The Creality CR-10 V2 is a classic beginner-friendly budget 3D printer. Below are some features to consider before purchasing the CR-10 V2 3D printer by Creality.
The CR-10 V2 is part of the Creality CR-10 series and has a similar design to other printers in this series. This device has the “golden triangle” design that reduces Z-wobble and improves sturdiness and print quality. This 3D printer is made of high-quality materials.
The CR-10 V2 has to be assembled since it comes in different boxes to reduce the box size. However, do not fret because the assembling process is easy and should take you about 15 minutes to finish. The main thing to assemble is mounting and attaching the Z-frame to the base. You will also have to connect a few cables, and you are done. Creality includes a manual with clear instructions on how to assemble this printer.
The CR-10 V2 3D printer comes with semi-automatic and manual bed leveling. But not to worry, the manual process is relatively easy. You will need to use for knobs to get the leveling right. And after getting it right, the CR-10 V2 works excellently and will not require much leveling afterward.
The Creality CR-10 V2 3D printer has a large build volume with dimensions of 330 x 300 x 400mm. This 3D printer is ideal for printing detailed large models. Creality also includes two cooling ducts on its radial blower fan. The cooling these ducts provide increases the print precision by 55 percent.
The Creality CR-10 V2 printer comes fitted with a tempered glass print bed. The CR-10 V2 print bed can reach a max temperature of 100 C. This print bed is solid and offers increased viscosity that improves print quality. You can easily remove your models from the glass bed. The glass print bed is heat-resistant and offers durability.
The Creality CR-10 V2 is a fast printer with a print speed of 180mm/s. This 3D printer produces excellent quality prints with a precision of +0.1 mm and a layer thickness of 0.1 – 0.4 mm.
Like other printers in the Creality CR-10 series, the CR-10 V2 also comes with the resume print feature. This feature will stop printing when the power goes out. It continues printing when power is restored.
The CR-10 V2 has a new motherboard with a TMC 2208 ultra-mute driver. This updated Creality stepper driver is mute and offers silent printing. This steeper driver should work under 50 dB.
This 3D printer comes with an HD screen designed with a user-friendly interface. This screen comes with large viewing angles and allows you to control the CR-10 V2 printer. You can navigate through the menu using a wheeled button that’s easy to use.
The CR-10 V2 3D printer uses the upgraded 350W Mean Well Power that provides about 200 hours of continuous printing. This power supply is also safe and stable.
The Creality CR-10 V2 is versatile and compatible with several slicing software, including Cura, Simplify 3D, and Repetier-Host. This device can be connected using an SD card or USB. And the CR-10 V2 is also compatible with popular operating systems, including XP, Mac OS, Windows, and Linux.
The CR-10 V2 3D printer, like others in the Creality brand, is compatible with various filament types. This device works with ABS, PLA, TPU, and PETG. This 3D printer has a filament diameter of 1.75mm. This 3D printer also comes with a filament run-out sensor. The CR-10 V2 device will stop running when the filament runs out. However, it is like a pause, not a stop, because this printer will continue where it left off once you replace the filament.
