Creality CP-01 Using Cura, noob having what could be easy problem to solve

Recommended Posts

Posted · Creality CP-01 Using Cura, noob having what could be easy problem to solve

Hello all

As the title suggests i am a noob to using Cura, I have being using Creality slicer 1.2.3 since i got my CP-01, but after having some issues was suggested to use Cura.


Great program so far i can see myself having a lot of fun playing around and having fun with it, but first i need to sort out my X,Y, and Z point, as the first job i tried out hit and slightly kind of maybe ground or slipped gears because the starting point seems to be somewhere about 5-6 inches to the left, so any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated

    Not all of us are familiar with the Creality CP-01 printer, so first check if you have assembled the printer the right way! If all is done correct, you start with setting up Cura for your printer...


    For asfar as I know the CP-01 is not in the list of printers that can be added to Cura, so you probably choose one of the other Creality printers to start with? Did you check the settings of this printer? Are they correct for the CP-01?


    Make photograph of you buildplate after printing and share that with us, so we can see what you problem is. A good help is to load the to print object and choose for "Save Project" and share that 3MF-file with us... we can load that in Cura and see what your settings are!
