CR 10 advantages
- Open Source: In the spirit of innovation and progress, we have decided to make our firmware and design plans available to all for extensive modding and improvements. We hope to create a large community of users who contribute to the project, ultimately resulting in a better product for all.
- Extra Large: This printer comes with one of the largest build spaces available. At 12inx12inx15.5in, you can print models that 90% of other printers could not. The unique Bowden extruder design reduces the weight on the X-axis, which delivers better performance even on very high prints.
- High Quality: This all aluminum frame provides a sturdy base meant to last for years. The POM engineering thermo-plastic "V-Slot" wheels offer excellent dimensional stability even during extended use. Elimination of metal-on-metal steel rods cuts noise down dramatically.
- Glass Bed: This printer comes stock with a reliable and flat glass bed. Forget about other printers with uneven printing surfaces and warped beds. This glass bed ensures a 100% usable and flat surface for any print from the smallest test file to the largest model. An absolute necessity when dealing with such an ample build space, print from corner to corner and get perfect layer lines every time.

One of the early large format machines that uses actual metal frames for rigidity. Good large scale format We have printed hundreds of hours of large models. Only draw back is the inability to heat the bed to 90-110 deg.
Bought two about a year ago, very self explanatory, very good design and build plate size is awesome! It's been pretty reliable for me, had a couple of hiccups, but mostly do to use error. My one machine does have an issue with bed heating, but my other is pretty flawless. I print almost everyday, and completely enjoy it, and couldn't recommend this enough for price to build volume! I had to upgrade a little but have printed, pla, wood pla, carbon fiber pla, tpu, and abs successfully. No doubt my next printer will also be a creality
If you are a beginner/intermediate in the field looking for a decent price and good quality printer I still believe this machine will be the one for many. I recently purchased the Cr-10 as I was looking for something to both get me started and handle against more advanced prints and materials. I received this printer hoping for an easy setup on my feet straight away, however upon installation, inspection and bed leveling to my best ability, I found both the glass and metal print bed to be warpes. This became very problematic as I struggled to print just the testing models provided and even after manual leveling the filament would not stick to the bed. The only solution I found to work the best was to apply the tape provided to the glass bed, additionally applying a thin glue stick layer to the top as every other time the part would break free again. Amongst all these issues which should not have taken as long as expected, i am pleased with the quality of some prints which have all been made using PLA, Through my experience I could only assume ABS would be even more problematic.
