Slic3r keeps creating model outside of print bed

Postby Nath5 » Tue Nov 03, 2015 6:04 pm

Hello,

I am using MatterControl and would like to use sli3cr. I used to use slic3r without problems. Then I switched to a e3dv6 lite and now slic3r is doing strange things. Below is an image of the layer view of a print I was trying to do. The same thing happens for all prints where the generated gcode instructs the printer to print outside the printbed. It is like slic3r doesn't know where the center of the printer is.

Any Ideas?

Forgot to mention that the matter slicer works properly so it is something up with slic3r.

You can download Slic3r as a standalone program and use that to generate your gcode files, then import those into MC.

There have been several threads like this recently and my operating theory is that the integration between the latest MC and the 1.2.X branch of Slic3r, which changed the bed definition, is buggy.

Using the latest version of slic3r standalone seems to have worked. Hopefully matter control updates soon as it is nice to have everything bundled together.
