On April 9th, Creality announced the launch of a new FFF cubic 3D printer Ender-6 on the 6th-anniversary celebration. With the stable core-XY structure and superior hardware parts enhanced, Ender-6 performs 3-times higher printing speed to deliver fine prints in the large print size
“We are quite excited to release new products at our 6th-anniversary celebration, the Ender-6 among which is specially designed to realize rapid 3D printing,” said Jack Chen, CEO of Creality, “3D printing is penetrating into more aspects of people’s lives, and 3D printers are rapidly changing and upgrading, which puts forward more new requirements for Creality to make new products with better performance. Ender-6 is here to meet the challenge.”
The highlights on Ender-6 include stable core-XY structure, optional enclosed chamber structure, self-developed silent motherboard, and more. Ender-6 is by far the most capable 3D printer in the Ender series as it is a real beast both in precision and speed.
Ender-6 Multiplies the Printing Speed to 3 Times, No way!
The Ender-6 is utilizing a core-XY motion system in its cube-shaped structure. Different from motion systems on Delta 3D printers and Cartesian 3D printers, the core-XY mechanism is having a bottom-to-top moveable print bed, and utilizing two stepper motors to drive the motion in X-axis and Y-axis. The print head will move in specific directions depending on which way the stepper motor is spinning, greatly reducing vibrations and weight the printer has to bear during motion. In this way, the printing goes at a higher speed without sacrificing quality.
Based on numerous tests, Ender-6 can reach up print speed to 150mm/s, which is 3 times faster than other Ender series members and its competitors.
Ender-6 Keeps Precision Record at ±0.1mm
“Ender-6 is such a workhorse that is capable of printing at higher speed without sacrificing printing precision. We are noticing that users are pursuing larger print sizes, higher precision, multicolor, or multi-materials, and more. We are thinking about integrating some advantages to one product achieving the best value of money, so Ender-6 is born,” said George Deng, the senior product engineer from Creality.
Ender-6 is utilizing a Bowden extruder which ensures a stable filament transmission through a PTFE tube to the nozzle. As the stepper motor is fixed, the total weight of the hotel is so light that it won’t result in overshooting and vibrations during the motion of the print head. In this way, Ender-6 significantly reduces imperfections on the print.
Moreover, Ender-6 is guaranteed with Creality self-developed silent motherboard. The Germany-imported TMC motion controller guarantees precise motion control and premium printing experience in silence. Based on data from Creality Research Institute, Ender-6 keeps its precision records at ±0.1mm while multiplying the print speed to 3 times.
Outstanding in Appearance and More than That
Ender-6 revamps with a new look— an integrated all-metal chamber body and strong Creality-blue corner connectors, making the machine appear in quite an exquisite appearance.
Furthermore, Creality provides another option for users who have requirements in printing a wider range of filaments. Ender-6 will be available in two versions, the one in open structure and the other with Acrylic plates in an enclosed structure. With Acrylic plates added on the four sides of the printer, Ender-6 will do better in preserving temperature within the print area, which will extend the filament choice from PLA to ABS, TPU, and more. Meanwhile, the transparent plates can still allow real-time monitoring of the 3D printing process from 360° all around.
Utilizing the Carborundum glass platform as it hotbed, it stresses a sense of elegance on this machine. More importantly, the superior heat resistance and thermal conductivity of the hotbed greatly improves heating efficiency and bed adhesion, which will result in exact smoothness even on the first layer of the prints.
The 4.3in HD color touch screen looks neat and exquisite on Ender-6. Moreover, the new user interface can provide users with simple and intuitive navigation in multi-languages. Users can get all information needed including print process, function overview, parameter settings, and more.
Ender-6 becomes such a powerful workhorse in the Ender series as it has inherited strengths from its predecessors and taken in new breakthroughs. It shall be an utmost choice for professionals, hobbyists, beginners, and everyone else to enjoy premium-quality 3D printing right out of the box. From April 9th，Ender-6 is available for all users to preorder, and will be in stock in May.
