Add feature to "force slicing" even when outside of build volume.

Posted · Add feature to "force slicing" even when outside of build volume.

Maybe I'm the only one with this "problem", but my printhead/nozzle is allowed to move (and therefore print) outside of the build plate/bed area (originally it was a prusa-styled dual-extruder printer, so it has a longer x-axis). As such, I believe it would be useful to have a "slice anyways" option, to "force" slicing even when for example a model is outside of the build area, as the one shown in the picture.



Here's my 2-cent worth opinion, again if it's just me who has a weird setup like this one then ignore the issue, but I believe this could be used as a "trick" to print larger objects on many dual-extruder printers.


Thank you

      • 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!

      • 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.
