Cura and CR-10 SE printer profile

Posted (edited) · Cura and CR-10 SE printer profile

I'm not familiar with Creality's product lineup, but if other printers I've seen are anything to go by, the CR-10 SE is just a version of the CR-10 with a Sprite extruder installed as stock? If that's the case, you could probably get away with using the CR-10 profile, you'd just need to change the retraction settings (in the Travel section of the print settings). Here's the default for the profile for my Ender-3 V3 SE (as taken from the Cura Github, where hopefully the definition will be added in 5.5 instead of me having to find it manually):

The major difference is the retraction distance - a Bowden extruder has to pull a lot further back to retract. Just remember that if these settings work, save them to the default profile so you don't have to change them every time.

    The SE model doesn't look like any other CR10's.  It has a max speed of 600mm/s and 300C top temp, direct drive (no bowden tube.  There is a chance I might be able to install the Creality Print software that is said to have a CR10 SE profile and copy the important values to a new Cura profile.  Just don't want to re-invent something when it might already be available or coming soon from Cura direct.

    Not that I know the best way to search Github repos but I can't seem to find one (there are some for other printers which have come out since 5.4 was released... I'm using one... after I modified it because it got some of the specs wrong).

     

    If it's still similar enough to the existing CR-10 in things like build volume you can use an older profile, just change the retraction settings to account for the direct drive extruder and maybe change some of the other settings like speed, even if it won't work as fast as it can it'll still work. Although be careful with the speed, my Ender-3 V3 SE can go a bit too fast for its own good sometimes.

     

    Creality do tend to be pretty good at quickly releasing new versions of Creality Print with profiles for their new printers, but it's forked from an older version of Cura and the printer definitions aren't in the same format, so you couldn't just copy + paste the files. You could copy the values manually (looked into that for my E3V3SE before I saw there was a profile in the Cura Github repo) but that'd take a bit of effort, especially if you want to make sure you're not wasting effort overriding values from Cura's creality_base definition when you both don't need to and shouldn't override them.

    Maybe I can help. I made a slicer profile for the CR-10 SE in Orca slicer.

    Published it on Thingiverse, use the link below. Good luck

    I have a Creality CR-10 SE too and tried both Cura and Orca slicers.  I wasn't ever able to get Cura to connect to a Klipper printer but was in Orca and in Device I see my camera and can do any setting in Fluid as that's the port I connected to.  If you're more familar with Mainsail use port 4409 instead.  I used my IP address to connect to my CR-10 SE 192.168.4.60:4408 and hit test and walla it all works.  I can slice in Orca and send the print directly from Orca to my printer.  Not sure if this matters but I rooted the CR-10 SE  Here's a link to video for doing that:
