Been awhile since the holiday release came out! Its been a little bumpy considering the overhaul to the underlying screen platforms due to the changes following part shortages, but this release mainly intends to fix several of the larger bugs, and add support for the CR10 Smart. 7.4.4 was a bit rocky as we basically […]
Another Creality Touchscreen Update!
Weve got a Holiday update for you! Thanks to F1RST LAYER providing an Ender 7, we have gotten the new revision touchscreen in these up and working! As a byproduct, the Sermoon D1 is also up and going! While we do not have a Sermoon here, a few users have been working with us to […]
Creality Dwin Update again!
We have some new fun features for Creality touchscreen users! Creality sent over an Ender 6 to help with development – allowing further support for the Bondtech DDX. From the screen image being inverted to a newer STM32 mainboard layout, the Ender 6 presented a couple new challenges. We also found some timing issues […]
Happy to announce a new release with Tiny Machines and Bondtech including functional file browsing for the 10SPro touchscreens New stuff focused for the DDX with Slice Engineering hotends!
I know we’ve been quiet for a while and haven’t been as active as usual on social media since the start of the Covid pandemic. But, those who have been following our repositories may have noticed that, while development has slowed, it hasn’t stopped. Some users may have also noticed that we recently stopped pushing […]
Another Update to the Creality Touchscreens (and any Creality Machine!)
Been at it on the Creality Touchscreens again! This time we’ve expanded the branch with an auto-build option that allowed us to provide far more hex files as standard configurations. See the readme file for the breakdown, as file naming gets difficult with windows path depth limits. Some of the key items in the DW6 […]
New printer to the bunch : CR10-S5
A recent order required a number of large ABS+ parts, so I ordered a 500mm cube printer to handle them. Tiny Machines got the machine to me about a week after ordering, so they did a great job rushing it out for me. The machine as it comes is fairly simple. They do include a […]
New work bench up and running!
Have been a bit busy here. I’ve moved all 3 Taz 6 printers in to a new custom work bench in a corner of my arcade. I’ve got a large order of over 70 parts running at the moment, so I’ll get back to my slicer comparisons shortly!
Comparison of Slicers : Introduction to Cura
Cura is one of the most common slicers for a good reason. For this article, I am working with the 2.6 beta. The goal is to provide a simple, approachable interface to start with. It contains simple quick print settings for novices, then allows you to switch to expert mode and dig in. The default […]

Models on Thingiverse!
Lately I have been working on learning 3D Modeling and experimenting with Autodesk Inventor and Freecad. I have several things in mind that I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted online already, so a custom design was needed. My first design was a simple bracket to hold up a 1/4in thick canvas that my son […]
