What is the special of the Ender-6?

Ender-6 is a Core-XY frame 3D Printer. The printing base on the CoreXY motion System.

What is the Corexy motion System?

The coreXY device is having a bottom-to-top moveable print bed, as well as using 2 stepper electric motors to drive the movement of the X-axis and also Y-axis. When the left and right motors are in the same direction, they move to the X-axis, and when the two motors are reversed, they move to the Y-axis. the power will be more stable than a single motor to control one axis, and it can reduce the weight of one motor on the XY platform.

It means the CoreXY structure can increase the print speed to a greater extent, and also ensure stability.

Based upon numerous examinations, The Ender 6 print speed can reach up to 150mm/s, which is 2-3 times faster than other Ender series members as well as its rivals.

Ender 6 - Is the upgrade of the Ender-5, Ender 5 plus?

Creality Ender 5 series offer a similar print volume to the Ender 3 series but use an enclosed frame design for added stability.

Print quality-wise, the Ender 5 was convincing. During our review, the Ender 5 scored 23.5 out of 30 points in the Autodesk Kickstarter Test, putting it even above the Prusa i3 Mk3. Even with printing speeds up to 80mm/s, there was no noticeable print quality loss. On top, the Ender 5 handled a variety of filaments surprisingly well, only struggling – as typical for Bowden Drive 3D printers – with TPU. ”

While the Ender 5 misses some convenient features such as automatic bed-leveling, a filament runout sensor, or a durable print bed (we found the stock one to be rather flimsy and in need of constant releveling); it’s also where one of the printers strength lies: The hackability. There are several ways to upgrade the printer, from a BLTouch sensor for automatic bed-leveling, firmware updates, to various 3D printed add-ons.” - ALL3DP.COM

Ender 5 PLUS: US$585
