Longer LK4 Pro with Cura v4.11

 

Cura displays Unable to slice warning after I click Slice, advising that the model is outside the printable area of the printer.

 

Longer LK4 Pro printable area (aka, "build volume") is 220 x 220 x 250 mm. My model is 216 x 152 x 76, clearly within limits of the printer.

 

The printer profile within Cura shows the correct dimensions for this printer. It's as my model is tripping some kind of "printing safety buffer" or similar. 

 

How do I override whatever is inducing this error and force Cura to slice?

    It's the Build Plate Adhesion.  If you are using a skirt change Skirt Line Count to "1" and the Skirt Distance to 1 or 2.

    The gray area will change size based on the Skirt/Brim width and it's distance from the model.
