Error: "Trying to print outside printable area" - How to align Cura with the UM2+ printer settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Error: "Trying to print outside printable area" - How to align Cura with the UM2+ printer settings



I have an Ultimaker 2+ with the below Cura settings:

  • X (width): 223 mm
  • Y (Depth): 223 mm
  • Z (Height): 205 mm


I'm trying to print multiple parts and want to maximise the area. I'm printing without any adhesion (brim, skirt etc) and support. Cura is showing that all parts are within the printable area, but when I try to print it from the SD-card I get the error "Trying to print outside printable area".  This happens also if I manually move the parts "well within" the boundaries in Cura.


How can I ensure that Cura is using the same boundaries as the printer is applying so that I don't get this error. 


Appreciate any help and support.
