Firstly, let me just say I am completely new to 3D printing and Octoprint

I’m having a slight problem when printing from Octoprint where the print always starts
in the bottom left hand corner of the bed.

Like this…

When I start a test print from the SD card on the printer itself everything works fine and
the print is centered correctly on the bed as you would expect.

So I am obviously missing something in Octoprint in the setup stage but where I have
no idea.

I followed this youtube video to set up cura and import the ini config as directed

Curaengine legacy and everything else like importing the stl files through octoprint
works great as does the printing but how do I get the print centered?

Thanks
