Creality, the global pioneer in 3D printing, released its new CR-M4 FDM 3D printer, priced from $1099. Featuring a 450x450x470mm huge build volume, dual Y-axis linear rails, and a handy way of printing, the CR-M4 is a product designed for 3D print farm owners and individual prosumers to print large-scale models in one run.
Massive Build Volume With Professional-Grade Stability
The CR-M4, a 3D printing beast, boasts a massive build volume of 450x450x470mm. It’s a real workhorse for creating big models with less or no post-processing, or batch-printing parts in one go. It’s time for users to max out creativity and let thoughts run wild.
Many users worry about the quality of large models. When printing large models, quality is easily affected because of wobbling. The CR-M4 solves it effectively.
With dual Z-axis and two support rods, CR-M4 forms a rigid triangle to stabilize the top frame. The dual Z-axis curbs gantry sagging and Z-wobbling, and each Z-axis is driven by a standalone motor for neat movement. All of these will ensure the quality of tall models from bottom to top.
Precise and Reliable Dual Y-Axis Linear Rails
In addition to the rigid triangle frame, the CR-M4 is also equipped with dual Y-axis linear rails to further improve the quality of models.
The dual Y-axis linear rails are made from high-quality bearing steel and manufactured by CNC technology, thus significantly improving the accuracy of Y-axis motion and ability to withstand heavy loads and long-term war.
They are driven by powerful high-precision stepper motors, providing more precise and smooth motion. Test results from the Creality Lab show that the stepper motor can print constantly and steadily for 720 hours (30 days).
Start a Print Farm With Multi-Printer Control
To provide a better printing experience, the CR-M4 is able to print via USB drive, USB-C cable, RJ45 cable, and WiFi. With a LAN connection, users can print from any PC on the LAN by using Creality Print. Through access to the Internet, users can print and monitor remotely from the Creality Cloud APP or Web.
When multiple CR-M4 printers are connected to the Internet, it is easy to start a 3D print farm for mass production. The printers produce the same model on a single command from Creality Print or Creality Cloud Web. Given that each CR-M4 can print 20 parts in one go, a farm of 25 printers will crank out thousands of parts each week.
More Creativity With 300°C High-Temp Printing
The CR-M4’s high-temp printing is made possible by Creality’s self-developed all-metal “Sprite” direct extruder. The “Sprite” features dual gears with a 1:3.5 gear ratio, delivering a powerful and uniform 80N extrusion force and is particularly capable when printing with flexible filaments like TPU.
With an upgraded nozzle and 50W heater cartridge, the high-flow hot end can fully melt high-temp filaments at 300°C for fluent feeding. Users can swap the standard 0.4mm nozzle with a 0.6mm or 0.8mm nozzle for their needs.
The superb all-rounder printhead gives users the liberty to print with PLA, PA (nylon), heat-resistant ABS, PLA-Wood, PLA-CF, flexible TPU, and PETG. When it starts to print, a standalone 4020 fan channels strong wind to cool the freshly printed section, letting the model solidify faster with less drooping or warping.
High-Performance Build Platform With 25-Point Auto-Leveling
The CR-M4 has fully automatic leveling with CR Touch by probing 25 points, and Z offset at 0.05mm accuracy to quickly calibrate the distance between the nozzle and the build surface, enabling users to easily print high-quality first layer.
CR-M4 features a 4-layered build platform. The PC coating provides strong adhesion. The bendable spring steel sheet makes it easy to remove large models and will not deform after long-term use.
The magnetic base and two pins allow quick snap-on. The test result from Creality Lab shows that the 470x470mm aluminum alloy heatbed will heat up to 60°C within 160 seconds.
Safe, Steady, and Efficient
The CR-M4 is equipped with an 800W industrial control power supply to ensure safe and steady printing. The power supply is adaptive to 100V-240V worldwide, delivering next-level efficiency with little thermal runaway. It can filter voltage fluctuations and electromagnetic interference, and prevent the printer from short-circuiting, overloading, overvoltage and overheating.
A 4.3-inch color screen on the CR-M4 features simple and responsive touch control, supporting model preview and temperature PID tuning. It will time out after five minutes of no further activity. Even better, users can enable the energy-saving Sleep Mode.
With a silent mainboard, the noise from CR-M4 within 1m distance is controlled at 50 decibels, equivalent to the sound of indoor talking. To avoid wire entanglement, CR-M4 has a cable chain for filaments. And there are dual spool holders for users to prepare filaments easier.
