Cura showing an incorrect build area


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura showing an incorrect build area

I'm using the latest version of Cura with a Printrbot Simple Metal.

My printer has a build area of 152.4mm^3. This is set properly in my EEPROM M211 settings.

In Cura's Machine Settings, I have the Build Area set to 152.2.4mm^3 as well.

However, Cura will not let me print anything larger than 149.9mm. Even with skirt set to zero, a print with 150mm in X and Y is showing up grayed out, and "Scale To Maximum" scales it down to ~149mm.

Is there a way to get Cura to give me the correct/full build area?

    Look in the machine settings.  You can set the dimensions of your printer (diameter) in there.

     

    As I mentioned in my post, I did that already.

    Also it's a square bed, not circular.
