This is the S, upgraded version, of the CR-10, which has the filament detector and the dual Z-axis screws. I don't think anyone other than the annoying to deal with companies, gearbest, lightinthebox, has had this for a price like this. Deal is already something like 70% claimed and goes for another 2+hours.

Price is 479.20 w/ FSSS or Prime shipping and maybe tax.

Also note that this is the HICTOP version, not the Creality one.

I've been looking for this for awhile and glad I got it. Good luck guys.

Beware the sloppy z-axis. Look at the z tower test in this review. It's a Tevo Tornado review but he compares it to the CR10 and CR10S.

Personally, I would just get a Tornado. It's basically a CR10 with many of the problems fixed. It's also $150 cheaper than this deal.

Here it is. If you use someone's referral code it should be $329. Just google for a code.

Google "tevo tornado $329" and you'll see a bunch of referral codes.

Tried everything I could find. Found a few references of that on Reddit from a month ago.. all of them were titled with EU. I see the EU one is at that price. Thanks for the info none the less.

Except that is referring to the CR-10, not the CR-10S, which has dual z-axis screws. The 10S is much better for that because it was Z support on both sides. The CR-10 is comparable in price to the Tornado, but the S is more expensive for the second Z-axis screw and the filament run-out detector, as well as a few other feature upgrades like digital bed leveling (not quite auto, but it is software guided).

Also, this is from Amazon and not Gearbest which tons of people have had issues with.

It was the same price for the US plug version 2 weeks ago.

Regardless, why not get the Euro plug? It's just a cord. You probably have a US cord that fits in the house already. If not, get one for $1 at a dollar store. Just flip the PSU switch from 220v to 110v.

No. He compares it to the CR-10S. Watch the review. The z tower test on the CR-10S is sloppy. It's wavy.

I don't know why people assume that two screws is better than one. Done right, it can be. But on a cheap printer..... You have to get a lot right to do dual screws. The motors have to be exactly the same. The rods have to be exactly the same. The control electronics have to control both at exactly the same time. The motors have to activate and deactivate at exactly the same time. Any mismatch with any of those and the two motors will just be fighting one another. Motors are not the same off the factory floor. There's variation. That's why Prusa hand matches it's motors for each printer. That's why Prusas cost more.

By the way, about the mesh leveling. That's been in the open source firmware forever. It's just most printer companies don't turn it on. You can turn it on with any printer that uses open source firmware.

I was contemplating that however I was watching a youtuve video review on it- Make Anything channel and he had a coupon code in the description
'TornadoUS'. This code brought it to $329 for the US plug... in case anyone else reading this was interested.

Thanks for the heads up. I was just about to just say screw it and go with the CR-10S but at $329 I think i'll bite on the Tornado.

Thanks for the heads up.

That's got to be an issue with either his machine, or his print area, because plenty of other people have had way better success with their CR-10's and S's than that. That print out was awful and it looks like he had some serious wobble.

If it was a review from some random first time noob poster, I would tend to agree with you. But it's not. Contrary to his choose youtube name, 3dmakernoob knows his stuff. He owns 3 CR-10's. I think he would know if it was an issue with that specific printer or not. He uses all 3 of his CR-10's to compare against the Tornado in that review.

Like I said, it's easier than not to screw up with dual screws. Even a 1/10th of a degree offset between the two screws is a problem. It'll add up over the length of the z-axis and you'll get a wavy look like that.

I really don't get why people are demanding dual screws. Unless you are going to use a heavy hotend, perhaps a multi extruder with motors mounted on the hotend, then I don't see the benefit.

Based upon this review the CR-10 and CR-10S have better print quality than the Tevo Tornado:
