delete / edit print plate boundaries

Recommended Posts

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...

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
