Received mine last week, loving the great quality overall of the machine and the finished parts!
The Creality Ender 3 Pro is my first 3D printer. I purchased it as I have previously 'played' with CAD packages and been frustrated at not being able to physically handle the fruits of my labour. I saw this purchase as move from imagination to reality (or Creality). I was not disappointed. On arrival and opening the box I also thought, like all the reviews that I had read/watched, that it was very well packaged. With only the instructions from the box It took me about 2 hours to build, I definitely think I could have managed it quicker but I was working on other things in parallel. I powered the unit up, mounted some filament, inserted the SD card, selected the dog model and hit print. WOW, so easy, ALL of my family have been amazed at the results. It has been printing boxes, filament guides, vases etc for 3 days now without a break, even printing my own 3D design which I pulled together with one of the well know print packages.
I have had a few 3D printers from different manufactures and all have given me hours of entertainment as I have had to search the Internet forums for help in getting them built, set up correctly and advice on what went wrong with my many failed prints. So last November I bought a Creality CR-10 V2 in the Sale (a really great deal) and it's been in the box until now.
Like millions in the UK I find myself confined to my house and I have watched everything on Netflix so I decided to un-box and set up the CR-10 V2 assured of many hours of fiddling around and searching for the answers to problems on the Internet and hours spent trying to contact customer support for missing parts and trying to decipher badly translated manuals ... hours of fun. i was confident that this was going to use up weeks of time and I wouldn't get bored at all.
So I have to report that I am disappointed ... It took me 30 mins to build the 3D printer, not even a missing screw, and the concise manual with pictures made perfect sense. I kept looking in the empty box as surely I had missed something vital but no, all was as it should be. I powered it up, no error messages. I threaded the filament which got snagged because I hadn't realised it needed to be straight, took a minute to figure that out. I levelled the Bed, that admittedly took me two goes. Then I inserted the supplied SD card and selected PLA, to which the extruder and bed heated up very quickly. Then I selected the Lucky Cat to print from the SD card with the supplied white PLA ... and the printer started to print .... flawlessly ! The quality of the cute little cat is amazing. Now I have to find something else to do to fill up the many weeks in isolation ahead, well I guess I will just get on and print a load of stuff. Thanks Creality. But wait, I also have the BLTouch bed levelling device to install and a Titan direct extruder, I am sure these will not work and I will have days of fun fixing them ... I will post a review shortly, hopefully it will not be boring.
I watched Youtube videos before assembling and was ready for the one or the other tweaks and adjustments. But my Ender 3 Pro came fully adjusted and many problems related in past videos were solved by Creality. Thank you very much.
Great printer and even greater printer for the money!
I have after a long time finally assebmled the unit and I love the printer.
The semi assembled parts were not correct and had to be adjusted, and that was a bit weird, they could have been correct or not together at all. I even had one screw that were round and couldnt be adjusted (pointed it out on the picture with an arrow). But it still makes the prints great, So I guess I have to live with it. It is also a bit noisy and good to make a box for noise reduction if running in the same room as where you are.
I don't write many reviews but I love this machine.
Heads up, the instructions are.... hmmm. Ikea meets Beijing. Just pay attention; the rails are not identical, i had to dissamble midway to fit power supply properly, then again with PLA roll. You'll see. It's no big deal. For the captured nuts, insert the assembly at the top and keep pressure (slightly pull the assembly toward you) you slide them down. Electrical fittings were hard to locate, but they're all there and they all have a mate!
Once up and running, it's pretty flawless. Opens up a whole range of ideas and projects.
Looking forward to some ABS projects.
The whole process took about 10 minutes. Just make sure to peel off the glue on your old motherboard and switch the wires one by one. (Don’t take them off all at the same time). It was kind of scary how quiet it was because I was so used to hearing the sounds.
J’ai la ender 5 plus depuis un mois : après un montage très facile en 30 mn, j’ai recherché le guide d’utilisation ... qui n’est malheureusement pas disponible sur le site officiel. J’ai donc galéré sur le réglage du Z pour avoir la bonne épaisseur entre la buse et le plateau. J’ai trouvé l’info sur YouTube finalement mais c’est dommage qu’un petit livret de mise en route ne soit pas fourni dans le colis.
