Today Creality launched its Quasi-industrial grade large format 3D printer CR-M4, which sports a massive volume of 450×450×470mm, it’s a real workhorse to create big or life-size models with less post-processing. The CR-M4 allows users to print big, or batch-print more parts in one go. Without further ado, let us learn about the special features of this machine.

What’s the Features of CR-M4?

Quasi-industrial Grade Large Format

Creality CR-M4 3D Printer

CR-M4 boasts a massive build volume of 450*450*470mm. It is a real workhorse that lets you print multiple parts at once or make big models that don’t need much or any post-processing. Allow your imagination and ideas to run wild. It has wide applications, like being able to print life-size models, doing small-batch production, or using it to do prototyping even for architectural models.

Precise and Reliable Dual Y-axis Linear Rails

The Y-axis transmission is made better by two CNC-machined precision linear rails. These rails are driven by a strong and precise motor, so they move smoothly and accurately. Also, it is made out of bearing steel, and the rails withstand wear, backlashes, and heavy loads, which is way more reliable and durable than V-slot rails. 

Always a Handy Way of Printing

You will have multiple ways to print. It can be able to print via USB drive, USB-C cable, RJ45 cable, or WiFi. With a LAN connection, users can print from any PC on the LAN by using Creality Print. Users with an Internet connection can use the Creality Cloud APP or Web to print and monitor from a distance.

Start a Print Farm with Multi-printers Control

When many CR-M4 printers are online, it’s easy to start a 3D print farm for mass production, where each printer makes the same model on a single command from Creality Print or Creality Cloud Web. Since each CR-M4 printer can make 20 parts at once, a farm of 25 printers can make thousands of parts every week.

Raise the Bar of Extruder Specs

The CR-M4 has a “Sprite” all-metal direct extruder with a dual-gear design. This gives the CR-M4 a strong and even 80 N extrusion force. It’s great to extrude flexible filaments like TPU.

High-flow Hotend: An upgraded high-flow nozzle plus a 50-watt heater cartridge fully melts high-temperature filament at 300 °C for fluent feeding. With a 0.6-0.8 mm nozzle, it is swappable.

Dedicated Model Cooling: A separate 4020 fan sends strong air through a wind tunnel to cool the section that was just printed. Let the model solidify faster with less drooping or warping.

Diverse Filaments to Realize Bold Ideas

The excellent all-rounder printhead lets you print with PLA, PA (nylon), heat-resistant ABS, PLA-Wood, PLA-CF, flexible TPU, and PETG. You can create your first armor, dragon, or car model in full size. 

Genuine 25-point Auto-Leveling

Creality CR-M4 3D Printer

Fully automatic leveling with CR Touch via 25-point probing and Z offset with 0.05 mm accuracy quickly calibrates the distance between the nozzle and the build surface. 

Flexible PC Surface and Fast-heating Bed

The CR-M4 has a building platform with four levels and the PC coating makes it stick well. The spring steel sheet can be bent and is easy to remove from large models. It won’t change shape after long-term use. The two pins and magnetic base make it easy to snap on.

And the 470x470mm aluminum will reach 60°C in 160s*.

Less Wobbling with Rigid Z-axis

The Z-wobbling and sagging of the dual Z-axis curb gantry. When the two support rods are put together with the top frame, a rigid triangle is made. Each Z-axis is moved by its own motor, which makes for smooth movement.

Now, tall models are checked for quality from the bottom up.

Color Screen with Simplified UI

A 4.3-inch color screen has easy-to-use touch controls, a preview of the model, and temperature PID tuning. If nothing is done for 5 minutes, the time will run out. Even better, you can turn on Sleep Mode, which saves energy.

800W Industrial Control Power Supply

The 800W adapter can work with voltages from 100V to 240V around the world and works at over 90% efficiency with little thermal runaway. It protects against short circuits, overload, overvoltage, and overheating, and it filters out changes in voltage and electromagnetic interference. You can be sure that peak performance will be safe and stable.

Let Printing Go On Till the End

Recovering from a loss of power allows the user to pick up printing exactly where it was left off when the power went out. When it gets low, the filament runout sensor will stop the machine and tell the user to load more filament.

Designed to a High Standard

Silent mainboard – The noise within 1m is controlled at 50 decibels (only loud as indoor talking);

Cable chain – Avoid wire entanglement;

Dual spool holders – More prepared to replace filament

What’s the Price if CR-M4 3D Printer?

Creality set the market price of the CR-M4 3D printer at $1099 in the Creality store click here to see more details.


What is the estimated assembly time of the CR-M4?

The answer would rely on you. Assembly was incredibly simple. If you follow the directions, it should take no more than an hour, but you could certainly finish it in about 30 minutes.

What’s the Prusa/Cura profile for the CR-M4 3D Printer?

It is possible to utilize the Ender 3 s1 profile in Prusa Slicer by modifying the dimensions of the hotbed. Furthermore, as the Ender 3 s1 is equipped with the Sprite extruder, this profile may also be compatible with the CR10-M4, given that the latter also has an upgraded Sprite extruder. Therefore, it is recommended to try using the Ender 3 s1 profile on the CR10-M4 and make adjustments as needed.

What nozzles does the sprite hotend use?

Creality shows that the CR-M4 is used with a standard 0.4mm brass nozzle but it is also compatible with 0.6/0.8mm.

Does CR-M4 support on the Sonic Pad?

Currently no but Creality shows that it will support sonic pad until its next sonic pad release in November.
