Ender 2 Settings Cura 3.1.0

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ender 2 Settings Cura 3.1.0

Hi there,

 

I just received my Ender-2 and printed to example cat. Worked like a dream. Now I want to print other models, wanted to use CURA, but as it seems the Ender-2 is not in the list of default printers. Can anybody tell me which settings to use?

 

Many thanks.

 

Regards

You need to add your printer as a custom printer. Go to the menu at the top of your screen and select Settings/Printer/Add printer.  This will display a dialogue box, select the option “Custom”; this will display another dialogue box. Enter a name for your printer at the bottom, e.g. "Ender-2" and press the “Custom” button at bottom right. This displays the Machine settings dialogue box for your printer. Most of the entries are self explanatory but if you need help come back :)

This is just what I need to know also. I have set my bed size, ticked origin at centre, (except I still cant get a print to start at the centre.

Gcode flavor is set to Marlin, not sure if that is right.

It seems by default to have some g-code start and end code but not sure how it got there or whether it is right .

The extruder nozzle settings look right but I dont know what the nozzle offset should be, currently 0

If anyone could advise me of any other default setting that are appropriate I would much appreciate it.

 

Thanks

 

Roger
