Trouble setting Cura 4.6.1 and Ender 5

Posted · Trouble setting Cura 4.6.1 and Ender 5

Hi everyone,


I have some difficulties to configure Cura 4.6.1 to print correctly on an Ender 5.

As you can see in the image, when I use the Creality Silcer software I get a pretty fine print. I tried to copy and paste the setting from Creality Silcer to Cura but the result is disappointing with the top (body is OK).




I tried to change the temperature, shell and travel speed without any success. My Cura config is:




Does anybody have any idea on which parameters should be changed to correct this problem?


Thank you

    1) Flow 

    2) Acceleration / Jerk

    3) Print speed looks too hight for a ender 5 ... 80 mm/s is on my point of view on the upper limit

    Hi. I am a novice so not sure of this but is your line width the same as the nozzle width in which case it is asking for the maximum rate to be deposited.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
