What?! You need to get it opened up and spend 2 years printing upgrades for it to then try and figure out what to print

I've been on the fence about getting one for ages, finally got one and don't know what to use it for

How much was the import tax ,??
Received mine a few days ago, really fast delivery with DHL. Easy to put together and I've printed a few little bits. Really pleased with it! Now to learn CAD lol. Heat added.

Your the same as me, I’ve been on the fence for about 4 years. I watch and subscribe to quite a few 3d printing channels on YouTube, but I just can’t seem to pull the trigger. I can use CAD and see things round the house constantly I can do, but I just can’t seem to bring myself to get one.

I think if you're considering getting one it's not a case of if you get one, but a case of when, lol. That's how it is for me anyways

Your probably right. I flit though between getting one of these or a Prusa, then i change my mind and can’t justify spending 600 quid on a printer when you can tune one of these in and get the print quality pretty much the same. The thing with fdm printers now is the price point on these isn’t going to get any cheaper without affecting the quality of the prints. What they need to concentrate on now is getting these to just work. They have come a long way don’t get me wrong, but you still need to be quite tech savvy to use them and fix them.
Just a small warning for anyone looking to get this as their first 3D Printer; Ender 3 Pro (and other enders) are excellent machines, but be prepared to work for it. Ender's are budget for a reason, but not for the reason you would expect (i.e. the print quality, which is excellent... eventually!).

This is very much a DIY machine to the extreme; you are expected to construct the machine. This isn't so bad, but the instructions are... shoddy; quick tip, ignore the tiny paper instructions and go straight to the PDF file located on the memory card, but you'll still be scratching your head.

And once built it won't work out of the box very well due to quality control issues from Creality. And this isn't a bad batch, or a handfull of slight issues; there are number of common issues, and it is almost certain you will come across at least one. So with some confidence I will say, they will have issues straight out of the box, some of which will drive you mad to start with; a couple of examples that I had;

1. Mine came with a belt that was too short. I actually thought it was by design and managed to yank it in, but immediately found issues when I started her up, as it slipped due to the high tension I had created. A quick look online notes it is a common issue, which requires a replacement belt or a bodge (using cable ties, which mine still has and works fine!)
2. The Z-axis motor & thread was misaligned, and creates major issues the higher the model gets. It's not immediately obvious when constructed and the machine will run fine, but at high levels, the nozzle starts to hit the model which creates imperfections or dislodge the model. The solution (as with many things on the Ender 3 Pro) is to print a spacer for the motor and it makes the world of difference in prints, and stability. This is a really common issue; if you have any issues locating the thread when assembling, your going to need a spacer

One really annoying thing with Ender 3 Pro is that you have to manually level the bed, which isn't easy task for a novice. It is said that you should only have to level occasionally, which may be true, but I find myself doing it more often than seems normal. It is my biggest complaint, and would be the only titbit that would maybe temp me to go for a more expensive model... but the fact is the price point is so cheap for the Ender 3, there is nothing to tempt me to swap it (yet)

I'm also not a fan of the magnetic bed that comes with the Ender 3, although once again it seems to be due to a uneven bed from factory. A really easy and inexpensive solution is to replace with a glass bed, and actually I found £15 mirror tiles to be perfect in conjunction with Pritt Stick for adhesion which is infantry better than the magnetic bed. I really would advice that any Ender 3 Pro user looks at doing the same

And after all this, you may be put off, but don't be!. It is budget for a reason, but if you willing to put in a bit of work, and deal with the heartache of inevitable failed print, then you will have an awesome 3D printer that competes with the best
