Creality, known for its quality desktop 3D printers and high market share in the 3D printing industry, launched on November 9, 2020 an innovative new 3D printer, the 3DPrintMill.

The 3DPrintMill is a great, affordable option for a belt-based 3D printer. Similar belt-based printers currently on the market are designed for industrial purpose and can cost around €10,000.

The 3DPrintMill will be affordable at roughly one-tenth the price of competitive models. In addition, you can save up to 50% if you purchase it via Kickstarter. It will not be available elsewhere until Creality’s Kickstarter campaign has fulfilled all of its backers’ orders.

Features of the 3DPrintMill:

  • 45° angled hot-end which allows for longer prints. Maximum build length is no longer a barrier, due to the use of a built-in conveyor belt. The hot-end is also adjustable to 15°, 25° and 35° through the use of accessories.
  • Conveyor belt which will synergize with the 45° angled hot-end to deliver seemingly endless printing. The printed model will eventually roll off the belt. Users can leave the printer unattended until it finishes printing. All the prints can be retrieved from the collection area at the end.
  • 32-bit silent motherboard to create a desirable printing experience. Users will no longer need to find an alternative way to eliminate the noise of the motor.
  • Filament runout sensor. It is an essential component for endless or multiple identical prints. It will pause the print if the machine runs out of filament or if there is filament breakage to avoid possible print failure.
  • Branded 350-watt power supply capable of providing sufficient energy to the heat bed. The heated bed is located at the back portion of the belt near the hot-end. The model will cool down as it slowly moves away from the heated area and then detaches from the belt to the collection area.

The unique triangular structure of the 3DPrintMill results in strength and superb rigidity that are perfectly balanced. The moving belt enables the possibility of either mass production of an identical item or prints that would usually be out of the boundary of a typical build plate.

The triangular framework of 3DPrintMill is built with a Core-XY structure that results in precision, speed, and stability.

Creality will provide a special version of its slicer, required to accommodate the unique structure of this printer. It allows users to select numbers of copies for a single model or utilize the infinite Z axis to create a long print.

Creality is able to launch this product at such an affordable price for many reasons reasons: As both a manufacturer and distributor, there is no middleman. Creality’s products are popularized by word of mouth. And because Creality, to mark its sixth anniversary, is grateful to all of its users, and wants to repay them with this innovative product at an extremely affordable price.

Flash sale price and early bird price are quite favorable.

Remember to follow the Kickstarter page for any updates.
