This is dumbest thing I read today. Clone doesn't mean they fabricated new parts based off of Creality. Clone means they are literally built from the same OEM parts from the same OEM factory.

Please reply even though you factually did not know this. I seriously want to know why you are on a deal forum to not save people money.

P.S. Im an Ender 3 V2 user, but I don't adhere to company loyalty so I will state the truth and not base my replies off, "feelings".

EDIT: P.S.... Sainsmart Amazon is a B on FakeSpot and the link I posted is an A.
So a clone with 50 reviews? BTW, saying 'this is the only thing people should look at' is the cornerstone of an opinion you should run away from.

Honestly I'd have to question the quality of every component, just because they are "cloned" does not mean they are of comparable quality. Could be great though...could be crap. Searching "Voxelab" the most reviews I can find on Amazon is 200 which is rather low. Again, not saying I know anything about the quality but this NON-clone SainSmart has a higher rating and more reviews:
https://www.amazon.com/SainSmart-...B07DGV2L8Z .

By your own logic the SainSmart is the clear winner.
This is a resin printer. Besides it not having the ability to print models as large as this or any Ender. It also is an entirely different technology behind it.

Resin is TOXIC.

I would not buy this for just any kid. The kid needs to have demonstrated maturity and respect to be able to safely handle resin printing. Fumes can damage your lungs and just touching the uncured resin (while its a liquid) on to bare skin can cause chemical burns.

Resin models require them to be washed with iso-propyl alcohol after printing and its extremely recommended to have a device to further "cure" them to make sure all resin absolutely is hardened.

If they still seems fine to you then yes, Elegoo Mars 2 is a great first resin printer.

Good printer at a solid price for anyone looking to get into 3D printing. If you want a slightly more premium version, wait for a deal on the Ender 3 v2, otherwise you will be plenty happy with this deal

Where does this say it has a 32-bit board?

It's a 32-bit board, but I feel like I'd want to pay for a board with silent stepper drivers anyways, and those are all 32-bit.

This is the only beginner printer people should look at. Its an Ender 3 Pro clone with the upgrades that comes with a V2.

And its NOT some unknown brand of questionable quality. Voxelab in a subsidary of Flashforge, an completely respectable brand of mid and upper market self contained 3D Printers.

Seriously... read the reviews, watch the YouTube videos. Don't buy this here or wait for a Creality deal. Absolutely no need.

I just got an Elegoo Neptune 2 about a month ago for $160. It has similar specs as the Ender 3 v2 and Elegoo pretty much nailed it. It's worth the extra $5 if you can manage to grab one that's in stock. They just released it in February and Amazon hasn't been able to keep it in stock.

I've watched reviews from some popular 3d printing youtubers on the Voxelab and they seem impressed. In the end, getting a budget 3d printer is a great place to start if you want to truly learn every part of the process and how to fix problems.

Nice deal! I've owned my Sainsmart Ender 3 for over two years, zero issues. Best printer you can buy to start off 3D printing. Still printing on my stock bed, haven't needed to level it in almost a year, awesome printer!

So I ordered a Prusa mini a week ago but it doesn't ship for 10 weeks. That one has auto bed leveling. Just wondering if I should get this. That thing is $450 with shipping and tax. New to 3d printing, short on time. I've designed 5 things with sketchup and am moving to blender or fusion 360 next.

Was going to say this...there is a reason Elegoo Neptune 2 has become an Amazon unicorn. Everyone is replacing their economy print farms with them instead of the Enders. In the past 18ish months Creality has really skimped on quality of components and it has shown at the end-user level. The Neptune 2 is a workhorse for the price, cheaper than E3V2 and puts out consistently better prints. Elegoo pretty much already took over the resin printing game and the Neptune is the FDM machine that looks to do the same to the entry level FDM market too.
