I absolutely love it! The quality is better than expected and the print size is HUGE! As my first 3D printer I love it! It's mostly assembled so it's only a few screws. If you know what you're doing 15 minutes to build. As my first 3D printer it took my 45 minutes to make sure I did it correctly. Love it. Once I get the hang of it I'll eventually try for larger prints.

Ok. I tried an Anet A8 from Ebay. Let me put it this way: If I had just thrown £50 down the drain, I would be £20 better off. Utter junk. Then I bought and Ender 3 CLONE from Ebay. it seems that some people will not learn! Finally, I bit the bullet and bought an actual Ender 3 on Amazon. I am glad I bought the other two because it showed just how bad things can be before you get the item you really should have bought in the first place. So, let me quickly start with how it arrives. In a VERY well thought out and arranged box. The quality is in a different league to the copies, so don't waste a second looking at those. Came with everything nicely labelled and spare bolts also. Good tool kit. Now the assembly. OK, it is a doddle BUT the manual was virtually unreadable. I just looked on YouTube and followed one of the guides online. It took about 30 minutes in total from box to running. So, is it worth it? Hell yeah! It is a very well designed machine and print quality is exceptional. Downsides? Plenty. First job is print yourself the many, many printable modifiactions, starting with the main board top fan cover. Then the 3 cable chains to stop the cables snagging. Really Creality, you could have thrown them in! Oh - the micro SD slot. Perfect if you are a wizard and have magic powers. For the rest of us GRRRRRRR! right at the lowest edge of teh front of the machine and a pain to reach. The cut out in the panel is larger than the micro sd slot. So, it is very easy to put the micro sd card in ABOVE the actual slot. And when you do that it falls inside onto the main board. Only 3 screws top remove the top and retrieve BUT power off of course and there is a rsik of disturbing something. So mod number 2 is to get a micro SD to nornal SD cable and print out the holder that clamps next to the screen. Talking of the screen, it is bright and clear. Menu is logical and very easy to navigate. Then there is the heat plate surface. It is GREAT for adhesion - a little too great though. It does have some flexing, so getting stuff that you printed off is not such a big deal when it cools a little, but the thin outlines it does before an actual print seem to stick like something to a blanket. Think of blood under your thumnails and a lot of bad langauage and you will get the idea! An upgraded heat plate is a must. I have opted for the TFT touchscreen and associated SKR 32 bit main board, plus the aluminium extruder - mainly so I can use the old stuff in my Ender clone that will end up being ALMOST an Ender 3 that I can use for a spare. If you have used a Prusa clone or the many A8's out there, you are in for a treat. Think of an old ropey Fiat Panda compared to a new BMW X5. It is that big a deal. Now, if you have never 3d printed, it is easy BUT S-L-O-W-W-W-W-W. It took 5 hours to print 25 chain links at draft quality! They came out fine and are on the machine now, but the speed is just like watching paint grow or grass dry - you know what I mean. Painfully slow, but also very hypnotic. Learn about overhangs! Just beacuse the software says it will print does not mean it will. You simply cannot have a 10cm bit of PLA sticking out without support. Do some homework. I sugggest watching Mixchael Laws' youtube vids on the Ender 3. Very smart guy, very good teacher and you will learn much and save lots. Don't think about it - buy it!

Perfect printer to get started with few upgrades will be needed but can be done over time, some set up will be required. Produces good prints. Uses 1.75mm filament pla but to use petg or abs you will need to upgrade ptfe tube or install a micro swiss all metal hot end. Just remember when you test the motors upon unboxing and assembling to preheat you hotend to 185c before trying the extruder motor or the extruder will not work... Update. I would highly recommend replacing the heat bed springs as the ones fitted are useless as you will be messing around leveling the bed for every print, i have replaced my springs with the stronger yellow springs found on amazon and i have compleated 5 prints without having to messabout with leveling the bed.

Before I start my review I would like to state that I am a complete novice with 3d printers, so if you have some experience particularly at assembling then this may not all be relevant! Let's start at assembly; having read on reviews here that it was a simple assembly of a few parts, I thought it would be achievable. It took 4 hours! Most definitely not easy, and I recommend you follow a YouTube video rather than the harder to follow enclosed assembly booklet. It is vital that you align everything properly and level the bed properly, again, follow a YouTube video. When you have managed all of that you are ready to load your filament and print. There were no instructions enclosed on how to do that, so yet again, YouTube it! There is a thumb drive included which also encompasses a mini SD card. There are 3 projects on there, plus trouble shooting etc. Please bare in mind, that 3d printing does take hours, and that is true across the range, that I've looked at. The print quality is very good and from what I've heard from YouTubers it is a quality similar to more expensive printers. To actually print things not pre loaded on SD card, you need to convert to Gcode. And everyone recommend Cura software. You can not do this on a Chrome book, it's not compatible with the software. I have been recommended by a friend, who is an engineer, that I but a raspberry pi B+, which attaches to the printer through an Ethernet cable. The B+ works by talking to the printer and splicing the STL files, it also connects via WiFi, so makes printing easier. So, bottom line, much harder to assemble than I was led to believe, and it will take trial and error and tweaking, but a very good printer at a very good price.

I love the fact I only had to wait 1 day for this to arrive. Fantastically well packaged, well laid out. I had iit put together in less than 40 minutes (yes i did time myself) and after 10 minutes of reading a tutorial online (no actual manuals with the product shame really) I was printing out my first test piece. flawless. I have had a few fails, but they were always user error. Just read the lables on your spools of PLA and your good to go, I also purchased a glass bed, so tip is raise your temperature another 5 degrees and your golden.

Excellent printer. Enjoyed building this. There was a problem with one of the parts missing a bracket but customer service was very good at sorting a replacement. The printing is very good. Bed adhesion is good and had no problems. I use 185 for nozzle and 50 for the bed and had no problems. There is thousands of products to print and I use thingverse a lot as well as various other sites. This is a quality product for a good price. Thinking of buying another one to do bigger projects.

First 3d printer i have used and decided on this one after some research. Had a small budget and this fell into the price range. WOW. what a machine. Currently printed about 6 or so things and the quality is amazing. The instructions are pretty useless to be honest but there are several in depth assembly guides on YouTube that will be required as the initial assembly is quite fiddly. Once assembled though everything else is a breeze. Getting used to the software takes some time and watching some tutorials (again good ones on YouTube) but once you have your head around that it is magic. If you have not tried 3d printing i would recommend this to everyone.

This is my first 3D printer and I am now hooked! If I could I would buy another one as it's very rewarding to just print the many modifications (as shown in the image). If you can afford to then also buy the Creality silent motherboard 4.2.7 as the stock board is a little noisy (easy to change). The print speed and quality out of the box is excellent and only took around 2 hours to build using the printed instructions (once deciphered) although there are many videos online, 'Teaching Tech' is very good and has helped me through most installations and mods.

If you are new to 3D printing like me, it will take some getting use to learning what programs etc to use and adjusting the settings to get the best prints. But once you do, it works well and you will be happy with it.

After buying a 3080 cnc pro from ebay i didnt expect to much from this Chinese machine tbh but i couldn't be happier with it its a brilliant bit of kit and works perfect i watched a YouTube vid to set it up and first print was exceptional i expect to need a mechanical engineering degree to set it up but this isnt the case well worth the money in my opinion and if you have older kids this would make a really good Xmas present and a very good educational experience really happy with it
