Build Volume Restricted

Recommended Posts

Posted · Build Volume Restricted

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.
