RE: Creality Cloud - lets make it better together
I bought the Cloud box thinking it would act like Octoprint, was extremely disappointed.
Finally reconnected my old Octoprint instance (using Raspberry Pi), added the config for the CR6-SE and haven't looked back.
Creality Cloud box is now just collecting dust....shame really.
RE: Filament not feed from the hot end.
My printer arrived today, and after putting it all together I eager loaded the filament.
I too found that the filament was not feeding, and the manual feed option on the screen also appeared to not be doing anything.
I am pleased to announce that I now have it working.
What did I do ?
Well, I unscrewed the cover off of the base plate so I could push all of the connectors home - that didn't help.
Then, I took the extruder apart. This thing sprung off into several pieces
Whilst apart I could see the extruder motor assembly and it was actually moving - silent and slow
I reassembled the extruder assembly (there's a really useful video on YouTube for this) and voila, mu printer is now printing
Hope this helps you.
RE: How do I find out what my Customer Number is (so I'll know when my unit ships)
Do you have the Kickstart app on your phone?
If so, log in and :
- click on the 3 bars at the top left (Android)
- Select Profile
- select Creality CR-6 SE
- Click on "View Your Pledge"
Backer number is at the top under your name.
Backer ID: 1634 - apparently shipped Sep 9th
I've sent a request via the kickstarter app to try and find out where this printer is.
My backer ID is 1634 and the printer was reportedly shipped on September 9th, but I have had no contact since then from any delivery company, and am concerned when I might receive this printer.
I also raised concern that my shipment was listed under EUROPE, when in fact I am in the UK....does that make a difference?
Can you respond please as we will soon reach 2 months from shipping date with no delivery.
