Mac OS X Cura 5.1 printing to Ender 3 S1 Pro

Having trouble finding the Ender-3 S1 Pro printer on my Mac OS X Cura 5.1. It doesn't show up as an option. Is there a way to add that print driver to the Mac Cura 5.1 manually?

    Yes you can, but it's a pain and there are a lot of different files that need to get copied over.

    You are probably better off using the Ender 3 Pro definition and then making changes to whatever Cura settings are different for the S1.

    Looking at the S1 definition in 5.3.1 - the only difference I see is that the S1 is 270mm tall while the regular 3Pro is 250.

    You can install a regular 3 Pro and then go to "Settings/Printers/Manage Printers" and then "Machine Settings" and change the "Z(height)" setting to 270.

    You can rename any printer to whatever you like.

      • 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!

      • 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.
