I have changed the X offsets for the extruders in Printer Settings with no effect to the printing position which is to the left of center by 16 mm.
What am I doing wrong?
Thank you for responding so quickly.
The printer is a GEEETech i3. The extruder nozzles are 32mm apart in the X direction so I need extruder 1 (left) to be offset by -16mm and extruder 2 (right) to be offset +16mm so they will both start in the center of the printable area. I have entered large values (-100) for extruder 1 with no change in X or Y position. I even tried a positive number (+100) with no luck. I am using version 2.1.3 of Repetier-Host
I found out there are two areas for extruder offsets, one in the config printer settings and the other in the Slic3R program printer settings. I changed them both to 2560 offset on extruder 2 only in the X direction with NO luck. I looked on the printer display ( I think you call that the eeprom) to find an offset but when I try to enter into the home offset it quickly goes back to the main screen and beeps at me.
Is there a G-code that could be sent to the printer to set the X offset in the start after the home G-code?
Hello Repetier, The problem was that the printer setting for the slic3r somehow got duplicated and I didn't notice the slight difference in the file name so I was editing one file and slicing with an other. I was able to get the extruder offsets to work by setting both (slic3r and Repetier) printer settings and to be centered on the bed by changing extruder 1 to -32mm and extruder 2 to 0mm.
I now have a new problem in that the brim extrusion only works for extruder 1. This causes the first extruded layer from extruder 2 to be all messed up. I don't see anything in any of the settings to fix this, there is only one setting and it is for extruder 1. I tried different slicers like Cura and Skeinforge but they don't even have provision for 2 extruders.
