Creality’s successful Kickstarter Campaign for an exciting new 3d printer!


From printing urgently needed medical equipment to cater to other specific needs through the use of 3D printing, this is a technology that has gained an unprecedented angle of social impact. That’s why we’re even more strongly committed to enabling the ease of use and affordability of this technology by developing the CR-6 SE 3D Printer and making it available to every creative mind out there.

Harnessing the power of 3D printing shouldn’t be as expensive and complicated as it has been. That’s why we created Creality’s CR-6 SE DIY 3D Printer, a simple and robust aluminum-built modular 3D printer that features an intelligent leveling-free system for superior accuracy and advanced 3D printing features, in an easy-to-use printer that is also affordable.

No complications. No special skills required. No confusion. Your CR-6 SE is ready to use out of the box. You can easily assemble it in only 5 minutes and then all you need to do is plug it in and switch it on. The CR-6 SE 3D Printer starts working and delivering amazing results—whether you’re a pro or a newbie—in almost no time!

For the most part, accurate 3D printing is the result of a leveled bed. That’s usually a challenging goal, though, because most 3D printers will present nozzle clogging, poor adhesion, and generally unleveled-related issues that compromise the quality of prints. The CR-6 SE offers precisely the opposite. Featuring an innovative true Leveling-Free Technology, this is a 3D Printer that lets you always rely on highly accurate results.

Never see your creativity and productivity affected by nozzle-related replacement issues. The CR-6 SE is designed with a modular nozzle that means you can customize it. From the heat block to the nozzle tip, among other parts, this is a Modular 3D Printer that’s easy to keep!

Better heat dissipation with unique caved heat sink

With its compact and reliable extruder, you know that a smoother extrusion and an easier filament feed will ultimately generate faster, quieter and smoother prints. Yes, this is what perfect 3D printing is all about!

Photoelectric filament sensor and flexible fixator

3D printers shouldn’t be annoying in the noise they make, which is why we added a Silent Chipset to the CR-6 SE. Its latest Trinamic driver helps to ensure that voltage control, fast movement and printing in silence are a given. We know: you’ll thank us dearly for that!

You only want hot, excellent, superb printing results, right? Well, the CR-6 SE 3D Printer comes with a carborundum glass hotbed platform that is flatter than aluminum and which offers a stellar thermal performance that ensures quick heating up, strong adhesion and prints that are easy to remove.

The CR-6 SE 3D Printer looks as strong as it is. It also looks very stylish! This amazing work station has a beautiful design that compliments any desktop you use it on. Meanwhile, self-designed profiles and stepper motor cover prevent from filament scraps and dust. The CR-6 SE also comes with a well-arranged ribbon cable that ensures safety issues are never a concern.

Sounds like the perfect 3D printing equation, right? This unique printer is designed with a wider foundation and equipped with dual Z-axises matched with an adjustable timing belt that translates into reduced unwanted motion and improved refined results. So the stability of the machine and its performance is simply impressive.

Weighing only 9.2kg and with manageable dimensions (442*462*540mm), the CR-6 SE is a 3D Printer that you can carry. In fact, it features a convenient removable handle that makes it easy to carry whenever you need to.

User experience improved by optimized details like sealed aluminum profiles, foldable filament holder, tools storage box, belt tensioner. 

  • Toolbox
  • Foldable spool holder
  • Adjustable belt tensioner
  • Flexible hotbed fixator

These are the three magic words that basically mean that your CR-6 SE will keep your printing performance running smartly and smoothly. If the machine suddenly runs out of filament or if it simply breaks, the printer’s photoelectric filament sensor will instantly pick up that disruption and will stop the machine. As soon as the new filament feeds in, the CR-6 SE will resume its operation without making you lose your work.

Did the power suddenly or accidentally go off? No worries! The CR-6 SE 3D Printer will resume printing if the power supply is interrupted. That’s right—you can forget about starting over because print failure is no longer an issue!

The CR-6 SE 3D Printer features a 4.3in HD Color LCD Touch Screen that allows you to easily and intuitively operate the device. Available in English and Chinese, and with a simplified and smart interface, this Touch Screen ensures that this very special printer’s user experience always equates to smooth sailing!

No dust, Neat and Notable

CR-6 SE revamps in quites a distinguished look. From the bottom to the top, the flat aluminum profiles makes the machine stylish and prevent from dust.

