As veterans in the industry, there aren’t many 3D Makers who haven’t heard of the name Creality. However, despite the widespread popularity and strong list of world-class models that they’ve produced over the past few years, they are primarily well-known due of their awesome FDM 3D Printers, which have consistently been leaders in the market throughout the world. This is why we’re so excited to finally bring you a high-quality DLP 3D Printer from the world-famous Creality 3D Brand, as it shows that Creality is not just a one-trick-pony, and instead is capable of producing awesome quality 3D Printers in the realm of DLP/SLA 3D Printing too!

This fresh new Creality LD-002R is not the first DLP Printer that Creality has produced, but is certainly the best that they’ve created so far, with features that not only rival top models of the current era, but actually surpass them in a number of ways – both in terms of print quality as well as user experience. Offering a high resolution 1440x2560 HD masking LCD, a good build volume of 119x65x160mm, a simple and user-friendly interface with USB functionality, as well as a load of other features unique to the market, the Creality LD-002R is coming in strong to set a new benchmark for Desktop DLP 3D Printers.

 

What are the Coolest New Features of the Creality LD-002R?

 When looking at the feature-set of the of the LD-002R, it’s easy to see that Creality have taken inspiration from all of the good ideas that worked on similar models within the price range. However, they have also taken a pragmatic and logical approach, and have given this little beast of a machine some unique upgrades that we weren’t expecting – but have been pleasantly surprised about.

So let’s dive into the key features of the Creality LD-002R that we love, which truly differentiate it from the many of the other awesome models available right now:

  • Intelligent Anti-Aliasing Function – If you’ve ever seen videos of or fiddled around with anti-aliasing settings in video games and video editing software, you will know that it is a clever technique that blends the contrast between distinct colours, using in-between pixels to act as shading and soften the edges of corners and edges. However, until now, nobody has really considered using it for LCD Masking, and this simple addition to the processing has made an amazing difference to the print quality that this machine can achieve. Now, instead of each pixel acting as a single solid colour point, these pixels can now be blended better to create smoother layer lines and softer edges, as well as better 3-dimensional accuracy for tricky rounded sections.
  • Volume-Marked Resin VAT – This is a feature that is primarily included for user convenience and is really valuable for helping to reduce waste and improve efficiency. Each model that you print can typically be estimated to require a specific volume of resin, and the resin vats on the LD-002R are clearly marked to help you use the exact amount you need – and no more. And while some people may think that this simply reduces the amount that you have to pour back into the bottle, the truth is that the resin in a vat can’t simply be reused, and needs to be filtered before being used again. As such, using minimal resin translates to needing minimal filtration, which of course means a longer lifespan for the purity for your resin and reduced problems relating to microscopic cured resin contamination.
  • Simplified Semi-Automatic Levelling – Many people may not know, but the LD-002R is not the first DLP/LCD 3D Printer that Creality has produced, and unfortunately their previous models were not impressive, and as such we didn’t stock them because we honestly didn’t think they were worth the money. Fortunately though, Creality have taken all of the feedback from us and other users around the world to heart, and have fixed every single issue that we (and probably many other people) had with previous models – with one massive improvement being the bed levelling system. With this in mind, Creality have now created one of the easiest levelling systems possible for DLP/LCD 3D Printers, and comes pre-levelled from the factory by default. If you do find that you need to level the bed again, the process simply involves loosening four hex screws, allowing the machine to push the platform the bottom, and then re-tightening the hex screws. That’s it, your levelling is now done, and you can get straight back into the 3D Printing action.

As you can see, although the Creality LD-002R doesn’t necessarily bring anything mind-blowingly new to the table, it does offer a few fresh features that we wouldn’t typically expect from a hobbyist-grade DLP/LCD 3D Printer. These are all carefully considered though, so as to make the final user experience one of the best in the business – and this even includes the wide range of FDM/FFF 3D Printers that we’ve enjoyed using so far. From small but very appreciated improvements like the volume-marking on the resin vat, through to the semi-automatic levelling system which takes away the most common hassle of both beginner and veteran DLP Makers, the Creality LD-002R is a genuine bargain that is going to be hard for competitors to match.

So if you’re looking for an awesome hobbyist-grade DLP/LCD 3D Printer to really take your design details to the next level, the Creality LD-002R is certainly some of the best value that money can buy. Offering all of the great features from leading DLP/LCD 3D Printers over the past few years, as well as a few extra “finishing touches” to add even more value to print quality and user experience, this beautiful machine is your gateway to a whole new world of 3D Printing.

Our Verdict on the New Creality LD-002R DLP/LCD 3D Printer:

Although we do understand that we have somewhat of a bias towards the Creality Brand, we also find it extremely important to take be as objective as possible, regardless of the brand that we’re reviewing. This is why we never brought the LD-001 or the original LD-002 (Non-R) to the market, as they simply didn’t live up to the quality standard that we were happy sharing with you, our valued customers. However, with the LD-002R, it’s totally different, and we simply can’t recommend this 3D Printer enough!

After creating two models before this and learning thoroughly from both successes and failures in the DLP Printer game, Creality have created somewhat of a masterpiece, which brings together all of the great features from the past few years, as well as some distinct new features, to create the best DLP/LCD 3D Printer we’ve ever used.

With this in mind, we certainly recommend the Creality LD-002R for anyone who is eager to get involved in DLP 3D Printing, as well as for DLP Veterans who are looking for another reliable and feature-rich machine to add to the production line.

 

If you’re eager to find out more about the Creality LD-002R, or want to see a second opinion of this beautiful machine, content creator “MakeUseOf” recently reviewed a demo model of this unit, and we encourage you to take a look and feast your eyes on all of the cool new features below:

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.
