I currently have a delta machine running Marlin and the carriage I am using has space for 2 hot-ends, however I am only using 1 currently.

This means that the prints are off centre by the X Y offset.

I have had a quick look and apparently M218 is the way to go for this.

I have put in to my start G-Code:

This hasn't done anything sadly, so I was wondering if I have put it in the wrong place?

How many extrudes do you have defined in your Configuration.h file? The M218 code is ignored if EXTRUDERS = 1.

Well in which case I shall set it to 2 and see what happens!

Just changed it, and still no effect.

Still treats it as if the extruder is at 0,0 rather than 10.4,-18.1.
