Hi! I am very new to 3D printing. I just set up my Anet ET4 printer. It came with an older version of Cura. I would like to use the newest 4.4 version. Has anyone set up a profile or printer settings that could help me to get Cura to work with my printer?

 

Thank you, in advance!

    Yes I was looking also and found someone saying that they used the creality CR10 Pro S printer in cura and changed the build size and so I tried it and it worked. Its all in the start and end G code so after I verified that it worked I had already set up profile that I just copied the start and end codes to my profile and then deleted the CR10 Pro S as I don't have that printer but you could just keep that one and the build side and your good to go.

    I have tried everything I can possibly think of and I can not for the life of me get this thing to print anything other then the preloaded files.  I have tried 3 different versions of cura (including the one that came preloaded).  I have copied and pasted gcode from everything I can find.  Any model I load to the printer goes from 0% to finished in a matter of seconds, the printer makes a tiny movement (it is small and I cannot tell the direction) then is says print finished.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

    I am currently on Cura 4.4, windows 7 64 bit, with the Anet ET4 printer.

    Registered just to reply - think you need to change your settings from Marlin to Repetier. Seen a post with a similar issue on the Anet reddit:)

    I ended up re-formatting a fresh Micro SD, that finally fixed my issues.  I could read and write to the card just fine, so I never suspected it, on a whim I re-formatted and everything started working.

    I have not noticed that problem.  I have seen a few things online in regards to moving the filament spool down a bit, I would look at that first (before I start messing with feed rates)

    The latest version of Cura has a Anet ET4 Profile and it works extremely well. I've been running my ET4 almost permanently for the past 3 weeks and only one print failed due to a roll of very poor quality filament. The version is 4.6.0

    I'm new to 3-D printing and I have an Anet ET4 Pro and I need help getting the printer to print at the center of the build plate. I'm using Cura 14.7 for windows 10 64.  What can I do to correct this?
