The Chinese brand known as Creality has been in the 3D printing industry for a few years. We can even say it has been there since this technology became popular. But Creality could reach its peak when released the Creality CR-10 3D printer. However, after that, the company came in with a few other amazing models, including the CR-X with dual extrusion capabilities and the Creality CR-20. As the name suggests, the latter comes as the enhanced version of the original model. And now it’s offered at $379.99 after using the coupon (code: 72HCR20). Thus, it continues to be one of the most affordable 3D printers that sport many useful features.

Actually, this is the improved variant of another Creality 3D printer dubbed as the Ender 3. The company has improved the components and added new features to the Creality CR-20. Like its predecessor, this 3D printer integrates the aluminum rail-based modular design with a build volume of 220 x 220 x 250mm. This simply means the CR-20 is actually smaller than its predecessor. We understand this feature can disappoint all those who appreciated the CR-10 for its enormous print area.
But do not hurry to pass by. Despite the reduction in build volume, the Creality CR-20 still has some impressive features and improvements. Its modular design makes this 3D printer incredibly easy to assemble, requiring just six screws to put the two main modules together.
At the same time, the Creality CR-20 is equipped with a new V2.1 main board, which the manufacturer claims are an upgrade over the chips included in previous 3D printer models. It is also capable of resuming a print after a power failure occurs. This printer is not new in the 3D printing industry, but it has become an increasingly popular addition to new 3D printers thanks to the Original Prusa i3 MK3.
The Creality CR-20 also comes with a built-in LCD and encoder wheel. Kin the CR-10, there was a standalone control box that made the entire package just too bulky. For this new model, the company has integrated a user interface onto the base of the frame at a 30-degree tilt angle, allowing for smoother operation and ultimately making the printer much more compact.
Also, the glass bed of the previous model has been replaced with a removable Buildtak-like print bed. So users can detach from the print bed and remove their model by simply bending the platform.
