Bed size Ender 5 Cura 4

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bed size Ender 5 Cura 4

Hi everyone,

 

I just did a fresh install of cura 4.4, and selected the provided Ender5 profile.

As soon as I try to slice a model with dimensions bigger than 197mm (x or y), Cura tells me the model does not fit the build volume.

197mm is far off the default 220mm.

Where is the non-printable area (grey) defined (or is there another reason it won't allow larger dimensions than 197mm)?

 

Any ideas and tips would be much appreciated!

 

Thx!

Peter

Cura accounts for space required by a brim or skirt. If you set the buildplate adhesion type to "None", you can use more of your buildplate.

Yes, indeed... thanx for your quick response!

However, this should not always be necessary.

The model I'm trying to print is an upside down cone shape.

At the top it has a diameter of 210mm, but at the bottom a diameter of only 70mm.

So plenty of room for a brim or skirt. 

Cura should actually only use dimensions of the first layer to calculate the necessary space for brim or skirt.

Instead, cura uses the overall dimensions...

 

FYI: the reason why I print this upside down, is because it's printed in vase mode and will be used as a lamp shade

 

Thanks again for your response!

Peter
