This is not plug and play - you will need to spend a decent amount of time fine tuning.

This is not a must but nice to have - Auto leveling sensor - https://www.amazon.com/ANTCLABS-B...B076PQG1FF


Most important of all - vapors from polymer filament extrusion are extremely hazardous.

You will need to use the 3D printer in a chamber/enclosure/cabinet with adequate air filtration, or use it outside, with a lot of ventilation. Do not over look this. This is NOT a desktop device meant to be kept right next to your computer or regular printer.

So many reasons I love this printer. Some are the ease of use and simplicity of the printer. It has great resolution and detail with fantastic accuracy. The assembly was easy and I had it up and running in less than an hour. Part replacement is super simple too. I damaged my nozzle and swapped it out with a new one in less than 3 minutes.

As for the bed size, it works for me. I like to print figures and gadgets. I know I won't be printing my own home with this thing (as awesome as that would be) but so far there hasn't been anything too big for me to print on this little guy.

And there seem to be a ton of People in the community that are passionate about it. You can find a lot of people online with tips and tricks for getting the most out of this printer. Thousands of videos on YouTube. Forums. Resources for getting the most from an ender 3 are plentiful.

As for filament, I'm afraid I haven't been to experimental and have yet to try anything other than pla. I just buy whatever looks good on Amazon and rock n roll. No problems yet.

I picked up one last time they were on Woot as my first 3d printer and haven't regretted it for a second.

These are definitely a lot of fun if you're a tech junkie like me, and this price point makes it really easy to get into the hobby.

I definitely recommend that folks check out the ender3 subreddit before and after buying, as it can be a lot of help and can also provide inspiration: https://www.reddit.com/r/ender3/

Personally, I found setup to be pretty easy - though it definitely helps to prepare yourself by not only following the included assembly instructions but by also watching a few videos on the topic and seeking out the updated instructions in prep.

Also, align your expectations with reality - odds are that you're not going to be printing quality prints for the first few days, as it takes quite a bit of troubleshooting and tinkering to get all of the settings dialed in.

Something else to prepare yourself for - you're likely to spend a lot of your time upgrading the printer itself with both printed parts (so meta) and for-pay upgrades (like auto bed leveling). Being a tech enthusiast, this has been a fun positive (rather than a negative thing) for me - there's something cool about being able to upgrade the device itself with things printed on it (imagine: "Car, upgrade your engine.")

What's the normal price on this? Looks like around $230.
I have been wanting to bite on a 3D printer deal. Is this one good to build and print out of the box or are there recommended mods?

is this an actual ender 3? I know that may sound crazy but I've been hit by sainsmart passing off cheaper copies of chinese stuff before. And while IMHO the ender 3 for the price is a great printer I am skeptical at sainsmart slapping their name on it as well. the ender 3 is open source so they can copy it but if they did and this is not manufactured by creality but instead by sainsmart then I would personally run away because you will have problems and you will get zero support.

My ender 3 is my favorite purchase I have ever made in a very long time. Highly highly highly recommend it if you're interested in learning 3d printing.

Can you explain in more detail? What do you like about this one?

I am wondering if the 220x220 bed size is large enough for my needs. Also what filament do you recommend?

Just bought it a few minutes ago from Woot. This will be replacing my Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer V2, which I'll be taking to work for my students to play with.
