Hello Creality Community,
I recently acquired a Creality K1 Max printer and have been trying to use the Creality Print slicing program provided by Creality. I downloaded the latest version, Creality_Print-v18.104.22.16827-x86_64-Release.AppImage, released on September 27, 2023. However, I’ve encountered an issue while using it on my Linux Ubuntu 22.04 system.
Whenever I click on the “Slice” button, the screen just flashes, and the slicing process doesn’t start. It’s worth noting that there’s no error message displayed in the console where I run the AppImage. Interestingly, the same program works flawlessly on a Windows machine, confirming that the procedure I follow isn’t the issue. This seems to be a bug specific to the Linux Ubuntu 22.04 version.
Has anyone else faced a similar issue? Is there any chance Creality will address this bug in the near future?
I’ve tried using Ultimaker Cura as an alternative, but I couldn’t find a reliable profile for the K1 Max. Furthermore, the profiles I did come across don’t seem optimized for the K1 Max’s artificial intelligence features for the first layer of the laser lidar. It seems I might have to resort to using a Windows system for my printing needs, which is inconvenient as I don’t have Windows installed on my office computer. Currently, the only Windows machine I have access to is my daughter’s laptop.
Any guidance, workarounds, or updates from the Creality team would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
