Trying to print an object that is greater than 250mm tall (Z), but the software is telling me that the object is outside the print area.  The interface shows that the height is what is out of range, but it doesn't make sense as my 3D printer (Artillery Sidewinder X1 can print up to 400mm.

Is there a setting or code I have to change to enable my full print volume capabilities?

Thanks, Chip

Did you define the printer dimensions correctly in your software (slicer software, Octoprint, etc....)?

Yes, as far as I can tell.  It has dimension settings for X and Y, but I did not see a place to set the Z axis??

Thanks

Hi Chip,

Z axis Height is on the printer settings general page, "Maximum Print Height"

Thank you so much, I missed this setting because I had the software configured for "SIMPLE" and had to change it to Expert to be able to see the general printer setting so I could change the Z maximum height!

Thanks and sorry I missed/overlooked that - that was very helpful!