Depuis je l’utilise environ 10h par jour depuis 15 jours (2,5 kg de PLA de consommés pour 70 pièces fonctionnelles destinées à une CNC)
Le résultat de l’impression est vraiment très bon à condition d’imprimer directement sur le plateau en verre (surtout pas de scotch)
Le plateau, que je nettoie avec de l’alcool ménager à chaque impression, offre une adhérence exceptionnelle de l’impression mais assez facile à décoller avec la spatule, surtout si vous imprimer avec l’option < brim> sous CURA
Il faut également bien veiller à régler le plateau régulièrement, surtout à l’occasion des grandes impressions en x et y
La machine est assez bruyante lors de l’impression (surtout sur des petits mouvements en x et y, mais surtout en z), je ne comprends pas que creality n’ai pas équipé cette machine récente de la carte silencieuse ... dommage 😢
Autre point sensible : la fiabilité du firmware sur le pilotage du Z. Il arrive que la machine n’arrive pas à gérer correctement la mise à la bonne hauteur d’impression et du coup l’écran affiche un % d’impression qui se déroule à toute vitesse sans aucun déplacement de la tête; il faut couper le courant et relancer la machine et là ca marche (bizarre)
On est probablement sur des pbs de jeunesse en lien avec le BLtouch
J’en suis tout de même très content car la qualité du résultat est indiscutable une fois apprivoisé la machine
J’ai du rater 6 impressions au début en utilisant du scotch pour le plateau, mais depuis que j’imprime directement sur le plateau c’est 100% de réussite
Donc super content de cette machine
I’m on my third and largest print. I am new to printing, and there is a wealth of knowledge. You have to manually adjust the z-axis, and once you do that, you should be good to go. Print slow to start out and clean the print bed w/ isopropyl alcohol every time you use it. If you’re printing at 100, you’re printing too fast. If you want quality prints, print slow (20-30 to start, then 50 once the print is established). Also, print the extra parts like the filament rolly-feeder, the extruder fan duct, and the extruder housing for if they break or you’d like to avoid the filament pulling against the frame. Also, if you want to use TPU, or ABS, the filament feeder needs the clamp adjuster part you fit over the tension spring. You will have consistency and bed adhesion problems if you don't. Luckily they are free on thingverse. Beyond minor tweaks and the wish to use a usb not sd card plug in (There are sd card and computer plug support parts you can print as well), this printer is great. The print quality for the price is unmatched. I might buy a second depending on how this handles week long print jobs.
There is a learning curve but it is not steep or severe. This is a fabulous printer. I chose the 5 Pro as my first 3d printer because I did not want to have to do a lot of upgrades. However, there are a few things that I did want to upgrade after a month of use. This is probably the only 3d printer I will ever own because it meets my needs so well.
Bought some for creating Xmas decorations and it looks incredible!
Prints with no bed adhesion issues at all.
I just purchased this printer but I haven't received it. I ordered it on Wednesday but the order is still showing as "Unfulfilled". I highly agree with Tinkerbot over there. It's not a good business practice to make claims that a product has this or that and compare it to other products that are exactly the same when the product isn't actually capable of coming with a certain feature that has been used in advertisements. . The fact that the upgrade is not supplied with the standard version of the product is made somewhat clear by the statement in parentheses, however, up until a customer reads that part, it's made to sound like it is a standard feature. If these features are so great and they are trying to sell them with the machine, then why not equip the machine with the parts as advertised and charge the difference. It's a little beyond a marketing tactic. It could nearly be called a marketing scam.
I received today the new silence board. I had a problem with family to print due to the noise with original board generated but Now the only sound comes from fan’s.
Excelent printer made a product more then 200 printing hours for one product. Easy to refill in the marathon print.
Thank goodness for the community! One big issue i had with the BLTouch is the Z-Stop signal wires are reversed. Even some of the online documentation had it incorrect. Plenty of online documentation showing the correct orientation. Once i swapped the signal cables around, the bltouch detected and stopped the extruder from going down further. Everything else was pretty straight forward: Installed firmware using ultimaker cura 4.5 thru the USB Port, setting the Z-offset, adding in some additional code to the GCode when slicing. All in all it was a quick install. If anything, i spent WAY more time just OCD'ing with wire management :)
If you are new to 3D printing, then like me you might think that the noise from your 3D printer is not that bad, and even a little pleasant. Trust me, that will change. Just like the movie Frozen's "Let it Go" was a pretty song the first few times you heard it, after about two dozen times of hearing it, the pleasantness starts to wear off. After about 50 times of hearing it, you want to smash the DVD into pieces. That was my experience with the sounds coming from my Ender 5 Plus.
