The Ender 3, your next favorite 3D printer

by Stephen Ellison

The Ender 3 from Creality is a budget 3D printer. But, it doesn’t feel like one. It has all the qualities to boast a higher price tag, but with it costing under $200, it’s one of the best ways to get more value for your money. If you’re looking for a bargain, I’m willing to bet you’re going to want to know about the Ender 3 specs. This will help you as you search for the perfect 3D printer for you.

The Ender 3 was one of the most anticipated releases of the year 2018 and has only grown in popularity since. It sports many different features, including some which are absent for more expensive printers. Many users even fail to take full advantage of all these features. That’s why this article will focus on helping you get to know this printer better.

First impressions

At first glance, the Ender 3 might come across as a small 3D printer. However, this is not unintentional, as Creality is known to offer the best quality in the smallest package possible. This way, the Ender 3 can easily find a home within your home or office. Don’t be fooled by this appearance, however, as the printer has sufficient build area to handle a variety of prints.

In the box, you will all the parts properly labeled and ordered. This helps the unboxing and assembly process goes much faster. All the parts and tools required to assemble your printer come in the box, so you’re not going to need any other tools. The package includes some test filament and a USB stick with printable models and a manual as well as an extra nozzle and nozzle cleaner.

The packaging of the Ender 3 exceeds expectations, considering it is a budget printer.

Some of the useful features the Ender 3 has are:

Heated bed: Any 3d designer that has worked with many different models and filaments will quickly realize why this is a plus. A heated bed ensures that the model is held properly to the print surface and also helps with print accuracy. The Ender 3 is known for having one of the fastest heating beds of any printer; not of any budget printer, but any printer whatsoever!

Power outage recovery

Some times, depending on the complexity of a model, 3D printing with FDM printers could take up to 24 hours or more. Because of this, the printer must be able to recover and continue printing from where it stopped in the case of a power failure. Even at that, some more expensive printers do not have this feature, but the Ender 3 ensures this.
