If you have to ask the question, I think you've answered it. Only reason I've really considered one is because I occasionally would like to make something like a custom case or bracket but I've heard the dirt cheap ones (£80 ebay) aren't that good so I've decided to leave it.

VashTech

Hmm..do I really need a 3d printer in my life? Can someone convince me please? :/

not_the_messiah

Oh I know - I got a V1!! However, at least those came with metal linear bearings! Never bothered with the stock bed either - went straight for silicon heat pad.

pankomputerek

I wouldn't count on any being newest revision. You will probably find V2 version somewhere that's just how it should have shipped...

You can usually pickup the ender 3 for around £160 off Ebay direct from Creality. I got mine for £136 when ebay ran one of their 10 percent off promos.

babblerx

Not a bad deal if buying from the UK. The only thing I would say is before buying, ask yourslef if you really need the build volume this printer has. I say this because I have this printer and haven't printed anything anywhere near the maximum volume. Creality do a smaller printer called the Ender 3 with a better print bed (faster heating and able to reach higher temperarture quicker, hot enough to print with a wider range of plastics). It's available on Amazon for £195. Just to reiterate, the OP's post isn't a bad deal, just think about what you'll be printing...do you need the volume when you can get a smaller machine for much cheaper. Heat added.

I have an Anet A8 at the moment. Looking to upgrade due to all the messing to get good prints on the A8. Should i get this?

Ouch, mine had no defects, just just need to make sure everything is square.

SavageDonkey

I bought one of these on ebay and it arrived used, parts dumped in a box with the frame warped and scratched. I asked to return it and after a while they refunded me and told me to keep it..... I eventually took a hammer to the frame and put it together but the home position goes too far past the the bed... It has sat on my desk now for months doing nothing

benfisher1991

I have this printer with a glass bed. You can get some good results but prepare to be constantly messing with settings and getting mediocre prints from time to time. The build process is also extremely important. Once setup though the prints are awesome!

Initially, I thought they were a bit of a gimmick. There are sites like Thingiverse where you can download designs and things to print, which is pretty decent - good for cheap source of pokemon statues etc. An early adopter in my friend group printed off toys for his kids. There are some crazy things that you literally can't make with other methods - for example, hinges that are printed as a sealed unit. The plastics are surprisingly strong, you can use software to run simulations to test the load strength before failure. The accuracy of part sizes are crazy though - 0.1 or 0.2 mm is not uncommon. However, there are many different materials to learn the properties of - some flexible, some harder wearing. Always a trade off! However, where it really shines is using something like Fusion 360 to start to customize, or make your own items.(free for hobbyist use). I made a phone holder ashtray cubbyhole replacement for a Saab using a design that someone uploaded to Thingiverse as a starting point. You literally cannot buy these. However, unless you're paying for a pre-tuned, non hobbyist printer, expect to have a steep learning curve, and a fair number of failed prints to start. I recently took the plunge, and its taken a month of pretty constant printing, failing and tuning of settings to understand how to make a good print. If you get frustrated easily, make sure you look at reviews and check that it is more 'appliance like' - as in, plug in and print. I don't know anything about the listed item, except that if you want to print things for hot areas like in cars, the enclosure will make ABS, a plastic with better heat properties, significantly easier to print.

Blurigard

It should be called that but if you search on places like B&Q or Wickes for wood flooring you get laminate even though there's only a sliver of wood in 'em.

ddaann_99

Don't people usually refer to that as laminate flooring? If you said wood floor to me I'd assume you meant real wood flooring.

Blurigard

By the same token 90% of wooden floors aren't wood; they're MDF particles with a printed top layer coated in plastic resin. People still call it wood.

DivideByZero

I was wondering the same... but mainly so I knew why I really want one. I'm thinking mainly because I don't have one yet.

The ender 3 from Amazon is pretty much ready built, just bolt on the frame and plug in 4 cables, took about 10 minutes. Easier than ikea furniture.

Lancman

If you don't mind temporarily moving your Ebay account to USA, you can currently get this printer for around £310 using the 15% discount code (valid until 6am tomorrow). CR10S Ebay Code details I've just done this and picked up the Ender 3 for £136. I don't need the build volume of the CR10.

Ender 3 is a perfectly capable machine, do you have one?

damadgeruk

Larger print size, dual z drive, filament sensor and other bits. The ender 3 is a fantastic machine IMO, I've spent very little time researching and messing about though I'm pleased with the results.

Bear in mind that reddit's 3d printer forum roundly recommended you avoid buying from gearbest. The printer itself is excellent value for money and this price is good.

JayDubya

Damn you man! ;) (Thanks)

GlentoranMark

There is a lot of tinkering in them. You've 3 axis to deal with and you have to configure each until you get the right settings. The bed also has to be level and heated to the correct temperature. Even the filament temperature and speed has to be tweaked. The good news is these printers can be upgraded by printing upgrades from the prinetr itself. Belt tensioners, buttons, covers etc can all be printed. I must admit I've done very little to my printer since it arrived but I've printed many things with it including a water tap (that retails at £20, cost me pennies) a key holder, keyrings, a part for my car and that printer housing that is bespoke and unavailable anywhere else. Have a look at www.thingiverse.com and see what others have created. Have a specific look at the Ender 3 projects and my machine (Anet A8). You might be surprised at the wide variety and quality of the projects. My machine cost £130 delivered and it's close to the bottom of the range. I've seen R/C planes, boats and cars all printed that work. You can improve a print massively by simply sanding it down. If your hedging whether to get one, just do it. They are handy gadgets to have and I reckon in 10 years they'll be almost as popular as a normal printer.