This silent board put an end to all those sounds. It was extremely easy to install. I started with switching the power wires first, one by one. Then I took the cables and switched them over one by one. The whole process took about 30-45 min. Now the only sound coming from my printer is the fan noise from my power supply.
I print often, so this was money well spent and I would highly recommend it to anyone buying a compatible printer.
Only had it about a month, and I need more. Thank you for my new addiction. Long live the Ender series. <3
Highly recommend taking the time to watch some videos before setting it up if you're a complete noob. Leveling your bed before setting up the entire beast and tightening any pre-assembled items. I took the time to apply loctite to everything as I was setting it up to help with longevity and later maintenance.
Right out of the box I started printing decent prints, a little tweaking and I got pretty good prints. Dived deeper and getting great prints. Can't wait to see what else comes. I wish it had multi-color, but there's mods such as a Y-splitter or even complete dual extruder builds you could do (pretty in-depth).
Recieved on time in perfect condition, The parts were very well packed in foam, Parts where checked for square,damage and condition as they where assembled and where near as perfect as I could tell. The first 3 samples where printed flawlessly! I'm very happy with my purchase and have recommenced this brand numerous times. I will purchase again when the need arises.
Best bang for your buck 3D printer on the market. There are a ton of upgrades that you can perform to improve your prints down the road. I already referred my friend to buy one and he's loving it too.
This upgrade is much quieter than I expected. All you can hear now is the fans running. Creality should offer this as a part of a standard like an Ender 3 Pro Plus. I would have gone for that right away and saved the minor hassle of the board change out.
I have bought 2 units of CR10s and a CR10 Max. They perform very well and I am happy about the print out. It is reliable and the print outs are stunning. An awesome printer.
Before I bought this, I have a CR10-v2, but for some reasons I want to try resin printing too. Arrived fast, and I love this little machine. The activated carbon filter fan wont work, but I can solve this problem (the one and only yet). Easy to use, easy to level the print bed, and works like a charm. My statue parts are awesome quality now! I print the bigger parts with the cr10-v2, and the smaller more detalied parts (heads, hands, weapons etc) with this resin printer.
I had emailed one of the folks at Creality to confirm that these were the same buildplates that were shipped with the Ender 3 in 2019. These are the removable ones that have the 4 clips holding them on. They are slighty flexable with the fiberglass plate, buildtak sticker on top and 1.5mm thick. I wanted one exactly like the original buildplate that came with my Ender 3 and this is it. Its and excellent buildplate so now I can swap when printing multiple things to keep printing moving along.
I bought it for Ender 5 Plus and it fits perfectly. While the bed temperature was 60 degrees Celsius, the internal temperature was measured at 35 degrees Celsius. (Room temperature was 19 degrees Celsius)
the printer is perfect, my prints are very precise even if I don't level the bed. only flaw: if I stop the print and disconnect the power, the printer does not resume as it should. I enjoyed using it with the Ultimaker Cura software. however, I would like Creality3D to create a magnetic bed.
Fantastic. After upgrade, the only sound I hear is coming from fans.
Forget about the dampers and other mods. This is so great.
This is my first 3D printer, and I was a little worried about setting it up. I was able to follow a video on YouTube and match it up with the instructions and I finished assembly in under an hour. There were a couple things that needed minor tweaking but when I was finally ready to print my first test piece, it worked flawlessly! Well, maybe not flawlessly, but the minor imperfections are something for me to work on. Bottom line is it prints beautifully with almost no extra work! I was able to print a couple tool parts that typically have tight tolerances with no problem.
I bought this upgrade to sort out my bed adhesion, I found it to be so good I have problems getting PLA off it.
it could just be me, I have only had it 2 days. and only had the printer 5 weeks.
A big learning curve for me.
Great parts for my Ender 3. A little more weight, but looking good. :) Great material, same color as my alu extruder.
These red metal nuts are perfect upgrade of original bed leveling nuts. They are not just nice to look at, but are very large and easy to hold and use.
