Can you check the file In layer view in cura? It may look fine on the normal view.

Does it fit the build volume with no problem or is it really close to the edge?

 

Hello thanks for replying i figured it out and the print edge is very close to its limits when the head comes around to do that corner the fan scraps the side of the wall.

lucky its only a prototype so not much of an issue however i'm sure its not meant to touch the sides so any ideas what could be causing this to happen?

Bend the fans in a bit. With power off push the head to extremes. The black plastic head should hit the black plastic side block before the fan hits the wall. Maybe take a photo or google photos of um2 head.

    • "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.
