UM3: Detected move outside of normal printer volume

Recommended Posts

I'm using Cura 2.6.1 (newest release) on a UM3.

I keep getting this "Detected move outside of normal printer volume" even if I'm printing a 1" block in the center of the build plate!!!

I rarely print anything larger than a few inches, and I always center my prints.

What is causing it, and how do I fix it? I had this issue with the previous cura, but thought the new version would have taken care of it.

This is caused by a miscommunication between the Linux board and the Atmel board.

There's several causes, most of which (but unfortunately 1 not yet) are solved in the firmware release 3.7 which appeared less than a week ago.

Did you already upgrade your printer to 3.7?

I haven't upgraded the firmware yet - will do as soon as I can and see how that goes.

What is the 1 case that is not fixed?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
