Using Max Build Volume of Ultimaker 3D Printer

Sometimes you have to print at the max build volume of your 3D printer. You'll get the error: "does not fit build volume". I have an Ultimaker and the easiest slicer to use is Cura. And sometimes I want the full build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm. If you set the "skirt link count" to zero, it won't print the line around the part so you can get the full x and/or y. As you may know the reason for the skirt is so that the printer gets a consistent extrusion of the filament, but I you need the full bed size, then you need the full bed size. Also turn off brim and set build plate adhesion to "none". Lastly set "travel avoid distance" to 0. Do it in that order for best results.
