When are you going to support Ender 3 S1?

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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
