Maximum rectangle that can be printed on UM2 +

This has probably been done to death, but what is the maximum rectangle/square you can print on an Ultimaker 2+?

Website states 223 x 223 but I've been reliably informed it isn't that by a someone looking to print the biggest possible rectangle/square with all first layer touching build-plate?

    Hi Franny500,

    I attached a Cura image for you which shows a bit what you were looking for.

    The fact is that there are glass clips on the bed which take a way a few mm in the corners of the print bed. So the largest square will be a little bit smaller than for example the print I choose. I would advice to go no larger than 221x221 mm to reduce the risk of your printhead slamming against the sides. Other than that you are good to go!
