delete / edit print plate boundaries


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · delete / edit print plate boundaries

Hello,

 

I would like to print an object with 199x199 mm. Shouldn't be a problem with the UM3, which is advertised with 215x215 mm.

Unfortunately it is. Cura has grey "no print" areas which prevent me from doing this. I have the following settings adjusted:

 

- Only left extruder in use

- no prime tower

- no prime blob

- no skirt / brim / raft

 

The model still wouldn't fit with more than 97% scale. The areas that are still grey are from the plate clamps, the nozzle switch and the camera I suppose.

When I slice the modle in S3D it and position it correctly on the plate, it gets printed by the printer without any collisions, the dimensions are as desired when the print is finished.

 

So is there any possibility I could slice and print that model out of Cura?

 

Thanks for the help!

 

Edit: Screenshots of both slicers (Cura / S3D) attached. The S3D gcode printed very well, so it's physically possible if Cura would let me...
