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

Posted · 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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
