Today we are looking at the CR200B, a fully enclosed printer from Creality’s ever expanding range.
This sleek new machine, while not directly aimed at the professional market, promises high performance in many areas. With an upgraded nozzle and hotend assembly, large responsive touch screen with new UI, carborundum glass bed with easy removal and fully enclosed print volume for handling the more temperature temperament filaments such as ABS.
Unboxing the Creality 200B is mostly straightforward as the printer comes in one piece, no assembly required except for clicking in the rear spool holder. 2 large pieces of foam secure the printer from top and bottom and all the other contents are stored inside the build chamber, also nestled in thick protective foam while the printer is wrapped in multiple layers of plastic. The build platform is wrapped in a few layers of cling wrap which proved difficult to remove so take care with this. Lastly, the hotend assembly is held in place with a zip-tie so be sure to remove that before proceeding.
