Wrong dimensions of AnyCubic 4max in cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wrong dimensions of AnyCubic 4max in cura

Hello, I realized that the dimensions of my 3d printer is not the same as Cura shows me about it. I saw in Cura the object seems to fill the whole area of the bed but when printing there is a space that I can't see in Cura.


My 3d printer is an Any Cubic 4 max pro. 


Does anyone else have the same problem?

    First of all - don't get your printing surface and your printing area confused.  I used to all the time.  Your print head might not be able to reach all 4 corners of your print surface.  So with power off, push the head around and see where the limits are before changing anything.


    Then if you want you can update the print area for your printer. Go to left side of screen in PREPARE mode.  Click on your printer, then do "manage printers" then "machine settings"


    On this screen you can adjust your print area (but not your build surface so what you see on the bed margins won't match what you see in the Cura gui).
