Model does not fit to Ultimaker 3 print area?

Posted · Model does not fit to Ultimaker 3 print area?


I am using an Ultimaker 3 for quite some time now, but I have never printed such a big model:
I want to print a case with the dimensions 215x125x12mm. According to the official documentation, the Ultimaker has a bigger printing area. But still, I can not get it working with Cura. Why is that?

Thank you for any help.

    Do this at your own risk.

    You can extend the printer build plate size in the settings you have posted. I also ran into the same problem as you and increased it just 5mm and that was enough. This worked on the UM 2+ I have never tried on my S5 so I can not say it works for all system.
