Build Volume Restricted

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow UM'ers,

I am trying to print a cut down spherical lampshade on my UM2 that measures 220mm (max dia) by 156mm high. For some reason Cura will only let me print it at 195mm dia. I checked the build volume settings in cura and they are the default size (larger than my object). I cant understand why Cura wont let me print at 220mm. Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance,

J

It could be brim or skirt increasing the effective print size. Try disabling brim (if it isn't already) under bed adhesion. You'll find the skirt settings in Expert -> Open expert settings. Set line count to 0 to disable it.

If you look in layer view (click the button in the top right corner of cura) you'll see what the print will look like.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
