What represents the grey area around a model? I thought initially it's because of a brim around the model, but in the profile the brim width = 0 and build plate adhesion = None

Thanks a lot

    If you have Special Modes | Print Sequence | "One at a time" enabled then it's the area your print head takes up.  You can't put another part in the gray or the print head will hit it when it lowers to print the next part.  That's actually true for people who bother to keep the Print Head size and Gantry Height up to date in the settings.  Disallowed areas for brim/skirt are around the periphery and if you have them shut off then the gray doesn't show.

     

    With that piece you're printing another model would have to be the shape of a piece of linguini.  (I was going to say spaghetti but that's a bad word in 3d printing.)

    Thanks a lot, now I understand. I did not intend to print a second "linguini":) model in the same print

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
