The CR series is the collection of 3D printers where Creality really hit its stride. These FDM printers are perfect for entry level 3D printers, diehard enthusiasts, and businesses. The CR series includes over a dozen models, ranging in size, volume, and functionality. 

The main appeal of the CR series is their affordability and reliability, paired with an elegant and sleek style. These machines are more than suitable for 3D printing businesses and professionals, with large build volumes and long runtimes (the CR-10 V2 can run for 200 continuous hours). 

Hobbyists and amateurs have also come to love the CR series with their easy assembly and auto-levelling technology. This makes them perfect for DIY projects and creative, cost-efficient, prints.

The CR-10 Smart is the newest addition to the CR series, and it is proving to be a robust, and stylish 3D printer that is jam-packed with features and may offer one of the best 3D printing user experiences.

Top Features of the CR-10 Smart

The key features that come with the CR-10 Smart are all impressive in their own right. Together, they form a powerhouse of an attractively priced 3D printer.

Built-in Wi-Fi

This is a big one. With the newly implemented Wi-Fi functionality, you can control this 3D printer at any time, from anywhere. Built-in Wi-Fi is a feature that was sorely missing in the CR series, and it’s finally here!

These drawbars are sturdy and stable, meaning your prints will be precise. Superior precision is exactly what the CR series is known for, and the CR-10 Smart is no exception.

Intelligent Auto-leveling

Auto-leveling is a must have with 3D printers. This allows for near perfect, high-quality, printing results. The CR-10 Smart will ensure your printing bed is level for every print.

Ultra-silent Design

The mainboard on the CR-10 is mute and so is the fan. This means your printing will be the quietest it’s ever been. Don’t worry about that power supply either, it’s low noise too!

Why Do People Love the CR-10 Smart?

With the amount of innovation Creality has put into the new CR-10 Smart, it’s hard to deny why they called it smart.

The CR-10 Smart’s support for both Wi-Fi and RJ45 wired network connections are much appreciated. This means you can use the Creality Cloud app to slice your 3D models and have full control of the printer remotely. The doubled resolution of the angle touch screen gives the 3D printer a futuristic feel.

The application of an auto-shutdown feature makes the CR-10 Smart eco friendly. It also supports auto feeding and retreating filament, making your print jobs easier. It’s quiet and it’s sturdy. This model in the CR series also comes with a carborundum glass bed, which gives the 3D printer a smooth glass surface to work on.

When Creality says that this smart 3D printer has a super car design, they mean it. The edges on the plastic covers are sharp, the extruder is hidden so you can’t see fragments of filament, and the jet-black colouring makes the whole printer look sleek.

There is no question that the CR-10 Smart will become a fan favourite for both hobbyists and professionals alike. This newest 3D printer from Creality is quickly becoming a must-have.
