Posted · Creality CR-5 Pro in Cura?

Upon launching Cura, it's required that I choose a printer. Problem is that my printer, the Creality CR-5 Pro, is not on the list of printers...
What do I do? I'm assuming that it matters which printer I choose, but mine isn't available.

    Since my questions is near the same I will not start a new thread but expand on this one.  I just got the Creality Ender-6 and it also is not listed.  I tried to create my own "Ender-6" from the Ender-5, but being new to this it did not go well.

     

    Thanks in advance.

    You can always create your own profile with the custom printer or you ask your vendor if they can provide a working profile for Cura. The 3rd party profiles in Cura are created by the Vendors itself or by someone of the community.

    Or maybe better, choose an other Creality printer and just the change the values for your printer model.

    Simply choose one of the other Creality printers, for example Ender 3 Pro and rename it... after that you only have to change a few settings (buildplate volume)... after that you are ready to go!

    For CR-05 Pro:  X = 300, Y = 255 and Z = 380

    For Ender 6:  X = 250, Y = 250 and Z = 400

    That is exactly what I did with my Ender-6 but found there were other settings that were better selected with the Ender-6.  The printer came with a slicer that uses Cura (New Creality Slicer) for it's GUI.  Is there any way to export those settings from Creality Slicer and import into Cura slicer since they are the same GUI?

    ... there are 2 different things, machine settings and cura profiles... you create machine settings once for a printer, but the cura profiles you keep tweaking to get better prints.... Luckily there are some people who create Cura profiles and share them...

     

    The profiles I like the most are to be found on this website:  https://www.chepclub.com/cura-profiles.html

     

    Creality Slicer is and old version of Cura (and Cura changed a lot in the past year) so don't think you can export/import the profiles that easy...
