If you’ve been in the 3D Printing game for a while now, you may have seen how the models from various manufacturers have all somewhat followed the same patterns, going from very basic Prusa clones to delta style machines, back to Prusa i3 style but with a distinctly modern features, and ultimately towards the more cube-shaped designs. Now, while all of these styles mentioned above are each good in their own regards, each also offers distinct benefits and drawbacks, but over time we’ve come to learn that the cube-shaped designs tend to have a slight edge over the rest, and this is probably simply due to the higher levels of rigidity, as well as the extra structural pieces that hold it all together firmly and securely. This is why, when we saw the fresh new design of the Creality Sermoon D1, Creality’s Affordable Industrial Grade 3D Printer, we knew that we were in for some seriously awesome print quality, as this machine has not only been built to the most modern style as of 2021, but also features that beautifully secure and stable cube-design, with all of the great features that such a design brings with it.

Although the design of the Creality Sermoon D1 is quite similar to recent models like the H-Bot Ender 5 and the Core-XY Ender 6, it’s actually more closely related to the Creality CR-10 style, being a cartesian style 3D Printer in the disguise of a Cube-Design. This actually gives it benefits from both worlds, as the cube-design style ensures a strong, sturdy and rugged chassis, while the cartesian style helps to make it as affordable as possible despite the many awesome features it offers – with clever little design tricks to ensure excellent quality even without the typical benefits that the H-Bot or Core-XY designs are well known for.

 

All the Right Features in All the Right Places:

With such a sleek design and a core focus on producing a 3D Printer that not only prints good, but looks damn good too, you may have noticed that some of the features aren’t quite as obvious as you might have experienced with other models. However, this certainly doesn’t mean that the Sermoon D1 lacks in features, and is in fact packed to the brim with a whole suite of awesome features that all focus on either great print quality, excellent value for money, or a streamlined and enjoyable user experience. As such, let’s take a closer look at some of these features, and how they will affect your time spent with this stylish and powerful machine.

  • Industrial Grade Components – As 3D Makers we often appreciate how manufacturers seem to perform miracles with some of the most basic components around, with the original Creality CR-10 being an absolute masterpiece in terms of offering excellent print quality with just loose parts that could be found around a typical workshop, along with a clever brain to help these parts act in unison. However, while it’s certainly awesome having the option to get many different low-cost models, sometimes we find ourselves wishing for higher quality 3D Components – but without the typical higher price tag attached. This is why we’ve been so impressed at the with the Creality Sermoon D1, as it seems like Creality 3D are taking full advantage of not just their knowledge and expertise in the industry, but also their supply lines and purchasing power, with the Sermoon D1 offering excellent quality industrial-grade parts at almost the same price as other models on the market. This includes some relatively minor things like Dual Cooling Fans on the hotend, but also extends into more serious design choices like smooth rods and chunky extrusions, and these seemingly simple changes make an incredible difference in the overall quality and capabilities of the Sermoon D1, giving it quite the impressive edge over designs despite falling into a similar price range.
     
  • Semi-Enclosed Cartesian Cube Design – After spending some time and doing a good number of prints and tests on the Creality Ender 6, we were quite surprised to find that semi-enclosing a 3D Printer actually makes quite a big difference to print quality, as it not only shields the prints from external forces like breezes and air conditioning (You’d be surprised at how much a slight draft can affect a print!), but also helps to maintain a warmer temperature around the print, which helps reduce start temperature gradients throughout the print, ensuring that the print remains stable, doesn’t lift on the edges, and of course matches the precision of the model you’ve designed. Of course, if you really want to step up on just the sidewalls, then you can also look into ways of adding a top cover, and this will certainly help with ABS Filaments, but even without the top lid, the side panels provide a great midway between quality of PLA and basic printing capabilities of ABS.
     
  • Quality of Life & Ultimate Ease of Use – As you can probably guess, we’ve tested a lot of 3D Printers in our time building, stocking and supporting different models from various brands, and although we don’t always like the idea of automatic bed levelling – we prefer the control and precision of manual levelling – we really do enjoy some of the other quality of life improvements that have slowly been becoming the norm even amongst hobbyist models. This may be precisely why we’ve fallen in love with the Sermoon D1, as it offers all of the amazing features that we love most, but doesn’t bother with the extra cost of automatic levelling, instead just relying on users to take control of their first layer adhesion themselves. Of course, this does mean that the Sermoon D1 is technically a more advanced model compared to most, and probably isn’t the best choice for beginners in the field, but what it does mean is that all of the cost and effectiveness has been purely focused on the features that matter, with things like Print-Resume-Functionality, Filament-Break-Detection, and even Automatic-Shutdown-After-Print being included in this package. Other great features include the use of a direct drive extruder for easier and more powerful 3D Printing, silent stepper drivers on the X and Y axis, a nice 45° angle on the display interface for easy access, as well as a silent fan integrated into the PSU, which is something that a lot of people will be able to appreciate after experiencing noisy fans in previous models.

Of course, all of these features would mean nothing if the Sermoon D1 wasn’t actually an incredible 3D Printer already, and the features we’ve discussed above only add to the overall value and enjoyment that the Sermoon D1 already offers. However, we also have to admit that the Sermoon D1 just wouldn’t be quite the powerhouse that it is without these features, but altogether, with both an excellent base to work with, complemented by an amazing suite of features, the Sermoon D1 is certainly one of the top choices if you’re really looking for an all-inclusive package for your next 3D Printer.

Our Final Verdict on the Creality Sermoon D1 Industrial Grade 3D Printer:

Before we begin our final verdict, we must first preface it with the fact that we really weren’t expecting it to be a great model, as from the outset it looked like the entire model was aimed specifically at aesthetics, putting the good looks of the machine ahead of actual functionality. However, rest assured that we were surprised (in a good way!) to find that behind those gorgeous aesthetics and the Satin Silver style, there is actually quite an incredible level of print quality that has been complemented perfectly with just the right features in just the right places.

Of course, if were to criticise it in any way, we would talk about how the curved edges along the top unfortunately make it quite a lot more difficult to fully enclose, while the filament guide (two idler bearings) really does seem like more of an afterthought than an actual design choice. However, despite those two details, the rest of the machine has thoroughly impressed us in almost every regard. It just must be noted that, when printing TPU and other more difficult 3D Filaments, that it will need to print at slower speeds, although overall we feel that this is perfectly fine when considering the print quality that the Sermoon D1 is capable of.

With all that being said, while the Sermoon D1 may not be beginner friendly, and to be honest isn’t quite as fast as some other 3D Printers in the same price range, if you’re looking for a machine that focuses purely on quality, while also adding a touch of style and aesthetics to almost any workshop, office or even bedroom, the Creality Sermoon D1 is more than just an excellent choice, and may in fact be the ideal 3D Printer you’ve been looking for. And of course, as with anything else that you’re investing your hard earned money on, do some research to find out if this model is actually good for you, especially if this will be your first 3D Printer, since it’s typically regarded as a good choice for veterans who already have some experience in working with all of the bells and whistles that these machines offer, but may not be the best choice for beginners who don’t fully understand what each of the features actually mean in regards to the end user experience.

Creality Sermoon D1 - Industrial Grade 3D Printer

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.
