Technology continues to be a revolving door of groundbreaking innovation and creativity. There’s no better proof of that than 3D printing. As we move along, manufacturers continue to make strides toward the best printer. Creatbot is one such company with several printers, but what are the three key differences between Creatbot models?
The Size & Weight
The most discernible difference between the various Creatbot models is their size. The F160 is the smallest version, with a length and width of 160 mm and a height of 200 m. The largest Creatbot 3D printer is the heavy-duty, large-scale professional F1000, nearly 5 1/2 times bigger than the F160 at 1000 mm across length, width, and size.
As you’d expect with the massive size difference, the weight also varies. The massive Creatbot F1000 comes in at 640 kg, translating to over 1,400 pounds. On the other hand, some could lift the F160 by themselves, as it checks in at 25 kg (55 lbs). The other five printers in the Creatbot lineup fall somewhere in the middle, with the D600 Pro weighing in as the second heaviest at 180 kg (400 lbs), while next in line for the lightest is the DX/DX+ is roughly 40 kg (88 lbs).
The CreatBot F1000 streamlines the process of industrial 3D printing for great products and prototypes. For very large, eye-catching prints, it incorporates several cutting-edge technologies. This is your best option if you need a large-scale industrial 3D printer for use with prototypes or engineering materials.
Now that you understand the printers’ measurements, let’s discuss the most important aspect of deciding on a printer—performance. The only printer with a single nozzle in Creatbot’s arsenal is the F160. Although it lacks double nozzles, it doesn’t slow down the F160 since it performs at 60 mm/s. Every Creatbot printer has a touchscreen of 4.3" except the F1000. The F1000’s touchscreen is over double in size at 9.7", so it’s nice to know the size difference helps in other areas.
Other special features exclusive to Creatbot’s F1000, D600 Pro, and Peek-300 include an air filtration system, an emergency stop, and automatic bed leveling. The F430 also has an air filtration system but lacks the emergency stop function.
The PEEK-300 reigns supreme as the most cutting-edge, high-performance 3D printer ever produced in the industrial and medical fields. For high-performance polymers and composites, it represents a paradigm shift in the definition of a high-performance 3D printer.
As innovative as Creatbot was for the 3D printing industry, they always strived to do more. The DX and DE models are still highly-effective 3D printers; however, some key features are missing as they developed newer printers. The DX and DE do not have the following features, whereas most of Creatbot’s printers come with them equipped:
- Hot air system
- Air filtration
- Emergency stop
- Filaments drying
- Direct drive extruder
- Full enclosure
- Automatic bed leveling
If you want a small upgrade over the DX and DE versions, the F430 is your best bet. It’s the top-of-the-line desktop 3D printer from CreatBot, capable of printing in various materials. This tool covers everything from ideation to prototyping to full-scale manufacture of high-performance materials. It’s reasonably priced and dependable for businesses of all sizes.
The three key differences between Creatbot models do not necessarily mean one is better than the other, considering the perfect match is about your specific needs. If you want something small, efficient, and extraordinary, the Creatbot F160 3D printer from 3D Printers Depot will please you. 3D Printers Depot will also price-match anything we sell, so let us know, and we’ll accommodate you!
