@Makertech The workaround previously posted for the Makertech Cura does not work at all on Catalina, which means my printer is basically bricked at the moment. When can users expect to get an updated build of this? Alternatively, please can you share or export the Proforge settings so users can use the official Ultimaker Cura software and customise that instead.

The website at https://www.makertech3d.com/pages/proforge-2s says under the Mechanics section this printer has "An all metal Hotend based on the E3D V6, ...". How similar is it, if I wanted or needed to buy replacement parts? Would original E3D nozzles and silicone covers fit the heater block supplied with the Proforge?

Is it possible to get the data from the auto bed level and put it into the startup g-code, so I don't have to auto level at the start of every print? I'm wondering because I'm having a few issues when trying to print the first layer of any print, mostly around the filament oozing from the nozzle, even when I've retracted the filament slightly. The filament oozes a bit, then the auto level basically dabs the filament onto the board which squidges it back onto the nozzle. I'm having to clean this on the fly as the bed level is happening or else the first layer never prints well enough to continue with a print. I think this problem is worse with the new aluminium headed bed because the induction sensor doesn't pick it up from so far away, so my Z offset is only 0.2, which means I can only have 0.2mm of filament (currently PLA+) oozing before the problem starts. Tips on tacklign the oozing also appreciated, even if I can fix that I'd still like to avoid the wait for the auto level before every print if this can be saved. I've tried running M500 but I presume the Proforge control board doesn't have any EEPROM to save to?
