I got the kickstarter and ever since I got it I have had nothing but problem the bed will not level at all. The printer head it so heavy when print it go to 2mm to 1mm and some time the print head pushes so hard it scratch the bed. And the switch on the pri t just went out what ended up burning up the RTH1 resistor. I email the company so many times and haven't got any support or replacement parts I think I got a lemon. But I ended up buying a new switch and power supply. I found out if I use a index card to help level the bed.
I've had this printer for about a week now and I love it! After taking so long to get my Tornado to print just good, having the 6 SE print an almost perfect Benchy right out of the box is amazing! The self leveling is very quick and preheating takes hardly anytime as well. I actually did have a power interrupt on my second print and it did as advertised to start right where you left off, but I ended up stopping the print due to excessive build up where the nozzle rested at. It wasn't perfect but would be awesome for a multi-hour/day print. I have also not needed to add any adhesive to the build surface although I do clean it with 50/50 alcohol after a couple prints to make sure its clean. Don't forget about the tool drawer in the base, I did and was pleasantly surprised with the contents. Finally the 6 SE prints extremely quiet, besides some fan noise, sometimes I forget its printing not hearing the song of the axis motors! The touch screen is responsive and menu trees are minimal and easy to use. Definitely highly recommend this printer for anyone novice or experienced!
Just received this machine this week, the auto bed leveling and filament detector makes this one of the best 3D printers available, i have been telling all my friends to buy one and get into 3D printing
This is my first 3D printer, after doing a ton of research I decided to buy this one, and boy was I right to pick this model.
All the added features are worth the extra money.
Congratulations on making yet another great product.
Had issues with the Ender 3 ver 2. After having to return three of those, I decided to try the CR-6 SE. Bought it at a discount from some guy who got it from Creality's Kickstarter campaign for this printer. I ended up paying $300. Which is a steal! Putting it together was a breeze. After assembly I updated the firmware and then auto leveled the bed. On the Ender 3 ver 2, I had mastered manually leveling the bed, but this new machine took that chore away. I now only auto level every once in a while. With the Ender 3 ver 2, I had to check the level almost every other print. That's not the only big difference. What I also like is how quiet the CR-6 SE is compared to the Ender 3 ver 2. I was pleasantly surprised how quiet this thing is when printing at 100. Cable management is really good on this printer also. I also like that they made the glass bed easily detachable from the aluminium heated plate. I hated using those clips on the Ender 3 ver 2. Another big diff between the Ender 3 ver 2 & this printer is the sd card slot. The Ender 3 ver 2 uses a micro sd card. Not a big deal, but it's easier just leaving a sd card adapter in the slot on the CR-6 SE and just using a micro sd card. So you will never wear out the sd card reader or the locking mechanism that keeps the card inserted.
My only dislikes about this printer are the filament holder, the enclosed extruder & not being able to easily turn the extruder with a dial. You can use the feed & retract settings, but it's nowhere near as fast as I could do it by hand. Plus you can't see if you're lining up the filament inside the extruder to the bowden tube. I haven't had a lot of difficulty loading filament. So it's not a huge problem. On the filament holder arm, I opted to use a top mount and 3d printed a roller that attaches to the top of the filament runout sensor. Which feeds the filament in without putting and tension on the metal slot going into the sensor. Which over time will wear out the brass ring. It would have been awesome if Creality included the top mounted filament holder. So you'd have both options. They didn't really provide you anything to help feed filament into the runout sensor. Which is another reason why I opted to mount it up top. I did have trouble printing the models that came on the SD card. That's only cause they were in a folder & not in the main directory of the card.
Overall, I've been extremely satisfied & happy with the CR-6 SE. Any complaints I have are minor. What really matters is does it work, is it easy to use and does it print well. On all 3 the answer is yes.
