Posted · Setting Cura for a Custom Delta

Hello to all the community! I am new here :)

I have a Colido D1315 PLA 3d printer (it's a Delta) and I have always used the related software for slicing and 3d printing.
Overall the prints are OK, the 3d printer is well calibrated.
But since I have some issues with the quality of the printing, and even trying different settings did not help, I decide to give a try with another Slicer and so I chose Ultimaker Cura...

Now, Cura doesn't have automatic settings for my 3d printer... But I can add it as Custom.
The 3d printer is a Delta, I had set the parameters related to volume and area, the filament diameter 1.75 and the nozzle (0.4)

As Gcode Flavor I tried the Marlin and the Griffin ( but I don't know how much impact they can have)

I tried to do a first print, with the Malrlin flavor, and the print did not come out well, I stopped it at midprint because the model was ruined...
With the Griffin Gcode it went better, the object was printed but the quality was poor (lots of perimeters bubble)

Any suggestions on the settings? Do I have to set some other things?
It the Gcode Flavor so relevant to the quality of the 3d printed object?

I'am attaching some screenshot of the custom 3d printer settings.
