Ultimaker 3 Printable Area Smaller than stated...

My Ultimaker 3 is unable to print 200x200x8 due to the printable areas blocking (clips etc) even with no adhesion, 1 nozzle and the default printhead settings? Am I doing something wrong?

    Because of the 4 clips you can print a "cross" shape that is 233X215 that avoids the clips.  But not a rectangle shape that is 233X215.  Because of the clips.

     

    Oh - one more thing - it might not be enough to just use only one nozzle.  I think you actually have to disable that core.  It should have an X through it in cura.

    Well if you have a printer without the clips then there is a way to remove those "avoid" areas.  But otherwise, "no".
