Creality K1C 3D Printer: New Champion of Speed and Skill

Creality’s K1 series 3D printers have set off a huge craze among consumers since early 2023, owing to their 600mm/s super speed and out-of-the-box experience. Half a year later, Creality brings yet another pacesetter – the K1C, which upgrades the popular K1 with a reliable extrusion system, better filament compatibility, an AI camera, an air filter and much, much more. This new prosumer machine is the true champion of speed and skills.

Optimized Printhead for Carbon Fiber Printing

K1C features an all-metal extruder kit, boasting 1000h clog-free extrusion. Enhanced by a bolster spring and a ball plunger, the extruder gives a tight grip on the filament that won’t slacken off. At the same time, the “Unicorn” nozzle integrated with heat break blocks heat creep and can be swapped easily with one hand. Even better, the nozzle is tipped with hardened steel. So, it can handle carbon fiber filled filaments such as PLA-CF and PETG-CF, which are widely used in industrial printing for their mechanical strength and dimensional stability. Fairly speaking, The Creality K1C is as capable as a professional 3D printer.

K1C takes the excellent cooling system of K1 even further. The hotend and part cooling fans on the printhead are now dynamically balanced so they are less likely to wobble, minimizing ringing or ghosting.

Out of the Box Experience Without Letdowns

The Creality K1C is pre-assembled for plug and play. The boot-up guide operates as if you are turning on a new smartphone. Then, the auto-calibration gets leveling and everything else ready for you. No more frustrating paper test. To let more users enjoy the power of artificial intelligence, K1C comes standard with an AI camera that can watch over the printing for you and will actively alert you if an error occurs. It is also great for real-time monitoring and time-lapse filming.

Did we mention that when an individual print fails in batch-printing, you can simply exclude it from the batch, so other prints can continue without being affected? That’s another amazing feature. The printer is also more secure with the damper hinge and pre-installed damping pads. K1C is just like a considerate friend. It won’t bother you when you are bent on other things. But when you need its support, it will spare no effort.
