Cura 5.7.2 Profile for K1 Max

Posted · Cura 5.7.2 Profile for K1 Max

I've been using Cura for my 3D prints for about a year and a half now, and I recently upgraded from my Ender 3 to a K1 Max. When I went to add a profile for my K1 Max, I discovered there wasn't one available. Does anyone know if there are plans to add the K1 Max as a profile? Also, does anyone know what settings I could adjust to create my own K1 Max profile?

    UltiMaker is not responsible for adding printer profiles for third party printers to Cura. These must be contributed by either the manufacturer or the community.


    In this case... as is the case with pretty much every Creality printer, they list that Cura is supported but they don't even submit printer profiles themselves (they come from the community, and are pretty much never available when the printer launches).


    I'm not familiar with Creality's whole product lineup but if there is a printer similar to yours (like a slightly older model) the profile for that should work, but it might not give you ideal results. If there's a regular K1 or something, you could probably select that and just change the build volume.

    Hey @Toddk60,


    Welcome to the UltiMaker Community 🎉

    I happen to know that this printer has already printer definitions contributed here

    And since it's merged. it will be available with the upcoming Cura 5.8 release.


    A little birdy told me that we probably only have to wait a week before the Beta is released. 🤞
