Adding Sunlu S8 to cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adding Sunlu S8 to cura

I have a Sunlu S8. I have downloaded the file curaprofileforS8.curaprofile, which Sunlu says is the configuration file for Cura. How do I get Cura to load it? I have put it in several folders, but Cura still does not list it as a printer when I try to select printers.

    Perhaps you should ask Sunlu for an answer? They are giving you (and Cura) incomplete information, by only giving you a .curaprofile. All I can give you as an answer is that they want you to add a "Custom FFF Printer", enter the right dimensions, and then in the Profiles pane of the preferences import the .curaprofile (with the "Import" button). Where to get the dimensions for the Custom FFF Printer, only Sunlu knows.

    I bought my Sunlu T3 as part of a promo where I needed to contact them directly. Super helpful people TBH, but below is what their recommendation for a slicer profile.

     

    "For the slicer profile, this is what a friend tell me : What has always worked for me: I just set up new printers with a generic "Creality Ender 3" profile. I check to make sure the bed size is the same (example 220x220x250) and that is fine 99% of the time."

    I just got my sunlu S8 printer for the ultimaker cura. I added my printer as the Creality CR-10 profile and then adjusted the printer settings to match my printer X (310mm) Y (310mm) Z (400mm).

      • 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.
