Cura won't slice a print with a height above 52 mm??!?

Posted · Cura won't slice a print with a height above 52 mm??!?

I have an Ultimaker 2+ with Cura 2.1.2.

I'm trying to print a set of pieces with different heights. I noticed that when I put in the taller ones, they automatically scaled down to 52 mm. When I changed them back, Cura wouldn't slice the project. Trying something else, I disabled automatic scaling. When I added the > 52 mm print, it wouldn't slice. I looked through Cura settings to see if anything jumped out at me. Nothing, so I looked online. Everywhere online. The max print volume for the Ultimaker 2+ should be around 205 mm, but Cura won't let me do anything above 52 mm. I've seen some promising answers about changing certain settings, but my Cura doesn't seem to have those settings. If the solution is complex, fine, I'll work on it. If it's simple, fine, I'll smack my forehead and get it done.

You're printing one at a time. The distance from the nozzle tip to the axis is the max height at that point.

Try changing the print sequence setting to all at once.

*Facepalm* Thanks, nallath. Works like a charm.

Something I don't understand, if I am printing One at a time but I'm only printing one thing - why is the height limited since the height of the nozzle will never be higher or lower than the currently printed layer? But, thank you. That clears up a huge frustration here :)

Because the buildvolume object has no notion of there being multiple objects on the scene.

I will add a issue to our tracker to remedy this.

**edit** For our reference; CURA-2312
