The Creality CR-20 is a personal FDM 3D printer kit. As a member of the Creality CR family, it shows the typical modular-styled design of the CR-10. It is fully open-source and comes in two main parts: its assembly is a child’s play. You’ll have to tighten six screws and you are done. Focused on better user experience and more quality, the CR-20 is mainly used by hobbyists and students. Some of its flagship features are a self-adhesive print bed, resume printing after a power outage, filament detector, upgraded mainboard, and consistent print speed. It’s been used to print a wide variety of models and functional parts. Continue reading for a full review
One user decided to build its own lightsaber. He printed the three components separately. Despite the 3D printing characteristic layered texture, they look really nice.

The Creality CR-20 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. The self-adhesive flexible bed ensures a good adhesion of the first layer and easy print removal.

The Creality CR-20 has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise.
Creality CR-20 prints with PLA, PETG 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.
Notice how smooth this F5 Tiger Aircraft looks like.

The Creality CR-20 has a heated Buildtak-like print bed with an adhesive surface, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. The bed is flexible and can be detached to easily remove the prints.
To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber to keep the temperature constant. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
The Creality CR-20 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 8.7 x 8.7 x 9.8 inches (220 x 220 x 250 mm) lets you print just about anything you will need. Like a Sora crown from Kingdom Hearts, for example.

The printer is controlled via a built-in LCD with encoder wheel. The display is placed at a 30-degree tilt angle enabling smoother operation.
3D models can be printed from a computer over USB or with the SD card.
The printer supports G-code files from any 3D software. It works really well with Cura, Simplify3D and Repertier-host slicers. These programs are available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
