Quick question for anyone that can give me a tip. This isn't really the end of the world but it is kinda bugging me and I can't seem to figure out why its doing this. Basically Cura is telling me I can't print anything behind my object which is fine, but why is it so large for this specific piece? Not only do I only have one object on the platform, but I even have it set to print everything at once. Even more is that this is the only thing that's doing it for me, the rest of the case is just fine. Any ideas?

    Have you looked at your model in x-ray mode to see if there are and errors.

    Sometimes software like sketchup can have a line or single thin face that you can't see but will effect cura.
