The Creality CR-5 Pro is a semi-industrial FDM 3D printer. Thanks to its precise transmission system, it can print layers at 100 microns with an XY-axis position accuracy of up to 12 microns. It allows producing flawless 3D models with quite smooth surfaces and a reasonable amount of details.
The pause and resuming option allows interrupting and continuing the print job from where it left off, reducing the risk of printing failures.
The Creality CR-5 Pro comes stock with a single 0.4-mm nozzle, which gives you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on linear rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. The state-of-the-art motherboard results in smooth motion, effective heat dissipation, and precise voltage control. It makes for a silent and safe printing experience.
The upgraded nozzle can heat up to 250°C while the heat bed reaches up to 100°C. This lets you print with a wide array of filaments, such as PLA, ABS, PETG, flexible materials and more.
According to the manufacturer, the CR-5 Pro features a redesigned Bowden extruder, which results in a smoother material feeding. It also improves the processing of flexible consumables. The extruder module includes a fan-cooling system for better heat dissipation and no warping.
The Creality CR-5 Pro comes stock with a heated Carborundum glass platform, which provides great adhesion while facilitating print removal. The hot bed along with the closed chamber allows reliably printing with a variety of ABS-type and temperature-sensitive filaments.
The Creality CR-5 Pro prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 11.8 x 8.8 x 20 inches (300 x 225 x 380 mm) lets you print large models in one piece. No need to split your models into parts.
The printer has a user-friendly interface. Thanks to the 4.3-inch touch screen, it gives you the possibility to easily manage the printing process.
3D models can be printed via a USB tethered computer or offline using an SD card.
The Creality CR-5 Pro works with the proprietary Creality Slicer. It is also compatible with most of the commercial 3D printing software available, including Repetier-Host, Simplify3D, and Cura.
