Posted · Cura improper build plate size for Ultimaker 2+

This happens a few times when I open Cura and I'm not sure why. The build plate size is square and not filling up the whole space. There's a huge part that's cut off on the right side. It's supposed to fill up the whole build plate. I have the most recent version of Cura and I'm not sure what settings would have caused this and I don't know how to permanently solve it.

    This is due to the UM2+ only having one nozzle on the LHS of the print head. This makes it not possible for it to print all the way to the RHS edge of the bed

    Well that makes sense. I'm not sure why I remember it looking different, maybe the update changed how it looked and I thought something went wrong.
