@strips They do look good. What did you need to change?
What filament is it?
I do not use Creality's build platforms. I have instead 2 Borosilicate glass beds and 3D Lac as I had problems getting first layers to stick properly.
Well done otherwise.
In cura I went with pretty much the default that came with the ender3 profile. But for the fun of it I made a Benchy with Simplify3D but trying to duplicate the settings in the Ender 3 profile for Cura. It came out a bit better than the Cura version. I think maybe the printer is lacking on print cooling and that might be why the temp-tower looks so bad.
I did a comparison on the temp tower gcode and the benchy sliced on S3D. There are some changes here but nothing that stands out.
Here I have the Benchies for comparison. The print settings are as similar as I could make them. I think S3D came out on top but Cura has much better finish on the boat deck. They both are printed with 100% extrusion so there is about 8% over extrusion here. Some of the door/window overhangs look bad but thats the worst.
Cura on the left and S3D on the right on all the pics.
The best way to maximize the mesh grid is to take your M208 as the bed surface, then add/subtract your probe offsets. That will give you the area for M577 that the probe can reach. Adjust it slightly so that you can get a whole number of points within it. Tip, if you send an M577 with a unreasonably high number of probing points it will suggest the actual maximum to you.
The VIN voltage is measured every 1ms. The firmware turns off the heaters, saves the resume information and starts the auto pause process as soon as VIN is measured to be below the threshold configured using M671.
On my delta, when I turn off the power there is enough left in the PSU capacitors to raise the head a couple of mm, but not to move it to the usual park position. But this printer uses an AC mains bed heater, so the 24V PSU is only rated at 100W and won't store much energy.
There is a 12V regulator on the DueX5 but not on the Duet. You can wire the fans as you say; or if all your fans are 12V, you can remove the fan voltage select jumper on the Duet and feed +12V to the centre pin of the jumper block instead.
