What XL middle range printer would you recommend (not CreatBot please)?

Post by RigbyMordecai »

Dear community,

I'm new here and happy to discove the forum!

I have a Prusa Mk2 amateur printer with quite good results, but I'd need a bigger print volume to develop some design projects.

I tried to get a sample of a big item (58x15x15) by Creatbot 60x60x60 and the result was really disapppointing in terms of quality. Very poor finishing and layering, scaring somehow as the test was done by their specialists, so some brand I can immediately forget. For a 6000$+ machine I had worse quality than in my Prusa Mk2 (600$) printer. Not talking about the very bad customer care service. For sure I will never buy a product there.

I then discovered the new CraftBot Flow series with this amazing size print volume:
42,5 x 25 x 50 cm

Does anybody have information about those printers? A friend of mine was surprised the components of those printers are somehow cheap and not innovative and was warning me about paying so much for not too innovative or expensive parts in the machines. On the other hand I see that osme useful functions are in the FLow series, as remote control, future enclosure, etc.

I also think Prusa will launch a 40x40x40 which could be interesting...

Or the existing Creality Ender 5 Plus?

It would be amazing to find a reliable machine that can print flexible, reinforced filaments, soluble, and also that could get an enclosure to filter toxic vapors, and why not a silent one

Thank you for any piece of advise
