For example, one user printed the Exo Cayde-6 helmet with this printer. Notice how smooth and fine detailed it is.

Another striking example: a user printed parts for the EE-33 gun from the Star Wars movie. He also added the genuine riflescope in order for the gun to look more realistic.

Print quality

The Creality CR-10 Mini is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. 

For example, see the model below. It took 24 hours 46 minutes to print, but it was all worth it. This 296g Low Poly Gengar is huge and well-defined. Send it out against other pokemons! But don’t forget to print a suitable Poke Ball.

The Creality CR-10 Mini has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. For example, check out the turbine below.

The print head runs on rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. There may be some play since this is a self-assembly kit, but the upside is you'll have solid knowledge of all the printer parts and how they interact together, giving you the flexibility to modify parts to fit your needs.

Materials

The Creality CR-10 Mini prints with PLA, ABS, TPU and other materials. 

The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

The Creality CR-10 Mini has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. Here’s an ABS-made Minion, it will be an exciting addition to kids’ studying environment.

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.

The Creality CR-10 Mini prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.

Printer controls

The printer is controlled via the built-in LCD interface which is user-friendly. There are some smarts to it, too. An auto-resume feature remembers where the printer left off in case of a power failure, and will resume printing when you start it up again.
