I couldn't seem to properly center my replicator print head, so here is a simple rectangle that outlines the entire build platform with a thin rectangle.


10 Ensure your Replicator is plugged into your computer via USB
20 Generate GCOODE
30 Print
40 Watch the print head. Use calipers to visually measure how much the print head goes past the the edge build platform.
50 Go into Machine | Onboard Preferences | Homing / VREFs to adjust the offsets. Press "Commit changes" to upload them to the firmware.
60 Goto 20

BTW, it's a 220mm by 140mm rectangle, which leaves a little room to spare. The official specs say that the build platform is 225 by 145, although ReplicatorG thinks that is too much.
