problem with print size

Recommended Posts

I own the Anycubic i3 MEGA and it is defined in Cura 3.4.1 with the correct settings.

 

But i´m NOT able to slice a part with 210x210 mm (wich is my print size).

I sent it to a frind with Simplfy3D, he sliced it for me and now its printing.

Any idea why this happens? I disabled skirt, brim and so on.

Cura stuff around your print and forbids you from slicing if that extra stuff would move outside the build volume (since that could damage your printer). Some of the stuff that's added around your print includes:

  • Brim
  • Skirt
  • Raft
  • Avoid Objects when Travelling
  • Draft Shield

With default settings, setting the brim size to 0 and disabling Avoid Objects When Travelling will allow you to print stuff using the maximum volume of your printer.

    • "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.
