Ultimaker 2 build volume issue Cura 2.1.2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 build volume issue Cura 2.1.2

Here's a weird thing. I loaded a part into Cura 2.1.2 and it auto scaled it to 85%. The strange thing is that the part was only 65mm tall. I only noticed it was auto scaling (I've since turned that off) when I found the part to be a lot smaller than I thought it should be. I then scaled the part back to 100% (101 to compensate for shrinkage), and it then refused to slice. I double checked the part for hidden mesh, but there wasn't any. I then changed the machine from Ultimaker 2 regular to Extended and it was suddenly fine.

Having had a look in Cura 2.1.2 now, scaling an object, it appears the Ultimaker 2 machine settings don't support any object taller than 50mm.. I checked to see what would happen if I used 2+ settings and it seemed fine then. Is there anywhere I can amend this?

Change your print sequence to all at once.

There it is! Thanks! (After over two years of using this thing you'd think I'd have learned by now..)

What threw me is that it didn't give the same issue in any of the other machine settings..
