The Creatbot F160 is an FDM desktop 3D printer. It features an all-metal chassis, which grants high printing stability and durability. It is available in both standard and PEEK version (F160-PEEK). The enclosed high-temperature build chamber keeps the printing temperature constant. This lets you successfully print with a broad range of temperature-sensitive performance filaments.
The Creatbot F160 is packed with a set of thoughtful features, including a power-outage recovery system and a filament detection mechanism. In case of a blackout or when the filament is about to end, it automatically stops the print and saves the extruder position. In this way, you will be able to restart the job from where it left off, a killer feature when printing large parts. The printer is equipped with an all-metal hotend and an aluminum heat bed covered with a BuildTak sheet for better adhesion. The self-developed material feeding system and the guide rails have been optimized for high-precision fast 3D printing.
The Creatbot F160 can be used for a wide array of applications, from rapid prototyping to design proofing and small-scale manufacturing. Read our review to find out more.
The following sample prints show the printing results achievable by the Creatbot 3D printers. Smooth edges, clean surfaces and a reasonable level of detail make them almost perfect.
The Creatbot F160 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 40 microns. This lets you produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces and fine details. Specifically designed to be fast and accurate, it employs a bespoke feeding system that prevents nozzle clogging. It enables uniform and smooth filament extrusion for quality print results.
The Creatbot F160 comes stock with a single nozzle of 0.4mm in diameter, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. The print head runs on linear guide rails. This makes printing reliable, fast and precise.
The Creatbot F160 comes bundled with a standard 260°C all-metal hotend capable of processing several materials, including PLA, ABS, Nylon, and others. The F160-PEEK sports a high-temp 420°C hotend for printing with high-performance materials, such as PEEK and Ultem.
Unlike many other desktop 3D printers, the F160 is equipped with both a 150°C heatable bed and an enclosed high-temperature build chamber. In this way, it reduces the risk of warping or stringing. This means it can reliably print with ABS-like and temperature-sensitive materials.

The Creatbot F160 prints with standard 1.75mm filaments. Depending on your printing needs, you are free to use any 3rd-party material.
The build area of 6.3 x 6.3 x 7.9 inches (160 x 160 x 200 mm) lets you print a range of small-to-medium quality products. Larger models can be printed in parts then assembled together.
The device can be controlled via the integrated 4.3-inch touch screen. Its English interface is really simple to navigate. A one-click button lets you quickly set most of the printing settings as well as launch your prints.
The fitted USB port lets you print your files from a paired computer or an external U disk.
The Creatbot F160 comes bundled with the own-brand CreatWare, an easy-to-use 3D slicing software. It runs on both Windows (7, 8, 10) and Mac OS. It supports the most common 3D file formats (STL, OBJ, and AMF). Printing files can also be generated using a different slicer, such as Simplify 3D, Cura, and Slic3r.
