Ender 3 Pro is on sale on Amazon rn
I use the CR-10S but I've heard the ender is pretty ok for entry level. And no you don't need a top spec pc. You could honestly use integrated graphics if you had to.
Most are relatively small. Here’s the one I’m currently using if you can spare some room on an end table.
Official Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer with Removable Build Surface Plate and UL Certified Power Supply 220x220x250mm [link]
It is a fantastic printer for the price, but be prepared to do some set up and trouble shooting. If you like to DIY upgrades I would strongly suggest an auto level for this machine. I have had the hardest time leveling this compared to any other printer.
Hey everybody, I'm relatively new to the 3D printing scene as far as the printers themselves are concerned. I've been looking around for a sub $500 printer and I found the Creality Ender 3 Pro on Amazon for ~$260. Wanted to know if anyone has one and what they think of it or if there are suggestions for others.
Any feedback is helpful and much appreciated and the link to the printer is below. Thanks!

It looks like the sale ended but in my opinion this is the best choice
Comgrow Ender 3 Pro on Amazon
Prime day is coming up soon so you might wait and see if they have it on sale but it’s unlikely.
Thanks! Any idea what the difference is between the different versions on Amazon? Did you just get the one with the most reviews?
Also, what's the advantage of the glass bed?
Best advice I have is to keep the Comgrow seller page up on Amazon. I checked maybe 20 minutes ago, none in stock, and then 10 minutes later, seven Ender 3 Pros became available, and then sold out again within 10 minutes. I know it’s a pain to wait and wait, but I’ve spent basically the whole day trying to get one and that’s the only thing that’s worked and seems reliable! (Plus, reviews for Creality customer support are horrible, but customers who have had issues with Creality say Comgrow have been really helpful and responsive).
Here’s a link to the one I was able to get:
I paid a bit above the original price (I paid $307, tax included/ free shipping), but if you’re really set on getting it like I was, I hope this helps! :)
This is the printer I have and I love it, it’s slightly older but it’s affordable and does a great job, I’ve done full scale helmets with it as well, sold em for 250$ each one practically paid for the printer by itself. Deff recommend checking it out man
I've been seeing people rave about this one on here and have been looking into it myself. From what I've read since it's "some assembly required" you get to know the machine better and it lets you make component level upgrades to make it a better printer on the cheap. I really want one I just hesitate because I'll end up going all out and devoting too much time and money to it. I'm still just in the study and learn phase right now
You don't have to create it. There are already several on the Internet
Amazon has the Ender 3 Pro sold by comgrow. [link]
I don’t have experience buying from Creality. I personal brought by Ender 3 Pro last year from Amazon.
Comgrow brand on Amazon
Comgrow Ender 3 Pro
Obviously they have increased the price now because of the Covid outbreak and the sudden want and need for them. It is unfortunate that some companies are taking advantage of this situation.
The Ender 3 vs the pro is $60+ for upgraded parts - It’s questionable to some if it’s worth the upgrade. But I’m enjoying mine (Ender 3 pro). The amazon link I bought from.
I haven’t used blender yet for anything 3d printing related. Mostly swiping files off of thingiverse and the free version of Fusion 360 - I cannot recommend them enough!
I have changed out the nozzle and checked the filament, but I'm not sure what is wrong still. The print will come out initially, but barely. For reference, I am using the Ender3 Pro. ([link])
Printing at 235 degrees for the nozzle, 75 for the bed. Adherence to the bed is fine so far, so I have that ruled out
But no one who's chicken you could look after from time to time.
If you want to start the 3d-printing hobby on the cheap, most recommend the Ender family of printers, but I'm partial to a Prusa. Way less hassle.
I think having a 3D printer is great, not only for these types of projects but many more. -- AMA I have all of these things and have used fusion for projects in the past.
Buy it on Amazon from the seller Comgrow if you can. Good price and they are on point with the customer service.
If you are patient, they go on sale for a good discount every now and then
I got mine (The Ender 3 Pro ) for about $200 at microcenter but I see them go on sell for less pretty often, you can probably get a good deal on Black Friday.
Ender 3 Pro on Amazon for $259.97
Its the Lack table, they're like $10, and also coincidentally fit an Ender 3 perfectly.
The Lack Table 3d printer enclosure is pretty common.
