Ender 3 Neo is not in list of printers in Cura 5.1.1 for macOS

Installing the Ender 3 Pro definition is fine.  The regular Ender 3 definition has disallowed areas for the bed clips.  Most people find that annoying.

The problem you will have right away is that the 3 Pro definition may not have the Auto-Level command in the StartUp Gcode.  That only takes a second to fix, but you need to know what the command is.  Generally, Creality uses G92.

This is part of the Ender 3 Pro startup gcode (even though it says Ender 3).

; Ender 3 Custom Start G-code
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G28 ; Home all axes
M104 S{material_standby_temperature} ; Start heating up the nozzle most of the way
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Start heating the bed, wait until target temperature reached
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; Finish heating the nozzle

 

Add the three lines that I've highlighted in bold text:

; Ender 3 Custom Start G-code
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G28 ; Home all axes
M104 S{material_standby_temperature} ; Start heating up the nozzle most of the way
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Start heating the bed, wait until target temperature reached

G29 ;Auto Bed Level

G1 F600 Z5 ;Move the nozzle up

G1 F6000 X0 Y0 ;Move to the left front corner
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; Finish heating the nozzle

 

So the machine will auto-home, the hot end will be hot but not enough to ooze filament during leveling, the bed will be allowed to get up to Initial Layer Bed Temperature, then the Auto Level will run, the print head will rise up a bit and then move to the corner so if there is any oozing it will happen away from the build area, and then the nozzle will heat up to Initial Layer Print Temperature.

You can find the StartUp Gcode by going to Settings / Printers / Manage Printers and then Machine Settings.
