Malyan M180 and S3D

Mon Apr 06, 2015 7:25 am

Has anyone yet been able to get their M180 to find and print center on it's plate ? Mine seems to have a mind of it's own and forever favours the left ?!

are you using a custom gpx.ini with your m180? have you tried the gpx offset commands -x and -y and/or the g-code offsets found in the g-code tab?

Thanks for your concern and response ....
Yes, I have the custom gpx.ini and have set the S3D offset commands to -x 54 -y 6 .... also, I have the M180's physical "Offset and Calibration" ( 10 ) now at X 132 Y 76.3. This seems to get me to within ±10mm of center I figure there must be a less demanding process !? I know this machine leaves a LOT to be desired especially for us Apple Macintosh users ... we tend to expect superior compatibility but the manufacturers seem to be Mac blind and somewhat ignorant and evasive. Cheers. :x
