If you’ve ever enjoyed taking the exciting risks of multi-day prints that keep on going overnight while you sleep, you can understand just how stressful it can be when you realise that there may not be enough 3D Filament left on the spool to finish the entire model. Fortunately, while that used to be a major problem in the past, and would require some careful planning to ensure that prints weren’t ruined by on-the-fly filament changes, nowadays this is much less of a hassle, especially given the fact that 3D Printers offer substantially more features, with filament runout sensors being key components in protecting long or large prints from unexpected fails and faults.

This Filament Runout Sensor is a specially designed sensor for the Creality CR-6 SE 3D Printer, and is designed with both a tiny form factor as well as reliable operations in mind. It utilises an infrared breakbeam sensor for high responsiveness, smooth brass inserts for minimal wear during filament feeding, and features a blue/red indicator LED to give you a visual hint of whether the sensor is detecting filament or not. These features are all quite basic, but when put together in one single unit, these features give this filament runout sensor genuine value that anyone can appreciate. So if you’re struggling with a broken filament sensor on your Creality CR-6 SE, or if you would like to use the relatively basic design and adapt it other 3D Printers that you have, you can rely on the great build quality and clever design features of the Creality CR-6 SE Filament Runout Sensor.

Filament Runout Sensor for Creality CR-6 SE

Although Creality 3D have been working within the industry since 2014, their addition of the Creality CR-10 series is what really catapulted them to the front line of competition, as it offered substantially better quality compared to other 3D printers – while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexities of the machines.

The quality of Creality’s 3D Printers and accessories shows through in their market history, with the brand selling around 3000 printers in their first year on the market, followed by about 10,000 sales over the next year. Now, Creality easily sells around 30,000 or more 3D printers each year, with sales continuously rising as they bring out more models. These are impressive numbers when considering the fact that they entered the industry as unknown competitors, quickly rising through the ranks and now even competing with Wanhao and similar top brands.

If you are looking for excellent 3D Printers that offer affordability without compromising on quality, Creality 3D is certainly a brand that you should take note of. From the basic Creality Ender 2 all the way up to the large build volume Creality CR-10 S5, there are few other brands who are capable of offering such a refined package while still maintaining some of the most enticing prices in the industry.
