I have a bunch of problems but am so lost on where to get help, i've tried chat groups and fb groups and forums and now I'm here. Please forgive me if i seem impatient or rude, I'm just frustrated and upset and tired of googling for answers. Also sorry if these have been answered before but I haven't found anything by searching.
I have been printing on and off for about 4 years, I first tried to build my own printer and that failed miserably, I now own a CTC dual. I have tried so many different slicers and I think all the switching has just made things even more confusing. I recently took the chance and spent the money on simplify3d and I like it but I'm running into a lot of problems and I just don't know what settings to change, and I know 3d printing isn't exact science but I'm getting really tired of starting from scratch every time I try a new slicer. thankfully s3d has done a lot of the work for me but I am still having problems.
Main one so far is I can not get any model to print center, i have tried everything from moving it manually to editing the offsets and I just can't figure it out, and it makes it nearly impossible for me to figure how to fix other problems if I can't even get something to print on the print area...
When i load up a file the model is put in the center (dark orange) but when i go to print it prints about where the second model is (bright orange), actually a bit higher because only about half gets printed before going off the are and hitting an endstop
when i remove the origin offset, this happens (see below) on the software, but nothing seems to change with the actual print..
Please can anyone help, with this and future problems...either here or email or something, I just really need some pointers.
