I reviewed and spent lot of time debating & researching about which 3D printer should I go for especially these days since there are many out there. After a lot of efforts, I ended up getting CR-10 V2. I am glad I made this decision. Its truly a great, easy to use, fun 3D printer which is big enough to take on some big prints. Myself being a new bee, I wasn't sure if I should get something big like this or Ender3 or something. But I did purchase this anyway. It works great. Very silent Stepper motors, however control box fan sounds little loud but that can be modified to replace high quality silent cooling/exhaust fan. Overall I have tried only 3 prints so far but I can tell, once the leveling is done perfectly, this printer doesn't seem to need more attention. It just keep rolling, Did my third print so far and looks great. No surprises. I would recommend this printer to any one!
Hands Down for Creality3D for creating such an amazing, convenient 3D printer!
Check out my Videos for glimpse of the Printing process!
Thankyou for the silent board,what a difference.its a must have.only thing is there should be an alternative when purchasing the pro and thats a upgrade tick list so you can buy the pro with everything installed.
For that price, I received a really good 3D Printer.
The printer was very well packed, I received it in good conditions.
This my first 3D printer, and I am wonder that I installed all parts and it starts working very well from beginning.
Thank you very much!
Second print on the LD-002R finished in 3 hrs 32 mins. Loving the printer already. ....
What have we here? LD-002R is the new Creality resin printer. Seems very well built, lets see how it prints 😁 I usually mute my videos but I thought some might want to hear what it sounds like while operating. First test print came out fantastic. Chain links sliced with Chitubox, took 1 hr 31 mins. I used the Anycubic grey resin as the machine did not include any type of sample resin, no big deal if Im being honest. I'll get my hands on some Creality resin at some point to compare.
How to install it @ Ender 3? Easy very easy !!!
How it works? Very well !!!
Best, take a look by your self.
Ordered these mainly for the looks to match the upgraded Mk8 aluminium extruder I recently fitted as it is anodised the same shade of red as these hand wheels. They are very tactile with a nice fine grip pattern around the outer edge so are easy to adjust especially if you have dexterity problems as I do. Very well made and and are high quality well worth the money and would highly recommend them.
Great printer. Easy setup and high print quality.
Simple setup and easy printing of calibration shapes. No semi-automatic bed leveling gcode included but plethora of leveling codes in the net. 200g of white filament included. No troubles with the filament except for the abyssmal coiling. Replacement filament has perfect coiling
At first I thought the new Board would be a minor improvement. But for my printer it made a huge difference for the noise
J'ai la Ender 5 depuis début janvier et je dois avouer que je suis surpris par la qualité d'impression qui est excellente.
Au travail nous avons une Prusa qui est plus compliqué à régler.
J'ai ajouté une plaque en verre (1.5€ chez Castorama), car le plateau était légèrement concave, et du coup plateau complètement plan et très simple a régler.
Je conseil cette imprimante, à tout passionné, il faut cependant passer pas mal de temps sur les réglages du slicer pour obtenir une bonne qualité, mais c'est complètement indépendant de l'imprimante.
Very good 3D Printer!!
So far this has been a purchase well worth the money. I think this printer has a lot of unlocked potential that I haven't utilized yet as I am just starting in 3D printing. I would recommend this to anyone looking to jump into the hobby.
Take your time with assembly and be patient when troubleshooting if you run into any issues.
Nice metal knobs, they work without worry. Would prefer other color options and possibly the addition of an up/down engraving but as is, they are a nice addition to the machine that takes away worry of an insert thread separating from the plastic.
This machine was so easy to build and maintain. The only thing I didn't care for was the magnetic build plate. Had to keep calibrating the bed. I order the glass build plate and have had a problem since.
I like the glass better then the build plate that came with it. The glass is so lot easier to calibrate.
Instructions are better looked up online through youtube but it works great once you can get the z-offset situated! i love not having to manually level anymore!
overall great quality enclosure.
However, I do wish it had more openings on the back and the sides for easy access to the printer.
I have the Silent mainboard v1.1.5.
After install the hardware, upgrade the Silent mainboard FW directly using Octopi, auto bed level, adjust Z offset, enter initial G code and it is good to go.
I used it with Ender3 Direct Drive kit from Fargo. The mounting bracket from teh Fargo kit needs to be modified, other than that, everything was easy to install.
Good deal for the money
It's an easy upgrade to the 2.2 Silent. The printer is quiet now with the sound only coming from the power supply fans (which are still too loud). However, you don't get the annoying sounds from the motor drivers. It's an upgrade but in reality for 2020, it should be standard on the 5 Plus because all other printers ship with quiet drivers. If this was 2012, that's a different story and it would have been acceptable.
To do the swap over, takes about 45 minutes. The main issue is that Creality hot glues the connectors and it takes time to remove the hot glue. Additional heat sinks would also be nice to keep the new board running cooler.
A few weeks ago if I got the printer. I agree , I read some web reviews before I ordered one but now I'm happy that I deceided to the Ender 5 Pro. My assembling was done in 45 min and the first test out of the box was very good, better than with my Zmorph 2.0 S. Another surprise : after a few weeks i got another parcel with a PEI bed. Thanks for this gift, works fine. So I may recomment this product. Delivery is fast too.
The printer arrived promptly; and the packaging is very well designed to keep it safe. The box is also very cute, as it’s “Afraid of Wet”.
The assembly instructions are rather vague in places, so I’d highly recommending finding a good video helping you to assemble it (reddit.com/r/ender3 has some good links for getting set up).
With careful assembly (checking things are square etc so far accuracy has been within 0.05mm.)
Word of advice - the lower frame is usually wonky out of the factory - loosen the screws and press firmly on opposite corners and then tighten them up, and this will fix it.
My biggest criticism is that Thermal Runaway isn’t enabled on the Ender 3 out of the factory - meaning you should NEVER leave it unattended due to the risk of fire if the thermister is faulty/breaks.
The most important thing to do is to update the firmware so you can enable thermal runaway (which isn’t switched on by default). But this does require some know how and an Arduino.
All Ok, Thx
Evereything went better than expected! Great printer.
Was not excepting to have such a quality product for this price! It’s my first 3D printer and I’m super satisfied. Box came really well packed and assembly was easy with the help of some videos online!
As with all Creality products they are of consistent quality.
Kids had an awesome time assembling the printer and I am astounded at how well it prints.
I already have a CR 10s Pro for 9 months and I wanted a new one for small printing. I full enjoy the Ender 3 which is just great.
I cant say enough good things about the printer. I am new at 3d Printing. I ordered it with the glass plate and its well worth the extra money. After watching various assembly videos I was up in running in a few days. Some of the third party videos have lots of pointers on assembly. The leveling of the bed was not as hard as I imagined. I truly did not expect my first print to go well but to my surprise it was excellent. I now have a table top of printed items from various sources. The only problem I encountered was loading the filament. I let the filament go loose in the reel and it looped over its self and a tangle appeared in the reel later on. I now understand this is a common problem. But all in all I highly recommend the ender as a first 3d printer. Everything you need to get started is included.
