Creality announced not one, but four new desktop 3D printers with added intelligence and convenience.

The four new products include the CR-10 Smart Pro, the Ender-3 S1 and the Sermoon V1 and Sermon V1 Pro. Each is a bit different and there’s something for everyone in this group of 3D printers.

Let’s take a look at each 3D printer.

CR-10 Smart Pro

The CR-10 was Creality’s breakthrough machine many years ago, and since then it’s continually received upgrades and enhancements, leading to today’s CR-10 Smart Pro. The CR-10 Smart was introduced earlier this year, and it’s main feature was a fast 32-bit controller that permits a lot more intelligence in the system. The device was smart, quiet and had a large build volume. (See image at top.)

The CR-10 Smart Pro continues the enhancements with the addition of an automated leveling system that should increase print reliability. In addition, the hot end has been made all-metal (Chromium Zirconium Copper), and that permits the use of more engineering-level materials, including TPU, PA and even carbon fiber-reinforced filaments.

The 32-bit processor is leveraged by the new 4.3” color touchscreen, which now can perform over-the-air firmware updates when they are available. There’s also an onboard camera that when used with Creality Cloud via WiFi can assist with remote operations.

The device still sports a massive 300 x 300 x 400 mm build volume, and uses a convenient spring steel coated magnetically-attached print plate for easy print removal.

Ender-3 S1

The Ender series is perhaps Creality’s most popular line of equipment, and there have been many upgrades in the few years since its introduction. Now, we have the Ender-3 S1.

The Ender-3 S1 has a build volume similar to previous models at 220 x 220 x 270 mm, and has a magnetically attached spring steel build plate for easy print removal.

It also uses a 32-bit controller, and the popular silent stepper motor drivers. This makes the device extremely quiet during operation.

The Ender-3 S1 includes a new extruder, the “Sprite” direct extruder. This new extruder has been designed for “smooth feeding” and is able to handle a wider variety of materials, including PLA, TPU, PETG, ABS and more.

One very interesting change on the S1 is that Creality has reorganized the device and packaging to simplify assembly. Now there are only six steps involved to get the machine up and running, ideal for those new to 3D printing who might fear difficulties in assembly.

Sermoon V1 and V1 Pro

The Sermon series from Creality might not be as well-known as their CR and Ender series, but they are quite interesting machines.

The two new machines are both enclosed devices, meaning they can capture stray heat from the build platform and reduce the thermal gradient when printing. In other words, this machine should have greatly reduced warping when printing engineering materials.

The enclosure is also intelligent: if a door is opened during printing, the job is paused. This makes the machine safer for use by educators, for example, as there is lower risk of getting one’s fingers caught in the machinery.

Sound levels are very low with the Sermoon devices, because the 32-bit controller runs silent stepper drivers, like the other new machines. However, the Sermoon machines also include “super silent” fans that take the machine’s operating noise level down to only 45dB, which is essentially inaudible in a typical office environment.

The Sermoon V1 Pro has been upgraded to directly connect with Creality Cloud, making them easier to operate, particularly in workgroup environments.
