    Printer's home isn't in the center

    I have a CR-10s pro with an inductive sensor and everything works fine except whenever I home the printer nozzle, the nozzle goes to the top right corner of the bed instead of the center. It does this when I start a new print as well. I don't think this is an issue with cura (which is what I use) because of the fact it goes to the same place regardless of if I am printing or just simply pressing home on the printer. Thanks for reading

      The image you posted shows the nozzle on the bottom left of the bed. Opposite of what you said so, maybe you're posting from Australia?
      X77 and Y50 on the display look about right for the head location. Your bed is 300mm so center should be around X150 Y150, home position at X0Y0 in the corner of the bed.


      Check your printer settings (bed size) in the slicer.

        I ended fixing the issue with the nozzle not being the middle by updating the firmware but I am still having some issues with this new firmware as I believe I uploaded the wrong hex file and now my cura wont seem to connect to my printer even though it worked 30 minutes ago. I will keep you updated as to when I can update the firmware again.

          I am not sure you understood what Navin_R_Johnson told you. Your printer is a cartesian printer, thus home is supposed to be near where your picture shows -- that is -- X0, Y0 are located at the bottom left of the bed. If you had a delta printer with a circular bed then home would still be at X0, Y0 but that would then be in the center of the bed.
          Also, home for Z is opposite for the 2 types of printers -- cartesian has Z home at Z0 (bed level) -- delta has Z home at Zmax (extreme top of the printer)

          If you enabled the firmware for a delta printer on your printer (home at the center of the bed) then you will have to reset it because the two types of printers are extremely different in operation. AFAIK neither will work with the other type of firmware.

            creality does not make a delta printer. that is not even an option. uninstall cura 4.4. install cura 4.5. install all the usb com drivers that it wants to install. if you still have problems please tell us what mainboard you have and what firmware shows on the screen of the 3d printer.
