Nozzle Size Definition


Recommended Posts

Posted · Nozzle Size Definition

Okay, so I'm still having fun with my new Creality CR-6 SE. Machine is fine, software is a mess. My Ender 3 Pro has a lovely drop down list of nozzle sizes. On the CR-6, that list is empty. I am assuming that somewhere in the 20 or so definition files, there is an incorrect reference to a nozzle definition file.

 

Where does Cura pull the nozzle size list from?

    It looks like, for whatever reason, the CR-6 definition file isn't pulling in the info from the Creality Base definition file? I can't figure out why not, though. I'm using the definition files for CR-10 as a comparison and everything in the CR-6 file seems formatted exactly the same as the CR-10 file. 

     

    I'm confused as hell at this point.

    ... what version of Cura? In 4.7 there is no default CR-6 printer, so you probably have chosen on of the existing printers and named is CR-6, or am I wrong?

    Hi tr0g,

     

    I've been looking at the firmware for the Creality CR-6 SE, I've found that there is a few versions using same firmware:

    (The below statement if from the read me file together with the firmware.)

    -----

    32-bit Mainboard Firmware Flash Torial
    (Applicable models:Ender-3 Pro/ Ender-3 V2 Ender-5/ Ender-5 Pro/ Ender-6/ CR-6 SE)

    Tutorial:
    Prepare an SD card, format the SD card, copy the firmware to the SD card,
    then insert the SD card into the motherboard, it will automatically flash after booting,
    wait until it finishes flashing, delete the firmware in the SD card.

    ----

    Checked Ender-3 Pro and Ender-5 Pro and the only difference is the bed size, so if you select one of them and activate the printer in Cura, you will be able to adjust the bed size to:  X=235, Y=235 and Z=250 (unchanged). In here there is also a tab for the nozzle setting.

    After the adjustment you just rename to Creality CR-6 SE.

     

    (Edit: Used Cura Version 4.7.1)

     

    Hope this help.

     

    Thanks

     Mari,

     

    I copied the CR-6 definition file supplied by Creality for their slicer, which is just the old 4.2 Cura running a custom skin. 4.7 takes the definition file but then everything goes wonky.

    That's what I'm trying right now. I've sliced one model and it's currently printing, so if it works out well this may be the solution.

    That is what IT-specialists call "PEBKAC"  - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair...  😉

     

    Why copying files when creating a new printer is easy in Cura? There is not much difference between CR-3, CR-5 and CR-6 like @Torgeir already mentioned.
