I literally just started printing today with the purchase of a brand new Ender 3 Pro, did a test print and figured out the fastest I could print with good quality, then went to Thingiverse and found the files for an ODST helmet I want to print. Got the file in Cura right now and scaled so it fits the plate, but it isn't slicing. Says "please review settings and check if your models fit within build volume, are assigned to an enabled extruder, and are not set as modifier meshes" 

Send help I'm going crazy it's been 45 minutes..

    Hey @HelmetBoi,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    I'm glad you were able to figure out what you needed.

    You are actually not the first person to encounter this issue and we are looking to improve this behavior. 
    How can we improve this message to make it more clear that your model cannot be placed in the gray border?

    Hi Mari,

     

    It might help a lot if Cura would figure out itself which one of the three mentioned possible reasons is causing the issue and then would just complain about the one which actually applies. For example: "Your model does not fit into the build volume. You can try to optimize placement and orientation. Additionally reducing the size of the brim or raft might give some extra space."

     

    Best regards,
    Michael
