Creality announced a series of dramatic price discounts on 3D printers for their Black Friday sale period, some of which are unprecedented in the industry.
The Shenzhen-based manufacturer is perhaps the largest producer of 3D printers on the planet these days, with some estimates suggesting they now produce nearly 1M machines each year. As a result of their popularity, their equipment is used worldwide.
The company produces quite a list of different desktop 3D printer models, and they’ve just announced dramatic price reductions for the Black Friday period. They have not one, but two 3D printers set at US$99 price points, the lowest in the industry.
Let’s take a look at some of the most notable price changes.
Sub-US$100 3D Printer
The most dramatic price is for the Ender-2 Pro 3D printer. This is not the company’s latest device, but it’s a competent desktop 3D printer kit that is mostly pre-assembled. For the first 100 units sold, Creality has set a breakthrough price of US$99. This is perhaps the lowest price for a new, decent 3D printer we’ve ever seen on the market.
Speedy 3D Printing
Creality also announced they’ve posted a ten percent discount on their latest flagship 3D printer, the Ender-5 S1. This device is full-featured with automation and ease-of-use capabilities, and Creality’s latest technology. The machine’s most important feature, however, is its print speed: up to 250mm/s, which is approximately 5X faster than most other desktop 3D printers.
Creality is also offering an additional 2% cash back if you post your purchase on their Facebook group, which is an approach I’ve never seen before by any 3D printer manufacturer.
Creality’s most popular line is their Ender-3 series. These desktop 3D printers are just the right size for most 3D printer operators, and offer good performance at low pricing. However, during the sale period the pricing drops even lower.
Creality is offering both current machines, the Ender-3 S1 Pro and Ender-3 Neo series, at 20% off, a significant discount.
The CR-10 was Creality’s breakthrough machine years ago with its combination of performance and low pricing. Since then the company has continually updated the machine, resulting in today’s CR-10 Smart and CR-10 Smart Pro. These machines offer larger build volumes at effective prices, making them suitable for low volume production applications.
Both machines are set for a huge 30% discount during the sale period.
Resin 3D Printer Discounts
In addition to FFF equipment, Creality also produces desktop resin 3D printers. During the sale period they have marked both their LD-006 and HALOT series at significant discounts.
The LD-006, which we previously reviewed, is an excellent resin 3D printer. Its discount price is an amazing US$99 for the first 100 units, making it perhaps the lowest price resin 3D printer you can buy. I should point out that the LD-006 is not a small machine; it has a very generous build volume.
Meanwhile, the company’s HALOT series (HALOT ONE (review here), HALOT-ONE PRO, HALOT-ONE PLUS, and HALOT-LITE) are all marked at discounts of up to 50% off.
Assembled 3D Printer Discounts
While most of Creality’s 3D printers are shipped in easy-to-assemble kit form, they also offer a couple of machines that are fully assembled and actually enclosed for more reliable 3D printing.
The machines in question are the CR-5 Pro series and the excellent Sermoon V1, which we have previously reviewed. These are marked at up to an incredible 40% off.
Notably, buyers from Creality’s Europe online store will also receive a free 3D printing pen with a Sermoon V1 purchase.
Finally, Creality is offering a series of discounts for a variety of other equipment and accessories, including their very intriguing Sonic Pad, laser engraver, 3D scanners (including the CR-SCAN Lizard, which we reviewed) and more. Some of these come with an up to five percent cash back program.
Creality Black Friday Sale
These discounts seem unprecedented. I haven’t seen such a significant sale of 3D printers perhaps ever. If you’re in the market for a Creality device, this could be the best week of the year to get one. Or more!
