Creality have created a new 3D printer, the CR-10 Mini. A slightly smaller version of the popular CR-10. It has added some extra functionality so although it packs a slightly smaller printing area it brings some newer features.
10 Minute setup
All printers need setup time and the CR10 mini sets up a lot easier than most others. Boasting a simple 10 min setup time you can simply join a few parts together and be ready to print.
The linear bearing system uses V slot and has zero gap fit for high accuracy and low noise.
Online and offline printing
When it comes to executing a print, the CR-10 Mini allows you not only connect with a PC but also use an SD card for direct offline printing.
Print from your phone!
Creality have an accessory that brings added functionality to the CR 10 mini. Using the Creality box you can print designs from your smartphone and monitor the printer.

The Creality 3D Printer Development history.
Creality has been developing printers for a few years and the Cr10 is rising in popularity as one of the best value 3D printers in the market.
We aim to have a sample in the office in the next few weeks and update this post with more photos and an actual test.
From what we have seen so far, this offers a simple way for 3D printing at a good price point. Aside from the smaller print area, it is an upgrade from the already popular Creality CR-10.
