Creality, a global pioneer in 3D printing, recently celebrated its 9th anniversary with a series of announcements, including the release of its revolutionary K1 Series of high-speed 3D printers.

Over the years, it has developed cutting-edge and innovative products such as the CR-10 and Ender-3 series FDM printers, as well as the Halot range of resin printers and other accessories, and has expanded its footprint to more than 100 countries and regions, with over 3.5 million users worldwide.

To commemorate the occasion and further democratise 3D printing technology, Creality released its latest products, including the K1 series of high-speed FDM 3D printers, the HALOT-MAGE series, the Sermoon D3 Pro, the Creality Falcon2 40W, the CR-Scan Ferret, the Creality Nebula Pad+AI LiDAR, and other accessories. Along with new products, Creality introduced a line of 3D printed footwear for users who embrace change and futuristic fashions. 

“3D printing has long been favoured by those with an engineering background who love coding, modelling, and tinkering. But for others who also want to turn their creativities into realities, operating a 3D printer still requires a steep learning curve – and this is what we aim to solve. Leave the complexity to ourselves, and give the simplicity to users is our understanding of being user-centric. Our development of high-speed intelligent 3D printer will be no mean stop here, and we have already planned for a future where every home can enjoy the convenience of 3D printing technology.”

– Ao Danjun, CEO of Creality

K1 Series of High-Speed 3D Printers

Creality’s FDM flagship K1 series, which includes the K1 and K1 Max, is a professional-grade CoreXY 3D printer line-up with printing speeds up to 600mm/s and build volumes up to 300 x 300 x 300 mm. It has an innovative motion system that makes use of a lightweight printhead weighing only 190g to ensure fast movement. According to Creality Lab data, the K1 series ramps up to the top speed of 600mm/s in 0.03s at an acceleration of 20000 mm/s2, and printing a 3DBenchy takes only 13 minutes, which is 12 times faster than the average.

It comes with a new generation of Creality OS that runs on a 2-core 1.2GHz CPU, giving it plenty of computing power for fast printing. The K1 series can be controlled or monitored remotely from Creality Print or Creality Cloud via a network connection. When a large number of K1 series printers are online, cluster control is also possible. A notification will be sent to the user’s phone or PC once the printing is completed or if a printing issue is detected.

The K1 Max also has an AI camera in the print chamber, which allows for real-time 1080p print monitoring. The AI camera and AI LiDAR can be purchased separately for K1 users. G-sensors are used in both the K1 and K1 Max to solve the resonance problem and eliminate ringing or ghosting patterns on the surface of models caused by high-speed printing.

The Creality K1 and K1 Max are now available for pre-order on Creality Official Stores and local stores in the US and EU.

HALOT-MAGE series

Creality’s next-generation solution for smart resin printing is the HALOT-MAGE series, which includes the HALOT-MAGE and HALOT-MAGE PRO. The HALOT-MAGE PRO is one of the fastest resin 3D printers on the market, designed for miniatures, jewellery, dentistry, crafts, and other applications. It prints three to five times faster than other printers while maintaining excellent print quality at speeds of up to 170mm/s.

The HALOT-MAGE PRO has an agile “Dynax” motion system that allows the build plate to be steadily lifted and lowered in 1.2 seconds and then ready for printing the next layer. Aside from the hardware, the self-developed motor algorithm allows the motor speed to reach 100mm/s, which improves the printing speed from a software standpoint. The models now have solid supports in the next version of the HALOT BOX slicing software.

The HALOT-MAGE PRO’s “MageArch” flip lid is simple to open and close with one hand and can be set aside. For minimal interference, the orange tint effectively blocks 99.89% of ambient UV light.

The HALOT-MAGE is a low-cost smart resin printer for miniature makers that includes a 10.3-inch 8K LCD screen, an air purification system, and the “MageArch” flip lid.

Sermoon D3 Pro

The Sermoon D3 Pro inherited the Sermoon D3’s industrial-grade stability from last year. It has a printing speed of up to 300mm/s, LAN printing capabilities, and material compatibility, making it suitable for industrial production, prototyping, and education.

The Sermoon D3 Pro employs a dual extrusion system, which allows for support printing while also ensuring stable support structures. It has undergone rigorous validation and supports over 20 different types of materials, including water-soluble and metal filaments, as well as over 30 different material combinations.

The active heating function of the Sermoon D3 Pro improves print quality, while the constant temperature chamber design effectively eliminates internal model deformation. It also employs an intelligent automatic levelling system that can be completed with a single button press, saving time and effort.

Creality has also collaborated with BASF Forward AM to develop a metal and support printing additive manufacturing solution for the Sermoon D3 Pro based on FDM technology. Using BASF’s metal and support filaments and global sintering service in conjunction with the Sermoon D3 Pro 3D printer, this solution can cut sample printing time in half and increase production efficiency by more than 80%.

Creality Ecosystem offerings

CR-Scan Ferret 3D scanner

Creality Falcon2 40W: Creality Falcon2 40W is the company’s most powerful laser engraver to date. It can cut through 20mm wood board and 0.15mm stainless steel in one pass at speeds of up to 25000mm/min and is equipped with ground-breaking features such as Dynamic Spot Size Adjustment, which automatically adjusts the spot size based on engraving and cutting requirements. With a smart monitoring system and upgraded safeguards, it also supports colour engraving and air assist.

CR-Scan Ferret: The CR-Scan Ferret is a 3D scanner that is intended to make modelling simple and accessible to all. The Ferret produces high-quality scans even in bright sunlight thanks to its efficient ASIC chip, full-color camera, and structured light. The handhold stand on the Ferret allows for both handheld and turntable scanning, making it ideal for scanning small and large objects. The Ferret is a compact, easy-to-carry tool that weighs only 105g and is ideal for quickly creating stunning 3D models.

Creality Nebula Pad+AI LiDAR: The Nebula Pad is an all-in-one smart interactive terminal that allows for faster, higher-quality printing at any time and from any location. It can achieve auto-levelling, first-layer detection, and filament flow monitoring when combined with the AI LiDAR, significantly improving print quality and print success rate. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with a 1080P USB camera with night vision (sold separately), the Nebula Pad can provide 24-hour monitoring and time-lapse photography to capture the entire printing process and detect spaghetti issues.

3D Printed Footwear Solution

Creality introduces a series of one-stop FDM 3D printed footwear solutions for users who embrace change and futuristic fashions for the first time. With a series of 3D footwear models, Creality created a professional-grade “Sprite” extruder for soft materials. This package is ideal for those looking for personalised footwear design, such as street fashion enthusiasts, as well as medical institutions looking to print custom diabetic-friendly shoes and orthotic insoles.

At the ceremony, 200 pairs of 3D printed shoes are displayed on stage, and a footwear model design contest is being held to encourage users to submit their works via Creality Cloud and unleash their imagination.
