When are you going to support Ender 3 S1? Is there a different printer that I should choose as a default that will slice the same with proper settings?  I am very new, brand new.  Not good with manual settings yet.

    All the Ender 3's are very similar.  The differences between say a regular Ender 3 and a 3 Max is just the build volume size.

    You have two choices for stock definitions.  The Ender 3 definition has reserved areas for the glass clips.  They make the build surface smaller.  The Ender 3 Pro definition is identical to the regular Ender 3 but does not have the reserved areas.  The Ender 3 Pro is the usual choice because without the "reserved" / "disallowed" areas you get a bigger Printable Area.  Either way when you install a printer - on the right side of the window you get to pick a name.  After it's installed you should go to the Manage Printers and then Machine Settings and double check the build volume numbers (Width, Depth, and Height) to make sure they are correct for your printer.  Creality usually puts a 7.5mm safety margin around the build surface so don't be surprised if your build area is 220 x 220 instead of the advertised 235 x 235.

     

    The definition files come from either someone in the community, or from the manufacturer.  There might be an S1 definition waiting to be included with Cura 5.1 but if the S1 is similar enough to the 3 or 3Pro then maybe Creality didn't bother to submit one.

    Creality must be thinking all their printers are the same then...

    (I don't think Creality submitted any of the printers in the list)

    No they prefer use the source code of the other, change the name and the logo to produce their "own" slicer. Chinese Opensource understanding.
