maybe a bug? exceeds build volume with raft

Recommended Posts

I am trying to print a very simple (and small) shape with a raft and I am unable to print it.  Cura shows no errors and sends the job to the printer without issue, but by the time it hits the printer, I get an error that the print exceeds the build volume and I can't start the print.  If I change to a skirt or brim, it has no error.

 

Here is how the print looks on the S5 with the raft

UPDATE:  Apparently, it is only an issue when using Nylon as the material...both generic and Ultimaker brand.  If I choose a different material, I get no errors.  Any suggestions?

I had got the same error that a small object extend the build volume. I used both print cores and i had moved the prime tower a print before. After correcting the position of the prime tower every thing works. It was a little bit funny, because you can't see the prime tower at this point of placing the object. You have to remember what you have done the print before.

    • "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.
