Print area in CURA on UM2+

Hi All

 

I do have a question, regarding my Ultimaker 2+ and Cura.

As shown in the picture, I have a region on the right I cant use.

 

How can I make that printing area accessible?

 

Regards

    Short answer: you can't.

     

    Longer answer: If you have a close look at the printhead, you will see that the nozzel is not in the center of the head. It is a couple of mm to the left, originally conceived to leave room for an additional extruder; the non-plus version of the UM2(extended) had additional holes to the right of the nozzle. If you move the bed close to the head, and then manually move the head from left to right, you can see that the head reaches further to the left of the buildplate than to the right of the buildplate.
