Resolved - 3.5 Unable to slice.. doesn't fit error but it does fit (works with 3.4.1 too)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Resolved - 3.5 Unable to slice.. doesn't fit error but it does fit (works with 3.4.1 too)

I loaded a model that fits inside the bed at 80% size (207.7 x 290.4 x 74.6mm on a 300x300x400 bed) and used Arrange All Models but Cura 3.5 says it is unable to slice because it doesn't fit.  I had previously figured out that 80% size would fit with Cura 3.4.1 and I am able to slice it in Cura 3.4.1.  Reducing it to 80% and with it centered on the bed, Cura 3.5 just gives the error about not fitting the bed.  If I look all around the object it is definitely inside the bed area and I used Arrange All Models to make sure.


Here are pictures of 3.4.1 and 3.5 as well as the STL file.


3.4.1 that doesn't give the fit error.



This is 3.5 and gives an error about unable to slice.

Here is the STL.

    You are showing layer view so it is a bit hard to see what is going on, but are all your settings the same? Same brim or plate adhesion, same everything? Maybe it just needs to be moved?


    If you take a look at your plate area, in 3.41 does not have the same grey shadow around the edges as it does in your second picture. This says that something is taking up some of your real estate on the build plate, hence the question about the brim or whatnot.

    Good Day everyone I am having this same issue but mine is not in the brim.  I am using an Ender 3 max but for profile i used ender 3 and adjusted bed dimensions becuase there is no E3 max to choose from.  It shows the bed correctly but has what appears to be the smaller original ender 3 bed in a light gray color.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  bckt.thumb.png.8285803ecb8254d2091d9eb4b52ace4e.png

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
