    Cura only supports Ultimaker printers. The other profiles are ones contributed by the community and Ultimaker includes some in the Cura distribution. More printer definitions are available on the Cura GitHub site (but not one for the MP10s). Malyan makes the MP10s for Monoprice.

    Keep in mind that DRVAX reviewed the larger MP10, not the smaller MP10mini. He also said that he could not get good prints with jerk control on. I found I have to have it on. /shrug

    Cheers

    This printer is going back to amazon for a refund. dr vax says it cannot print reliably faster than 50mm/sec – my mp select minis can print at 50mm/sec! It is unsupported in Cura. I can buy a CR10 mini for less money.

The link to the extruder that DRVAX used was dead so I used this one: Redrex Upgraded Aluminum Extruder

    Thanks for the link to the Redrex Upgraded Aluminum Bowden Extruder

    this is where I would definitely recommend DrVAX videos. I believe he's done more than 1 on creating custom Cura profiles. What I basically do is use the Add Printer dialogue to set up the printbed size & give the profile a name. I leave the rest of the settings at the defaults to start. Then, I start tuning the printer & diagnosing test prints. After a day or 2 I normally have a reasonable profile.

    I've been trying to setup a custom profile based on the CR10 mini & dr vax video, but CURA (Mac) will not let me edit printhead x min & y min settings. It keeps putting x min =-20 & y min = -10.

    Well said... Can you help me? That's why I'm asking.

    I can buy a CR10 Mini for less than the MP10 Mini. Am I missing something?

    Alan, Thanks! That is good information. I guess I won't hold my breath waiting for Monoprice.

    YES! My initial setup was complicated by z-offset! I had to manually raise the bed to get the PLA to stick. Now my bed level correction is -0.80, but I can print some small items.

    I have had a bit of success using the CR10mini profile and changing whatever I could change to match the MP10 mini parameters, but I could not change the printhead settings. They would revert to CR10mini settings after my attempted edits.

    Any guidance on creating a custom printer starting with the CR10mini settings would be greatly appreciated. Can you send info on the all-metal extruder?

    Thanks, again!

    Welcome to the club! This is a nice machine with a few quirks (replace the extruder with an all-metal one, and while the auto bed leveling sensor is great when it works but you might have to set the z-offset to zero first--a software bug in some machines--or the hotend will not home near the plate).

    Ha, haha, hahahaha .... I asked the same thing over a year ago and got the same treatment. While there are some good people there, they seem to be limited to shipping replacements when it comes to support.

    I do not know how to export a printer configuration easily and cleanly with Cura (.3mf project files included a lot of other junk, it seems). You can either create a custom printer or start with the CR10mini settings (this is what I did). I recall the manual has the information you'll need for the printer physical settings. See this DRVAX video on the MP10 where he has slicer settings linked in the comments section. I started with those and have since tweaked them.

    Hopefully, I'll have some time this evening to export the default slicer settings that I use.

    Cheers

    P.S. -- There is also a Facebook group for this printer and its bigger brother, the MP10.

    I would pursue other avenues as well. How about asking in the Ultimaker forum?

    My son says I'm not a patient man, but in a case like this, I'm happy to wait for your free time.
