Permanent slicing bug/limitation of Cura from 2.0 till now (4.4)

Posted · Permanent slicing bug/limitation of Cura from 2.0 till now (4.4)

I've found a problem that is permanent in all these years of Cura distribution, but I never report it because I've thought someone will report it and I don't know how to use the ticket bug system.

The problem is when you try to slice an item that is almost as big on its higher layer part as the building plate configured in Cura, but the base of it is quite small, if you configure any type of build plate adhesion it counts the added X,Y width of the raft/brim etc on the total width of the item instead of only the base that it will eventually slice so the slicer outputs a warning that it can't slice because the maximum width of item is bigger than the building plate that of course is wrong.


What I'm asking here is if anyone can help me of how to use the bug report system to report it, help me with the description because I'm not a native English speaker, or open a ticket directly.

    This is somewhat intentional. The current way that the area is computed is fairly complex and in order to keep the complexity somewhat in check, we used the more naive solution.

        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.
