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.

    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...

    Should be 300/225/380 for CR-5 Pro ?

    We all make mistakes now and then... 😉  You are right, it must be 300/225/380...

      • 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.
