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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
