long time no see! Just got a handmedown Replicator 2X, and discovered that it's not supported by default in this "Cura" app all the cool kids use for slicing :) What version of Cura did you use this with? Did you change any settings on the printer (inverting axes, etc)? Do you use just the stock firmware, or an updated Sailfish?

(I tried an updated sailfish with factory default settings using this in the latest ultimaker cura 3.1, but it unfortunately didn't appear to work right - might have pushed the build plate on the bottom, or might have just refused to print at all, can't remember which was the result of these settings and which from others...)
