Cura adding too much workspace

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.
