Not full build plate usable in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Not full build plate usable in Cura

Hi.

 

I'm new to Cura and the UM3 and today I wondered why I can't use the full build plate in Cura.

I tried to create a 200x200x0.2 square to check the level of my bed and I can't get it to slice.

Even a 190x190 square I can't fit onto the bed in Cura to get it to slice.

Is there maybe a setting I'm not aware of that reduces the available bed size in Cura?

 

Greetings

Saij

Have you selected build plate adhesion with a brim? If so deselect as this will increase the o/a size of your print.

A skirt still requires room on the buildplate. Go into the Custom settings, and set Build Plate adhesion to "None". If you don't use the second extruder in this print, disable that extruder. There are a couple of other settings that also affect the grey shaded area around the build volume.

Some support settings and the prime tower for example. So all settings which need some space beside the object itself.

207mm x 195.6mm x 200mm This is the max size cube that will fit on the build plate with every thing switched off including printcore 2 and the prime Blob. This is a 215x215x200 block that I have scaled in Cura. UM3 nothing like the spec.👎
