K1 – King of Speed
K1, with its stunning speed, will kindle people’s zeal for 3D printing. A fast speed cuts printing time and raises efficiency.It uses less energy for the same output, thus more eco-friendly. Most importantly, it focuses on the pure joy of creation.
Fast, in an Epic Way
Crazy 600mm/s. K1 is 12 times faster than a regular FDM 3D printer. Sit tight for the thrill of breath-taking speed.
Always Print at Full Speed
With 20000mm/s² acceleration, K1 ramps up to 600mm/s in only 0.03s, delivering full speed in 90% of the printing time.
Nimble Setup for Speed
K1 combines the nimble Core XY with a 190g lightweight printhead for less motion inertia. Agile and swift.
32mm³/s Flow in Full Blast
New ceramic heater, encircling the entire hotend. It heats to 200℃ in 40s and melts the filament instantly. Dual-gear direct extruder, delivering 50N strong extrusion force. Hotend with a titanium alloy heatbreak and a copper alloy nozzle, working with flying colors in up to 300℃.
Model Cooling by Dual Fans
A large fan on the printhead with air ducts cools the model directly. An 18W auxiliary fan in the build chamber enhances the cooling effect, too.
The model hardens before any stringing and warping could happen. It allows support-free bridges and overhangs.
Creality Print 4.3 with Speed Genes
The latest self-developed slicer Creality Print 4.3 includes rich presets, and streamlines the slicing process into 3 simple stages. Even better, it bolsters high-speed printing with variable line width, arc path, and so on.
Speedy Creality OS and Hardware
K1 adopts the smart Creality OS. It features a straightforward UI, and syncs data and commands with PC, phone, Cloud, and add-on modules. The snappy dual-core 1.2GHz CPU powers high-speed printing with ease. The 8G ROM stores up to 400 model files and enables quick writing and reading.
- Quick-heating Heatbed: The aluminum alloy heatbed spreads heat uniformly and quickly. It reaches 60°C in only 180s.
- Flexible Build Plate: Sticky and heat-resistant, it works well with a wide range of filaments. The finely frosted surface makes the model bottom fine and smooth. Bendable for quick print removal.
- Self-test with One Tap: Give a tap, and K1 will self-test the extruder, heatbed, camera (optional), fan, levelling, etc. Any abnormality detected will prompt on the display. So, users can proceed confidently without hitch.
- Hands-free Auto Leveling: An array of strain sensors are embedded in the heatbed to generate an accurate leveling mesh. The whole process happens on its own after the printing starts. You don’t need to lift a finger or pay any attention.
Connected and Carefree Control
K1 can print via USB drive or WiFi. With a network connection, K1 can be controlled or monitored* remotely from Creality Print or Creality Cloud APP/WEB. Cluster control is also allowed when many K1 printers are online. Once the printing is complete or abnormal, a notice will be sent to your phone or PC. No more close watch.
Stand Firmly to the Speed Challenge
The unibody die-cast aluminum alloy frame of K1 is CNC machined to be precise and rigid. It enables steady printing at high speed. And the print quality is excellent the whole time.
No Ringing at High Speed
A G-sensor in the printhead measures the resonance frequencies of high-speed printing, and auto-tune the printer to mitigate it. No more ghosting or ringing on the print.
Delicate Texture without Z-banding
The upgraded Z-axis with more accurate positioning reduces Z-banding effectively. The texture has never been so subtle.
