With 500 x 500 x 500 mm, theoffers a gigantic build volume for a competitive price. Creality has updated the popular 3D printer. Let's review its specs.
Creality has released some of the most genre-defining 3D printers in the last years, with the CR-10 and Ender series.
After overhauling models such as the CR-10 V2 or the CR-10S Pro V2, Creality has now released a new and upgraded version of the largest 3D printer in its fleet (without adding the V2 addendum though).
With a 500mm x 500mm x 500mm build volume, theis one of the largest consumer 3D printers available and is capable of 3D printing enormous projects without the need to split them.
So what’s new to this super-sized 3D printer, and is it worth your money?
To find out, dive into our review of this printer’s specs.
At first glance, the Creality CR-10 S5 doesn’t appear to be extraordinarily different from its predecessor, but the manufacturer has packed several welcomed upgrades in this new iteration. Below is a quick overview of the features, the newhas in store.
The most notable upgrade that hits the eye is the CR-10 S5’s enhanced bed railing system. While the older CR-10 S5 version spotted only one rail, the updated version now comes with a dual bed railing system. Having to move the 500 x 500 mm heated glass build plate, a second rail should lead to a more stable movement and ensure a smoother printing experience.
A recurring issue with fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers is Z-wobbling due to the machine’s parts moving when operating. This can lead to unwanted layer shifting, especially when printing tall prints. The Creality CR-10 S5 is equipped with dual lead screws and two Z-axis stepper motor drivers. Combined with the printer’s sturdy aluminum frame, this feature should reduce vibrations, and therefore minimize Z-wobble, resulting in a smoother finish of prints.
Particularly when having the CR-10 S5’s build volume capacity in mind, a welcomed feature.
Another feature, the CR-10 S5 spots, is the upgraded bearing system. The manufacturer even advertises it as a patented technology for the XYZ aluminum V-slot bearing. As mentioned above, a 3D printer’s printing quality is, to some extent, depending on how much the machine is bucking and jerking when running.
With Creality’s high precision bearing, the printer should run more smoothly and less noisy.
An additional feature, the manufacturer advertises, is the newly upgraded industrial-grade circuit board. This should allow the printer to print stably up to 200 hours without any hick-ups. Especially when considering the CR-10 S5’s build volume, long prints, lasting two to three days, can be on the agenda. And the machine should handle them without a problem.
