    Centring a print in Cura

    I'm using Repetier-Host V2.1.3 with its bundled Cura on Linux Mint 19.2. I've downloaded a couple of .stl files from thingiverse, but the generated gcode prints at the rear right hand corner of the printer bed.
    I did choose the 'center' option in repetier before generating the gcode. but it still prints in the rear right hand corner of the bed (and sometimes off the edge of the bed)
    The printer is BiBo dual extruder, and while their support has tried to be helpful, they don't seem to understand the problem.

    I just need to be able to center prints reliably in the bed.

    Is there an easy way to do this in Repetier-host/cura, or is there any other open source software that you could recommend that would ensure that prints are centred.

    Can't really help under Linux but Cura running on Win 10 or on Mac you just Right Click (or equiv) on the object and a dialog box appears that contains, 'centre object'. Hope that helps somewhat.
