cura models have large outline and does not fit on creality cr-10 v3

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can provide!


I have a creality cr-10 v3.

There seems to be consensus to use the cr-10 cura profile.


The grey outline on my models are very large and only allows me to slice objects up to 230mm on a 300x300 print bed. 

I know there are issues on the ender 3 and disallowed areas on the borders but I seem to be having a different problem.

The grey area outlining the models seems to be huge even when I use "none" for bed adhesion etc.


You can see from the pictures below that there is no disallowed border but a really wide grey shadow even though there is no bed adhesion.

    With the model loaded in Cura use the File | Save Project command and post the 3mf project file here.  I haven't seen that before and with just that one view as evidence I'm tending to think it's something in the model file.  The model will be contained in the project file.


    One thing you can do right away is to rotate that model 45° and see if it will fit diagonally.


    There are also tricks you can do by making the build plate larger in the Cura Machine Settings and then manually adjusting the home offsets in the gcode file with an M206 line to compensate.  Just making the build plate larger you should get it to slice and maybe something will stick out and provide a clue in the preview.


    All the CR10 models are very similar so whether it's a v3, or a wifi model, or other sub-model, it's hard to go wrong using the base CR10 definition.
