Settings in cura 2.5.0

I added the printer "prusa I3" in cura but it prints mirrored. The bed size is also not correct. It would be great if someone shared the correct settings :)

I set my Anet A8 up as Custom FDM Printer with the settings shown in the picture and it is printing fine since 3 weeks


G21 ;metric values
G90 ;absolute positioning
M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode
M107 ;start with the fan off
G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops
G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops
G1 Z15.0 F9000 ;move the platform down 15mm
G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length
G1 F200 E3 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock
G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

M117 Printing...

End G Code:
M104 S0 ;extruder heater off
M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)
G91 ;relative positioning
G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure
G1 Z+0.5 E-5 X-20 Y-20 F9000 ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more
G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head is out of the way
G90 ;absolute positioning
G1 Y190 F9000 ;use this line if you want the bed to move to the front. delete if not.
M84 ;steppers off

Could you upload another image, that one is failing to load, might just be me though...

I set mine as a prusa i3 MK2 and am printing a test file right now. It seems like its working alright. I just had to change the bed dimensions.

I've set up Cura 2.5 as a Prusa I3, but didn't have a problem with Mirrored prints.

I did forget to change the bed size, and last night lost the edge of a large print. You need to change:

Settings, Printer, Manage Printers, Anet A8 (I renamed mine to this), and then set X,Y,Z to 220, 220, 240. Nozzle size is 0.4

Everything else leave as is. I've not changed any of the standard Gcode.
