My first few days with the Creality Ender 3

  My amazing wife bought me a 3D printer for Christmas this year (along with some other dope stuff!). She bought me the Creality Ender 3, which I think is the best ~$200 3D printer on the market. I was eager to see if I got a 3D printer, so I was up at 6:30 am on Christmas morning READY to rip into presents!

FAQ

Filament not stick on hot bed ?

For newcomers,this is the most common problem.Do not worry,you can solve it easily.Generally,the distance between nozzle and platform is too far or near.So rotary the knob under platform to adjust the distance between the nozzle and platform again,at a piece of A4 paper distance or less) .

The display shows "Min temp"?

This happens for the following reasons: 1. Thermistor port of nozzle is not plugged into the motherboard above, or poor contact; 2. Thermistor port of nozzle is broken, you need to replace the spare thermistor.

The display shows "MAX temp"?

This happens for the following reasons:

1.Thermistor port of nozzle screw is locked tightly, cause the temperature can not be sensing;

2.Thermistor port of nozzle is broken, you need to replace the spare thermistor.

Axis movement is not normal ?

Please check axis lines and limit lines whether the one-to-one correspondence,whether loose.When you check the extruder motor,you must preheat nozzle over 185℃.

Circles not round,Lines not touching?

If X/Y belt is loose,you can find circles are not round,Lines not touching when printing.Tighten all belts as far as possible.

How to level creality Creality Ender 3 ?

  1. Move the nozzle so that it’s positioned over the left corner of the bed. A half inch or so from both sides is a good location.
  2. Slide the paper between the nozzle and the bed. If it doesn’t fit, drop the corner until it does.
  3. Once the paper is able to slide under the nozzle, very slowly raise the corner with the adjuster. Remember: Clockwise moves the bed up. As you do this, gently slide the paper back and forth. The moment you feel even the slightest resistance to your moving the paper, stop turning the knob. That corner is (almost) ready to go.
  4. Do the same for the other three corners of the build plate. Always advance the hot end to a new corner slowly. This will prevent damage to the build plate in case the nozzle starts to drag. If this occurs, simply lower the next corner (before starting the leveling process) to make some room.
  5. After you’ve adjusted each corner once, go back and check the four corners again. You may have to do further adjustments to get all four correct.

Its what I was hoping for.

Bought the End 3 back in march, when it came in, I set it up, ran a test, everything went great. I've been making models since then. I've had a few issues but that was me trying out different settings to see what I can do and what it can do and I have been getting better with it. I've found by using the Ultimaker Cura program and plugging the printer to my computer has been doing really great for me. I've haven't done any upgrades to the printer and I do not see to do so at this time as it's been doing what I was hoping it would do. Great job, Thanks.

Great 3D Printer

I received my Ender 3 about two weeks ago and it arrived in perfect condition. After carefully assembling it and leveling the bed following some YouTube videos, I printed my first Benchy! It printed outstanding, with nice quality! Since then, each of my prints have printed flawlessly. Needless to say, I am very happy with this purchase and Creality has designed and manufactured a great printer at a very reasonable price! The key to success is to carefully assemble it using the great resources online and on YouTube. There is a huge population of Creality users online and most are more than happy to help.

Love my Ender 3 Pro

I studied reviews from Amazon and 8 or 9 other sites, so many people say I bought brand XXX and I wished I had bought another Ender, or my friends all told me to buy ad Ender and I bought XXX brand and was sorry I bought the other brand.
While this is my 1st 3 D printer, I cannot imagine how another brand would be better, of course if I spent 500.00 instead of 239.00, I would hope another brand would be better, but from reading so many reviews and my experience so far, I doubt it, I bet it would take 700.00 to purchase a better printer.... PS, dump the Slicer they provide and use CURA 4.6.1, it supports STL files (and many others) which are the predominant free file format for printing objects, I never could get the supplied splicer to convert stl files to enders gcode, took me a few hours to find a great slicer fix, thanks Cura and Youtube :)

Ender 3

I've got to say I was worried after ordering the ender 3. I read of all kinds of issues out of the box. I took some time to level the bed...then re level the bed... Then relevel the bed. Now I've got so much confidence in it I can start a print and walk away. I've only had 2 failures out of 20 or so prints of all sizes and complexity.

Honestly wowed for the product for the price. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is because I have a warped bed that's low in the middle. As long as I stick to the middle I'm fine.

Over all I couldn't be happier and I look forward to continuing to upgrade this printer.

Highly recommend.
The pics are my first print. Ran out of test filament and switched before the end.
