Cura changed build plate size on S5 - parts no longer fit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura changed build plate size on S5 - parts no longer fit

I laid these parts out in Cura 3.6 about a year ago. Printing on S5 every week and worked great. I then upgrade the S5 with the Air Manager and need to reslice with Cura 4.4.1 to add build volume temp settings. Now it thinks the parts won't fit. I really need to over ride this or get it fixed!!

 

See attached screen shots.

 

Thanks for the help,

Roland

Might be a long shot but I have seen Cura sometimes think its a dual extrusion print, even if it isnt, and if Prime tower is enabled it will shrink the print area.

It is a dual extrusion with a prime tower but it worked perfect in Cura 3.6 so they changed the build size somehow and caused the problem.

Is the machine settings are the same in the preferences ?

 

 

This is in 3.6

This support page mentions all settings that have an influence on those "forbidden areas". It's still valid for the S5.

Good luck!

The machine settings are identical between both versions of Cura.

Thanks for the suggestion, but nothing changed when adjusting these settings.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
