Could you inform me on the specs you would put in Cura when adding another 3D printer, specifically the M3D (Micro 3D). I am confused on this topic because when I am adding another printer profile to Cura, I need to put the build area dimensions for the 3D printer. But, the M3D can keep printing above the actual frame of the printer, and that build area has different dimensions. To see what I am talking about, go here ( https://printm3d.com/themicro/#specifications ), then scroll down and click "tech specs". After that go to "Print area above" and click the "i". After that, it will show you a diagram of the printer's build area. I am having trouble on what I should put in the build area dimensions when adding another printer profile in Cura, since there are two different build areas all together. Thanks for helping (if you help) ! :)

    The building area (according to cura) is the area where your printer can deposit material (hence; building area, as this is the area it can build in)

    They state it a bit weird. Confuses me somewhat what they mean by it.