All-around Safety

Hassel free printing with over current protection, over-load protection, and thermal runaway protection, always keep your mind at peace.

Whatever you think of creating and shaping, the CR-6 SE 3D Printer is the powerful, convenient and creative sidekick you need. This is the printer that literally lets you unleash and give shape to your creativity.

Print your product, create prototypes, or develop complex 3D printed tools and devices. There are as many industrial applications for what the CR-6 SE 3D Printer as you can think of!

The CR-6 SE 3D Printer allows you to create spectacularly detailed architecture models, whether you need to present a project to a client or simply want to unleash your architectural creativity.

We are impressed by this new printer and would love the opportunity to test and review one..

Lotmaxx launches new SC-10 Shark on Kickstarter

Imagine a desktop 3D printer that can print faster than average, featuring multiple functions such as auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing using simple add-ons. Plus build quality with premium materials, sleek and ergonomic design.

Now stop imagining. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a reality.  

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is our latest and first-ever crowdfunded desktop 3D printer and we chose to launch on Kickstarter for a reason. Kickstarter is always the base of unlimited creativity. Helping to bring the creative projects to life, Kickstarter would be the proven bridge between LOTMAXX and the 3D printing community by bringing us together.

We believe that 3D printing has unlimited potential, and we’re only just at the beginning of this emerging industry. 3D printing technology is penetrating widely and deeply across industrial, makers and consumer sectors. It’s by launching on Kickstarter and connecting LOTMAXX with backers, getting feedback and conducting discussion that we can make further progress on development of 3D printing.

We’re just getting started and your opinions matter to us. 

Establishing ourselves in 2018, LOTMAXX is a cutting-edge technology company specializing in 3D printing. Gathered with more than 100 professionals, experienced developers and engineers from 3D printing, tablet computer and machine manufacturing industries, we’ve harnessed the great capability of design, research and production of 3D printing.

We want to vitalize the industry with our innovation. By breaking further ground in 3D printing technology, we managed to bring LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK to Kickstarter. It’s printing faster, it’s more than the average desktop 3D printer.

It’s beyond your imagination.

Packing the Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) and S Move System (SMS), LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has effectively boosted the print speed and successfully saved up to 30% average print time*. 

*Source: stats from LOTMAXX lab.   

S Move System

LOTMAXX SC-10 stays cool while printing, thanks to the unique and signature design of its modular nozzles.  The Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) is a highly efficient  dissipation system with its uniquely developed four-fan design. This cools the nozzle from all angles, increasing the efficiency of heat dissipation by 42%*(measured in LOTMAXX lab) without compromising sprinting quality and print speed. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has three speed modes available: normal, middle, and fast speed, to match your preference and need. Combining the high-speed motor, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a powerhouse that guarantees unparalleled speed as well as the stability.     

The four-fan structure
Printing faster

Auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing, your call. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is the whole package. No need to recode and no further adjustment is required, plug and play, it’s just that easy!  

There are 2 colors of SC-10 Shark(Deep Purple/Space Gray)

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK comes with optional automatic bed leveling feature. The ultra-precise technology allows for 0.1mm accuracy. While the unleveled bed might cause nozzle clogging, scratch marks and poor adhesion, the auto leveling is one of the most important benefits that LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK can offer to the quality of your prints. Just tap the touch screen to activate the auto leveling interface, the inductive sensor will probe the heated bed. It precisely measures the print surface’s tilt, freeing you from the time-consuming and tricky manual process. Regardless of whether you are a newcomer or a skilled maker, you can enjoy a hassle-free auto leveling with SHARK!

Note: LOTMAXX procures 3D touch & BL touch from suppliers.

Auto-leveling
The 3D Touch

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK supports an optional 1.6 W laser engraving and allows you to engrave with a wide variety of materials like wood, plastic, leather, PVC, paper and resin. The interchangeable module is extremely easy to apply on. Plug and engrave, simply attach the laser engraver module next to the printhead and you’re ready to witness creativity turning into reality.  

Ever so often, it’s color making the artwork unique and special. While most of the 3D printers come with just one nozzle, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK offers optional dual color print head tier. Besides the basic option, you may choose a different package that comes with two extruders and one nozzle. Expand the possibility and upgrade your artwork, why not?

We have one of their original SC-10 printers and are very impressed with it. We are backers of the new SC-10 Shark on kickstarter. We are very eager to receive the new printer and put it through its’ paces.
