Createbot MINI is a compact and easy-to-carry FDM desktop 3D printer. It is composed of a metal frame with acrylic covers, which provide a stable yet reliable 3D printing experience. The device comes already assembled and ready to use. Despite its small footprint of 325 x 303 x 428 mm, it offers an interesting printing area of 150 x 150 x 220 mm.
Accurate and precise, it is available in both single- and dual-extruder configuration. Also, it can be purchased with either an LCD display or a color touchscreen. If you are looking for a multi-material, small 3D printer, Createbot MINI is right for you. The heated build plate lets you print with a wide selection of 3D printing filaments, including ABS ones.
Makers, designers and hobbyists find it ideal for personal use. Read on for a deeper review.
One user tested the Createbot MINI printing capabilities producing a set of 3Dbenchy models. They came out good showing a great level of accuracy and detail.

Createbot MINI 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.
This Ivysaur planter is a great example.
The Createbot MINI comes with a self-made nozzle of 0.4 mm in diameter. Designed to reduce the odds of clogging and leakage, it gives you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Createbot MINI prints with PLA, ABS, PETG, PVA, 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.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Createbot MINI 3D Printer has a heated print bed and a closed print chamber, which means it can reliably print with ABS-type materials. The enclosure keeps out air drafts while maintaining a constant printing temperature inside the chamber.
The Createbot MINI prints with any type of 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 5.9 x 5.9 x 8.7 inches (150 x 150 x 220 mm) lets you print small models in one go. Larger objects can be printed in parts and then assembled using acetone (for ABS) or glue (for PLA).
The Createbot MINI can be controlled both via a USB-tethered computer or via the integrated display. Depending on the type of screen you choose, you can benefit from an LCD display with a rotating knob or a color touchscreen.
You can print your 3D files from a computer via an SD card or USB cable. Wi-Fi and U disk connections are available as an option.
The printer works with the most common 3D model formats (STL, OBJ, and DAE). It is compatible with Cura, Slic3r, Simplify3D, and Repetier-host software. The Createbot software runs on Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, and Linux.

Createbot MINI 3D printer is available in a broad range of colors. It is widely used for both education and home use.
The printer dimensions are 12.8 x 11.9 x 16.8 inches (325 x 303 x 428 mm). It weighs 24 lb (11kg). The spool holder is mounted on the inside.
The price of the Createbot MINI 3D Printer is $699.00 USD, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
