Larger print volume than Ender 3. Also, much more solid, frame.
Will it arrive by October 31st?

Yep, ender 3 can be got for cheaper and as a owner of an 3 pro, if i was beginner i would probably recommend the ender 5 over the 3 purely because it is the same performance but with a bigger build plate.
As far I'm concerned, the plate is the same, only Z axis travel is bigger, hence the bigger volume. X and Y are the same.
The point is it appears to be overpriced, just like every other novelty. I guess it will fall below 200 soon

Multitude of Useful Applications
3D printing technology is utilized in many fields. One of them is medicine. 3D printers such as the Zortrax M200 create models of hearts and other organs as training aids for surgeons. Such a printer was also used to create the first winch that facilitates the procedure of varicose vein removal. These are just a handful of examples from one field. Another field which is aware of the potential of 3D printing is the automotive industry. The technology allows for rapid prototyping of not only elements of the body, but also of individual components. The future of 3D printing in manufacturing cars is looking brighter and brighter. Experts predict that it will be possible to easily print spare parts, personalize your car and increase the speed of production.

Industrial Powerhouse
A 3D printers can also be the basis of significant economizing in manufacturing plants. Bosch uses Zortrax 3D printers in its plant to create spare parts for machines as well as solutions which facilitate work. 3D printing is becoming indispensable in R&D departments and design departments. Wherever the technology is introduced, it accelerates work and cuts down costs.

3D printing is useful to architects for creating mockups and to mechanics for creating tools. It has found a place in media houses for manufacturing personalized promo gadgets. It’s also a wonderful tool for start-ups when they need to create prototypes of casing or even the casings themselves in low-volume production. 3D printing offers a chance to people who want to start their own business as well. You can use it as a basis and build your business around it: make 3D printed models on demand or earn money through printing specific projects.

Straight copy and paste job but hopefully you get the idea...

I'm thinking about getting one for things that are broken or missing on some toys, like Transformers. Repairing things in general would be what I'd be thinking about. Stuff that's impossible or just very hard or expensive to buy otherwise. It's one of those things you'd find uses for once you have it really.

I have a shed full of tools that I don't use on a daily basis. That doesn't mean there's no use for them, they're there when needed. This is another tool.

Not that long ago people thought computers had no practical use in the household.

I'll give one example here: I was installing new wiper seals into a pair of Fox MTB forks and found them nearly impossible to do without the proper tool. Sadly, this is quite expensive for a job that you only do very infrequently, but a friend was kind enough to print me up a plastic version of it. No, it won't take the abuse of the proper tool, but it did the trick and saved me £50!

Also, as a cyclist, I love this: http://gpxtruder.xyz/

(Stick in a gpx trace of a ride you've done and print a 3d model of it. Makes for a cool wall display)

I’ve just printed off a laptop stand for my desk (a vertical stand to hold several laptops), I’ve printed off a part to amend the wireless charger in my BMW so that it now fits my iPhone 8 Plus, I’ve printed out a storage container to store bits and bobs in the bathroom cupboard, I printed a case for my raspberry pi 4. On top of all that getting the kids interested in doing some 3D modelling and slicing is better than some of the other things they may be getting up to.

It doesn’t get constant use but I think there’s a place for it in a house full of tech interested adults and inquisitive children.

Like you I was unsure it would be useful at home, however I bought one for my company while I was doing a research project, such that I could mock up parts and check fit before ordering ceramic items to be made that cost hundreds of pounds each plus tooling, so it was important to get it right. We also used it to create items customers could physically hold and play with at trade shows and the like. Oh, and making case mounts and brackets etc.

However I've found that since that project was completed and the printer was not being used very often, it's had more use as a personal item since...
I made new clips for my broken double glazing, where the old ones had become brittle and snapped off. You cannot buy the parts... Certainly cheaper than new windows when they are otherwise good. They won't last quite as long as the originals, but I can always print more.
I made a model heart for my now ex to aid her explaining to her patients about their condition.
I've made pretty durable caribeners for hanging things (I've tested 20kg on one).
I've made several models and ornaments, including 3d versions of his company logo for a friend and various other gifts and trinkets.
I've made cookie cutters for the kids, that you wouldn't be able to buy...

Tbh I don't use it that often, and I bought mine when 640 with a laser engraving head and 3d scanninh (which I've never actually used either of the other functions more than twice), was 'cheap', and I'd still say that after four years, it's paid for itself in that time.

I would say that it's a want more than a need, but like any hobby, there is an associated cost and learning curve. At this price for a fairly decent entry, I would say it's well worth the money.

I would strongly suggest putting it in a box or other enclosure, to control dust and maintain a consistent temperature with no breezes throughout the print. I have mine in a small greenhouse tent thing, and it massively improved my print success rate.

you copy and paste about industrial machines not the one is posted here you just did not get it
Can you print rude stuff
The 5 has the same print area as the 3 other than height, it just has a more stable frame, the 5 plus is the one with a bigger print area but costs double this deal.

