Cura 2.3 doesn't recognize UM3 Extended build volume... off by 40%!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.3 doesn't recognize UM3 Extended build volume... off by 40%!

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.
