Hey there, 3D printing enthusiasts and professionals! We at Creality are thrilled to announce the latest addition to our renowned K1 series: the Creality K1C 3D Printer. Since the launch of our K1 series in early 2023, your overwhelming response has fueled our passion for innovation. Now, we’re back with the K1C, a prosumer machine that’s a true champion of speed and skills.

A New Level of Printing Precision and Power

At the heart of the K1C lies our revolutionary all-metal extruder kit. This powerhouse guarantees up to 1000 hours of clog-free extrusion, ensuring your prints are not only precise but also consistently reliable.

The extruder’s design features a bolster spring and a ball plunger, providing an unyielding grip on the filament, eliminating any slack. This robust mechanism ensures that your prints are flawless, every time.

Our innovative “Unicorn” nozzle, seamlessly integrated with a heat break, is a game-changer. It blocks heat creep effectively and can be swapped effortlessly with just one hand.

Moreover, the nozzle’s hardened steel tip makes it adept at handling carbon fiber filled filaments like PLA-CF and PETG-CF. These materials are crucial in industrial printing for their exceptional mechanical strength and dimensional stability, making the K1C as capable as some professional-grade 3D printers.

State-of-the-Art Cooling for Impeccable Prints

We’ve elevated the cooling system of the K1C beyond the standards set by its predecessor. The hotend and part cooling fans on the printhead are now dynamically balanced, significantly reducing the likelihood of wobble.

This enhancement is crucial in minimizing common printing issues such as ringing or ghosting, ensuring that your prints are not just fast, but also of the highest quality.

Plug, Play, and Print with Ease

Embracing the K1C is as effortless as using a new smartphone. This printer comes pre-assembled for immediate use. From the moment you power it on, you’re guided through a seamless startup process, culminating in an auto-calibration system that takes care of leveling and other setup nuances. Say goodbye to the frustrating paper tests of the past.

Smart and Secure AI-Powered Monitoring

The K1C isn’t just a printer; it’s a vigilant companion. Equipped with an AI camera, it watches over your printing process, actively alerting you to any anomalies. This feature isn’t just about troubleshooting; it’s also perfect for real-time monitoring and creating stunning time-lapse videos of your creations coming to life.

Quiet Operation, Clean Air

Silent Mode and Air Filtration

Our commitment to your comfort and safety is unwavering. The K1C’s silent mode ensures that the printer operates at a whisper-quiet level, comparable to the gentle turning of book pages.

Simultaneously, the built-in active carbon filter works tirelessly to purify the air from compounds and particles emanating from molten filaments. This means you can work, live, and create alongside your K1C without any concerns, day or night.

Intuitive Features for an Unmatched Printing Experience

The K1C is like a considerate friend, unobtrusive yet always there when you need it. In batch printing, if one print fails, you can simply exclude it from the batch, allowing the rest to continue seamlessly. This feature ensures that your productivity is never compromised.

In addition, the printer’s stability and security are bolstered by the damper hinge and pre-installed damping pads, providing peace of mind as you focus on your creative endeavors.

An Open-Source Ecosystem for Unlimited Creativity

The K1C is more than a printer; it’s a portal to endless possibilities. With open-source hardware and software, you have the freedom to tailor your printing experience to your exact needs. The Creality OS, based on Klipper, opens up a world of advanced functions like linear advance, inviting you to customize and enhance your printing processes.

The Creality Print slicer comes packed with features such as smart cooling, optimal retraction, and slim tree supports. It even allows you to efficiently manage a print farm over LAN. And with Creality Cloud, you gain access to a vast array of free 3D models and enjoy the convenience of cloud printing.
