Ok so you have a V1.0 Printer setup in what appears to be a 4×4 configuration. If you’re not using all 4 hotends in Synchronous mode, start by removing Hotends 2,3 and 4. This increases the bed size per (now single) nozzle to around 490×490. It also looks like you could do with some more reliable hotends. The old Merlins were cutting edge at the time, but these days, I think you’d be better off with one of these : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32844028127.html?spm=2114.12057483.0.0.3e903466SXiVXj

Make sure you select 1.75mm 12v All Metal if printing high volume / fast or PTFE lining if printing slower/ high res / more accurate stuff as PTFE lined hotends experience less “heat creep” than all metal hotends meaning you can get away with ultrafine layer heights.
