Support for the Creality Ender 3D Plus

I've just bought a Creality Ender 5 Plus printer.
When I select a machine profile it only has an option for the Creality Ender 5 (Not the Plus, which has a larger build bed of 350mm).
Will this profile work on the Plus or will it need to be modified?

Support told me that they haven't had a chance to test the Ender 5 Plus yet.

I've been messing with mine. Still working on oozing (the OEM Bowden tube measured right at 6 miles long)

I started with the S3D Ender 5 profile and have made the following changes so far:

Retraction Distance to 8mm
Retraction Speed to 3600mm/minute
-note: my extruder motor is getting pretty warm to the touch, your mileage may vary
Coasting Distance to .30mm
Wipe Distance to 3mm
-note: this test is printing currently, will know how it works tomorrow

I tried adding a G29 to the starting script for the BL Touch but that hosed everything. I am currently running the default S3D Ender 5 starting script and the machine runs the full bed probing routine after homing anyway ? :roll: ?

Let us know how the print turned out with the settings listed. I am in the process of trying to dial in my Ender 5 Plus.

Here is where I am currently. Stringing is pretty much taken care of but still need to smooth out start and stop blobs. Benchy pics at https://imgur.com/a/eaHDNK8


Stock Simplify3D Creality Ender 5 profile with the following changes:

Build Volume
Retraction Distance to 8mm
Retraction Speed to 3600mm/minute
Coasting Distance to .30mm
Wipe Distance to 3mm
Perform retraction during wipe movement enabled

My next print will have a coasting distance of .50 and an extra restart distance of -.20. Let me know what you learn on your end.

I changed the print dimensions to 350.350.400 in Simplify3D and it printed the monkey cup just fine although I had to manually insert the nozzle temperature (why?)

Please post your factory file so we can take a look!

Any updates on this? The Ender 5 plus is listed as supported, but there is no profile listed in the wizard.
