Creality Ender-3 FDM 3D Printer
The Creality Ender-3 3D Printer is one of the best FDM printers under $200 right now, desired for its performance and versatility.
Even though it's a budget FDM 3d printer, the features it houses are comparable to many high-end printers out there.
There are a number of features that make the Creality Ender-3 3d printer one of the most popular machines currently on the market.
It has a build volume of 220 x 220 x 250mm, a BuildTak-like heated build plate, power recovery mode, and a tight filament pathway that makes it easier to print with flexible materials.
These are attributes that are difficult to find in even more expensive printers.
Creality Ender-3 3D Printer is an open-sourced 3d printer.
For every community of users and contributors, for better improved, and more designs can culminate from some of the best and brightest minds in the 3D printing world.
Creality Ender-3 3D Printer is partially assembled and competed by Creality itself.
Which makes it a great 3d printing project for every school and student.
The especially perfect gift to spark a lifelong love for science and engineering and provide a deeper understanding of machinery and robotics.
Use Industrial-grade Circuit Board
The technology used in the Creality Ender-3 3d printer is quite mature and stable.
It can work continuously for 200 hours without pressure.
Also, Creality Ender-3 3D Printer allows it to resume printing after power-off or lapse occurs and with thermal runaway protection itself.
Stable Printing with Creality Ender-3 3D Printer
Patented technology, V-Slot+precision pulley, running more smoothly, more wear-resistant. Effectively reduce noise.
MK8 Technology Adopted in this FDM 3D Printer
MK8 extrusion mechanism is used, a brand-new patented infrastructure that effectively reduces the risk of plugging and poor spillage and can print almost all filaments on the market.
CNC machining of the Y-rail mounting groove to make sure precise positioning and keep the solid frame with the high-precision printing quality.
And big hand twist nut, make the print platform easier to level.
Creality Ender-3 3D Printer can Reach 110℃ for hotbed in about 5 minutes.
Meet the needs of fast heating, and printing ABS suggested to be with a 3d printing enclosure to reduce the heat dissipation.

How to load filament into the machine?
Please heat the nozzle to 200 degrees Celsius at first; then use cutting pliers to cut and straighten the front end of the filament at a 45-degree angle; and then open the extrusion clamp, pass the filament into the extruder kit along with the cut-off detection aperture; until the filaments flow out from the machine nozzle.
What is the purpose of the 5 icons in the upper right corner of the slicing software?
1) Normal mode, usually after displaying STL files normally, is displayed. If you want to change the parameters, you must change them in this mode;
4) Perspective mode, basically not used;
5) Slicing preview mode, which can preview the whole print process, mostly used as a slicing reference.
There is no corresponding model for the software, how do I add it?
Please open the software to find the additional model/printer, select Custom, and enter the machine size that needs to be increased. Please pay attention that the nozzle aperture column needs to be consistent with the actual nozzle aperture of the machine, and then select the hotbed option.
How to deal with the nozzle not discharging?
1.If the loading filaments are not filled in place, please reinstalled;
2. If the nozzle is too close to the platform, please re-leveling;
3.If the plug is blocked, please clean the throat.
