Creatbot D600 series offer great value for the price. They are prosumer dual-extrusion 3D printers with an all metal chassis, accurate linear guide rails, metal build plate and a great motion system. The left extruder is equipped with a 260°C hotend targeted at printing low-temp materials such as PLA, PETG, ABS, TPU and low-temp Nylon. The right extruder 420°C hotend is made of martensite steel, which is targeted at printing high-performance materials: high-temp Nylons, Carbon Fiber-filled thermoplastics and PC.
The printer’s motion and filament feeding systems have been designed to provide high print speed and an accuracy of up to 0.05mm. The direct-drive extrusion system helps to minimize stringing and oozing during the printing process. The printers can be easily operated via a user-friendly, responsive touch screen.
Their closed design keeps the internal temperature constant, ensuring higher repeatability with temperature-sensitive materials such as ABS/Nylon/PC as well as lower noise. The machines sport four wheels for easy movement.
Dry filaments in the in-house drying station for best results.
It is noteworthy that the brand new version of the Creatbot D600 called Pro 2 offers a plethora of additional slick features, including:
The D600 Pro and Pro 2 come with a 70 °C heated chamber to improve layer adhesion when printing with temperature-sensitive materials such as ABS, Nylon and PC. The auto-leveling system helps to compensate for any imbalances in the glass bed and increases the chances of successful prints.
In case of power loss, the printer will automatically memorize the current position and save print data. It will continue to print from the last stopped point after the power is on. The printer will avoid invalid printing by stopping to print and warning when filament runs out.
The HEPA Air Filtration system minimizes VOCs emitted from ABS and Nylon.
To the best of our knowledge, there is no alternative on the market that comes fully assembled, factory-leveled, with the same set of features under $12,000. Unless you consider large-format 3D printing kits, the next available alternatives start from $80,000+ in the case of the D600 Pro (there are very few machines with a build volume of 600 mm on each axis and an actively heated chamber). It's a great alternative to large-format 3D printing kits which are targeting advanced users, those who have the mechanical skills to maintain and upgrade them (although Creatbot also requires mechanical skills, same as any other heavy-duty machinery).
The D600 is widely used for prototyping, aircraft engineering, and small-scale manufacturing. The Pro versions are a solid option for automotive and aerospace applications as well as industrial design and modeling. Continue reading for an in-depth review.
The UiTM innovation team used a Creatbot D600 printer to create this BWB-B2S model. Accurate and smooth, with some additional post-processing it looks almost perfect.

The Creatbot D600 and D600 Pro / Pro 2 are large-scale FDM 3D printers that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. They can print as fast as 120mm/s (and even 150 mm/s in the case of Pro 2), delivering large-volume prototypes with a quick turnaround. The power-off recovery system automatically memorizes the nozzle position while saving the print data, giving you the possibility to restart a print job from where it left off. The filament run-out detection alerts you when the filament is about to finish, preventing printing failures. The glass bed surface provides good adhesion for most materials. The BuildTak surface reduces the risk of cracking when removing the print, while the Pro 2 version features a removable magnetic platform with the PEI sheet + PEI coating, making for the best results possible. D600 Pro’s auto-leveling function makes for greater printing accuracy.
The Creatbot D600 and D600 Pro come stock with two height-adjustable-nozzles of 0.4 mm in diameter. They also support a wide selection of replacements ranging from 0.3 to 1.0mm.
The print head runs on linear guide rails. This ensures high precision. The feeder system can be regulated with a tight knob. It lets you control how well the feeder grips the filament.

With the right setup, the devices can print with a variety of engineering-grade and high-performance materials, including ABS, HIPS, Nylon, PC and their Carbon fiber-filled variants. With all the doors open, the machine can also print certain variants of PLA, PETG, TPU and others.

All versions include a heatable platform. In the base model and D600 Pro, it consists of four different layers attached with special stickers, namely the metal support, the heating plate, the glass bed, and the Buildtak. With vertical thermal conductivity, it provides effective heating, while the magnetic suction platform in Pro 2 brings convenience and output to the next level.
The heated bed and the fully enclosed chamber make for higher reliability when printing with ABS-type materials.
The Pro versions’ hot chamber keeps the printing temperature constant while increasing your print success rate. It heats up to 70°C providing wider material compatibility.

Creatbot D600 and D600 Pro adopt two replaceable extruders tailored to different materials. Specifically, the left hotend heats up to 260°C, being able to print with standard filaments (PLA, ABS, flexible materials). The right one can reach up to 420°C. It is made of martensite steel, which means it can process high-performance thermoplastics (PC and high-temperature Nylons). In addition, the D600 Pro 2 is equipped with a smart auto-rising dual extrusion system.

The printers feature an open material system. This means they are compatible with any third-party 1.75 mm filament.
The D600, D600 Pro and Pro 2 feature the same build area of 23.6 x 23.6 x 23.6 inches (600 x 600 x 600 mm).
These huge sculptures have been printed with a 5kg roll of PLA. They took 80 hours of continuous printing.
Both D600 and D600 Pro can be operated via a 4.3-inch touch screen mounted atop the printer, while Pro 2 is equipped with a new 7-inch display offering better user interaction experience and more convenient operation. The display is easy-to-operate and responsive. They also feature a One-Key to preheat, print, and more.
You can easily transfer your 3D models from a computer via USB, with the D600 Pro 2 supporting Wi-Fi connectivity in addition.
The printers come bundled with the multilingual CreatWare 3D printing software. The program supports STL, OBJ, and AMF file types. It runs on Windows (7, 8, 10) and Mac OS X.

NOTE: The CreatBot D600 Pro 3D printer is built with a single phase and has a 220V voltage configuration. It has two power plugs. The left plug is power for the printer except for the hot chamber, totally 1000Watt. The right one for the hot chamber only, 3000Watt. The left one is 10Amp, the right one is 20Amp. Since the hot chamber needs a lot of power, the manufacturer separated it with an extra plug.
The machines are available in a white and blue configuration. Their stylish look makes them ideal for a variety of advanced industrial applications.
Creatbot D600 and D600 Pro dimensions are 36 x 33.3 x 42.7 inches (915 x 845 x 1,085 mm). They both weigh 276 lb (125 kg). The dimensions and weight of the D600 Pro 2 are 42.5 x 36.2 x 49 inches (1080 x 920 x 1245 mm) and 375 lb (170 kg). The spool holders are mounted inside the printer.
The price of the Creatbot D600 is $11,499 while the prices for the D600 Pro and Pro 2 are $12,999 and $15,999 respectively. Their cost is reasonable considering their functionality and large bed size, but as discussed earlier, we would expect extra investments on the side of the user to transform it into a more reliable, more versatile machine.
