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


Does anyone have a configuration for:

FoKoos 3D Printer Odin-5 F3


Please add it if you have one.

    I recently just got the FoKoos 3D printer Odin-5 F3 as my first 3d printer. Im running into the same problem as Cura has no preset printer configuration for this printer. Ive been looking and have yet to find a solution to this problem. if you have any advice or a solution please let me know!

    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.
