    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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