Yes there is, only parts you need to buy are the metal parts & electronics.
Is TomTop safe for this kind of purchase? If the product is faulty on arrival, has missing pieces, or becomes defective, who can I go to? Would Creality cover this, or would it need to be TomTop? I'm very interested, but I'm not sure if I should pay for the extra 40% (£90!!!!) to get have it Fulfilled By Amazon... It'll be my first 3D printer so don't want to part money to some dodgey site, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, or at least most of the components required can be 3D printed. Check out the RepRap project. It's been around for years.

Probably not, because it already exists. You can get ABS and PLA printers with multiple nozzles to print in multiple colours but there are also full colour printers that use a colour-absorbing PLA filament and colour it with inkjet cartridges as they print, and then there are really expensive industrial ones that print with powdered materials.

It's available to people in the UK and it's cheaper than buying from anywhere else, therefore it's a hot UK deal.

These are made in China so they're going to have to be imported into the UK somewhere along the line. You can either order it directly yourself or effectively pay someone else £90 to import it for you.

I have also used it and can confirm that if you think this is cheap Chinese crap you were using it wrong. There's a steep learning curve with 3D printing and you have to be willing to put the time in to learn about splicing, printer settings and tweak everything until it's working properly.

I'd recommend an Ender 3 as a great starter 3D printer - they're about £130-150, so a good bit cheaper than this one, but basically the same except the 5 has a more stable build and can print higher objects, so with the Ender 3 if you don't get into it at least you haven't spent as much money. The print quality is absolutely fine if you print slowly with thin layers - to get better you'd have tp spend £600+.
Follow some guides on YouTube to get it setup and calibrated and learn the basics and then you can start printing out things other people have designed on Thingiverse - anything you like the look of or think is useful - and then you can move on to designing your own things in AutoCad.

Unless you're careless with how you dispose of waste, nothing from a 3D printer should end up in a landfill - the filaments used are recyclable or even compostable in the right conditions.
As for what people use them for - anything. I've printed -
Dozens of little clips of various sizes for cable management in my living room and study
A pen and eraser holder that clips onto the side of my whiteboard
A soldering iron stand
A set of little drawers for electrical components (to organise resistors, etc.)
Wall mounts for my Oculus Rift sensors
A replacement camera gimbal for a drone that crashed
A set of 5.25" - 3.5" drive bay adapters to mount hard drives in the optical drive bays in my PC case
A mount to attach my SD card reader to the bottom of my desk
Some replacement weights for the bottom of a blind
Some photography backdrop mounts
Some replacement corner brackets for a garden gazebo/party tent that blew down this summer (I couldn't find replacements for less than the cost of a new gazebo but the 3D printed ones used about £6 worth of material for all four, and they turned out stronger than the original ones).
And lots more - but basically all stuff that I needed that I could customise to my needs and/or ended up cheaper than buying them.

For me I see it as a tool.
Like all other tools they are great when needed!
I need to make a spare or replace part that I can’t easily get hold or of is expensive then I just 3D print one!
Like to mod stuff then again print off the mods.
Make toys and puzzles for little girl.
Have interest in making things and tinkering great for that also..

Might not see apparent at first to why want one as I was the same until I get to demo on at work and was like I need one of these devices!
The demonstrators printing offs a working nut and bolt and my mind was blown!
My printer has even made me money back to making to mod parts for VR head sets.

To make things to personalise your home, to make things that fix broken things in your home, to make useful things that make everyday life more efficient. Also it is a hobby, people make rc vehicles and also just wanna print stuff because it is cool, they want to learn to code they like fixing a problem when something goes wrong. The list is endless.
Your question could be applied to anything in life, "why buy a bath when it is going to end up in landfill after you replace it", "why buy x item when it is going to end up in landfill after it has outlived it use". Also the most commonly used plastic for printing is PLA, which is biodegradable.

Sometimes there are parts that you need that are no longer available or if it's so bespoke that the only way is to draw it up and make it yourself. If you're not a carpenter or an engineer then this might be the next best thing!

For example, I needed an echo dot mount. Went to look on amazon and they were either £15+ or not quite right for my needs. So I designed one and printed it. It cost me less than £2 for the resin. There have been many many more examples than just that.

You do need the inclination to learn CAD to make the most of it so there's a risk it could end up gathering dust. Sure, you can print random things by downloading files off thingiverse, e.g. toys and novelty gadgets. But the real power is when you have a problem, design a solution and then print it. So satisfying!

And just to be clear, there are some simple Web-based cad programs you can try like tinkercad. Then, if you like it and find it useful, you can invest in better software. The learning curve isn't so steep if you're enthusiastic about it. I got an Ender 3 and it's indispensable now. Even the wife has been convinced!

If you're an inventor at heart then this might be right for you.
