After researching 3D Printing for some time, we decided to purchase the Creality3D CR-10 S4 for prototyping. We were promptly informed of a possible shipping delay however, It arrived well packaged and within original delivery time. Very happy about that. S4 was easy to assemble and first print worked as expected. On one of the sub-menus, it appears to still show 300 x 300 area versus 400 X 400 but, otherwise feels solid and precise. Thus far, our experience with Creality has been excellent.
Design and Engineering
The printer took longer than expected to arrive, it comes very well packaged and practically assembled. I had read about some complications to assemble and broken components, but all the components are of very good quality, I had no problem in assembling it and it takes 30 minutes to do it, another 30 minutes to read the instructions and start my first impression. The resolution and volume are very good considering the price and that the purchase includes everything necessary to print on the same day you have the printer in your hands.
im new to the 3d printing world,after seeing many reviews about the creality cr-10 i decided i had to have it.
once i recieved the cr-10 i went over the printer checking every screw,plenty lose screws.
every wheel for x and y axis wasnt adjusted properly.
easy fix by performing proper maintence.
once up n running it was simple to use thingiverse and cura to start printing quickly.
after 1.5 hours of unboxing i was printing.
The test file inside the SD was damaged, but just download another from whativerse (also the same of the kitten) to do the first tests and calibrate it.
Very easy to assemble, excellent quality of materials. It has an absolutely enviable print / cost ratio, add us as well, which has an absolutely epic quality and print detail, nothing compared to other low-end 3d printers. The power supply is performing very well even after several very long press sessions and has never betrayed, which happens with a lot of money. Tested only with PLA, in ABS I have not had the opportunity and for now the need. Absolutely to recommend and follow the group dedicated to her on fb where they are published numerous tips and configuration files.
That is to me being a first time customer and not knowing how there system works, I am still trying to get my memory card but am sure the will resolve this problem soon. Looking forward to receiving my memory card.
Great product definitely recommend this!
Remember to look for manual/guide on the SD card included
First, thank you for the fast delivery. Packaging was excellent and without any problems, setup of The Creality CR 10 was easy, and I was printing in know time.
My first prints are successful, I had no failures just some adhesion problems but with some fine tuning of the bed leave and heat settings on the bed it all worked out great.
All in all I can say it was. A pleasant Experience and I will be buying more products, the Creality CR 10 is a awesome 3D printer and I would definitely recommend it to new 3D clients.
The order was slow to arrive at the destination because of the morbidity of the customs. As for the product, in the box of the 3D printer there are not all the tools for maintenance and calibrations, because a key is missing. 14 and another n. 13 for adjusting the belt and right wheel of the x-axis.
The print volume is clearly the best for the price. To think, I was going to pay for 3D printed parts. This printer cost less than the quotes I got, so I have already printed my parts at a savings. This was a really good deal for me.
As for the product, the equipment corresponds in 100% with the descriptions of the advertisement. Before adjusting the printer, there was a need for a few adjustments (belt and x-axis pulleys). The assembly and calibration of the 3D printer occurred as expected.
nicely packaged, protected with thick foam, great price for the quality of the prints that this printer can produce, big print surface, easy to assemble, I was printing in 15 minutes from opening the box, great print quality out of the box, everything is nicely organized in separate labled bags (parts, spares), one small spool of white PLA in the box; it printed nicely, the decorative strips came unmounted, which was a plus for me because I would have removed them anyway, but It is a bit loud
It came in basically 3 pieces, once assembled with only a few bolts in a couple minutes it was pretty much ready to go. It has a solid frame and smooth quick motions. It produces quality in a rather large (esp. for the price range) print area. The printer also came with tools for every nut, bolt, and screw on the thing. Among tools it came with a nice clipper, zip ties, masking tape, roll of PLA filament, and some extra parts.
This is my first 3d printer, after arrival it took less than 3 hours for me to get it up and running, I am an engineer but had never worked/played with one. Super easy to set up, super good quality on prints, if you are getting one join the fb group and read the FAQ as well as 'what to do before it arrives.
Easy to build!
Easy to start printing!
Great printing quality!
It comes with everything you need!
my pc was old and running windows xp and i had problems loading the slider software. Just means i also need a new computer. Hopefully earnest can help me out with that :) .
I will update this review when I get printing.
Thanks gear best for a great first experience.
