I am looking for the same thing for cura 5.1.0 I just got the neptune 3, and I am stuck with having to run the elegoo version of cura which is 4.8, it aos frustrating because 5.1.0 doesn’t have a profile for it, and 5.1.0 won’t allow importing profile in from the version of cura I am running now.

I'd like to get a profile for the Elegoo Neptune 3 on Cura 5.1.1.  I wish they'd just have it as an option for one of the presets.  Is Elegoo resistant to allowing that for some reason?

Hi guys, I also have a neptune 3 and would love to see an official profile on Cura Ultimaker, But  "transfered"

the settings from elegoo  cura to ultimaker cura. You just have to create a custom FDM printer(or by cura custom FFF).I added photos showing how to set it up step by step. The  start G-Code is:


G28 ;home

G92 E0 ;Reset Extruder

G1 Z4.0 F3000 ;Move Z Axis up

G92 E0 ;Reset Extruder

G1 X1.1 Y20 Z0.28 F5000.0 ;Move to start position

G1 X1.1 Y80.0 Z0.28 F1500.0 E10 ;Draw the first line

G1 X1.4 Y80.0 Z0.28 F5000.0 ;Move to side a little

G1 X1.4 Y20 Z0.28 F1500.0 E20 ;Draw the second line

G92 E0 ;Reset Extruder

G1 Z2.0 F3000 ;Move Z Axis up


The end g-code is:


G91 ;Relative positionning

G1 E-2 F2700 ;Retract a bit

G1 E-2 Z0.2 F1600 ;Retract and raise Z

G1 X5 Y5 F3000 ;Wipe out

G1 Z10 ;Raise Z more

G90 ;Absolute positionning

G1 X0 Y{machine_depth} ;Present print

M106 S0 ;Turn-off fan

M104 S0 ;Turn-off hotend

M140 S0 ;Turn-off bed

M84 X Y E ;Disable all steppers but Z


These settings are taken from elegoo cura and have been tested by me.

Hey all,

Just dropping in to say that I appreciate the cooperative spirit here. 💕

Since Cura is open source, you or anyone else is more than welcome to create a pull request for the printer to Cura. 
You can find instructions to do this here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura

If you need any help with this, please reach out!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
