The affordable consumer-grade machine is designed to combine ease of use with accessibility, providing families, artists, and educational institutions with a cost-effective and safe method of printing small-scale objects. Suitable for home use, the printer can be used to fabricate consumer goods, toys, artistic pieces, and educational models for subjects such as mathematics, science, and history.
Characterized by its simple, enclosed form factor, the Sermoon V1 features a black and grey color scheme that mimics those of common home appliances. As such, Creality has aptly nicknamed its new system the Artistic Home Appliance.
Creality’s desktop 3D printing stronghold
Based in Shenzhen and founded in 2014, Creality has proven itself to be a key player in the desktop 3D printing space. The company’s ever-growing product portfolio includes a wide variety of consumer-grade FDM 3D printing systems like the CR-6 SE, CR-30, and Ender-7.
More recently, the firm has also begun offering a new series of fully-enclosed machines, covering both the consumer and professional sectors. The consumer line is designed to combine safety, ease of use, accessibility, simplified maintenance, and beginner-friendly workflows. On the other hand, the higher-performance machines support engineering filaments, provide high stability and accuracy, and are aimed at educational institutions and design and engineering enterprises.
The Sermoon V1
The Sermoon V1 features a compact build volume of 175 x 175 x 165mm and Creality’s own self-developed Sprite dual-gear direct extruder. According to the firm, the extruder is 30% lighter than competing systems and boasts a surprisingly high nozzle temperature of 250℃ to enable printing with PLA, ABS, TPU, and PETG. This is aided by the fully-enclosed frame, which measures just 400 x 380 x 430mm.
Since the system is designed for use in the home, Creality has doubled down on the ease of use and comfort aspects here. The Sermoon V1 comes fully assembled, doesn’t require any leveling, and includes everything a user needs to begin 3D printing. The machine is also equipped with a new ultra-quiet motherboard and fan combination, emitting less than 45dB of sound when printing.
Creality has made sure to include a number of quality-of-life features too. The Sermoon V1 can connect to the Creality Cloud App via Wi-Fi, enabling users to control their builds remotely. The app can also be used to find, slice, and share 3D models with just a single click, streamlining the print preparation workflow for novices. The system is lined with LED lighting to allow for night-time printing.
Finally, machine safety is paramount when it comes to family use, so the Sermoon V1 boasts 18 international safety certifications, including CE, FCC, PSE, UKCA, and KC.
