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.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
