Description of CREALITY K1 MAX 3d printer :
K1 Max 3D PRINTER from Creality presents itself as a powerful FDM 3D printer with striking aesthetics, boasting an impressive large square build volume of 300 x 300 x 300 mm. The sturdy design ensures that this high-speed FDM giant can achieve remarkable print speeds without compromising print quality.
Once delivered, the K1 Max arrives fully assembled and calibrated, supported by a pre-installed quick start guide that allows you to commence printing right away.
Despite its substantial build volume, the K1 Max exhibits an efficient utilization of space, maintaining a compact device size. This advantageous feature makes it ideal for prototyping and crafting design samples.
Crafted from a custom-made die-cast aluminium alloy and CNC-milled, the sturdy unibody frame ensures optimal precision and print stability even during high-speed operations.
The robust CoreXY structure and lightweight printhead further contribute to its smooth performance and high-speed capabilities. Reduced inertia and vibrations translate to enhanced overall stability.
The K1 Max employs manual fully automatic bed levelling and calibration, utilizing strain sensors on the heated bed and an AI-LiDAR scanner to ensure precise levelling. This intelligent combination automatically compensates for unevenness on the build plate, showcasing the printer’s ingenuity.
KI camera for print monitoring
Additionally, the AI-LiDAR scanner diligently monitors the first layer, independently adjusting the flow quantity for optimum results. The K1 Max is equipped to detect and promptly address any printing errors or foreign objects within the build space.
Monitoring the printing process in real-time, the integrated AI camera continuously watches for printing errors, foreign objects, and loose parts, ensuring seamless operations and immediate user alerts.
With network connectivity via WLAN or LAN, users can conveniently track print progress via PC or smartphone. For enhanced efficiency, multiple K1 Max printers can be connected online for batch production and optimization of prints.
The K1 Max’s precisely guided z-axis ensures fine textures without Z-wobbling, delivering exceptional print quality without layer offsets.
Flow calibration through LiDAR monitoring guarantees the perfect flow for each filament, minimizing extrusion issues and eliminating the hassle of material inconsistencies.
Adding to its appeal, the K1 Max features a built-in air purifier that filters unpleasant odours and fine particles during the printing process.
Among other notable features, the 4.3-inch touchscreen, AI Camera, AI LiDAR, Power Loss Recovery, Filament Runout Sensor, Input Shaping, Lightning Kit, and Sleep Mode showcase the K1 Max’s impressive capabilities.
Moreover, it offers compatibility with various slicer software, including Creality Print, Cura, Simplify3D, and PrusaSlicer, enhancing the user’s flexibility and control over the printing process.
