With the new CR-5 Pro, the popular 3D printer manufacturer Creality expands its portfolio with a 3D printer for professional use. The CR-5 Pro is a single-extrusion printer that can process a wider range of materials thanks to its closed design envelope. A touch screen with intuitive menu navigation makes it easy to use.
The CR-5 Pro has a solid metal housing with an installation space of 300 x 225 x 350 mm. Many of the components meet industry standards and are imported from well-known US manufacturers. These quality components make the CR-5 Pro a reliable part of your production workflow.
The masterchip is an ATMEL 2560, the power supply is from the well-known manufacturer Meanwell. High quality drivers control the mechanics precisely and let the stepper motors run quieter. The toothed belts are quality components of a US manufacturer and guarantee reliable x-y-axis precision of 0.012mm and thus permanently sharply detailed prints. The z-accuracy is 100 microns.
The extruder is supplied with a 0.4mm nozzle. Optionally, nozzle diameters of 0.2mm 0.3mm, 0.6mm, 0.8mm and 1mm can be used. The maximum extruder temperature of 250°C, the carborundum glass construction platform that can be heated up to 100°C and the closed construction space considerably extend the material spectrum. Many materials have to cool down slowly during printing to minimize the risk of warping. This is only possible with a closed installation space, as the temperature is maintained for a long time in the pressure chamber.
Filaments with 1.75 mm diameter are transported safely and through a quality bowden tube. A sensor detects whether filaments are being fed and pauses the printer if necessary. In the event of a power failure, printing is not rendered unusable, but can be resumed at the same point. This feature is particularly useful for large-format prints.
The printer is intuitively controlled via a touch display (English only). The print file is created using common slicing software like Cura, Repetierhost (both freeware) or Simplify3D (not included). The print data is transferred via a micro-SD card. Online transfer via a reality cloud solution is also possible, but is not recommended as printing can be interrupted by unstable Internet connections.
Please note: This product is categorized as an entry-level product, so unfortunately we cannot provide the same service and support for this 3D printer as for premium products. For support requests that go beyond simple first level support, we may need to refer you to the manufacturer.
