Ender 5 Pro Unboxing and Assembling
About Creality Ender 5 Pro 3D Printer upgraded features
Studying the similarities on a surface level, the Creality Ender 5 Pro doesn't appear to be extraordinarily different from its predecessor, but the manufacturer has packed several welcome surprises in this new iteration. Here a spell overview of the differences between the Ender 5 Pro and original Ender 5 3D Printer.
One attribute that is unique to the Ender 5 Pro 3D Printer is the new V4.2.2 silent Mainboard with TMC2208 drivers, allowing for quieter and more precise printing performance. This mainboard has both Marlin 1.1.8 and Bootloader installed and also has thermal runway protection enabled, providing additional protection in case the printer reaches erratically high temperatures.
Metal Extruder Frame
Another new addition to the Creality Ender 5 Pro 3D Printer is a highly durable metal extruder frame. This feature provides stronger pressure while pushing filament through the 3D Printer's nozzle, which the manufacturer claims will bolster the overall printing performance. This upgraded metal extruder kit comes equipped with an adjustable bolt so that users can tweak the pressure of the extruder gear to best fit whichever filament is selected.
New and Improved Filament Tubing
Last but not least, the Creality Ender 5 Pro 3D Printer also includes new and improved filament tubing. The Capricorn Bowden PTFE Tubing has a 1.9mm ± 0.05mm inner diameter, reducing any excess wiggle room and preventing the filament from buckling inside of the tube. The addition of this high-end tubing makes the Creality Ender 5 Pro 3D Printer better suited to print with flexible filaments and other exotic materials.
About Ender 5 Pro
I am new at 3D printing. I new nothing about this when I decided to buy a printer. I searched the internet, I read about the different brands and then I found that the most popular printers are Creality and Prusa. Not knowing anything, I was inclined to choose the Prusa. A friend who already owns both printers, told me I would not regret buying a Creality. And boy was he right.
Originally I wanted something smaller, like the Ender 3. I went for Ender 5 because of the frame structure and because the bed is only moved down while printing and the head does all the movement necessary for printing.
I am very very happy with my printer. Everything went well, from the fast shipping (so nice that Creality has warehouse in Europe for european deliveries), packing, assembly. From the moment I got it, until the first test print it was less then an hour. I doubt you can do that with many 3d printers.
The printer is printing soooo good. It took a few weeks to learn all the tweaks you can do in Cura. Now I am printing models to small and with such level of details that I am happy I did not choose another brand.
I got a BL Touch sensor (also from Creality) but haven't installed it yet. I'm still happy with the manual levelling. Except the first days, when I did not level it correctly, once I did level it as it should, I only had to re-level it only one time. Search thingiverse for a test 3d model for the bed leveling and print that. You will now instantly where you need to do adjustments.
I would recommend this printer to anyone and I would buy it again in a heart beat.
Great printer right out of the box, took 45 minutes from the time the delivery came to the time it was printing. every thing worked as promised if I have any complaint it is the cable routing some of the cables seem a little short, but that does not affect how it works. the software is easy to use and tweak for different filaments although a preset for petg would be nice. I have had it a little over a week and I have printed with it every day and have only have to re-level the bed once. Great experience would definitely buy another Creality printer.
This was my second 3D printer. The first was supposed to be for beginners. Didn’t work and couldn’t fix it. The Ender 5 Pro worked right away. The only thing i added was a strain relief for the heated bed cabling and a roll of 6”(15cm) blue painter’s tape for the bed. Enjoying my time working from home with my new Ender 5 Pro making stuff for the house. I even made pieces for breathing masks. Now going to try PETG.
I have previously used more expensive brand printers and been left unimpressed by the quality and ease of use. Bought an Ender 5 Pro because of the Ender branding, Large Community, and Great Reviews. Admittedly I was skeptical when I placed the order but took the plunge.
The delivery was super fast, Creality have put as much effort into packaging the printer as they have engineering it, which give the unboxing and assembly a real premium feel, the machine itself is very well made, assembly is a breeze.
Instructions could be a little bit more detailed in regards to leveling the bed and running your first print but check out the files on the micro SD card and if that doesn't help, google is your friend.
After leveling the bed and running my first test print, it's safe to say i am blown away by the quality and finish of prints straight out of the box!!
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.
