Cura does not seem let the full print area to be used. My printer is a Lulzbot Mini. The design illustrated below can be found here.


Cura is likely factoring in your skirt. Change the skirt lines to 0 and you might be able to print. Cura also seems to have an in-built build size offset of about 2mm. I can't seem to get rid of it in any way other than to change the build size.

  • $\begingroup$ Click the button next to the dropdown. You will find options for the skirt there. A skirt is not counted as a "platform adhesion type," apparently. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Setting "Start distance (mm)" to 0 fixed it. Thanks! $\endgroup$ Feb 25 '16 at 23:11
