3D Printing is without a doubt one of the most exciting hobbies around, and the blend of science and creativity means that pretty much anyone and everyone can enjoy it equally. However, if there’s one factor that a lot of 3D Makers around the world don’t enjoy about 3D Printers, it’s the non-stop noises that these awesome machines produce. And while many of us just want to print through the day and continue printing through the night, it’s just not always realistic, given the strange and sometimes aggressive noises that the electrons make as they whizz through the circuits.

This is why we decided to leverage the relationship that we’ve been building with Creality 3D over the past few years, and we specially requested an exclusive Creality Ender 5 Silent Edition, which comes fully equipped with the new Creality 3D V1.1.5 Silent Motherboard and world-renowned TMC2208 Trinamic Drivers - and has now gained enough popularity to be added non-exclusively to their catalogue. This means that you can now enjoy a nice, quiet 3D Printer that will let you sleep through the night and quell those tensions at home, without ever having to deal with replacing Motherboards, potentially voiding warranties, or making small mistakes that lead to costly disasters – All while enjoying the peace of mind in knowing that everything has been thoroughly tested and quality-assured before even leaving the Creality Warehouse.

This DIYElectronics Exclusive Ender 5 Silent Edition is designed to the exact same specifications as the most recent Creality Ender 5 3D Printers on the market, but have simply been upgraded with the new motherboard and silent Stepper Drivers before being shipped out. And while we were originally quite unsure of just how much value this would add to the 3D Printer, after testing it out, we have been blown away by just how much this somewhat simple change has made to the overall noise level – and user experience – of 3D Making on these machines.

So, if you love 3D Making, but find that the never-ending squeaks and “songs” of the stepper drivers to be less-than-enjoyable, then our new Creality Ender 5 S is the ideal 3D Printer for you!

And finally, just to sweeten this awesome deal, we are currently working on a DIY Kit that will let you replace all of your Cooling Fans with silent versions, making the machine truly silent in all regards. However, we are still trying to find the most silent fans that we possibly can, and we are constantly testing different models to make sure we find only the best fans for truly silent operations. So be sure to keep an eye out for this kit, and consider signing up to our newsletter if you haven’t done so already, so you can be notified early and be first in line to get your Ender 5 Silent Fan Upgrade Kit when it’s ready.

Please Note: This description has focused on the silent characteristics of our new Ender 5 Silent Edition, but if you’re looking for more juicy details on the base machine, be sure to check out the Original Ender 5 Page, where we compare it to other models on the market and give our verdict on the great features that it offers.

Disclaimer: While this model was originally a DIYElectronics Exclusive edition, the popularity of it has driven Creality to add it to their catalogue permanently, and while we are a little disappointed at losing the exclusivity, we are equally excited to see that Creality are considering the noise-factor to be more important than they may have originally thought.

Our Verdict on the DIYElectronics Exclusive Creality Ender 5 Silent Edition:

As a foreword, we must mention that we may be slightly biased towards this machine, since it is a specially requested model that was courteously supplied by Creality just for us, although regardless of whether parts and machines are exclusive or not, we do always try to give our best objective view.

With that out of the way, we have been very impressed by just how effective the simple driver and motherboard swap has been, and with great quality Trinamic Drivers and the new V1.1.5 motherboard, this new Ender 5 Silent Edition has become almost entirely noise-free, with no more squeals and squeaks, and just the soft white noise of the fans whirring away. This means that you don’t have to sacrifice sleep or sanity to print through the day and into the night, giving you more time to create and a far more enjoyable 3D Making experience.

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.
