Ender-3 V2 Unboxing & Installation
This thing is great because it so customizable. I actually had 3 printers before I settled on this and sent the other ones back. I first had the cr10, then the artillery genius and Anycubic Mega S. But they all had problems right out the box besides the cr10 that was just oo big. This Ender ,I feel, is the perfect size. Big enough to print most things but not big where it's overwhelming. The drivers are so silent i never know if its printing or just on. One of the other printers was silent also but the ender takes it to a whole new level. There are endless upgrades of you want to make it print even better. The quality is good or the box, but as with anything, it can get better. The only knock I have on it is the hot end and the tubing. Just kept getting clogs and could barely get though a print until I switch the tubing to the popular one that everyone gets (i forget the name now). I also have a new hot end coming tomorrow. Besides that Birmingham to complain about. Great printer for beginners but also for people that have been in the game for a while and just like to customize things. Plenty of options on this one.
This is the first 3d printer that I have purchased and it has performed extremely well. Setup was straightforward and took maybe 30 minutes. This printer produced excellent quality prints right out of the box after a quick leveling. The printer is incredibly quiet and the loudest thing on it is the power supply fan. I would definitely recommend this printer for anyone looking to get into 3d printing.
I ordered my Ender 3 V2 from the Creality Official Website from the Canadian warehouse. It came in less than a week even though I got a message warning of possible shipping delays. It arrived in great shape with all the parts and tools needed and there was an extra of each size of screw. The instructions are clear enough, but you still have to pay close attention to the diagrams/photos. Contrary to some recent reviews, there were sample files on the memory card, and I was able to print the dog and 3 other small objects with the sample filament. It took me 3 tries and 15 minutes to level the bed. It turns out I was moving the Z-Axis unintentionally. One wish would be to allow me to disable X&Y steppers only. I agree with those who recommend the upgraded springs - my bed levelled with some of the springs barely engaged. Also, I noticed, during assembly, that the x-axis beam was not level (not parallel to the top gantry) If I hadn't stopped and fixed that, I couldn't have levelled the bed, and/or the X-axis would not be perpendicular to the Z. I basically just loosened and retightened the x-axis screws. My second wish would be to lower the Z-axis limit so the springs are more compressed. The steppers are so quiet they are not a factor. The fans are about as loud as a large desktop PC. One last wish, to provide contrast or color adjustments for the LCD. The highlighted choice is hard to see at an off-angle. My first prints have been good to very good, although a couple failed because of my errors. I was even able to pause and change filament when the sample ran out, and the print turned out fine. I don't know why I waited so long to get one of these. A great first 3D printer!
I have just gotten this v2 delivered. After worrying about it being sold out in Canada and pre-order from China I just went for it. And it was total 5days to get here!!! and the tracking app was great!!! well done on the speed!!
Now for actually using it.
I am ecstatic about this 3D printer. This is my first 3d printer, I've been researching and planning to get one for years now and the ender 3 always had a great name and has been on my list for a while. My initial plans were to get an ender 3 pro and buy the silent upgrade board and other upgrades, but then the Ender 3 V2 was released, and I didn't even hesitate to order it after watching the 2 to 3 reviews that were out on youtube at the time.
The printer has been very noob friendly. The white PLA that came with the printer was actually really decent PLA and was easier to work with than the spool I first bought from another brand that took a lot more tweaking to figure out. I'm glad, as I may have felt hopeless had I not had that first great experience. I recommend tightening every bolt pre-installed on the machine during assembly. I also recommend cleaning the build plate with a little bit of rubbing alcohol between each build.
