Posted · Max build volume

Hi Guys,

 

I have been working with Ultimakers for almost 4 years now, but this is the first time I really run into this problem and i was wondering if anyone can help me. I want to print something on the Ultimaker S5 of 330x150x11. The Ultimaker S5 states that it has a build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm however it does not fit (the grey area overlaps it). Is there some setting I can enable to use the max buildvolume or is this one of those marketing things were the ultimakers max build volume is really 320x230x290mm, cause that would be rather dissapointing. Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards,

Job

Hello, 

 

I did a test on Cura 3.6 and it cannot print 330mm in X.

The max value being 326.8.

That is what i got as well, but i kinda want to know why. Is it a setting (safety perhaps) or are they just kinda generous with rounding up the size of the buildplate.

I'm not sure what's going on. Build volume has always been a very eluding mistress. There are a lot of hardware tolerances and even software tolerances to take into account.

 

In order to get the maximum out of Cura, you should set the platform adhesion to none and turn off support.

      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.
