    CTC printer settings

    Hi, Can someone please tell me what the factory offset settings are for my printer when it is first set up ?
    I upgraded to sailfish and forgot to write them down.
    Now my printer hits the left side and clicks a few times after it prints the purge line across the front at the start of print. I have noticed it doesn't always do this, but most of the time it does.
    My printer is the one pictured

    IIRC it was 34mm (which changed to 33.96mm when the printer reset.)

    I don't remember any Offset settings in Firmware, Only in slicer software.

    I think these are the settings needed ?
    (if not, let me know, and I will look further)

    "bedZOffset": 0.0,
    "startX": -110.4,
    "startY": -74.0,
    "startZ": 0.2,

    ??? Where is that 34mm setting changed and what IS it ??
    (I can Not find it anywhere in Firmware Or software ! )

    Surely (-)settings wouldn't be right, would they ?

    My current settings are X home : 151.998 , Y home : 74.995 , X toolhead : 33.992.
    Done through Replicator G update settings.

    Yes, those settings were copied directly from a working default Makerbot-2.4 Profile
    and I can Not find any other related settings there.
    (I will try to find related settings in my Rep-G, may be tomorrow though,
    since I no longer use Rep-G and Python-interpreter but still have it on another computer)

    I don't understand what the X-toolhead setting of 33.992 could be ???
    There's nothing like that in Makerbot-2.4
    and the Z-offset should start at zero then move to .2
    (Maybe the X-toolhead setting was for a CNC-machine, not a printer ?)
    I'll try to find that also.

    Well I tried to get Rep-G G & M code list from the old computer this morning
    but for some reason Rep-G could not find Python interpreter.
    I don't think I uninstalled it, so don't know what happened ??
    So, I don't think I'll be able to look for setting codes in Rep-G, Sorry !

    I suggest that you use Makerbot-2.4 slicer, It's much easier to use than Rep-G,
    when computer is connected directly to printer through USB cable.
    2.4 is great after you find all the Hidden stuff in it

    Note: I've had problems with later versions of Makerware,
    so still use version 2.4, that came with printer on SD

    It's the tool head offset (For those wondering I mean the distance between the extruders) . When I updated to Sailfish, all of my home axis remained, but my tool head offset had been set to 0, so when the printer used the left nozzle it went way left and started clicking before attempting to print.
