CR-6 SE comes with a medium build volume of 235 x 235 x 250 mm, which is enough for many types of projects. Though visually the machine doesn’t stand out that much, it has a few peculiar features that make it unique.

New Bed Leveling Technology

One of the key new functions implemented into this machine is a completely automatic bed leveling through 16 points on the printing bed. Though, contrary to machines with BLTouch or similar sensor, CR-6 SE uses the nozzle itself to measure the distance from the plate. Z-axis, at the same time, will then compensate for the distance during the printing process. As a result, the printing bed on this model has no screws for leveling at all.


CR-6 SE uses quiet drivers on Creality’s own mainboard. These drivers are non-removable, though. The printer runs from a 24V 350 W power supply, which is, along with cables and mainboard is located accurately in the bottom module of the printer. It is worth mentioning that the wire management in this model seems nice.

Frame design

CR-6 SE is built from aluminum profiles. It is designed as several modules, which come assembled and require a user to put in just a few screws. The printer features a handle on the top, as we assume, so you can carry it around. Though going for a walk with a 3D printer isn’t a common thing, CR-6 SE is lightweight, so you can try that.

Due to the low weight of the machine, surely, a question about the rigidity of the frame comes up. The printing examples from this model seem to be of fine quality. Some echoing appears but doesn’t become too severe.

Printing Bed

CR-6 SE is equipped with a carborundum glass printing plate, also known as an attempt to clone Anycubic’s Ultrabase. Though recent models of Creality’s glass plate seem to improve, there are still some issues with removing the parts after printing. Additionally, the heated bed doesn’t come with thermal insulation, meaning that some of the temperature (and power, respectively) is lost, and the healing time would be a bit more.

Other details

Overall, the machine looks nice and includes a few more pleasant touches like a built-in toolbox, filament holder, dull LED light on the printing head, belt knob tensioners for all the belts. The main concern, of course, is for the auto-leveling. With the absence of any printing bed screws, a malfunction will make it impossible to use the machine. Additionally, the usage of the Z-axis to compensate for the uneven table may influence the accuracy of right angles at larger objects.

For a first printer, I couldnt have asked for better. Easy to assemble, easy to use, and extremely accurate after it was set up and tuned. And Ive come to find out that in the case of various blemishes, they are usually the fault of the slicing software, or the filament itself.
A pretty good printer right out of the box. It pretty much can do everything itself with auto bed leveling and such. However I've swapped out the plastic extruder for a metal one and upgraded the firmware to the Community firmware that provides more control and adjustments.
It is slow, but pretty stable. Honestly get an ender 3 or a CR 10.
