Why You Should Upgrade to a B9 Core Series

Why You Should Upgrade to a B9 Core Series

November 9, 2017 – By Becca Golliher

We love the B9Creator. It’s where we got our start. Because of that machine, we're where we are today – in 66 countries making 3D printing easier and faster than ever, all thanks to valued customers like you. That’s why when we went to build a new machine, we wanted to know what mattered most to you.

You wanted a machine so easy to use, it didn’t take the highest paid person in your shop to run it. You wanted the same high resolution but without the calibrations – repeatable accuracy at a speed that couldn’t be beat.  In short, you wanted a machine that offered value on a production scale, with the same customer service and lifetime tech support you’ve come to expect from B9Creations.

We listened, and we delivered a machine designed with you in mind.

The B9 Core Series sets a new standard for 3D printing everywhere.

So what are the main differences?


In a competitive business environment, time is money. The B9 Core Series can save you both. The B9Creator was already 2x faster than the industry average. The new B9 Core Series ups that advantage with speeds 4x the industry average. That’s print speeds reaching 120+mm/hr.

A ring can print in as little as 45 minutes, which means more business and faster sales. Such short print times enable same-day design, print, and cast.

“Monday I ran a print for a local jeweler I do trade work for. Design, print, cast and set a $15,000 job in less than 24 hours with the B9 Core 550.  Nothing can come close to what the Core Series can do.” - Frank Kapplow, owner of 4 B9Creators who just upgraded to a B9 Core 550

With an industrial HD LED light engine at its heart, a new patent-pending DuraVat that lasts 600 prints or a year, and no time-consuming calibration, the B9 Core Series prints faster than anything on the market and allows for quick-turnaround of prints and end-use products.

“Switching to the B9 Core Series saved me 6 hours a week on recoating alone and over 27 hours in print time.” - Bruce Trick, previous B9Creator v1.2 owner and now proud owner of the B9 Core 530


The B9 Core Series streamlines the 3D printing process – less prep, more prints.

We found B9Creator users frustrated with manually recoating their vats as they became cloudy frequently. With our new patent-pending B9 DuraVat, there’s no recoating involved, and it is guaranteed to last for 600 prints or one year before clouding, saving you hours of prep work between prints with no need to ever buy PDMS again.

With no calibration necessary, the B9 Core Series operates with the push of a few buttons – on a touchscreen interface that connects to your computer via Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or USB.

The machine also stores previous prints, allowing for easy and repeatable printing. Plus every machine comes with a free remote factory start-up training, walking new users through the basic commands and components of the machine and software.

 “Now, many people on my team are able to use the B9 to print models, even if I am not here. This gives a lot more freedom and relieves the stress of being the only person to 3D print for the store.” - Bruce Trick, after switching from a B9Creator v1.2 to a B9 Core 530

The B9 Core Series is so user-friendly, even someone who has never touched a 3D printer before can use it. In fact, at trade shows and events, we always ask people who’ve never seen our machine before to see if they can do a print – and we haven’t had a single person fail!

“I’ve had the B9 Core 530 since June, and absolutely love it. You can literally set it up and start printing in 15 minutes! You don’t need a separate computer to run it. You transfer files via WiFi (or USB stick).” - David Wilkinson, original owner of the B9Creator v1.1, and now B9 Core 530


The B9 Core Series proves its value day in and day out by simplifying to-do lists, shortening customer wait times, and increasing productivity. With guidance and help from experienced industry specialists, we focused on features that emphasized a machine capable of keeping up with the demands of the business world – speed, simplicity, precision, and repeatability. The B9 Core Series isn’t just a pretty machine, it’s a sales tool.

Paired with our casting resins, which provide the ultimate results for castable jewelry, and prototyping resins, which provide extraordinary repeatable results in a fraction of the time, the proof is in the prints.

“B9 has taken the human error out of the equation unlike the other printers that are still dealing with vat problems and failures or damage, focus, settings, and a myriad of other fixes to get the prints that the B9 does with little effort.” -Tim Staton, owner of B9Creator v1.1 who transitioned to B9 Core 530
