It only took about 30-45 minutes to get everything put together!
The CR Laser Falcon is an aluminum frame and X-axis gantry with a silver finish, which looks like it would be perfect for any modern home or office. It has almost Art Deco patterned feet to give off that sleek yet sophisticated vibe!
For Rod, it is build with bold 8mm optical axis (the market is generally 6mm optical axis),so that body is more stable and more accurate.
The legs have rubbery covers that protect tabletops from scuffs, it is build by Anti-slip design of L-shaped rubber feet, it has two-way anti-slip on the front and side, it will keep you securely planted but also prevent any movement from taking place on either side
This large-area machine has an engraving interval of 400 x 415mm which will meet your various needs. It utilizes a screw rod instead if combined couplings to make it more precise and durable, as well!
To achieve fast focus for the machine, you just need to loose the laser head screw and slide it so that your eye can easily see throught he protective cover. Locktighten again once you have found a good spot for viewing!
Multi Level Focus Block
This little block helps me find the best focusing distance for different depths of materials without having to measure one by one, very convenient tools.
Always Spot On
For ease of use, the CR-Laser Falcon also comes equipped with a preview function for lining up the laser lines before a job is commenced, it makes easier to ensure that you are engrave rigating in the right place. The continuous blue light emissions from your machine will show where on whatever surface has been selected for cutting, ensuring accuracy every time!
Build In Leveler
It is included a convenient bubble level to ensure that the gantry will operate parallel with its surface, this is quite useful if your working table is not that flat.
One Button Management
Unlike other brand machine, Creality do not have LCD screen, it only has one button to manage every function. You can press the button to control working status,including preview , engrave, pause and restart.
The protective cover can filter 90% UV light, it enable users to inpsect workdout during engraving without wearing goggles, and a small fan and filter system is mounted behind the laser lens to reduce smoke and fumes. But again, I still highly recommend putting on safety goggles all the time.
Also please remind that It’s best to work in well-ventilated areas and never leave the device running without monitoring it closely, because of its fumes which are toxic for some people
With its 32-bit motherboard, it can Engrave at speeds up 40% faster than other models while also having access free software like Laser GRBL which enables open source functionality! You can also try out LightBurn, which is a paid software with an time-limited full function trial period. It may be worth giving it another go once your engraver has been mastered!
Laser Engraving & Cutting Results
With its powerful 10W output laser,it allow you engrave different material for your creation. Creality CR-Laser Falcon comes with a long list of engraving material capabilities, including paper, leather, fabrics, wood, acrylic, polymers, and even metallic surfaces.
- Easy to assemble
- The magnetic cover is quite impressive
- Machine is stable and output is great
- 10W power is quite enough for me
- Large engraving size

So, is Creality CR laser falcon 10W worth it? It depends, if you are a beginner and looking for a small machine to get start your engraving journey, it will be better to pick 5W machine at amazon as it has lots of machine under $300.
However, If you’re looking for an affordable, large laser engraver & cutter that can create your own masterpiece of artwork, then the answer would be yes.
