What parameters do you need to generate a new printer configuration in Cura?


Does anyone have a configuration for:

Please add it if you have one.

    It's about the same build size as an Ender 3 or 3 Pro.  Install one of those and change the name to whatever you want.

    First and foremost, make sure you know the firmware flavor.  I would guess Marlin but that's just a guess.

    After installing and naming the printer:

    Click on the printer name in Cura and select Manage Printers then select Machine Settings.  The Ender definitions have a build size of 220 x 220 so enter your 230 x 230 in the correct boxes.  Double check the Gcode flavor as it must match your machine.

    That should be enough to get you going.

      • 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
