Ender-6 Corexy 3D printer
Elegant Appearance：Ender-6 with a new look integrated all-metal chamber body matched with a transparent acrylic open door and blue corner.
Ultra Silent Printing: Ender-6 is custom-built with an ultra-silent Germany-imported TMC motion controller, enabling the printing process won't make any noise. TMC-2208 motherboard always ensures smooth movement in silence.
Large Printing Size: (250*250*400mm) can meet more of your printing requirement. Everything that you can imagine and the machine can hold.
Stable Core -XY Structure: Ender-6 is easier to make the printing more stable and more precise with core-XY mechanical structure and quality print nozzle.
3X Printing Speed: Ender-6 works quite well to achieve print speed up to 150mm/s, delivering the results faster.

Ender 6 Assembly and Operation
Really love this printer. It's great but needs a direct drive to print ABS better. For PLA, this is very nice, very fast, and very precise. I want to order more of this printer it's so good.
Amazing machine although I had to implement FOUR homemade upgrades covering some unexpected lacks. Additionally, after some print tests, I've tuned some gcode parameters in the slicer trying to get the best in quality and speed.
1.- there is not an external usb interface out of the box for connectivity and remote management but if you open the bottom cover you can connect a microusb to the main board but be careful to remove the VCC PIN of your cable in order to avoid undesirable surprises.
2.- The structure doesn't include any light/lamp to monitor printing processes. I've taken advantage of the unused VCC output at the microusb mainboard connector (plus GND) to plug there power for a 5V black flat led lamp mounted at the top of the structure (it looks really nice, totally integrated). Wires looks invisible, going from the lamp to the bottom box through the aluminum structure (I had to design/print some small black clips fixing the cable inside the aluminum bars)
3.- Hot-end fan is too noisy so I've replaced it with one ultra silent Noctua plus one stepdown (a mini 24v to 12v converter) inside the bottom box.
4.- Filament spools rubs the transparent panel all the time so I've mounted a thin foam ring between them protecting the panel
Now it looks great but there is a fourth enhancement pending:
- A transparent curved top cover to preserve temperature inside will allow printing with other type of materials
(Creality crew, please consider it a suggestion)
- For PLA, set temp bed to 60-65º. With lower temp PLA doesn't stick well
- Increase hot-end temp when increase speed: 210 is good for 100% speed, 220º for 200% and 230º for 300%
- For high speed don't select complex fill patterns in order to avoid issues. Lines and zig-zag patterns work fine.
