The Creality units are good starter units for learning on, but don't expect perfect prints. I started with the Ender 3 and just got the Ender 5 because the 5 automates things I found frustrating on the 3. I would say this would be a good starting point for a 13 year old who is interested in printing things and learning and discovering and working through issues. If you want something simpler, look for a small resin printer (like this one for $120 after $10 coupon: https://www.amazon.com/ANYCUBIC-Photon-Zero-Assembled-Anti-aliasing/dp/B083SNDS9C).

Resin is a terrible idea - small print volume, have to cure with UV light, the resin is not cost effective. , really the Ender 3 is the way to go, it's simple enough to learn, teaches you the intricacies of 3d printing with minimal investment. At $157 they're a legit little printer, I have 4 running a small print business out of the garage.

I recently bought an Ender3 to introduce me to 3D printing and have had a lot of fun. Leveling the bed is rather tedious so if you can get a printer with auto leveling I would recommend it, but ender 3 is the cheaper option if you're looking to save money. Either way you'll be happy.

it comes in handy for a lot of things if you're a hobbyist or own a business. For example, I can print a washer instead of buying one from store (saving time). I can print hooks for holding things in my garage. I had a part break on one of my machines at work so I designed a copy of it and printed it out instead of trying to call the company and pay $30 or more for somehting that is probably no longer made. Go to thingiverse.com and you can find all kinds of neat or useful things to print.

Designing/modelling the prints is really the hardest part. There's a learning curve to operating the printer, especially the hobby-grade models like the Ender/CR series, and even the prusa ones. 3D printing as a hobby still expects you to be able to pull out the soldering iron, wire crimpers, multimeter, and use some troubleshooting skills to upgrade/maintain your printer.

Can you just download things off thingiverse and print them? Sure. Will it work 100% of the time? Absolutely not. Vital parts to the print process do wear out (Nozzles, extruders, pneumatic fittings for the bowden tube, carriage wheels, etc) and it's vital that you're comfortable with tearing down and putting it back together to fix some of them, because there's no such thing as on-site support or service for 3D printers of this level that i know of. Thankfully, there's a gigantic community on FB/Reddit that is always willing to help.

That said, its one of the coolest things to design your own part in something like TinkerCad / Fusion360 and make it a real thing, especially when its a "I wish someone would invent something like this" moment, and then you do.
For someone looking to buy a first time 3d printer, how does this compare to the other printers. PROS/CONS?
You're correct - after further research it doesn't autolevel. I watched a Youtube review that stated that the 5 Pro included it. It wasn't out of ignorance, I did research but the source was bad.

paskovv, what about after you add it to your cart? It should show up there as $302. I just checked and it is still doing it for me.

And big printer deals? These are nice but if I am to buy another printer it will have to be a big one.


Currently pledged for the 3dprintmill on Kickstarter.. Got a flash price, so probably won't buy a big one unless the price is epic.

what are the "other printers"?
I'm also a noob, so I can't help but I think you need to be more specific.
just got an ender 3 v2, haven't even put it together yet.

Is there a way to gauge how much the average cost per project for consumables would be? For example, if I were building something the size of a box of saltines and if that something were solid or hollow?

Cura, and most likely other slicing software will give you an idea

For your first printer I recommend a ender 3 or anycubic mega s
Mega s is alot easier to assemble and seems relatively problem free.
Ender is cheaper you have to fully put it together so you get a better idea of how it all works.
Ender has a ton of support on Facebook.
Make sure you level the bed that is one of the most important things.
