  • Ender 3 Pro Extruder Stepper debugging - sanity check?

    Hi. New member here with a real head scratcher. I'd really appreciate any advice.

    I have an Ender 3 Pro, sold by Sain Smart, which I believe is an OEM of Creality. It seems to be identical to a Creality unit, other than the printing on the metal and some graphics on the LCD (presumably custom firmware).

    This all started with problems with the filament not feeding smoothly such that the extruder stepper would slip back with a loud "chunk". I determined that the...

  • the table is the bed. the bed moves in y. the gantry moves in x + z only. maybe this is a difference in language. you will find that this design is called the "i3" because it was first made popular on the prusa i3. the ender 3 takes this concept and makes it cheaper to build the machine. if you want something nice, buy a dutchy. if want something nice that is a kit, try railcore 300 or a jubilee. those a free open source projects. you will spend about $1000 to $1700 in parts. the ender...

    ender 5 prints dont stick anymore

    hi, got a cr10 mini a few weeks ago, and was having so much fun with it, so when I got a good deal on a ender 5, I bought it, first 5-6 prints was great, stuck to the bed without any problems, or adhesive, now, I get warping in the beginning on every print, when starting with the skirt.
    I dont feel that its a leveling issue, since Im used to leveling the cr10, no problems there, I tried using some of the adhesive I use on the cr10 bed on the ender 5, made no difference, plus when I stop the...

  • Ender 3 Pro quality,safety tips and tech support issues

    Hi gays this is a post about a new Ender 3 pro printer that i purchased this year from creality 3d store. This official store advertised that all printers are assembled and checked before shipping to customers . So i was in that regard sure that i will get a printer, that is safe to use and
    perform in use as expected.
    Also many sites are making a fuzz about how good this printer actually is,and many of these site are payed reviews,so they will advertise the good stuff but not the...

  • Ender 3 Hot End 12v Fan 40mm vs Stock 40mm 24v

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if you can help me. I have a Creality Ender 3, and have upgraded it to Direct Drive and have changed my stock fans from the 24v to NF-A4x10, using the buck converter. All seems well but recently I have noticed that practically almost every big print (64 tiny parts on bed) seems to fail with a print clog, it has been driving me crazy as I have changed every slicer setting, cleaned extruder, changed PTFE tube, changed filament and still get the same result....

  • Ender-3 Pro BLTouch not retracting + LCD issues

    Good morning all

    I 've recently installed the BLTouch V3 on my Ender-3 Pro, but I'm having trouble getting it to work.

    I've triple checked all of my connections and I've paid close attention to the installation videos on YouTube from Teaching Tech & Creality.

    When I power on the printer, the BLTouch probe pulses a few times and the LED stays red, but the probe does not retract when an obstruction is detected.
    It would have crashed into my print bed...

    Hi,

    First off I am a complete newb to 3D printing so please excuse what will undoubtedly be a post about dumb problems but I am so disappointed/frustrated/stumped with what to do. and after receiving no help from Creality themselves I have decided to reach out for help.

    So here is my story.....
    I recently (Feb 2020) acquired a Creality Ender 5. after unboxing and following all steps to set up the printer I decided to do a test print which worked perfectly and I was...

  • Ender 3 v2 quality issues - can't figure it out

    Hi, all - I've been lurking a while and have been googling all over to suss out some print issues I've had come up recently with my Ednder 3 v2. With some great Cura settings I found/tweaked, I've been able to print minis at a pretty high quality. As an example:


    However, in the past week or two, I haven't been able to any longer. Prints are cobwebbing, sending out spaghetti, or losing chunks all together:

    replied to Let's Talk Bed Adhesion
    Here's what I know so far. Finding the correct print surface really depends on the material you're printing. When I started I was almost always printing abs and had to use adhesive to try to keep the print down with varied success regardless of print surface. I have used Kapton tape, CS Hyde PEI sheet (3mil), Buildtak, Geckotek Hot, Painters tape, Glass with glue stick, Glass with hairspray, Glass with 3d printer adhesive (3dsystems cubestick), and generic Buildtak that is included with chinese...

    Can't get rid of elephant foot.

    Hey guys!

    I am fairly new to 3d printing, I recently bought a Crealty Ender 3 Pro. For the past 3 weeks, I have been trying to get rid, or at least minimalise elephant foot at the bottom of my prints, both with PLA and ABS.

    Here is what I have tried so far (using Cura slicer), with a simple 2 by 2 cm cube, exported as an STL from Blender, printed on a heated glass bed, layer height 0.2mm:

    1. initial layer horizontal expansion (down to -2 mm, in 0.5 increments)...

    Ender 5 Plus adhesion problems

    I recently purchased an Ender 5 Plus. The assembly went well but I'm having trouble with the PLA not sticking to the back end of the build plate (the side opposite of the Ender logo). I have included STL and gcode files as well as pictures so you can see what I am trying to print and how the model is lifting off the right rear of the build plate. Please note the same problem also occurs at the left rear side.

    I tried printing this model with a “raft” and without a “raft”...

    Ender 3 printing problem

    Good evening,

    I am new to group and seeking for some help please.
    I have two friends who are really into football, so I wanted to give them a bit of a gift, so I got a file from thingiverse. Its a Liverpool UEFA trophy.
    I had a successful print and one of them was very happy about it. A couple of days later I wanted to print the same file for the second guy,
    but in that instance
    half of the print came out nice, the other half looks terrible.
    I cannot figure out what...

    PLA filament recommendations.

    Hi All,

    New to this amazing world of 3d printing.

    This week I've ordered an Ender 3 v2 from Creality, unit could be up to a month away with shipping.
    I will need PLA filament for this printer and wanted to know from the user base if there are any *recommendations* or *warnings*.
    I have the idea that unless i'm buying really cheap stuff, that any PLA at a mid price point is fine. Is this the case?

    Please let me know, especially if there's any to...

    Ender 3 Benchy test with PET-G

    Hi all,
    I have an Ender 3 and I think I have my settings dialed in, but have some issues I don't know how to fix.
    E-Steps have been calibrated.
    Speed 50mm/s
    Temp 240C and 70C
    Retraction 6mm and 40mm/s

    There is a small 'blob' on the front left corner (pic 1)
    There are some weird 'blobs' on the front deck (pic 2 & 3)
    There are some strange markings on the back right side quarter (pic 4)
    Appears to be evidence of something like elephant...
