CR-6 SE SOURCE CODE and Tutorial Video update



  • @ncbob everything is working fine including being able to save everything on EEPROM.

    If anyone wants to compile it and is having trouble let me know and we can do a zoom meeting and I’ll help you troubleshoot it.



  • @S7EN Ok, now that I FINALLY got a working motherboard from Creality after 3 1/2 weeks my printer is running, and I found the reason to update the firmware to this version.

    In the stock firmware it comes with the EEPROM is not enabled so you have to do leveling, PID tuning etc every time you power the machine off and on or reset things.

    I'm uploading it and doing some testing, then I'll post that it's working for me or not.



  • Please post your source code on Github..... Where it belongs.



  • This is quite embarrassing, there's been a month and you haven't got the new firmware posted as a bin-file yet. What is taking so long? I'm a software developer and if I would be this lazy I'd be fired, and I live in a country where firing people is quite hard.

    Post the new firmware now and tell us what changes are included.



  • @GroovyDrifter there are quite a few dependencies needed to compile the creality version of the firmware that is not documented.



  • @ncbob Thank you, but I cannot change anything on precompiled code. Anyway to my surprise, I installed all the same in Windows 10 and then it worked ok. Not just that, I put the source in a drive that can be accessed from both OS's and after a successfull compilation on Windows it also compiled ok in MacOS. Looks like there is something that is not downloaded in the Mac side...



  • @igotfits I posted a link to the compiled bin below a few days ago, and it's still available for download.



  • @ncbob Hi! I did as you say but still failing to compile from source, I get errors in terminal:

    I removed everything from .pio too. Can you help me? I would like to be able to compile it by myself to change things.



  • @S7EN +1



  • Yeap, Can we get a proper compiled .bin. Seems like alot of us are having issues.



  • @admin No reply? Could you PLEASE upload a compiled ready to flash .bin File for the newer Firmware and for the Screen?



  • @Crazyheaven it's in the .rar file



  • @ncbob I applaud your initiative. I wish I had programming experience outside of VBA.



  • @ncbob Okay thank you, i do not flash newer firmware until it get's released for direct flash. The printer runs good with some litte bugs so i can wait.



  • @S7EN honestly I’m not sure what they changed, I do like that I can make my own changes if needed and see what they have done and how things are configured. I mostly did it to try and get my printer working, mine is one where the steppers won’t move.

    Now when I try to home it doesn’t halt anymore, but it still doesn’t work.



  • @ncbob Is it worth it? I mean, whats better?



  • Here's a link to the 1.0.3.6 firmware bin file:
    firmware.bin V1.0.3.6



  • @admin this tutorial is so vague... i formatted card, copied .bin file, inserted in printer, staqrted printer, and it stays on the creality boot screen.. nothing loads



  • Oh one other thing after you make those changes clean out the .pio directory in the root of the project before you do another build.



  • I was finally able to compile the 1.0.3.6. version of the firmware.
    These are the changes I made to platformio.ini file
    I added this line:
    board_build.core = maple
    to the [env:STM32F1_base] section

    I had to comment out this line:
    Adafruit_MAX31865=https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_MAX31865/archive/master.zip
    in the [common] section

    Going to get a small 8gb sd card and then try to flash it and see if it fixes anything.
