with the hardware I believe.
Did anyone else experience something similar to this?