JayDubya

oooh. I like the sound of it. I'd better stop reading the thread... lol

damadgeruk

No, the Ender 3 is perfectly capable of producing almost identical finish to printers costing double the price(and above). I've successfully printed usable (and nicely detailed) lego compatible items.

You choose NLPost registered as the shipping method, it never gets charged for customs in my experience and I've bought about 4 phones, kids games, torches etc. So by the law of averages, anyone buying this way is very unlikely to get stung for customs charges.

This will be a good printer but there are far better printers for much less money. As someone mentioned above, the creality ender 3 is one of these. I just sold my flashforge finder and got an ender 3 for £146 delivered from gearbest.

Spedley

I have the Flashforge Finder which I really like, however this has the same 0.5kg spool problem. It isn't difficult to get around on the Finder but I'd check out how to do it before you buy this.

john757

Yes, this is correct. Which further reinforces why this isn't much of a deal if you know what you're looking at. PETG is much nicer to print with in regards to it not giving off any nasty fumes. It's still not as heat tolerant as ABS, but should be fine for most peoples applications.

What the ...? (shock) I also received mine today. It's packed properly with foam and looks new. BTW, I checked with the offical Creality eBay store, and they said the eBay store we ordered from is also theirs. They also said the prices are slightly cheaper because it's a new store (presumably they want to encourage sales and rep).

My ender 3 arrived, just parts flapping about in a box, no packaging, was a mess of scratched parts. They offered me £50 discount but the main frame is warped and with 3 feet on the ground, the front right sits a few cm's in the air :(

That is a great looking first print! I wonder if that's consistent across the Ender 3. Admittedly, all of my experience is on a CR-10, and I know there are lots of people who give up after spending weeks trying to get prints as good as yours. I'd just hate for someone to dive in thinking they were getting a great deal, get let down by bad prints, and then realize that they're better off trying to re-sell the printer locally to someone who has the patience for it than to try and ship it back to China! I'm seriously considering that Ender 3 now!

djbumrush

Ah, okay, if you already have an A8, I think you'll be pleased by the Ender 3. A lot of people in the Creality community are ex-Anet customers. With specific regard to finish quality and speed, it just depends on how much time and effort you're willing to put into it. As fpsazerbaijan mentions, you can get great prints basically out of the box, and it's clear that Creality has taken on a lot of the user feedback on board, but it's not guaranteed.

buckiebull

I have the Anet A8 but I've only printed off a few things with it (I Admit it's been gathering dust for a few months), I was thinking more on the lines of finish quality & Speed! The build looks a breeze to put together unlike my Anet A8 which never came with building instructions for my first build I had to go on youtube which help a little but it was an older speck printer but not by much which took me about 2.5hrs to complete!

fpsazerbaijan

As a complete 3D printing noob I was amazed how easy it was to assemble the Ender 3. I used the provided instructions and this tutorial for bits that weren't very clear in the instructions. My first prints have all been flawless (the dog below is the test print that came on the SD card) :D The SD even includes Cura and instructions for configuring that.

djbumrush

I looked at the Anet A8 and A6 before I purchased my Creality CR-10. I as sold on the bigger print volume as well as reviews by various people on YouTube. It turns out I very rarely use the bigger build volume. I'd say go for a Creality printer, but I've just had another look at the A8 and it looks like it comes with linear bearings. Generally, that's what you would want over the V-slot extrusion and rollers, but I would imagine that the linear bearings on the A8 are going to be really cheap. There's a great community behind both brands (but forget any kind of manufacturer support, it doesn't exist). Also, I'm not being facetious when I say that if you're asking on HUKD about which printer to get, you should probably follow some of the communities on Reddit or Facebook. With any of the cheap Chinese printers, you'd be lucky to get it set up and print on the first try. You can expect problems with bed leveling, jammed filament, etc. so it helps if you're savvy with software and hardware, and you'll probably need to learn a bit about the mechanics and thermal properties of plastic in order to get good prints.

I have one of these as does my uncle and grandad. My grandad got his from Clas Ohlson for £400 just over a year ago. I'd wanted a 3d printer for ages so checked eBay and flashforge were selling refurbs for £179. This is where my uncle and I bought ours from and they both arrived in new condition. Having extensively used this printer now, I can say it is very good. HOWEVER, I would recommend people to steer clear of buying it at this price and look at a Creality CR-10 or similar. The Flashforge finder has a much smaller printbed size meaning you are more limited in what you can print. You are also limited in the plastics you can print with due to a lack of heated print bed. Check RCLifeOn YouTube channel for a good comparison video of some current highly rated 3d printers. For about the same money as this flashforge finder you could buy many of these printers in this video.

getknk

Any good websites for review of 3d printer world similar to xda-developers?

xfirebladex

If you're a maker, then these are very useful for models, mould masters, accessories, tools etc. For a more practical purposes, I've used mine to make a reducer coupler to go from my dust extractor to my flexible hose. The little clip that holds the porta-filter in my espresso machine broke off so I modelled a replacement and printed five of them as spares. Wanted a charger dock for my mobile and I just printed one. You will find uses for it when you have it. Does require the ability to model in 3D parametrically for full functionality though.

buckiebull

you may have to learn the basic's first before trying to create anything "thingiverse" has thousands of models posted on there forum! if you have an old xbox 360 camera I think it has to be v1 you can use that plus some software for creating your model image
