Creality Wifi Box-User Experience

Step 2 Set Up Wifi Box

You can find a detailed introduction in the Guide Book that shows all the steps we have to follow to get the box working. Here, I will demonstrate these steps from a user aspect and try to explain everything as much as I can. After all, some small things are easy to overlook.

I read the Guide Book and connect my Wifi Box to a power supply and a printer. (I use a CR-10S as a test machine)

As showed in the figure, the red cable is connected to a power adapter; the blue cable is connected to the printer. Note: a formatted TF card has to be inserted to the Wifi Box as a hard drive. CWB will not work without a TF card!

Step 3 Link to a Smart Device

  1. Download the Creality Cloud App. This App supports both IOS and Android systems. Simply search “Creality Cloud” at your App store on an iPhone, for instance, and you will find information like below:
The current version is V1.5.2. Please update at least to this version to get a good user experience.

2. Select the “Device” on the bottom menu to link a CWB

3. you can use a phone number or an email to sign up for an account. Also, you can go to https://model.creality.com/model for registration.

Once you create an account, you can add a CWB or a camera (in the future), download/share STL files, remote printer etc. We have a few steps left.

4. Now, we connect a CWB to our smartphone. Simply follow the instruction on the screen.

Next,

Please read these notes before click “Next Step“. Also, if you couldn’t link your CWB to your cellphone, check these notes.

  1. It does not really work very well…

    My main use point would be monitoring printing.

    a) in local network you can do “nothing”. Only look at and chang basic configuration. There is an option to see video stream, but it doesn’t work. Links to internal network of box. Even with a route added manually it doesn’t show video.

    b) in App there is not much you can do at all. I don’t want to slice in cloude etc, only want to slice on my computer and send it to printer and monitor the running print. Cannot do that at all. Only thing I can do is watch video, but it is very small, only 1/5 of screen is used. The App will not switch to landscape mode and the video does not fill the screen.

    It’s cheap, but it is not even worth 10$ in current state.

  2. I’ve had the CWB for two weeks or so. I have attempted 50+ times to get it to work, both with wifi and wired to the router. I get to the place where it asks for the password twice. I enter the password twice, hit done and wait. Nothing ever happens. I’ve let it sit 2+ hours, and nothing. If I touch the screen on my iPad the password request screen goes away, but it never connects. There is a properly formatted microSD in the slot. I have followed every step precisely (I’m a bit OCD when it comes to that sort of thing). Nothing works.
