Finally bought Simplify 3D but I can’t seem to find a profile that works. Does anyone have a profile in S3D they’ve setup for the Printrbot Simple Metal I can use? I tried to copy all the settings I dialed in with Cura and I coppied over the start and end gcode. But it keeps smashing the extruder into the top right corner, I checked to make sure the G92 command is working so I’m not sure what could be wrong. Maybe the X/Y center is set to the middle of the bed? But I checked the slicer and it’s set to 0,0. I also check the firmware offset with the M501 command and both X and Y are set to 0. Does anyone have a profile in S3D they’ve setup for the Printrbot Simple Metal I can use?
@Tomas_Vit the blog doesn’t provide the profile for the gcode tab which specifies machine definition, or the scripts tab which shows start and end gcode. Those are the two things that I really need.
same problem and possible solution here on the S3D forum:
Same problem different solution might be more applicable:
Do they not have a profile baked into the printer selection wizard? That’s a bit surprising.
@AlohaMilton neither of those would work. So I figured out basically that the origin for the printrbot is in the top left corner but S3D insists that the origin is in the bottom left corner. You can move the origin but that causes other problems. So basically I took my start gcode from Cura then tell my printer to home X and Y then move down 152.4mm to the bottom left corner. It works but it’s a little roundabout.
@Ryan_Carlyle they do but it only homes the z probe once and assumes the build plate is flat which mine is slightly tilted. It solves my problem but I need to do all 3 bed probes
I think you can change the Y origin position in the machine tab of the Preferences page. I’m surprised you can’t pull the start and end g code from your previous slicer.
@Aric_Norine @Jeff_DeMaagd (You both suggested the same thing) I did that, didn’t change anything. The problem is that the slicer thinks the print head is in the bottom left corner as soon as it finishes the start gcode regardless of where the printhead actually is. I tried using the G92 command to tell the printer where it actually is but it seems like S3D has a command directly after the start gcode that resets the position to the origin.
Tools, Options, Machine.
Also would be happy to share my other settings. Do you know what I need to do to export?

Also - Start code:
G28 X0 Y0
G29 ; probe Z
@Ken_McConnell I tried both of those things. That start gcode is literally what I pulled from Cura. I’m away from my printer at the moment but I’ll try to comment on this post tomorrow with how to export a complete profile since I can’t remember off the top of my head. I’ll also post my start gcode commented with explanations.
@Ken_McConnell File, Export FFF Profile, then pick the correct profile. If you could upload it to Google Drive or Dropbox or anywhere I can download it that would be fantastic.
@Ken_McConnell Why is your x axis set to 250mm? upgraded bed?
Yes it is the extended bed.
@Ken_McConnell I’m experiencing the same problem with your profile.
@Aric_Norine Here you go.

No idea. I bought from Printrbot as a back up about a year ago. I hadn’t noticed it was plain F.
@Aric_Norine I have to move the print head to the bottom left corner before the print starts so I have it home then move down the length of the bed.
