    So I bought a big box second hand and have zero idea what I'm doing. I got the test cylinder on the sd card to print just fine but anything else I try to print just doesn't work at all. I tried to find a profile for Slic3r and I'm finding nothing. Everything I try to print myself just comes to the bottom left corner and just goops all over the edge of the build plate. All I want to do is print upgrades for board games. Where the hell do I start here? Please help.

    After you read that and made sure all is tight and true. Then you need to mechanically level the bed.

    This ensure the XY gantry is as parallel to the bed as it can be. The rest is done in software.

    I run the Duet 2 WIFI so if yours do that to I might be able to add some G-files how I level my bed...

    My Bigbox is currently taken apart becase I'm rebuilding it adding the titan aero Idex... bought that upgrade years ago but never put it on...

    So you need to specify your set-up so we know how to support you.
