In this tutorial i'm teaching you how to connect Creality CR-6 SE to PC using USB cable. Installation is easy because you only need right drivers and no further setup.

Check that everything works

Depending what program you are using, you might need the information what COM port your 3d printer is using. You can see that information from device manager.

You can see what port was assigned to printer from device manager.

If you now open Cura and Monitor -tab in it, you should see that Cura automatically detects your printer. You can now test that the serial connection works both ways by using Pre-heat -button, and then see if the temperature starts changing. If that is the case, then everything is working.

Start Cura and open Monitor to see that it connects to printer.

Problems

If this driver doesn't work with your printer, it is possible that your printer has different USB to serial chip which means that you need different drivers.
