Any structure needs a strong foundation. That's why Ender 3 bed leveling is so important. Learn how to ensure that the all-important first layer is solid. ENDER 3 BED LEVELINGA Solid Foundation The term “bed leveling” is actually a misnomer. You’re not making it level with the ground but placing it so that the nozzle tip is at the same, correct distance over the entire surface of the build surface.

Here are what we experienced with the Ender 5 Plus: It’s Much Bigger Well, pretty obvious, isn’t it?

In all fairness to him, the Creality CR10S Pro was brand new & never used. I was lucky to get a good deal! Collecting the printer, I took it home in the front seat of my car, strapped in almost lovingly. Arriving back, I placed the Creality CR10S Pro on my desk and stopped to...
