I just ordered one. Commented on the previous post. Code worked. Thanks.

Now that I've ordered this printer (my first 3D printer), what products do I need to order so I can start using it when it show up?😱
Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

Our first, and 1-month old Creality Ender 3 Pro experience has been extremely positive and led to our purchase of this CR-10s. That being said, here's my suggestion..

1) Don't go out and buy a bunch of things you 'think' you need; items commonly known as 'mods' and/or 'upgrades'.
2) Learn to print consistently well with just this printer by leveraging online resources such as youtube videos or other websites that give you tips to print well.
2.a) Learn how to manually level the print bed, watch the first layers go down, make a visual note in your mind what those first lines of goo need to look like. The most common issue we have is adhesion. Don't be afraid to use 'rafts' and slim them down if you wish to minimize waste. We also wipe down our magnetic surface regularly with isopropyl alcohol (IPA).
2.b) print a bunch of small items first to test the config and printer hardware setup and minimize waste if you have issues.
3) Don't automatically assume you have a hardware problem. Assume 1st you've got a configuration problem. Every print consistency issue we've had was profile-related (i.e. settings in the Slicer (like Cura)).
4) Find the cheapest resources for quality filament. We use Inland PLA+ filament from Microcenter. They offer a ridiculous variety of colors for $19+tx shipped.
5) Buy a cheap wireless camera to monitor the print if you're not near the printer to monitor progress/problems.

We did add items to our printer but not by buying them, but rather printing them. 1) a tool holder 2) a storage box 3) and an arm that keeps a nice even bend of the filament leading to the feeder (which you probably won't need).

Good luckSmilie

As the other poster stated, dont worry about any upgrades until you have used several spools of filament and are happy with the prints. Also, dont give up on it if you find it hard to get decent prints. Watch youtube videos on setup, troubleshooting bad prints etc and spend time printing all of the "test" prints until they are decent. I bought a Ender 3 Pro a few years ago and my first several months were not satisfying by any stretch. I was dealing with a badly warped/unlevel magnetic bed and thought it was just my lack of being able to level it. Once I bought the Creality glass bed, total game changer. While I still have bad prints ever so often, it works very well and I never have any adhesion problems. Now, I go through rolls of print far more often than I ever dreamed. Phone stands, TPU tires for my sons RC truck plus parts, race track outlines for wall art, socket trays for my tool boxes, mounts for home mini's etc etc etc.

I use mostly Tinkercad and Cura but plan on investing in a better cad program for a few upcoming projects.

I also use Inland from Microcenter and have been very happy with the filament. Free shipping, good prices and for all but the last two orders, I was getting next day shipping but seems they have changed the shipping as it does not come out of Atlanta anymore.

New to the 3D Print world.

Taking local tax into consideration, is the $70 price difference over an Ender 3 v2 significant? Not sure if it's worth going for this, instead of the Ender 3v2 with some minor upgrades.

I have a 3v2 and bought this deal the last time it was up. The 3 is nice, but I want more size.

Over this I'd get the Ender 5 Pro for a similar price

Best advice: get a BLTouch and silent board. I have the Sovol SV01 that is based off this essentially but the upgrades it comes with are great. I would get this one only if I was going to add the conveyor belt to it.

I ordered this Sunday. It was shipped by Amazon and arrived today. I currently have it set up and printing. It did take more than the 5 minutes one review said it took to set up. But my kids were able to do most of it, just needing help to get a screw to fit into a hole that wasn't sized quite right, and getting some wires connected in a tight spot. They quickly disappeared when it was time to level it.

I ordered a spool of PLA from Amazon which also arrived today, because I read that the one it ships with isn't so good, but so far it seems fine. A self-leveling thingamajig is likely in my future just because I don't want to fiddle with it so much.

I was debating between this and holding out for another deal on the Ender 3 pro. As much as I enjoy putting things together, I'm short on time and patience these days, and buying one requiring less effort on my part to get started seemed worth the tradeoff. There's nothing I want to buy immediately, while with the Ender 3 pro there were mods I would have wanted to make right away.

Just FYI, coupon code doesn't seem to stack in their site. so don't bother with new account discount code with this one.

Honestly, the only thing you "need" is some filament. My two creality printers came with a sample of filament that barely finished the test print. Hatchbox or eSun filament off Amazon will do you just fine. This uses 1.75 diameter filament. You'll likely want to start off with PLA until you're cozy. For example: https://www.amazon.com/HATCHBOX-3D-Filament-Dimensional-Accuracy/dp/B00MEZEEJ2/ [amazon.com] . There are some GREAT makers on YouTube (Teaching Tech, CHEP, Fat Dragon Games) that you should start devouring content from.

I buy a lot of zyltech filament. I find the quality really decent, the colors are great, and they often run sales that get you down to ~$15 a roll. Once you have your feet under you, check em out.

Best of luck!

...I think, even in hindsight, the Ender 3 Pro/V2 the right 1st machine to purchase if you're thinking of printing smaller items that can fit within the print-size constraints. Additionally, the support community is massive and you'll be extremely reliant on their information to help you work through the learning curve.

There are workarounds to printing larger items...such as learning to split large objects into multiple smaller pieces using tools such as Meshmixer or Tinkercad. And that's really the point of my response; learning workarounds and solutioning for problems you'll encounter will be a requirement to enjoy this hobby.

I don't want to scare you off. 3d printers can be addictive. Many end up buying multiples, each functioning to serve as specific purpose such as printing only large prints or only small prints or printing specialty filaments, etc. We haven't had any significant issues and encounter primarily adhesion issues and finding the right print profiles to minimize globs, stringing, etc. Because the Ender 3 community is huge, we quickly found printing profiles for 28mm mining prints and well as printing PETG with little effort on Youtube.

Good luckSmilie
