UPS lied to us - it will not be arriving on Wednesday. ::(:

 

It's already in our grubby, grabby little hands! ::D:

 

And Brigid seems to have already decided which print is hers - it's one we already own. ::P:

Apparently named Rarr!

 

Not a big surprise - she menaces her Weebles with the WizKids umber hulk already. (I'm already thinking about ways to make her a costume....)

I got mine set up tonight.  I'm running it through a test print using one of the files that came with it.  (First, make sure it prints the stock files.  Then try printing other files.)  This is my second attempt.  The first failed because I failed to reengage the extruder so it wasn't feeding filament.  (Oops.)

 

Also, since it wasn't obvious to me, the standard set of tools used in setup, etc., are stored in a tool drawer in the base.

Wait... did you print that on the CR-6?! If that is from a FDM printer and not resin, then consider my mind thoroughly blown.

 

I was thinking of asking the same thing. Waiting patiently for and answer @TheAuldGrump. Still waiting for them to get to the Canadian with addons part of the shipping cycle. Still need to figure out where I'll set it up too. The simplest location for me is right near our RO filter system and I don't really want it anywhere near water. Should be able to figure out something once I have it and can see how much space it really takes up. I'm not so good at judging using just measurements, especially as it's nice to have extra space around things.

It's hard to tell for certain from the picture, but with the size of an umber hulk I think those results shouldn't be a problem on FDM. There is a lot of detail to be found or lost in orienting .08mm layers at the right angle.

Nope, swiped the image from Artisan Guild, who make the mini. ::):

 

Eventually the Creality will be joined by another printer, possibly a Saturn, which I think can create prints like that.

Our test Benchy came out decently, some stringing and a bit of droop to her cabin roof - but pretty good.

 

A far cry from what I was expecting. (I was expecting our first print to be an abject failure - it's tradition!)

 

The Auld Grump - Benchy - the jolly 3D torture test!

I didn't have that problem...

 

Because, before pledging for this, I watched the 3D printing nerd unboxing where he couldn't find the tool drawer.  ::P:

Watch the unboxing videos on YouTube - you are not alone.

 

At least three reviewers did not know about that drawer.