It took only about an hour to finish the assembly and start printing, hardly any work. It comes with tools for assembly, tools for printing (tape, side-cutters, spatula), a micro-SD memory card and micro-SD adapter, a small roll of good quality white PLA, a spare Bowden tube and a spare 0.4mm nozzle, extra screws and other stuff. I used only the supplied tools to get my CR-10 running.Nice printer. I am thinking about buying another one.
This printer works very well. Whoever designed it was interested in the right balance between price and quality.
Come in handy for the newcomer to collect everything and start typing. Instructions all
on a flash drive in Chinese and English - you can figure it out.
The assembly process took about 1 hour + table calibration about 1 hour.
For the slice, I installed Cura, which comes bundled.
The plastic that comes in the kit is good, at a rate of 1/3 of a kilogram
Printer Creality CR-10, The printer itself came in excellent condition, everything is well packaged and fixed. Assembly elementary. In the set there are a lot of keys and in general all that.
Ordered it as a backup for my CR-10 S4. Took about 20-30 minutes to put together and discovered I had a warped glass plate. Not docking a star for that since I knew going into the purchase I'd likely receive a warped glass plate. Took a bit longer than normal to level the bed and tram the print head due to the warped plate but within 60 minutes of opening the box I started a 14hr print which finished beautifully...on the warped glass plate, no less.
The positioning of the spool holder is atrocious and will cause the control box to tip over into the printer the first time the printer encounters a kink in the filament. Re-locate the spool to the top crossbar and print the feed guide from thingiverse and you wont run into that issue any longer.
Print a replacement for the control knob on the control box.
Print larger bed leveling thumbscrews (available on thingiverse) to make leveling the bed FAR easier.
Mark 100mm of filament from the filament out sensor to the spool, then use the control box to preheat the extruder and extrude 100mm of filament. If the 100mm mark on the filament does not reach the hole on the filament out sensor, you are under-extruding and you will need to adjust your slicer settings.
Took over 30 min to assemble, but I'm ok with that. was simple to put together after figuring out how the pieces were supposed to set. The instructions where not very clear. Will update review at a later date after I have a chance to print out something.
First 3D printer and perfect! Couldn't ask for more of a walk through from beginning to end with the instructions. I might just have to buy the bigger bed!
It works well, already having a mini I knew what to expect. Does not disappoint. Had a few minor issues but that was fixed as I dialed in the machine. Would buy again
Product shipped quickly and arrived in great shape. Assembly and set-up were quick and easy.
Works great right of the box, setting it up wasn't difficult by any stretch, but it was harder than I anticipated. Youtube is your friend.
Awesome 3D printer. Having the huge print volume is a game changer compared to my Printbot Play. One thing to note and maybe its the same with all printers but with this one you have to re-level the machine before every print. Just the act of putting pressure on the glass to remove prior prints is enough to get it out of level.n Otherwise great printer!
Aboustly the easiest and best printer I've ever used. I've got 600 hours on it and it's going strong, I suggest adding nema 17 stepper steel and rubber dampners on it to make it quiet also to upgrade the fans in the control box to noctua fans other than that the wiring and quality is fantastic. Also the heated bed comes with a mosfet running it already in the contorl assembly.
loe the machine everything they said it would be
So far so good. I have never used a 3d printer before and was printing and upgrading in an hour
Good printer Outlook of the box
Printer works great!, Much better quality that previous version
Would be a great printer, had it not been shipped with a heated build plate that had bad soldering that shorted it out. Needless to say the build no longer works.
Takes a while to get the hang of but once you know what you're doing this printer delivers excellent quality prints.
It's hard to learn BUT..the results can be nearly "bought it in the store perfect" *.
* You need TIME to know how it basically works.
* it's NOT a toaster (but I wish it were).
* Leveling the bed and measuring the distance between it and the extruder (print head) is time well spent.
* In general, Quality = Slow.. The slower it prints, the better the quality
* It's SLOW (but not like rock-polisher slow)
* Package includes warped glass
* It's handy. The nerdier you are, the handier it will be (RISE UP) !
* The filament is still pricey for a beginner but acceptable
You may have noticed some reviews for this thing are LONG!
* Perceived store value depends on store. I'm thinking like maybe $1 Store/Dollar Tree. You may be thinking...I dunno what you're thinking.
