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?
