printing volume differentiation

Posted · printing volume differentiation

Hello,

I'm wondering why when in the machine settings I set the maximum width and depth to 206mm the model turns orange only if it's smaller that W:189,7mm D189,9mm ?

When I scale it to max, it goes to 191mm but it's gray.

Also Cura doen't seem to care about its height. I can have a model higher than the maximum printing height and it turns orange and calculates the toolpath.

Do I have to adjust something in the software or at the printer?

Thanks

Achilleas

Is it because the model is being scaled to physically fit the dimensions, but then your skirt/brim settings would cause the print to go outside of the print area?

I'm not sure you can... If the model is grayed, it doesn't slice it afaik - so layer view either shows nothing, or the results of the last successful slice. Which can be quite confusing...

If you go to "layer view" you'll probably see the problem illuminarti pointed out.

 

Yes you can't see anything because it doesn't calculate anything.

But seams logical what you say illuminarti.

I don't know if you model reaches the corners but if the skirt or brim or model touches any of the 4 gray areas where the clips go then it also won't slice it.

The grey areas gr5 refers to are the reserved spaces for the glass plate clips on the UM2. However, given the sizes you're talking about, I presume you don't have a UM2, so you don't get those.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
