Machine profile for new Ender 3 V3 SE for Cura?

I would like to slice my models in Cura to print on my brand new Ender 3 V3 SE printer. How can I get a machine profile/settings (not slicer setting profiles) for it? I can’t set it up in Cura as the new printer doesn’t appear on the list there. It seems too different from previous Enders to choose one of those. I would think the start up g code alone would be very different, plus the print head settings/measurements etc. I’ve tried to save the profile that Creality’s slicer is using, but I can’t find a way to do it.

Also, I would love to start with the slicing profiles from Creality’s slicer too, but when I export them Cura doesn’t recognize the file type. Is there a way to convert them?

Thank you for any help you can provide.


It is possible to add the Ender-3 V3 SE model to the Cura slicing software itself, and there is also a version available that uses the Creality Print slicing software that has the Ender-3 V3 SE model already built in.

Creality Print(FDM Slicer)

Yes, I have the Creality slicer with the Ender3 V3 SE built in (it came with the machine) but I’d like to add that printer to Cura. You say it is possible, but how?

I’m having the same issue, I’ve tried exporting the Creality Printer software settings (which are plain text files) and CURA can’t import them at all.

The only option left is to go through each setting one by one any manually enter the values from Creality Printer.

Bit of a pain but doable.

You can take the Ender 3 S1 and it works very well for me. Below I give you the customized start and end gcode.

Start G-CODE

G28 O ; Home all untrusted axes

Thats all end is good!
