Hey everyone! So today I've got another new printer from my sponsor Creality3D.
This is the CR-10S Pro.
I know it's quiet a mouthful.
But we're not trying to get a reward for the name here.
As a community liaison, I've been talking to the communityand they tell me which features they wantand I reported back to Creality and they have been working on it .
We've been talking back and forth, I tell them what they wantalso what are the features I want.
So I think this should be a good printer.
Let's take a look.
On the side we have a spool of filament.
Must be the toolbox.
And now I am going to remove the foam from the side.
Well, looks pretty simple.
Looks like I only need to put these two pieces together.
But let's see if they have instructions.
I think so.
Yup, there are instructions over here.
Okay, let's take a look.
Okay, so as usual there are some tools in here.
USB cable, power cable, spatula, spool holder and this one is also spool holder.
Some screws we need to attach these two pieces.
And this one looks like a really good PTFE tubing.
So let's get started.
I'm going to put these screws on each sidethe long one, and stick it up to the aluminum extrusion.
I just want to show you the stepper (motor) wire and as you can see it's pretty easyit's on the side, you just plug it in.
I just want to show you the set up of the extruder.
It has a dual drive wheel, so it grips the filament much much better.
And the whole point is this part is all metal there is no plasticEven the filament sensor is metaland it attaches to this part firmly.
So compared to the old model it is a much much nicer and more solid layout.
You know everybody has been saying that "we want auto-leveling".
And Creality listened.
This one has auto-leveling, it has an induction sensor.
But I just got this printer out of the box.
I just want to make sure everything is squared up.
So I'm going to manually level it first.
And from then on whenever you turn on the printerIf you want to use the auto level function you can do that.
But for now I just want to make sure it's square.
So let's do it.
This interface is much nicercompared to the other ones.
So we go to settings, leveling.
Okay now let's turn on the auto-leveling.
And let's keep measuring.
Okay now I'm just going to load some filament.
So when I push the filament in, the filament sensor senses itand the LED light turns on.
Okay now on the display let's hit refueland feed.
Now the filament is coming outbecause the temperature reach up to the targeted temperature.
and it's more like a assisted filament change.
Because usually I have to heat it up and then to do this.
But when I just hit refuel, the temperature goes up at the same time.
So I have this microSD card here, we are going to try a test print.
But I got to warn you first.
There is always this bugit can't read the GCODE file outside of the root.
The test file is in the directories.
So you have to pop this in your computerand you have to drag the test file into the root.
So that you can print it, but I think they will upgrade it in the next firmware.
Now let's hit print.
Okay that looks nice.
A few artifacts but I can already see which settings needs to be tweaked.
Overall impressive for a first print.
Here's a 3D body scan I had made.
I accidentally broke the hand while I was removing the support.
It is a delicate, very tricky print.
But it is not the printer's fault, it was just me being clumsy.
The CR-10s pro really handled it well.
Again some artifacts on the side, but that's easily dealt with in the slicer.
I don't think that's a hardware problem.
If you would like your own little 3D statue of me just like this oneyou can buy one from my Shapeways store, the link is in the description box.
Ok once again - the usual disclaimer, Creality is my sponsor.
That being said they have sent me test printers that I would not show on my channel.
If you see it here that means I stand by it and think it's a good printer for the average consumer.
The CR-10S pro gets a thumbs up from me.
The issue is price.
If you want a basic printerdon't have much money but have lots of time to assembleand learn how to use it I still recommend the Ender-3.
if you want a larger printer - again with a learning curve, I recommend the CR-10s.
But if you want a better out-of-the-box printing experiencemore reliable, easier to use, less fiddly, the CR-10s Pro is absolutely your best bet.
It definitely has the best quality printsand the least numbers of things to go wrong.
It's the right printer if you're willing to pay a bit more for print quality and reliability.
I'll put the buy link in the description box.
Lastly, as most of you know Youtube isn't very kind to creators these days.
I don't make much off of ads and that affects how many videos a month I can post.
Those of you who can afford it, your sponsorship really helps.
And as you can see in my videos I work hard and don't spend it on foolish things.
Sponsors also get to see my new videos seven to ten days before everyone else and without ads.
If you can't afford to sponsor, that's totally ok.
Instead please subscribe, repost my videos on social media and tell your friends.
The more followers I have, the easier it is to get corporate sponsors.
That's it for today.
I hope you like this video.
Remember if I can do it anyone can do it.
I'll see you all next time.
