RECENSIONE CREALITY K1: VEDIAMO PIÙ DA VICINO QUESTA NUOVA E VELOCE STAMPANTE -3Digital

CREALITY K1 REVIEW: LET'S SEE THIS NEW AND FAST PRINTER CLOSERLY

Are you looking for a super fast and easy to use 3D printer? In this case, the Creality K1 This could be what's right for you! Creality's new model has caught the attention of 3D printing enthusiasts. One of its main features that has attracted the most interest is its speed.

Defined as “The Queen of Speed” by Creality, the K1 model will be available on our website from the beginning of June. In the meantime, we invite you to find out about the model and find out if it is worth considering.

Main features and specifications

The Creality K1 undoubtedly offers innovative features found only in more expensive 3D printers from other brands. Consequently, it stands out for its features and excellent price.

Let's see some of the most interesting features of this new 3D printer:

SPEED

Its maximum speed is 600 mm/s, which makes it 12 times faster than “normal” FDM 3D printers. It boasts an extraordinary acceleration of 20,000 mm/s² and reaches top speed in 0.03 seconds. Really fast, huh?

Furthermore, this model not only has a fast printing speed. Its heating floor reaches 60°C in 180 seconds.

LARGE BUILD VOLUME

Despite its compact size, the K1 offers enough space to unleash your creativity. With a build volume of 220 x 220 x 250 mm, this printer offers more than enough space to realize your most creative projects.

AUTOMATIC BED LEVELING

The most interesting feature is probably the automatic calibration. But how does it work? It is an automatic leveling feature that uses a sensor to ensure the bed is level before each print.

Therefore, thanks to the built-in auto-leveling function, the K1 is ready to use as soon as you receive it! The K1 will be delivered to you fully assembled and calibrated.

EFFICIENT COOLING SYSTEM

The K1's extruder features a powerful dual-sided cooling system that cools freshly printed layers directly on both sides. The 18 watt fan further increases the cooling effect. Thanks to this cooling system, the model hardens even before it forms strings or becomes deformed.

Advantages of the Creality K1

All these new features offer numerous benefits that will improve the way you work. Here you will find some examples:

  • Efficient working process: The build volume allows you to enjoy greater creative freedom without having to constantly think about whether the model will fit. Furthermore, the K1 is equipped with a sensor for detecting filament runout.
  • Smooth and precise prints: Your prints will be more stable and precise thanks to automatic leveling and dual Z-axis. Can you imagine a world without failed prints? A paradise.
  • Easy removal of prints: The flexible magnetic plate allows you to easily detach prints once finished.
