Cura Profile for Thinker S

Post by magixx » Mon Jan 11, 2021 1:08 pm

I recently got a Thinker S2.1 and from reading it's very similar to the Thinker SE.
However while setting it up I was a bit confused about which Cura starting gcode I should use since there were quite a few versions between the hardcopy manual, manual on the usb drive, updated Thinker SE manual, and various posts on this forum. (See below for various versions)

I guess my questions are:
1a. Is there any difference between the S and SE when setting up Cura/any other silcer?
1b. If so, what are the differences I should be aware of?
2. What printhead settings should I use? The S manual showed:

While the updated SE manual showed

3. Which starting Gcode would best suit the S?

Here were the various stating gcodes I found:

1. My hard copy manual:

G1 Y-3 F1000;Move Y axis
G1 X100 E6 F1000;lines

M117 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2. The manual that was on the MicroSD (2019/11/18):

M109 S210;Heating the nozzle
G1 Y-3 F1000;Move Y axis
G1 X100 E6 F1000;lines
G1 X150 E12 F1000;lines
3. The updated manual for the Thinker SE (2020/6/18)

Code: Select all

Hi
Here are the answers for you:
1. For the printer setting. There is no difference of the thinker s and thinker se
For the XMIN/YMIN then you don't need to set the same.
You can go to the nozzle offset setting. For the ER20, we set it to x10 and y-8.
Thinker s/se using the same hotend so you can copy this value

2. For the start gcode
The user manual supplies the basic start gcode.
If you want a better print result, you should go to Cura setting instead of the start gcode.
