Hello everyone,

A newer version of CR6 SE firmware has been released. there are many new features.

  1. Add nine languages (Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Arabic)· 
  2. Change Auto-leveling parameter storage location from SD card to mainboard storage.
  3. Fix G29 non-working issue during printing. 
  4. Optimize Z-axis compensation memory logic; reduce printing errors and improving the printing stability.
  5. Optimize [auto home XY] function when stop print.
  6. Add preheat temperature.
  7. Compatible with Octoprint temperature report.
  8. Support [pause & change filament] function.Support M600 and M25? Need tests.
  9. Optimize the display issue on pause.
  10. Optimize the readjustment PID function, make more even and stable heating performance.
  11. Add [30-second screen shutdown] function to reduce the power and light pollutions.

Note: 32GB or higher storage SD card may not be recognized by the 3D printer.

I believe from now on, we will have an update log for each new firmware. We are working on it.

New firmware may have unknown bugs. download and upload new firmware cautiously.

Looking forward, I think, to installing this. Just got the printer running again last week after MB replacement, reluctant to do anything but...

SO, installed Z-zip, downloaded the FW and unzipped it to a desktop folder. It contains3 files, the log, a V2.0.12 motherboard FW and what appears to be another Zip file, DWIN_Set, yet you can open the .bmp files, so not zipped now?

So procedure is to put the Motherboard FW , named xxx.bin on an empty SD card, put card in printer and power up?

What do I put on the SD card for the screen? the DWIN_Set, as-is and if so, again named yyy.bin?

Really don't want to screw this up

I think the firmware installation procedure should always be the same, but I too have problems as @jwblazek understanding if the files in the DWIN_SET directory should be on the SD card or if only the * .bin file should be present in the SD card. In every way the updated FW is in Chinese and the choice of language will disappear after restarting the printer.

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions. Adding an update log is a great improvement from Creality. you are welcome to leave your opinion about the new firmware here or at our forum. I'll gather all the info and deliver it to the firmware engineers. To make better firmware.

For basic questions like how to flash the firmware, you can find answers on other posts at our forum.

Followed every step in this video (

for flashing the FW and screen. The firmware flashed fine and was stuck in Chinese, as expected, and the fix is to brush the screen, but the screen does not accept the new DWIN_SET file on the SD. Any suggestions?

Current version is T5L1 DGUS V1.4 2019.04.18 and the new version in FW 2.0.1.2 looks like this T5LCFG_272480_╙▓╝■┼Σ╓├╬─╝■CFG. Is this right or is the file corrupt? 

Tried to brush the screen with both a 32bit and 8bit SD, both formatted in FAT32 and neither worked.

Oh Eli-liu, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us an option to turn off the 30 sec screen shutdown. I know you want to save the world with less power and less light pollution, but give US the users this choice.

What would be even better, is give us the ability to increase the timeout, say 1 min, 5 min, 30 min, 60 min or NEVER!

As a dedicated Creality user (Ender 3, Ender 3Pro, CR6-SE) i have NEVER experienced this setting before and it MOST annoying for me and from reading other forums and this one, countless others as well.

Another option please: Why have you forced the 'Z' Offset to increase/decrease by .5mm and not .1mm at each press of the up/down button??? My ideal 'Z' offset is .23mm, but you are forcing me to use either .20mm or .25mm!!! Both are wrong and are effecting my prints.

If you persist in these 2 silly settings on this CR6-SE printer, you will force me into getting the BigTreeTech motherboard, something i don't want to do on this printer as i want to keep it as close as i can to how you built it!

Please consider both request, as a Christmas present to me and 1000's of other users.

Stay Safe

Turns out the SD format needs to be 4k. Found the info in a FB conversation. Applied the settings, which should have been mentioned in the video, uploaded to the printer screen, and now all is right.

I successfully updated the Board with the 8GB SD-Card that was included with the printer. A 32 GB Card, which I tried first, didn't work.

Flashing the Screen-FW was successfull with a 4 GB Card. First try with a 16 GB Card didn't work.

@boogabaga I had the same problem, i tried with two diferent micro SD cards both FAT32 4096 bytes with no success. After an hour of fighting i tried with a old micro SD card again with FAT32 4096 bytes and... it worked.

It seems to be a incompatibility problem with the micro SD cards
