Hi, when I try to set the size of the sticker in the new version of the program - it doesn't work. I can't set the correct X min and Y values in the printhead settings menu. I can only set negative numbers. How to solve the problem and set the numbers I want?

    The print head settings measure from the centerline of the nozzle so yes, MinX will be negative and MinY will be negative.  The gantry height is from the tip of the nozzle to the bottom of the X beam (on my 3 Pro it's 25mm).  Those settings only come into play when printing multiple pieces in "One at a Time" mode.

    Did you use the Ender 3 or 3Pro definition?  The 3 Pro doesn't have the disallowed areas for the glass clips otherwise they are identical.  Once you change the regular "X (width)" and "Y (depth)" from 220 x 220 to 300 x 300 I think you would be done.

    Here ya go.  An Ender 3 Max definition file and a "Platform" that goes with it.  I had this laying around.

    Unzip the file.

    Copy the "creality_ender3MAX.def.json" file to the "...\Ultimaker Cura x.x.x\resources\definitions" folder.

    Copy the "creality_ender3MAX.stl" file to the ...\resources\meshes" folder.

    It will show up the the "Install a Printer" dialog in Cura.  It will look like the image below.


    The downside to custom definition files is that updating Cura does not carry them over to the new version.  You would need to copy and paste them in BEFORE opening the new Cura version or you WILL get errors.  That's why I didn't post it before.


    An alternative is to ignore this whole post and just run with what you have.
