“The go-to manufacturer of better-than-most budget desktop 3D printers, Shenzhen-based Creality has mastered its craft with fused deposition modeling (FDM) machines such as the CR-10 and Ender 3.

For the nascent hobbyist desktop resin 3D printing, such success has not been as forthcoming. The company’s past three masked stereolithography (MSLA) 3D printers barely nudged the needle when held against stiff competition of the likes of Anycubic’s Photon and the newer Elegoo Mars. Which is odd, since these machines are all much of a muchness. All offer 2K masking LCDs at their heart, making small, highly-detailed prints effortless, and all offer on or around 120 x 68 mm build space in the X- and Y-axes.

Perhaps fourth time’s the charm, as Creality launches the LD-002R, its latest MSLA offering.”
