The Creality Sonic Pad is taking the 3D printing world by storm. It’s a perfect combination of power, size, and features for a low price. But did you know you can level up your Creality Sonic Pad with free and unlimited remote access, app support, AI print failure detection, and more?

It’s true. OctoEverywhere empowers the worldwide maker community with free and unlimited remote access to their full Sonic Pad web portal, app support, next-gen AI failure detection, real-time notifications, and so much more.

The best part? It only takes 60 seconds to set up! Start now!

Step 1 – Enable SSH Root Access

SSH, or Secure Shell, is disabled by default on the Creality Sonic Pad. SSH is a standard tool for accessing and controlling your Sonic Pad from another computer. Think of it like a local remote desktop for your Sonic Pad.

Enabling SSH and getting the root password on the Creality Sonic Pad is easy:

  • From the Creality Sonic Pad home screen, select “Configure”
  • Select “Other Settings”
  • Scroll down and select “Advance options”
  • Scroll down and select “Root account”

You will see a warning informing you about the power of root access. But don’t worry; our guide will walk you through the steps required, and there’s no risk to your Sonic Pad or printer.

Scroll the text down to reach the bottom, check the box, and press “Next Step”. You will then see the SSH root login information for the Creality Sonic Pad. The default user name is root, and the password is cxsw-sonic_2023.

Step 2 – Find The Creality Sonic Pad’s IP Address

Each device on your home network has a unique IP address that allows it to communicate with other devices. To SSH into your Creality Sonic Pad, you will need to find the IP address of your Sonic Pad.

  • From the Creality Sonic Pad home screen, select “Configure”
  • Select “Network settings”
  • Select “Wireless network” or “Wired network” depending on your setup
  • The IP address will be listed at the top; write it down.

Step 3 – Log Into Your Creality Sonic Pad With Root Access

You will need to use a terminal, such as PuTTY for Windows or the Terminal app on a Mac. When you have selected a terminal, log into your Sonic Pad using this command:

ssh -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-rsa root@<your-sonic-pad-ip>

For example, if the IP address of your Sonic Pad is use:

ssh -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-rsa [email protected]

You will be prompted for the password you got when you enabled root SSH access. Enter: cxsw-sonic_2023

You did it! You now have a remote terminal open to your Creality Sonic Pad logged in as the root user! 🥳

Step 4 – Install The OctoEverywhere Plugin For Remote Access

The hard part is over! Now, run the following commands in the remote terminal to download and install the OctoEverywhere plugin:

cd /usr/share/

git clone octoeverywhere

cd octoeverywhere


If you’re wondering what’s happening, the cd command is used to move the terminal to a different folder, in this case, the /usr/share folder. git clone downloads our open-source plugin code to your device. cd once again moves the terminal into our plugin’s code folder. Then ./ command starts a script that does the plugin install.

Done! 🚀
