Time to setup up the cam
Start up to scan the QR code on my Iphone 11 Pro. But a message appear that the app is not available in my area or country. Okay I make 8 apple ID’s in different countries but same message. So I can get the cam up and running.
I write to Creality support and on facebook waiting 4 days and no answer. I wont to make sure that my message are sent so I try so SAME email and write that I want to order 20 printers after 1 hour I get a reply. I reply within 5 min. that I dont want any printers but answer on how to get Creality 3D viewer installed on my IOS device and again no after and that is now 7 days ago.
So what to do for this review to finish… Ahhh I got I buy a new phone (Andirod) for this review and to see the cam in action.
Phone is setup and I scan the code get on a webpage with a file NOT the play shop. I download the file and have to set security that it can install that app. WOOOW it works I got the app. So know it is just to follow the manuel steps.
Now I got live feed from the cam so what can I do… I have connected it to my Sapphire PLUS and start to move bed down and up and that works and live feed is running perfect. Then I move XY axis and also works fine. I move on to next menu I that is heating I enter 200 for the hotend and 60 for the bed and both start to heat so great. I go back to move and push Home and it homes, so while heating I slice 2 gcode files but them on my google drive so I can add the files remotely and start the printer. I go to add files find my google drive add the files but nothing show up on the screen, then I download the files from google drive to my android phone and add files from there but message show sometimes that file already exist. I take the SD card out of the cam. Yes there are some very funny looking files on with very long names. So I try to copy the gcode files on the sd card and then into the cam again. No files show up on the list. I try to look and the sd card and I did see to folders and look inside them one is empty the ohter one is full of files, so every time you power the cam it start to record and I have not found a way to stop that.
Remote control your printer No way I cant start a print and when you start a print on your printer you cant stop it remote, I did try to push home but please DONT do that is stop printing and homes when it is homed the it resume print but does not raise nozzle again so BUM into the print and slightly bed hotend.
Okay so I test on another printer this time Ender 3 pro with skr mini board. That test was short it wont connect to the printer. I move on to my Anycubic Predator it connect so I start and after about 1 min. it disconect I do try a few time but the same. So I stop the testing and connect to the Sapphire PLUS and want to test just video and photo option. Photo option also dont work when I try ” Photo Failed” video I can start but there is no point in start because it is recording from you turn is on. So that was the end no more testing.
After sale support
Creality After sales support = what support????
There is none support or no answer from them about the problem.
DONT BUY IT!!!
Good design good picture but that is it nothing like they promise.
Missing option to use your PC to upload gcodes for the cam remote.
Missing option to stop the printer if you are away and print fails
This looks like a product from Creality that is not even close to be finished.
Maybe I got a bad Camera but with no answer from after sale support then it is impossible to know.
Would I buy it if they fix all the bugs and get the software on the app stores, update the firmware.
Yes I would but for now it is useless. If you want to use cam and remote now the use octoprint