Creality Ender 3 Pro ($224 with Amazon Prime):
White 1.75mm PLA filament ($19):
Black 1.75mm PLA filament ($18):
For those who are looking for the model that I used, here is the link! It comes with both a 1:110 and 1:96, I used the former.
Honestly, I say if you can, print it out! :) It will be a fun little project. I used the ender 3 pro which runs around 250 USD. As for the plastic and everything else related to printing, u/vonHindenburg pretty much got it all! For PLA, I used 3 rolls: black, white, and a metal color. They were all either 20 or 25 UDS each. As for time, on average each print I ran was 6 hours and I printed about 5-10 runs. In other words, it took me one week to complete this while printing throughout the day and leaving bigger prints (> 5 hours) printing overnight. I separated prints based on colors and sub separated them based on similar geometry.
I kept the printer in my closet to avoid any changes in the environment like doors opening and the ACs turning on. In my opinion, the most crucial part of having a successful print was making sure the bed was level (linked a tutorial that I used). After each change in filament/plastic, I made sure to relevel the bed to account for any differences in how the plastics behave (not sure if this step is necessary though). I also avoided removing the magnetic table since that would also introduce some new errors to the leveling.
As for failures, I definitely had some as vonHindenburg mentioned. In total, I had maybe 10 prints with multiple components. I had 2 failures. One failure was a large one that I left running overnight. Because of this, I couldn't tell what caused it to fail, but it did fail very early in the print. The second failure was when I had a 5-hour piece disconnect from the bed at 99%! My guess was that the bed was not hot enough. I think I had it at default (50C) instead of the recommended from its packaging.
But again, if you have the funds, it's totally worth it! It's a larger sum to pay, but you get the experience of 3D printing, the capability to 3D print other fun things, and you appreciate your work more!
Edit: Oh, and as for post processing, I glued some pieces together, painted the logo with acrylic paints from this tutorial (didn't use the sprays), and am planning to paper print the NASA logos and laminate them onto the body.
Yeah I was watching yt reviews all night! Leaning towards this one [link]
how do i know if i have a 32 bit motherboard? i bought this in july 2021, so yes it's recent.
Is there some info in the menu that i can get infos from?
i bought this one, btw. if this is of any help.
Thanks.Please tell me what more can i tell to you.
A great commonly recommended printer is an Ender 3 Pro. I have one. but be warned leveling the bed can be a bitch for a newbie. So you may want to buy a extra surface. I would also stay away from glass surfaces as a newbie. That magnetic one I linked you to is the same one that comes with the Ender 3 Pro I linked. It's magnetic so doesn't slide around, may not do damage or at least as much to the nozzle compared to other materials if it hits it, and its flexibility makes it easy as fuck to get prints off of. Some people prefer glass because of how smooth it is but unless you tack it down somehow it's gonna slide around. The glass plates are also very tricky to level on the Ender 3 Pro because of how thick they are so there's another reason I recommend the magnetic one. As for filament, if you wanna do PLA which is probably the most common, I order these for basic colors. The Ender 3 Pro does come with white PLA but it's a very small amount compared to a 1KG spool.

Wasn't the basic i was looking at
Hi, completely new to 3D printing, and looking for a printer to start. Budget is <= $1000, I live in the United States, and I can assemble it myself if it comes with good instructions, soldering is not a problem. I've been looking at the Creality Ender 3 Pro since I've seen a few cool prints done with it (namely this and this). Any guidance is appreciated!
Kit: Sure, experienced with electronics and soldering
Uses: looking to print mechanical keyboard parts (cases, keycaps, etc) and anything else I might need to print parts for.
I'm currently looking at a few different printers and most are from Creality. The Ender 3 and Ender 3 pro specifically are what I'm going for. What's the best place to actually buy one though? There's a ton of different sites with different prices and it's pretty overwhelming.
There's the one from eBay supposedly direct from the seller for $237
Amazon from Comgrow (?) for $279
And straight from Creality (I think) for $259
I'm leaning towards buying directly from the seller because I've read some things about the warranty not being fulfilled directly from creality if you buy from another source.
Other ones I'm looking at are the da Vinci 1.0 pro, regular Ender 3, or any other really. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s one on Amazon that’s legitimate.
