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

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!

      • 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
