Estou com o mesmo problema do Tobias:

Estou com o problema de que a impressora não começa a imprimir. O indicador corre para 100% e diz que a impressão terminou.

As únicas coisas que imprimem são a demonstração de gato, porco e cachorro. Alguém por favor pode ajudar com a configuração do Cura

The ET4 Configuration on Cura for Windows doesnt work on Ultimaker Cura 4.5.

“Failed to import profile from G:/ET-4 Cura Ultimaker.curaprofile: Could not find a quality type super for the current configuration.”

Hi, please provide “Mattercontrol” with an ET5 profile (,ini or similar) file for their Mattercontrol V2 (free) software if possible. ET5 is great printer and when coupled with Mattercontrol V2 this is an excellent combination (IMHO).

Thanks and have a wonderful day!

I have the problem, That the Printer does not start to print. The Indicator runs to 100% and says print finished.

There are a lot of issieus with the pro printer..
The only things that print perfect are the demo cat, pig and dog.
Further is the firmware very crappy on the pro printer.
A lot of caching problems, you need tot reset the printer time after time.
Please give me the printer setting your using for your demo´s.
I spend a lot of time to get this printer working.
If it’s not getting better next week i’ll sent him back.

Ich habe einen ET4 Pro. Verwendet das den gleichen Code?
Auch die SD-Karte, die ich mit dem Drucker bekommen habe, ist beschädigt. Wie kann ich eine Kopie der Software erhalten?
Vielen Dank.

On the instructions under :
2.2 According to the pictures below, set each item of parameter.

Why are you showing E12 Parameters on the picture instead of Prusa Mendel i3
as you where giving instructions?
