Chinese 3D printer maker Createbot makes a wide variety of both consumer and industrial devices. For the last year they’ve been working to penetrate the US market. Now, several of their models are available for sale from online retailer Amazon.com.
While their broad array of offerings and options is confusing, the Createbot consumer models can be grouped into four device families, the Max, the Mid, the Mini and the recently launched Super Mini. Unfortunately, the names don’t correspond to build envelope as one might expect. Instead they seem to align with price and print quality.
The Createbot Max ranges in price from $1,410 to $1,860. Build envelope is 280 x 250 x 400 mm (11 x 9.8 x 15.7 inches) and boasts 2 micron positioning accuracy for the Z axis, 10 microns for the XY axes. Options that vary by price include single versus dual extruder, a heated print bed and LCD versus touchscreen display.
The Createbot Mid is priced between $1,190 and $1,330. Build envelope is 205 x 205 x 250 mm (8.1 x 8.1 x 9.8 inches). Variables that affect the price are the same as for the Max – single versus dual extruder, optional heated print bed and LCD versus touchscreen display.
The Createbot Mini is currently listed from $690 to $850. Build envelope is the same as the Max at 280 x 250 x 400 mm (11 x 9.8 x 15.7 inches). It comes in a variety of colors and also offers options including single or dual extruder, heated print bed and LCD versus touchscreen display.
Createbot Super Mini
The Createbot Super Mini is not yet available on Amazon. It has a smaller build envelope of 100 x 100 x 100 mm (3.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches).
Createbot has also added their own filament brand to Amazon, available in PLA and ABS in a wide variety of colors.
