I need to position models to avoid a particular spot on the build plate that is damaged and off center. Is there some way of translating the S3D coordinates into coordinates on the plate, or vice versa?
I've had to do this no end of times....
Ensure you have grid line spacings set on your bed (Options)...and simply use the Transform gismo...second button down RHS toolbar...to move the model to wherever you want so to avoid the damage on your bed. If you have more than one model to move, group them using the option on the Edit menu.
I think you can do this permanently using the X and Y toolhead offsets in Options.
