Creality Ender 5 Plus is a personal Cartesian-style FDM 3D printer produced by the renowned Chinese manufacturer Creality. Given the company’s previous successful experience of supplying makers with large 3D printers, one of its current main focuses is creating cheap yet efficient machines like the Ender 5. Being the upgraded version of its counterpart, the Ender 5 Plus can be regarded as a fundamental machine among the Creality lineup. It features an extended build volume and modernized Z-axis that provides smoother movement and increases overall stability during printing. Another important and quite unexpected feature is automatic bed leveling. Besides, there is a filament runout sensor and resume printing function, allowing you to save time and always stay on top of the printing process. Just like the other Creality 3D printers, this machine is designed to undergo a lot of user-implemented upgrades.
The printer is equipped with a heated bed, metal extruding module, thermal runaway protection unit, user-friendly 4.3″ touch screen, and powerful V2.2 Creality mainboard. In addition, there is a stepper motor for each axis, providing additional stability and the utmost level of precision during the printing process. As a result, your prints will be perfectly accurate and have little to none surface finish issues.
The Ender 5 Plus is perfect for both entry-level users and more experienced makers. It is used to produce various household items, prototypes, accessories, tabletop models, souvenirs, props, cosplay accessories, and more.

The Creality Ender 5 Plus is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use.

The Creality Ender 5 Plus is equipped with a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. The nozzle can heat up to 260°C, making it compatible with a broader range of filaments.
The print head runs on rails, which makes printing consistent, fast, and precise. Yet there may be some play since this is a self-assembly kit. Its upgraded construction features improved stability and smoother motions provided by the Y-axis motor driving both belts at the same time, and dual Z-axis placed in the middle of the bed supported by 8mm rods.

The Creality Ender 5 Plus offers a variety of filament types to choose from. The device is compatible with PLA, ABS, Soft Glue, Wooden, Copper, Gradient, and other filaments. Moreover, the extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. The fan cools the model during printing, which reduces warping, stringing, and other issues.

The Creality Ender 5 Plus has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. The detachable bed can be swiftly calibrated by using an assisted leveling system. The top layer of the bed is made of glass, which ensures hassle-free print removal.

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 Ender 5 Plus prints with standard 1.75 mm filament. You can pick the material you prefer from any vendor benefiting from a wide material choice.

The Creality Ender 5 Plus offers an astonishingly large build area of 350 x 350 x 400 mm that lets you print just about anything. It is bigger than the area offered by the Ender 5, looks stylish, and bears no stability-related downsides. Such an outstanding print area allows you to print a single large model or simultaneously produce several small-scale prints in one go.
