In this study, we consider the nonlinear Schödinger equation (NLS) with the zero-boundary condition on a two- or three-dimensional large finite cubic lattice. We prove that its solution converges to that of the NLS on the entire Euclidean space with simultaneous reduction in the lattice distance and expansion of the domain. Moreover, we obtain a precise global-in-time bound for the rate of convergence. Our proof heavily relies on Strichartz estimates on a finite lattice. A key observation is that, compared to the case of a lattice with a fixed size (Hong et al., 2021), the loss of regularity in Strichartz estimates can be reduced as the domain expands, depending on the speed of expansion. This allows us to address the physically important three-dimensional case.
