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?

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 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.

    • "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.
