    How to make a custom Cura profile...

    So I have a printer that is not supported by Cura, but I got spoiled with it on my first printer, and would like to use the same software between the 2.Printer #1 being a Voxelab Aquila and I simply use the Ender 3 profile, all is happy as a clam.Printer #2 is a Voxelab Aquila X3 Max, Not sure about the innards, but the hot end, extruder, stepper motors etc... look to be more or less identical to the Aquila, but this one is BIGGER, and has auto levelling, among other variations.Unfortunately Utilimaker doesn't package any sort of Voxelab printer profiles in Cura, let alone the X3 Max....So I am wondering, I am sure a profile is something that CAN be created, but how?I would of course be more than willing to export and share my Aquila X3 Max profile to the community if there is any call for it beyond just me.

    Took a quick look using google
    found this hope it helps


    The code looks almost exactly like startup code on my Hictop 3DP11/12's.
    My Hictop which is almost exactly the same as an Ender 3 with auto leveling works great with similar code.

    My Startup G-code.
    ;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g
    ;Filament cost: {filament_cost}
    ;M190 S{print_bed_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line
    ;M109 S{print_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line
    G21 ;metric values
    G90 ;absolute positioning
    M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode
    ;M106 S127 ;set Fan half speed
    M107 ;start with the fan off
    G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops
    G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops
    G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm
    ;Put printing message on LCD screen
    ;M117 My Print...
    G28 X0 Y0
    G1 E4.0 ;prime extruder
    G92 E0 ;reset extruder length
    M420 S1 ; Bed Leveling On
    M106 P1 S128 ; P1 = 2nd Fan
    M220 S32.000000
    ;M420 V1 ; Print the leveling grid.

    My End G-Code

    M104 S0 ;extruder heater off
    M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)
    G91 ;relative mode
    G1 Z+0.5 E-2 F{travel_speed} ;raise Z above print
    G90 ;absolute mode
    G1 X0 Y270 ;move extruder to rear left Model to front.
    M84 ;steppers off
    G90 ;absolute positioning
