Creality Releases Open-Source Code for Ender Series, Introduces Upgraded Features and Special Offers
The maximum print speed for Ender-3 S1 has now shot up to 160mm/s with resonance compensation.
Shenzhen, China, May 15, 2023 – Creality, a leading manufacturer of 3D printers, is thrilled to announce the release of the open-source code for its popular Ender series, including Ender-3 S1, Ender-3 S1 Pro, Ender-3 S1 Plus, and Ender-5 S1. Along with the code release, new features have been introduced for Ender-3 S1 and Ender-3 S1 Pro, and Creality is offering special discounts to customers both on its official online store and Amazon.
Ender-3, an Ender classic, has been the first Chinese 3D printer to receive certification from the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). With the recent open-sourcing of the Ender-3 S1 series, users can now further customize and optimize their 3D printers to enhance performance and stability.
Open-source firmware and display screens allow users to modify and optimize their printers freely and helps realize new features and innovations, such as multiple languages, friendly UIs, and additional configurations. Arguably, open-source platforms foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among users, developers, and enthusiasts, driving the advancement and popularization of 3D printing technology.
Six key upgrades for Ender-3 S1
Printing speed for Ender-3 S1 has leapfrogged with typical speed increasing from 50-60mm/s to 100mm/s. As acceleration jumps from 500mm/s² to 1500mm/s², the model can reach a maximum speed of 160mm/s. With the high speed comes resonance compensation using G-sensors to control vibration and eliminate ripples, thereby achieving smoother model surfaces and finer prints.
More languages are now available. With the update, Ender-3 S1 now includes nine languages: Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian.
The update has also enabled a model image preview function. Users can now view a G-code file in the print library on the screen of an Ender-3 S1, helping them to better locate the model to print.
Another new feature is editable leveling mesh data. This is expected to help address issues in initial printing, as users will be able to edit the data for the machine to adjust accordingly – all in real time. (Note: for adjustment within ±0.5mm, the bed will be regarded as level.)
With the upgrades too, Ender-3 S1 will now allow automatic PID settings as well as dynamic curve display. PID configuration can ensure an even temperature for the printing process. A temperature fluctuation exceeding ±1°C as shown will initiate automatic PID compensation according to the ambient temperature to ensure the filament melt evenly. Users can also manually set bed and nozzle PID values according to the ambient temperature.
Additionally, there is an FDM/Laser module option upon boot-up, where users can switch between FDM/laser mode in the startup guide.
Significant speed-up and resonance compensation for Ender-3 S1 Pro
For Ender-3 S1 Pro as well, the typical print speed has leaped to 100mm/s with a maximum speed of 160mm/s, while acceleration steps up from 500mm/s² to 1500mm/s². Ender-3 S1 Pro also features resonance compensation through the ripple sensor to inhibit vibration and remove ripples, achieving high-quality prints with slick surfaces.
