    A physical limitation to the UM3. The left nozzle can print all the way to the left edge, the right nozzle can print all the way to the right edge. The decrease you see on the right part is the distance between both nozzles, I think about 15mm. Perhaps you can modify your model so it prints the right part with the right nozzle?


    To remove this limitation the housing for the S3/S5 printers was made wider so the printhead can move the extra distance.
