On April 9th, Creality announced the launch of a new FFF 3D printer with featuring a cubic architecture, Ender-6, coinciding with the company’s sixth anniversary celebration. With a stable core-XY structure and enhanced hardware, the Ender-6 performs printing speeds that are three times higher to deliver finely detailed, large-scale prints.
“We are quite excited to release new products at our sixth anniversary celebration, including the Ender-6, 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 life, and 3D printers are rapidly changing and upgrading, which puts forward more new requirements for Creality to make new products with better performance. The Ender-6 is here to meet the challenge.”
The highlights of the Ender-6 include stable core-XY structure, optional enclosed chamber, a silent motherboard developed in-house, and more. The Ender-6 is the most capable 3D printer in the Ender series, both in terms of precision and speed.
Ender-6 Multiplies the Printing Speed by Three Times, No way!
The Ender-6 utilizes a core-XY motion system in its cube-shaped architecture. Different from motion systems on Delta and Cartesian 3D printers, the core-XY mechanism has a bottom-to-top moveable print bed, and utilizes two stepper motors to drive the motion in the X- and Y-axis. The print head moves in specific directions depending on which way the stepper motor is spinning, greatly reducing vibrations, as well as the weight the printer has to bear during motion. In this way, printing moves at a higher speed without sacrificing quality.
Based on numerous tests, the Ender-6 can reach print speeds up to 150mm/s, which is three times faster than other Ender series printers and many of its competitors.
Ender-6 Keeps Precision Record at ±0.1mm
“The Ender-6 is such a workhorse that it is capable of printing at higher speeds without sacrificing printing precision. We are noticing that users are pursuing larger print sizes, higher precision, multicolor or multi-material prints and more. We were thinking about integrating some advantages into a single product to achieve the best monetary value, so the Ender-6 was born,” said George Deng, Creality Senior Product Engineer.
The Ender-6 incorporates a Bowden extruder, which ensures stable filament transmission through a PTFE tube to the nozzle. As the stepper motor is fixed, the total weight of the hot-end is so light that it won’t result in overshooting or vibrations via motion from the print head. In this way, the Ender-6 significantly reduces imperfections in the print.
Moreover, the Ender-6 is guaranteed with Creality’s self-developed silent motherboard. The German-imported TMC motion controller guarantees precise motion control and premium printing experience in silence. Based on data from the Creality Research Institute, the Ender-6 keeps its precision records at ±0.1mm while multiplying the print speed by three times.
Outstanding in Appearance and More
The Ender-6 is revamped with a new look: an integrated all-metal chamber body and strong Creality-blue corner connectors, making the machine quite beautiful.
Furthermore, Creality has provided another option for users who have requirements in printing a wider range of filaments. The Ender-6 will be available in two versions: One with an open architecture and the other with acrylic plates creating an enclosed structure. With acrylic plates added on the four sides of the printer, the Ender-6 is better at preserving the temperature within the print area, which will extend filament choices from PLA to ABS, TPU, and more. Meanwhile, the transparent plates still allow real-time monitoring of 3D printing process from 360° around.
The carborundum glass platform as its hot-bed evokes a sense of elegance with this machine. More importantly, the superior heat resistance and thermal conductivity of the hotbed greatly improves heating efficiency and bed adhesion, which results in exact smoothness, even on the first layer of the prints.
The 4.3in HD color touch screen looks neat and exquisite on the Ender-6. Moreover, the new interface provides users with simple and intuitive navigation in multiple languages. Users can get all of the information needed, including print process, function overview, parameter settings, and more.
In a Word
The Ender-6 has become such a powerful workhorse in the Ender series as it has inherited strengths from its predecessors and achieved new breakthroughs. It shall be the utmost choice for professionals, hobbyists, beginners, and everyone else to enjoy premium quality 3D printing right out of box. The Ender-6 is already available for all users to order.
