Placing my .STL diagonally

Posted · Placing my .STL diagonally

Hello,

I have a larger item to print and can only do it by placing it diagonally. Weird thing is that CURA automatically scales it smaller. Even with switching off the auto scale feature it keeps doing it.

I assume that even diagonally it won't work but why doesn't it show me(grey), as it does when I load it up flat?

Any ideas here?

Thanks.

    are you referring to the measurements of the x - y -z? (scale is still at 1.0)

    because these measurements are the 'bounding box' of your model, and not the actual length of your model. Try to rotate your model in this position so the length of the model is in the x direction and see what the size is.. It will grey out but will show if your model is scaled or not..

      • 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.
