Stop Ultimaker s5 from printing pole next to model

Posted · Stop Ultimaker s5 from printing pole next to model

Hi all,


My model is too wide for the build plate so I rotated it 90 degrees and am printing it on its side. For some reason it's adding this pole/tube in the corner, anyone know why or how I can stop it?

    Hi Juliareed,


    that's the prime tower, that's normally used only for dual extrusion (helps cleaning the nozzles and keep the "wrong" filament out of the print). It can be controlled in Cura, custom settings, submenu "Dual Extrusion", "Enable Prime Tower".
