Review On CR-10 SMART

Someone mentioned that the day Creality stops coming out with new printers, the day will be the end of the world. So again, Creality released a super cool FDM printer during the 7th-anniversary celebration. It is called CR-10 Smart.


How smart this printer will be?

Let’s have a look!

New Appearance

Super Sports and Tech Sense Design

Creality FDM 3D printers usually are old-school in appearance. But the CR-Smart looks very cool and high-tech. For example, the design of the plastic cover for the hot-end and the storage boxes are similar to the diamond cut shape, which is very fashionable.

Creality put a plastic cover on the extruder, it not only upgraded the user experience but also makes the printer cleaner as you will never see the filament scraps on extruder gear.

The same as CR-6SE, the front flat design for the gantry looks simple and strong.

4.3-Inch Large LCD Touch Screen

The 4.3-inch full-view LCD touch screen with high definition is very sensitive and clear to allow users to operate comfortably. With the new upgraded interface, there are multi-language for switching, including English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, etc, which is very friendly to use.

Dual Z Axis and Diagonal Support Bars

It is well known that the triangle is a stable shape. These two supporting pillars which hold the gantry will bring users a reliable feeling and more stability for printing.

New Upgrades

Auto Bed Leveling Pre-installed

Are you struggling with bed leveling or BL Touch installation and firmware flashing? CR-10 Smart is made for you! With V2.0 upgraded automatic bed leveling system, you just need to touch the “level” option on display, the printer can auto-leveling itself without additional BL Touch kits.

Automatic Sleep Motion and Auto Shutdown

One of the upgrades is the automatic sleep and shutdown motion which will turn off the power automatically after 30 minutes of usage or right after completing the prints. As a result, users don’t need to worry about turning off the power when using the printer. This upgrade feature provides a safer environment for using a 3D printer, and it can save more energy and power.

Ultra Silent Design

Creality designers have made the most silent driver on this machine. The self-developed 32-bits mute mainboard provides excellent muting performance. Creality lab proves that the printing noise of this machine is lower than 45 decibels, which is reduced by 25% compared to other 3D printers. Not only the mainboard, the power supply, and the fan are also low-noise customized. Thus, you can say bye to printing noise and totally enjoy silent printing.

WIFI box Per-inserted

CR-10 Smart is the first Creality 3D printer equipped with a built-in wifi function that allows users to remote control the printer anytime and anywhere after setting up the connection between the phone and the Wifi Box. Creality integrates the wifi box into the machine, making it easy for every user to set up the remote control system. Similar to setting up Creality Wifi Box, the whole setup and remote control process is done by using the Creality Cloud App. If you don’t know Creality Wifi Box: Click here.

Using Experience

Now, I would like to share a little about the experience of assembling the printer and using the new wifi function. Super easy to assemble.

Easy to Assembly

CR-10 Samrt Easy to assembly

There are only 6 parts in the box, it includes the gantry, diagonal bars, LCD screen, filament holder, machine main body case, and build plate. The X-axis-related parts, like hot-end components, extruder components are already assembled on the gantry together, so it will only take you 8 mins to assemble even you are a new 3D printer user. At the same time, the auto bed leveling mechanism simplifies the bed leveling process, so customers don’t need to level it frequently.

If you have experience in assembling other ender seris printers, then come to the challenge of assembling CR-Smart in 5 minutes.

Good Usage of Wifi Function

It is so cool that you can control your printer without an additional Wifi box or OctoPrint because Creality has already pre-inserted the Wifi in. That means you can also flash the updated firmware online.

After downloading the Creality Cloud App, you just need to scan the QR code on the machine and follow the steps on the app to connect the printer. The connection is stabler compared to the connection on the Creality WIFI box. You can find a model of Benchy boat on the Creality Cloud app, did the slicing setting, and print it remotely from the printer. The printing page will show the shape of the print part, current printing time, layer, and remaining time. You can also remotely adjust the nozzle and bed temperatures.
