Creality CR-6 SE 5/6

Recommended Posts

This thing works pretty sweet. Printed the Evee Pokemon that came with it for a test model and looks good. Been printing Printable Scenery’s Elven Eyrie. Only failure was printing the door—should have put a raft on. I also printed a telescope from Loot that was supprted for a resin printer and it turned out pretty good. 

 

Now the problem.....is anyone else having problems with the slicer that came with it?  I had to disable my virus software to load it ( webroot).  Then it only opens about one out of ten times. I loaded the newest version Of Cura I could find and it didn’t have an option for the Creality 6SE.  

 

Any suggestions?

The slicer on the sd card doesn't work right, but there is a new version on creality's website that seems to work fine. Otherwise the facebook group has profiles for the updated Cura and Prusa.

 

 

My fun continues. I got hit with a US Customs bill for a not small amount due to the paperwork having the wrong value on it... Creality told me to pay it and they'll reimburse me, so I'm awaiting their reply to the receipt I forwarded. Sent it on Friday, so hopefully hear back tomorrow or Tuesday.

Thanks.  I will try the one from their website again.

Waiting, waiting, waiting. Not to upset though because I'm kind of busy with other things. Would be nice to finally get it.

It's been chugging for about twelve to eighteen hours a day.

 

Grump has a print that will take a full day and some change. A spooky tree. Being a gamer means being able to USE  the Halloween decorations.

I've not had a problem with the Creality Slicer downloaded from their website except for not being able to find a vase mode.  

 

On a different note: I think someone in the 3D printing forum here linked to a video on how to set this printer up and one thing that seems to make a difference is to level the printer after pre-heating it.

After several hours of messing with the software I ended up disabling the MS and Webroot software and downloading the older slicer from their website and it seemed to work fine. I kept having problems with the one called out for the 6 SE. Definately seems to be some type of security issue on my PC. 

 

I was seeing some stringing and increasing the retraction distance a couple mm seemed to fix it

 

I had a failed print today....but to be fair, I didn’t review the slice very closely before printing and it was from a different supplier than I normally used. It had some adhesion problems at the start. The default bed temp is cooler than what I use on the Anycubic, so that may have contributed as well.  So far really happy with it. I have a couple 48 hour prints I want to do, so need to get the parameters tweaked.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      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.
