Build volume issue

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I am currently evaluating what I might and can do with the Ultimaker 3 using the latest release of Cura software.

My part measures 178.0 x 146.0 x 12.0 mm which is significantly smaller than the build volume specification of 215 x 215 x 200 mm. I get a message stating "Nothing to slice because non of the models fit the build volume. Please scale or rotate to fit." Please explain...Why is that?

I can scale down and it will work. My question: Why is a part that is smaller than the specified build volume not able to print at 100% scale (178.0 x 146.0 x 12.0 mm)?

Thank you,

Mike Fulton

Try to check the brim since by defauis quite big. Also the prime tower uses space, cura 2.4 (beta, so wait if you can for final stable release) doesn't use prime tower for default profiles.

So, your issue is the prime tower, move it (hidden option on advance). Unlock all options or search it to change the settings.
