Head Hitting the sides

Posted · Head Hitting the sides

Hi

when I was printing something the other day that was quite large, the print head hit the right side when doing the skirt. it kind of kept going fine so i just left it as after the skirt it was fine.

the thing that puzzled me is that it was blue in cura not grey and was central on the bed.

I have now just started to try and print one of those wallets from XYZ.

It was grey when i loaded it and after a lot of playing around i found it went blue after turning the skirt off.

I kind of moved it away from the right side as much as i could as its very wide but when i started the print it hit the front and the belt jumped a tooth with a bang.

So, If the item in cura is blue is this meant to mean its ok and won't collide or is it just saying yip thats on the glass or do I have a setting off?

Thanks
