Need Help Setting Machine Head Size

Recommended Posts

Posted · Need Help Setting Machine Head Size

Hi guys, let me first start off by saying that I don't own an ultimaker, but I absolutely love cura and it's the only slicer I use. I used to have a printrbot simple and that was easy for the head size to set up, but now I upgraded my simple to a printrbot plus and don't really know how to set the head size, what dimensions should I use per the picture below. I know I need a square around the head (Ubis Hot End) but not sure what else.

Because the gantry on that printer is quite low, I don't think the head-size settings will be much of a use to you. They are used for one-at-a-time printing. And define the area that the head needs to avoid to hit a print while printing another print.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
