Creality Announces CR20 3D Printer
Creality 3D have been riding high on the success for the CR10 and now two years after that printer put them on the map; They have announced the CR20 in this video. This seems to be an iterative upgrade on the CR10 with most of the hardware on the Z and X axis remaining the same as the stock Cr10. So we can expect the same great print quality, hopefully at a still affordable price. Hopefully, there will be more detailed preview coming soon but just from this short video, we can tell a few things about the printer.
Removal of umbilical box
Say goodbye to the umbilical box. A popular mod for the Cr10 was to remove the control box and mount the components under the heated bed. Either in a custom made box like in this video. Now all the components are housed under the printer in a custom enclosure.
Buildtak like surface.
The CrR10 now comes with a Buildtak like sheet, to allow print bed adhesion without the need for glue or hairspray. Hopefully, Glass sheets will be available for all those of you out there who love printing onto glass.
Upgraded Screen and encoder wheel
The CR20 also has an updated screen and encoder wheel, now built into the printer itself. Unfortunately, we can’t see it in working in the video Creality recently posted. But it looks like we won’t be getting a colour or touch display.
Now with this being the next generation of the CR 10, There are some features that I am sad to see are not included. Mainly any sign of auto bed leveling sensor. Which is strange as Creality just announced their own auto leveling add-on for the CR10 and S models. With the CR10 we would have liked to see it come as standard on the new model.
The other missing addition we would have expected is a dual lead screw as standard. With the CR10’s Impressive build height of 300mm it can become unstable when pushing those numbers near their limit. Creality does also have an official dual lead screw addon for the CR10 so it’s very surprising to not see it here in the updated model.
On the whole, we think this will be a great addition to the Creality line of printers and hopefully continue to bring affordable and quality printing to many more people. More information, images, and video will be available soon, and you can be sure we will keep you updated on this machine.
