Hi 

 

I could not find this printer on the printer's list Easythreed x7

Are there any manual ones?

 

Thanks

    The printer definition files are provided by the printer manufacturers and submitted to Ultimaker for inclusion in Cura.  Generally, the information in a definition file explains to Cura how big the printer is, what speeds it's capable of, what firmware it's running, how many extruders it has - those sorts of things.

    There are two things you can do in Cura.

    #1 is to install a "non-networked", "Custom", "FFF" printer.  It can be named whatever you choose.  After installing, go back into Manage Printers and Machine Settings and change the settings for build size and firmware flavor to match your printer.

    #2 is to find a printer similar to yours, install that definition, and then go into Manage Printers and Machine Settings and change the settings to match your machine.

     

    The Monoprice Select Mini V2 is similar to your printer.  It has a larger build surface and you would need to adjust that in Machine Settings.  There might be oddities in the start-up gcode as well.  In Cura 4.11 there was an error in that definition file (the Z-hop speed was wrong (should have been 1.5) and nothing would slice) but it appears to have been fixed in 4.12.

    Well, not always. Anyone can contribute printer definition files. I think that 80% or more of the profiles that we have were not contributed by the manufacturers