This one? [link]
Is this the right one? I see a lot of different ender packages. [link]
Comgrow Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer with Removable Build Surface Plate and UL Certified Power Supply 220x220x250mm [link]
I had this one in mind.
Budget: Up to 500
Kit: Kits are fine - as long as there are instructions
What do I wish to print: Misc things around the house, repair stuff, adapters, virtual reality things like frankenquest mods and gun stocks, etc.
I've had my eye on the Ender 3 Pro and the Artillery Sidewinder X1 V4... The ender 3 pro seems to be a fav around here, as well as amazon which is my preferred purchasing place. I'm guessing people here will recommend the Ender 3 Pro here, and was wondering what are some must have upgrades, as well as other "really want" instead of needed upgrades... Such as a glass bed, auto leveler, etc... I see there are two versions of the bltouch auto leveler on amazon, but I don't know what that means... I'm coming from a lulzbot mini 1 which uses 2.85mm polylite PLA filament which would be great if I could reuse that stock with the Ender 3 Pro...
i found the Pro on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GYRQVYV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Oh sorry! I think we just got the regular Enders. Here’s a pro one on amazon
And this is the one we bought:
The Comgrow Ender 3 Pro is currently in stock on Amazon . They are a very reputable vendor.
Happy to help
Also the recommended places to buy one are under the Comgrow brand on Amazon or through Tiny Machines 3D.
The initial reviews of the Prusa Mini are quite positive, unfortunately the printer has quite the lead time and new orders are estimated to be shipping in early June 2020 as of the 3rd of February 2020. Upside is that any issues with the printer should be resolved by then. If you are happy to wait then it would be a good choice.
If not prepared to wait I would recommend the Ender 3 Pro over the Ender 3 solely because it has a Mean Well certified power supply and the stock ones on the Ender 3 can be a bit dodgy. They do have issues with quality control, to mitigate that I would recommend buying from Amazon under the Comgrow brand or from Tiny Machines 3D who test all the machines they sell before sending them out. There is also an Ender 3/Pro user guide that specifies recommended mods, common issues and other information.
Ender 3 Pro which you can purchase from Amazon or Tiny Machines 3D who test all the machines they sell.
You could look at a resin printer like the Elegoo Mars or Anycubic Photon which are great for high detail prints but they need to be in an unoccupied and well ventilated room when printing. For more information read the subreddit wiki guide here.
Hey, my birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I was trying to think of something to ask for when a 3D printer crossed my mind. I've always thought they were pretty cool and I have a bunch of ideas for stupid little stuff to print out.
The only issue is that I know absolutely nothing about them and what I should be looking for in one or even if it's worth it for me to get one anyway. I don't mind having to put one together myself since it looks like that's the case with a lot of them after a quick Amazon search (very precise, I know).
My budget is under $300 and I'm in the US. I did find this one and it looks like it's pretty deece but want the experts to give me an educated opinion on it. [It's this one right here](https://www.amazon.com/Comgrow-Creality-Printer-Upgrade-Certified/dp/B07GYRQVYV?ref_=Oct_BSellerC_6066127011_1&pf_rd_p=471a90b9-8a34-5dd9-a6f0-17598d2f0fae&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=6066127011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=P83BAX28P3Y3BW4VJ6YZ&pf_rd_r=P83BAX28P3Y3BW4VJ6YZ&pf_rd_p=471a90b9-8a34-5dd9-a6f0-17598d2f0fae)
I just plan on using it to print out cool stuff others post online but may take a crack on designing my own stuff eventually. Nothing too big or fancy. Like I said before, I know what 3D printers are but that's about it, lol. I'm just hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.
Finally started messing around with TPU. Been having really good luck with it printing with a 0.8mm nozzle.
Did have a lot of trouble with the filament change though. Trying different cura plug-ins, it just dropping in and gouging the existing print after the filament change. I ended up following CHEP's tutorial but still had problems. Big fix was to use cura's built in "Pause at height" plug-in, but after changing the filament, while still paused, homing the printer before restarting, and that seemed to do the trick.
Absolutely. The Ender 3 is FANTASTIC. It's fast and has a fantastic level of detail. Are you trying out any particular settings or going with one of the default profiles in Cura?
This should be any gamer's first printer. It's my 2nd and so far the only thing I've seen that comes even close would be a Prusia, but those babies run $700 minimum.
