Creality CR-10S is an enhanced version of the popular CR-10. Sold at an affordable price, the CR-10 series grants excellent printing performance while remaining simple to use and maintain. Unlike the original version, the CR-10S introduces some noteworthy features and a larger print area that makes it totally worth the price.
The machine comes as a kit. Some major units come pre-assembled, streamlining the assembly process. After mounting the printer, you will benefit from a brand new filament run-out detection sensor and a resume option for print recovery in case of blackouts. These thoughtful features provide higher reliability, especially when printing large models. The open structure makes the device highly accessible and simple to maintain and upgrade. With the right mods, it can start printing like higher-end professional 3D printers.
Ideal for anyone, from students and hobbyists to tinkerers and 3D printing experts, this FDM machine can be used to print a wide variety of models. Let’s review some additional specs.
Creality CR-10S performs very well when modeling human body parts. Just have a look at this big bust. Printed in two parts, it shows fine details, smooth surfaces, and a few wrinkles too.
This large ship is a good example of how big the device can print. Produced in one go, it shows tiny and accurate details.
The Creality CR-10S perfectly handles printing at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The metal build plate, the sturdy gantry and the quality hardware allow for high quality, precise prints. An additional rod for the Z-axis minimizes wobble while printing delivering smoother results. The detachable bed facilitates print removal.
This robot army is really accurate and well-defined. Each model shows capillary details and exceptional dimensional accuracy, no matter their size.
The Creality CR-10S comes stock with a 0.4 mm nozzle. It also supports an extra 0.3 mm nozzle, offering you the right balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings. This offers more flexibility, making the printing more simple and effective. These are some of the most desirable features for a performance 3D printer.
Creality CR-10S can work with PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU, special filaments and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan, which is good for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

The printer is equipped with a removable glass bed that heats up to 100°C. It allows printing with ABS-type materials.
Installing an enclosed print chamber is recommended to significantly increase performance, especially when printing with temperature-sensitive filaments. This way temperature fluctuations will not affect the quality of the printed model. An enclosure is also useful to increase printing reliability and repeatability.
Creality CR-10S uses any type of 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 11.8 x 11.8 x 15.7 inches (300 x 300 x 400 mm) lets you print just about anything without the need to divide your 3D models into parts.

The printer comes with an external control box with a fitted LCD screen and a rotating knob. It provides a simple and user-friendly interface for easy operation. The auto-resume option along with end-of-the-filament detection is a real killer feature. In case of a power failure, the printer will automatically resume printing from where it left off.
You can comfortably print your 3D models from a USB-tethered computer or via an SD card directly plugged into the device.
The printer works with Cura slicing software. This well-known 3D printing program supports G-code, JPG, OBJ, and STL formats. It is available for Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Linux users might install a virtual machine to get it up and running.
For some items, package content may change. In case of any questions, please get in touch.
Creality CR-10S is available in black, gray, white, yellow or red colors. Its stylish look makes it ideal for both home and professional use.
The printer dimensions are 24.21 x 23.62 x 19.29 inches (615 x 600 x 490 mm). It weighs 28.6 lb (13 kg). The printer features a standalone spool holder mounted on the independent control box.
The price of the Creality CR-10S is $395.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
