Model not fitting within "cube" in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Model not fitting within "cube" in Cura


I am wondering what to do when a model doesn't fit within the visual print "cube" in Cura.


For example, I open an .stl in Cure and sometimes the model is outside this "cube"


Sometimes the model is clearly to big, so I click on it and scale it.  However even though visually it is much smaller and should easily 'fit' inside the cube, the model sits to the right, and it cannot be sliced (gives an error).


Is there a way to correct this situation?


Or does this imply the model/file is incompatible with my printer and can not be used (even is scaled, adjusted etc)


Thank you
