Why is Cura only allowing me to print max 188x188mm when I have a 225x225mm build plate?

Hello,

I am printing a base for my drone and I need to print it in one piece.

The problem is that my drone measures 200x200mm and Cura is only allowing me to print a max surface of 190x188mm. I don't understand why this is the case since the build plate measures 225x225mm and I've tried to see how far the nozzle can go and I figured out it could easily print at least 200x200mm.

Do anybody have a solution for printing large models up to 200x200mm? Is there a setting in Cura, do I have to downgrade it to an older version? Any suggestion is welcome!

Thanks.

    Okay, nevermind, I just figured it out. I forgot that I had activated the brim in the platform adhesion type (advanced settings) which added a layer of 20mm all around the print. I reduced the layer size and all's good now!
