Printer is not listed. Tronxy x5

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer is not listed. Tronxy x5

Good afternoon. So I bought a Tronxy x5 about 5 years ago. Just got around building it. Downloaded Cura and it has a lot of Tronxy printers but now mine. 

I’m stuck now on what to do. 

if anyone can help i would be greatly appreciative.

    Install one of the X5SA models and on the right side of the first dialog is a box where you can change the name of the printer.  The second dialog that comes up should be the Machine Settings.  Make sure that the X(width), Y(depth) and Z(height) match your printer.  Your actual "printable area" needs to be entered there and not just the physical size of the printer build surface.  On the right are the print head settings.  They describe the "crash" size of the print head when using the One at a Time option in Cura.

    The "gcode flavor" is the most important setting and it looks as if the TronXY printers use Marlin.
