Creality Launches Ender-5 S1, Flagship of the Year Reinventing Desktop 3d Printer Experience
Featuring up to 250mm/s printing speed and 300°C high temperature, Creality’s latest flagship Ender-5 S1 is a versatile and durable FDM printer unlocking creativities for 3d printing enthusiasts and small to middle-scale businesses.
Shenzhen, China, November 3, 2022 – Creality, a global pioneer in 3d printing, announces today the launch of the Ender-5 S1, the latest flagship of the best-seller Ender series at the price of $559. Featuring the upgraded motion system for 2000mm/s² acceleration and up to 250mm/s printing speed, the Ender-5 S1 is designed to be not just another “Ender”, but a flagship that integrates and reinvents the essence of this popular series.
“As a user-centric company, Creality strives to bring affordable 3d printers combining market-leading technologies and stable and high-level performance to 3d printing beginners and professionals around the world,” says Ao Danjun, CEO of Creality. “As the latest addition to our ever-popular Ender series, the Ender-5 S1 aims to be a leader in the desktop-grade 3d printer market and empowers users to turn their dreams into realities.”
Ender-5 S1 New Features
High speed with professional-grade stability
Following the success of its predecessors of the Ender-5 series, the Ender-5 S1 continuously goes in an all-metal cube frame with the classic Cartesian structure that can be assembled in only 10 minutes, while the stability is further enhanced by two Z-axis 12mm Linear Shafts and two profile gussets. Unlike single gantry printers, each X/Y/Z axis of the Ender-5 S1 is driven by a powerful high-precision stepper motor, providing robust productivity. A steel transmission shaft was featured to connect and sync the two Y-axis belts, significantly increasing the durability and precision without compensating for the print speed.
Test results from Creality Lab show that printing a Benchy takes only 54 minutes at the maximum speed, saving 50% of the time compared to printing at 50 mm/s. The Ender-5 S1 also achieved a 100% success rate for 1000-hour printing at 250mm/s high speed and 0.2mm layer height, making it a reliable partner of studios, 3dprinting farms, and other small to middle-scale businesses seeking to build up their production fleet.
More creativities with 300°C high-temp printing
The Ender-5 S1 is the first to feature high-temperature printing in the Ender-5 series, and it is made possible by Creality’s self-developed all-metal “Sprite” direct extruder, while Bowden ones still dominate the cube frame FDM 3d printer market. The “Sprite” features dual gears of 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.
When the filament feeds in, it will first go through the Titanium alloy heat break with a low thermal conductivity that can sufficiently prevent heat creep. Then the corrugated heatsink and silent axial flow fan ensure the filament is cooled before reaching the hot zone.
There is also a major upgrade to the melting chamber. The 50mm³ melting chambers of the Ender-5 S1 surrounded by a large 4000mm³ heater block can fully melt the filament for smooth feeding. Test from Creality Lab proves that the Ender-5 S1 is capable of 1000 hours of clog-free feeding.
Apart from regular filaments like TPU, a whole new world opens for 3d printing enthusiasts as a variety of heat-resistant engineering plastic filaments are brought into the game including ABS, PC, ASA, and HIPS. For users pursuing a better high-temp printing experience, an acrylic enclosure specifically designed for the Ender-5 S1 is available as optional for keeping the heat of the chamber.
Creality has recently partnered with Forward AM, a brand of the chemical giant BASF, to deliver high-end co-branded filaments including HP-ULTRA PLA and ABS. The HP-ULTRA filaments are pre-configured on the Ender-5 S1, offering a premium printing experience for professional users.
In addition to the upgraded “Sprite” extruder, the Ender-5 S1 is equipped with extra cooling technology to deliver premium performance. A pair of “Urus” air ducts mounted alongside the nozzle channels the strong wind generated by a large 5015 fan to directly cool the freshly printed section. The deposited hot material will harden and bond up immediately, thus avoiding drooping or warping caused by overheating. The additional cooling method will improve print quality for overhangs, bridges, and other detailed objects. With the magnetic PC spring steel sheet that offers better adhesion of the printed models, users can also remove the model easily with a slight bend after printing.
Quick, easy, and intuitive workflow
Print bed leveling is a crucial part of the whole printing process. Creality’s CR Touch 16-point auto-leveling system is installed on the Ender-5 S1 by default, offering a hassle-free bed-leveling experience. For the perfect first layer, users are recommended to adjust the bed first by the 0.01mm Z-axis offset and then the five-point auxiliary leveling before going through the CR Touch leveling method.
All the operations above can be done through the responsive 4.3-inch touchscreen featuring a wide viewing angle and a simplified UI. A temperature PID tuning function is also added for accurate and steady temperature control.
Safety, safety, and safety
For the first time, the secure aviation connector is applied in the Ender series, which debuts on the Ender-5 S1 for safe and stable power and data transmission. The 350W power adapter is also encased in the printer’s base for a safer user experience. There will be no more loose wires and cables on the printer as well, all coated with the nylon wire harness sleeve for safety and tidiness.
User-friendly features and add-ons
In addition to printing by inserting an SD card and connecting to the PC via USB cable, remote control via WiFi and time-lapse filming are also possible by connecting to the optional accessory Creality WiFi Box 2.0 + Camera Kit that can be purchased separately.
Price and availability
The Ender-5 S1 is available on November 3, 10 a.m. EDT at Creality Official Store for $559. The first 100 purchasers will enjoy a 16% early-bird discount at the price of $469 and the first 50 will receive a 1kg roll of random-color Creality CR series filament as a complimentary.
