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.

      Story
      Battledrill is a fast-paced skirmish miniature game set in the Star Scrappers Universe, where you take control of a crew of adventurers called Scrappers. These brave humans, unyielding robots and mysterious aliens are exploring the uncharted space of the Distant Edge in search of the ultimate prize - Hexis crystals - a power source that will change the image of space travel forever. In hostile places on primeval planets, where a lasergun in your holster is the only law, will you be the one who prevails and claims all the glory?

      The Raygun Raptors Kickstarter has just launched. A 3D printable army of laser-gun wielding, space faring dinosaurs can be yours to command. Head over to Kickstarter to check them out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/treadheadrad/raygun-raptors-army-of-3d-printable-sci-fi-miniatures

      Or why not take a look at the introductory short film:

      Just saw this on my Facebook feed. Hot and Dangerous was a Kickstarter from Wargamer studio. It was for 32mm and larger pin up miniatures of ladies in historical uniforms and armor. Pin up is not truly accurate. Some had poses that were not fighting stances but most were not really “sexy” poses, and all were fully dressed and armored... one had a wardrobe malfunction but not too terribly so..,
       
      Anyway. My Facebook feed shows that a part 2 will be coming to Kickstarter soon. I was satisfied with the first one. 
       
      @Glitterwolf looks like there will be a conquistador in this one.

      Story
      3D File Design
      Miniatures come in as a single-part with a separate base, or sliced into parts, where it helps in printing or when there are different part options, such as different weapons. For best results, we recommend resin printers as they will capture all of the fine detail of the models, though filament (FDM) printers will produce great results also. Scenery STL files are designed for FDM printing and come sliced and keyed and are set up to fit within a print area of 220 x 220 mm.
      STL rewards from the main pledges are set for delivery via download links after the project ends, within the first 3 weeks. Stretch goals may take longer as we may need to complete the 3D sculpting before they are available, but they should be done within 4-6 weeks.
      Pre-Supported
      We are providing the models with a pre-supported option for those that want them. Pre-supported models are created with Chitubox.
      Sample Prints
      Below are castings made from resin prints from this project. 
      Pledge Levels
      There are three main pledge types. The Adventurer pledge get the Core Rewards, which include miniatures and scenery and stretch goals for individual character miniatures. Other stretch goals can be added for an additional amount as shown on their picture. The Champion pledge gets the Core Rewards and all of the stretch goals as well as the New Add-Ons. Finally, the Treasure Hoard includes all of the Core Rewards, stretch goals and the New Add-Ons as well as Add-Ons from previous projects (Multiple GB of files). There are also special early-bird pledges for the Champion and Treasure Hoard at a reduced price. Each pledge level gets its STL Rewards as well as PDF rulebook files for DeepWars and ShadowSea and the Stygian Depths.
      If you want just to collaborate or have access to the Add-Ons you may consider the Basic level at just $1. These backers get the Rulebook  PDFs, so it is a great way to get playing.
      Any pledge level can be modified with the addition of Add-Ons, shown  at the bottom of the page. Simply increase your pledge amount for the  add-on you want.
        Stretch Goals
      If we are funded past the initial goal, we will unlock Stretch Goals. Some stretch goals may be available for an additional cost for the Adventurer pledge but are all free to Champion and Treasure Hoard backers.
