- 300x300x300m Build Volume.
The first, most obvious feature you will immediately notice is the larger print bed. Although slightly smaller than an Ender 3 Max, this print area is more than enough for tackling bigger bolder projects.
- “Sprite” Direct Drive Extruder.
Newly developed by Creality themselves, the Sprite Direct Drive Extruder and Hotend reaches up to 260°C. The interesting dual-gear design is perfect for printing PLA, ABS, PETG, and various flexible filaments like TPU. Feeding with up to 80N force, this extruder minimalizes the distance your filament must travel to the Hotend. Loading new 3D filament becomes pain-free and the extruder’s extra control brings cleaner print results. The main standout difference between the Sprite and other Creality extruders is the heatsink, which integrates into the mounting plate, allowing the cooling fan to blow completely through the heatsink. Creality claims this change significantly reduces the chances of clogging, leaving you to enjoy 3D printing issue free.
- CR Touch Automatic Bed-Levelling.
The Ender 3 S1 Plus still provides the classic manual levelling knobs on the print carriage, but the installation of the CR touch means your struggle to find that perfect level is over. Automatic bed-levelling is a popular upgrade that’s beginning to become a standard feature for modern 3D Printer models. Creality has improved their original BL Touch into the CR Touch with a metallic sensor pin and optical sensor technology. Your Ender 3 S1 Plus will automatically level using 16 points on the bed surface and compensate for any differing height points while printing.
- Flexible Magnetic PC Spring Steel Sheet.
The Ender 3 standard BuildTak bed is now replaced on the Ender 3 S1 Plus with a PC-coated spring steel bed which peels off the platform and flexes to pop prints easily off the bed. This sturdier and tougher print surface performs wonderfully for good bed adhesion. Flexible build plates bring a new level of convenience to your 3D Printing experience, eliminating any need to shovel your 3D Prints off the bed as it often feels like using a scraper.
- Dual Z-Axis Motors and Dual leadscrews.
Although the new Sprite Extruder is a lightweight design, Creality has gone a step further to include dual Z-axis screws and motors. This extra power and synchronized coordination means your x-axis gantry, where the Hotend sits, is guided smoothly as it moves up or down. Because of the additional weight of a direct drive extruder on the print head, problems may arise if the X gantry is off-balanced or wobbles, creating poor quality 3D prints. However, with two Z-axis motors on the Ender 3 S1 Plus, the stability of the X-axis is ensured and makes for an overall reliable machine.
