Creality showcases new ‘prosumer’ K1C 3D Printer

With 2024 set to be a major year in 3D printing as the technology really takes off and printers become much more set up and go than ever before, Creality has announced its new KlC machine that updates the popular K1 many times over.

We have already covered how you can 3D print amazing 3D models for your games room and cosplay needs in recent weeks and if that has piqued your interest, the K1C is available from 25th January on Amazon or via Creality itself. You can even find a FC Bayern Munich-branded K1C there!

As a fully enclosed unit Creality says the K1C will come pre-assembled for plug-and-play. Booting the printer for the first time will see it run through auto-calibration and bed-leveling before being ready to go.

One of the least enjoyable parts of the 3D printing hobby is constantly leveling your bed with a piece of paper and Creality promises this will be a thing of the past with the K1C.

Because we simply can’t have a product launch in 2024 without the mention of AI, the K1C comes complete with an AI camera in the chamber that will watch over your print process and alert you when things go wrong, hopefully saving you filament and clog nozzles.

A silent mode will allow you to switch the machine to run at less than 45dB, which Creality says is as loud as turning pages in a book!

Most importantly perhaps an active carbon filter will filter out any of the nasties produced by melting plastic and stop them taking up residence in your lungs.

We are still not sure we would ever sleep with a printer in the same room, but if we had, these things all help. We are looking forward to getting a closer look soon.

The Klipper-based Creality K1C is available from 29th January at a cost of $559 / £539
