Following Beny's advice, I've just setup JimBrown-MarlinTarantula firmware. However, my X0 & Y0 points are off the bed.

When trying to center my prints & afterwards sending G1 X100 Y140 to the printer, I am still off center by the margins of the sizes my X0 & Y0 points are divided by 2.

What should I do?

  • $\begingroup$ The last sentence is a little confusing - is there a comma or a full stop missing? Should it read "...I am still off center. By the margins of the sizes my X0 & Y0 points are divided by 2."? Where exactly is the head coming to rest? You say X&Y are divided by two, does that mean the head is halfway between the center and the corner? A photo or illustration might help. $\endgroup$ – Greenonline Oct 1 '18 at 8:50

By adjusting/calibration of the center of the bed you will automatically find the correct offset values.

This is explained in detail in this answer to the question How to center my prints on the build platform?.
