Large Phantom Base


Recommended Posts

Posted · Large Phantom Base

I can't figure out what I did, or how to undo it.

Now every time I import and object into Cura,m it has a large phantom skirt-like object.


This is not the skirt or the brim. it is something else.


The result is that I am very limited in the size of what I can print because if this phantom skirt goes outside of the standard print area, Cura won't create a gcode.

Also note that if I keep things small and everything fits, this phantom brim does not print.

Any ideas?

    I guess it must be something somewhere in your design that has such a big shape? Maybe a part way out of view on top?


    Or incorrect printer head-size settings, or an incorrect printer, so it thinks it has a very large print head? So it will stay clear of the edges, to not bang the head into the wall?


    Something along this line of thinking?
