Real maximum size

Hello

I´ve been trying the printer (A5) and the software Cura and I´ve realized that, if you place a object with the maximun printable size, Cura is not able to slice it.
The object appears in grey and a message with the text:
"Unable to slice. Nothing to slice because none of the models fit the build volume. Please scale or rotate models to fit."
I tried to scale the object and, when the size on X and Y was 288.6 mm, the object turned to yelloy and the slicing is possible.
Is that actually the real maximum printing size?
Or should I revise my printer settings?

Thanks in advance.

    Don't forget about the brim or skirt around your print, this will increase the actual print size on the bed.

    Thank you Samuel.
    You were right, I´ve deactivate the skirt and the object can be sliced.

    I wish there was a "purge nozzle" option other than skirt or brim. I guess some custom gcode would do it. It looks like slic3r prusa edition has it but I see some complaints about it.
