Ultimaker S5 build size

Hi @Stefania Dinea

when I load a model of the same dimensions it covers a larger part of the surface. That is interesting ?

The build volume of an Ultimaker S5 = 330 x 240 x 300 mm, so a 245mm part (your Y) wouldn't fit I reckon. 

I've disabled brim, skirt, prime blob. Are you allowed to scale your model?

    But I don't think the nozzles can reach the full front side of the glass plate because of the front fan bracket touching the doors/frame.

    glas plate you have 270 ???

    Push the head as far back as it goes and note the spot.  Then push it to the front and measure the difference.  I doubt it reaches 270mm.

     

    Anyway to answer your original question:

    set "travel avoid distance" to zero.
    disable brim and skirt both!

    I followed the directions as @gr5sugested, but at those dimensions, I am not able to fit it on the plate at all.

    But, you can turn it up to the side and it fits nicely.

    Y is 240mm. Not one millimeter more... ?

    Hello,

     

    I gave up trying to print it flat, and went for the obvious solution and printed it standing with pva added just touching the build plate, oh well, lost like 12 hours but rather have a success than insist on it working another way. Thanks for the useful tips.
