Creality CR-6 SE 5/6

Recommended Posts

One week to go.

 

First, second and third stretch goals have been reached -

Add-ons have been... added on. ::):

 

These are spare parts, not upgrades -

The part that most often needs replacement is... also the cheapest - the MK Nozzles at $0.84. Definitely grabbing a few spares.

 

That final, $5M Stretch Goal... does not interest me at all - I want it in the basic black! :lol:

I'm curious if the stock extruder is metal or not. I need to read it closer. Also if the extruder for this one is the same as the Ender 3.

Do a search on youtube and you'll find some reviews about it. It doesn't seem to be a metal extruder but it is not the same as the Ender 3's.

 

Not sure what the driver upgrade is supposed to do for us but think the 32 bit motherboard is better.

The newer stepper drivers are virtually silent, especially compared to the stock ones, which squeal.

The stretch goal drivers won't really be any quieter than the initially included ones. They will be maybe slightly more precise. The main feature is they put out a lot less heat so overheating the board is less likely to happen. I think they might also have a few extra tweaking options that won't be relevant to most people. It's really similar to the 32bit upgrade in that it's nice to have in case you every do something where it matters, but most people will never notice the difference.

Oh, I just assumed they were still going to use the same drivers they've used in soooooo many other Creality boards, hence why my comment being the way it was.

The board they originally were coming with was the same or similar to the silent board that they've been selling as an upgrade for the current printers.

New update. CR-6 Max! Print Size 400×400×400mm! Can't find the price difference right now though. Tempting for the extra build size but not sure I need it.

Well the pledge for two CR-6 SEs is less than for one CR-6 SEs Max.

The way I understand it, once you start getting that big the weight/momentum of the build surface moving back and forth can start causing problems. Something like the Ender 5 Plus, though a bit smaller, is probably a better configuration for large prints.

Think I'm going to hold out for a resin printer at this point since my Anycubic is working fine, but I'd be all over this if I was just getting started.

Same.. although Creality messaged me privately and offered me $10 off and gave me instructions on how to pledge for the lower price if I wanted back in.. I'm just not sure I want to wade into FDM and Resin at the same time.. and I have access to both in the maker space i am a member of..

That makes the decision a lot easier. For a bit more I might have been tempted. For double no. I'm already spending more on this than I originally wanted for a 3d printer.

Yeah, I also had the idea that a bigger printer might be nice for terrain but it was an easy decision at that price.

At that size, a fat Delta printer is probably the best because there the bed doesn't move at all. 

 

Slicers used to have settings for print speed at different layer height, so that you could get it to print at lower speed when it gets to a specific altitude. That could be used to combat the inertia issues of large prints. I think that type of setting just disappeared as printers became more robust.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
