Hello, I'm aiming to print a simple box of 7x6x 5"  But it is giving me this error. Please let me know what I can do to solve it. It is an urgent project and needs to be printed ASAP

    I'm guessing your box is "close" to the size of your printer's abilities.  You can lookup what Cura thinks your print volume is by:


    Go to left side of screen in PREPARE mode.  Click on your printer, then do "manage printers" then "machine settings"


    If your object dimensions are smaller than those dimensions then there are still a few things to do.  Some settings to change such that cura doesn't print outside your box.


    set "travel avoid distance" to zero.
    disable brim and skirt both!
