Yes, as long as the Slicing software supports the files. Cura is what most use for slicing and STL is the main one supported you will find. My son makes Solidworks files for me and it does STL.

Quote from metlfan2003 :
If you're comfortable with things like flashing firmware and low voltage wiring, you can add a bed leveling sensor for less than $15. I bought this Geetech 3D Touch sensor [ebay.com] two years ago and added it to my Ender 3. It took some tinkering to get it dialed in, but I haven't had to do anything with it since and it's worked great.
Had you already upgraded your mainboard when you bought the Geetech 3D Touch sensor, or did you purchase a pin 27 board adapter separately? My Ender 3 Pro still has the v1.1.4 board in it.

I did get a pin 27 board to make everything easier to deal with on my original board also. I've since upgraded to a SKR Mini E3 so I forgot all about it.

The Geetech sensor has been great but it didn't come with much documentation or wiring. I already had plenty of small gauge wire to use and there were enough tutorials online to figure out what to do.

I'm not sure if this is the case still, but a few years ago when I purchased my Ender 3 with the regular 8-bit boards, they didn't have "Thermal runaway" protection turned on by default in their firmware.

If they still haven't fixed this, I'd recommend flashing to a newer version of Marlin firmware. (Although you may need to buy some parts to flash if you do not have them handy.)

"Thermal Runaway Protection" is a VERY important safety feature.

Wow, you'll notice your comment is the third time someones asked, and yet it originates from the same place of stupidity.

Its a "re-badge" sorry, "Clone" taxed you too much in the grey matter.
Well, "clone" is not the same as "re-badged" so I'm not sure why you are being rude, when you are the one confused. 🤷🏽 ♂️

Quote from cyciumx :
My rude demeanor isn't helping me... but hot damn there are loads of folks in here actively trying to kill this info.

I tell them a Voxelab "Clone" is better and they argue back with ZERO experience that a Sainsmart "rebadge" is original... they are all original. Its like the folks in here never heard of how the Chinese manufacturer stuff these days.

Your rude demeanor is helping kill this information, because people focus on that instead of your point. EEK!LMAO

Great. Don't buy it then and know you actually actively chose to purchase the weaker product. All good. Some people here don't screw themselves just to own me.

Hi (redacted name),

They are not the same. Some constructions are different. Maybe some small part could be used on both machines.

All the best,

There ya go. Once again I am showing that you are the one talking without ACCURATE information & experience.

Also I, like most people here, never said Voxelab was bad, we merely said you do not know what a clone actually is. Saying someone is purchasing a weaker product is an idiotic claim when the other product was 25% cheaper. You can always spend more money to get a better product, but the benefits may not outweigh the added cost.

With all that said, if the coupon was working, I think the two devices would be on equal footing. Without the coupon, I would spend the extra $25 for the Voxelab and its upgrades.

Thats about as informative as the shit I just took. I'll apologize for thinking you were lying, but really, "some construction" and "maybe some small part" are two statements in conflict.

If some construction is different then why only some small part can be used by both. Pretty easy to tell the aren't allowed to say they are the same damn machine with differences in stock setup.

P.S.... just so you understand something. This deal was not originally $135 as it was updated yesterday.

It was $155, which is how it is listed now. Another user added in the $20 off 100 code bringing the price down yesterday.

So no, $155 is not 25% cheaper than $179 and my original post was made when the price was $155. If you lot have tried to inflict knowledge it was that context matters.

I wish could have snagged earlier. First 3d printer but paid $155. They are charging $10 for shipping. So I was able to find $10 coupon and end up paying $155

Quote from Glee217 :
So which you recommend for either case?
personally? nothing wrong with the ender as a cheap machine. There's also the prusa mini+ if you want a good warranty and support for a little more. If you have 800-1000 to spend you're looking at a prusa mk3s unless there's something very specific you need in your setup. There's also resin printers, they're quite cheap these days, sub $500, often down under $300. Any of them with the monochrome masking screen I would recommend, they're all pretty much the same machine.
