Cura, Printrbot Simple Metal and Pronterface setup


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura, Printrbot Simple Metal and Pronterface setup

Hi Everybody

I am a new member of Ultimaker Community and a beginner, using:
Printrbot Simple Metal 3d printer
Cura 4.4.1 slicing application
Pronterface as the printing host
I would like to start all over again with the correct settings so that my printer(simple metal), slicing application(cura) and printing host(pronterface) can communicate and work together.

What should my Printer and Extruder 1 settings be under Cura Settings / Printer / Manage Printer / Machine Settings? (attached).
Especially the correct g code for start and end (attached).

What should my Pronterface settings be under Pronterface / Settings / Options / Printer settings? (attached).
What should my Pronterface settings be under Pronterface / Settings / Options / External commands? (attached).
How can I remove Slic3r on pronterface and replace it with Cura as the default slicer?

Appreciate Your help!
