Importing Ender 5 information into Cura 4

Recommended Posts

Posted · Importing Ender 5 information into Cura 4

I have an Ender 5 on the way and this is my first time using Cura. I downloaded Cura 4 but it seems that the profile from Creality is in json format and just from scouting around the internet it looks like Cura 4 doesn't use the same configuration files as Cura 3. How would I go about importing the following information into Cura to setup an Ender 5? Or should I just stick to Cura 3.4.1 as supplied by Creality on their USB stick?

Cura 3 uses the same file types as Cura 4. You would need to copy another file as well, which can be found under extruders (creatily_cr_10_extruder_0.def.json).
If you put those in the same location as where 3.4 put them (but then for 4.0) it should be picked up.
