Cura adding too much workspace

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain why it's adding so much space on the bed? I know the print head isn't a limiting factor.

The picture shows that it fits but I would like to scale it larger but that gray area overhangs the build area even though nothing needs to be there. I have tried disabling any raft, skirt or brim.

Check your Print Sequence setting, down at the bottom of the list under Special Modes. If it's set to "One at a Time," try changing it to "All at Once" and see if that clears things up. If that doesn't change anything, it might be a problem with the model itself. Sometimes some stray/invisible geometry can change the overall dimensions of a part, even though you can't actually see the extra bits.

    • "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.
