build volume exceeded on S5

Recommended Posts

Cura slices and sends file to my S5. But S5 won't print: "Exceeds Build Volume".

 

Why? Is this a bug?

Can you send a screen shot of Cura before you send the file to the printer ?

I have contacted Ultimaker support about this.

 

There are additional parameters that can be set on the S5 printer that are not accounted for in Cura.

In my case, the model that I am printing is over 228mm in the y-axis. 

 

Here is Ultimaker's support comments:

Cura should detect when the model is out of bounds and not allow it to slice.

I believe this issue is due to the "Support Horizontal Expansion" function. This is 3mm by default, by lowering this to 1mm, I was able to print your model.

Support horizontal expansion will increase the support structure's size in the X/Y direction by the set amount to make the structure more stable. When this expansion reaches out of the build area it triggers the error on the printer instead of in Cura.
