While many people love the fact that 3D Printing is bringing personal fabrication into the hearts and homes of hobbyists, what we love most is how there are always fun and unique ways to try to improve the quality of all of the different machines on the market. And a great example of this is the CR-10 S5 Support Rod Kit, which attaches to the Z-Axis and the base of Creality CR-10 S5, to stabilise the large build volume machines and improve the overall quality of the prints they produce.

These Creality Upgrade Kits come in six major parts, including the two rods split into halves and the Z-axis corner brackets, complemented by a full range of screws, nuts, rod end mounts and other small parts, as well as a small tool kit with an Allen Key, screwdriver and tapping tool for tapping the mounting holes into the base frame extrusion. And while at first we didn’t truly believe that it would add substantial value to an already-great machine, we were happily surprised with the fact that it made our own CR-10 S5 3D Printers even better than ever before – something we didn’t think was possible on a typical hobbyist’s budget.

Typical Applications for CR-10 S5 Support Rod Kit:

The CR-10 S5 Support Rod Kit is a simple but elegant solution to improve print quality by increasing stability and reducing wobbling or shaking during prints. This results in more consistent accuracy and higher print quality as the inertia of the moving parts don’t show through in prints, which of course translates to less wasted 3D Filament and more enjoyment from each and every experience with your Creality CR-10 S5.


Please Note: It’s important to be very careful when tapping the ends of the base extrusions, as breaking the tapping bit inside the extrusion can be disastrous. So be sure to check out some online video guides on how to install this kit before diving in head first.

CR-10 S5 Support Rod Kit

Although Creality 3D have been working within the industry since 2014, their addition of the Creality CR-10 series is what really catapulted them to the front line of competition, as it offered substantially better quality compared to other 3D printers – while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexities of the machines.

The quality of Creality’s 3D Printers and accessories shows through in their market history, with the brand selling around 3000 printers in their first year on the market, followed by about 10,000 sales over the next year. Now, Creality easily sells around 30,000 or more 3D printers each year, with sales continuously rising as they bring out more models. These are impressive numbers when considering the fact that they entered the industry as unknown competitors, quickly rising through the ranks and now even competing with Wanhao and similar top brands.

If you are looking for excellent 3D Printers that offer affordability without compromising on quality, Creality 3D is certainly a brand that you should take note of. From the basic Creality Ender 2 all the way up to the large build volume Creality CR-10 S5, there are few other brands who are capable of offering such a refined package while still maintaining some of the most enticing prices in the industry.
