CR-10 V3 3D Printer - E3D Direct Drive Extruder 3D Printer
- Direct Titan extruder: The direct extruder is right above the hot end with little space in between, which enables the extruder to push the filament directly into the nozzle. Since it minimizes the distance for filament traveling to the hot end, the direct extruder is more helpful and reliable when producing 3D prints with flexible soft filaments like TPU and ABS. Furthermore, the biggest benefit for using direct extruder is easier filament retraction thus avoiding filament stringing and oozing during printing.
- Filament Sensor
-Upgraded Silent Motherboard ：It comes with the TMC2208 ultra-mute drive, performing stable and reducing noise.
-Upgraded 24V/350W Mean Well power supply, stable supplying ability, and firm printing.

About CR-10 V3 3D Printer Review
It took me a couple hours to put the v3 together - I'm graduating from an Ender3 - so I'm quite pleased with the increase in area that I can now print. The v3 is considerably quieter than the Ender 3. I'm quite pleased with the entire experience. The video showing assembly helped greatly!
What I'm looking for is something similar for addition of the BL-Touch which is an upgrade I'm extremely interested in. I've seen the video for the v2. Where can I get the FW that supports BL-Touch? Where do I connect the BL-Touch to the assembly? A video similar to the v2 would help greatly.
Received the printer in just a week after the order. Incredibly simple to assemble. The printer came with all the tools needed as well as very simple instructions. I took my time checking all the pre assembled components making sure all the hardware was tight so it took me a little longer. Didn't find a single nut or bolt that wasn't torqued properly so I feel good about that.
For people in the US, make sure you flip the little switch on the control box to 115v before you try to turn it on!
The software that comes with it is easy to use, however I chose not to use it and downloaded the latest version of Ultimaker Cura. There isnt a V3 printer on there, however the V3 is just a V2 with direct drive standard so just use the V2 printer and it works perfectly.
The bed is warped which was to be expected based off all the reviews I've seen online. Its good enough for small prints in one area but I dont think it would work well if you used the entire bed. You'll either need to replace the bed with something better or install a BLTouch with is 100% worth the money and something I think Creality needs to add as a standard item on their printers.
As for printing, it works exactly as expected, actually, it's better than expected. Im unbelievably pleased with the results and would HIGHLY recommend this printer to newcomers and veterans alike. I cant see anyone being unhappy with this investment.
I’m not an expert 3D printer by any means, only having a hand-me-down monoprice unit from a good friend. After spending the better part of a year learning to use that machine, I decided it was time to upgrade. I had been bouncing around between Prusa and Artillery and just happened to be browsing this site when the V3 (aka Titan V2 according to the manual) was made available, and managed to place an order before it sold out.
My unit shipped a couple days later and took about a week to cross the country. UPS dropped it (literally) at my door, but thankfully it made it okay. I did have to tighten one bolt because the mount plate was loose. You can search YouTube for that if you need it.
It went together pretty easily. I didn’t have any trouble following the (minimal) manual that comes with it. All of the parts were very neatly grouped into bags and every single tool you need to assemble it is included.
Thus far, I’ve only printed a couple things, and while I certainly need to dial in some settings, I’m blown away by the results so far. The thing is so quiet. The fan in the control box is louder than the printer itself. I found it a little tricky getting the filament into the extruded for the first time, being unfamiliar with the E3D extruder. Once I figured out to unscrew the bolt, relieving pressure on the spring so I could manually push the black plastic piece in the direction of the arrow, it was easy. I’m using Hatchbox True White PLA and have had nothing but success. Again, I’m no expert, this is only my second printer and the first I actually purchased for myself. I don’t have much to go by, but thus far I’m happy.
