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.

        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.
