The Ultimaker 3 Extended build volume is supposed to be 215x215x300mm but Cura 2.3 gives an error message that the model is too large and won't slice a model any larger than 161x161x219mm (6x6x8 inches). This is off by 40% !!

Does anyone have a work around or have the solution?

    Under "Buildplate adhesion", make sure you select Brim for the adhesion type, and set Brim Width to 0.

    The maximum size I can resize an object to with that setting on a UM3 is 191.89 * 207.89 * 299.99 mm. This is fairly close to the advertised build volume for dual extrusion prints. Cura currently cannot create single-extrusion prints that take advantage of the additional space in the x-direction, but I am fairly sure a future update will.

      • 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
