Creality Ender 3 DIY 3D Printer – Best Selling 3D Printer For Only $179.99

Desktop printers have been gaining in popularity ever the since the release of the famous Creality CR-10, one of the top bestselling desktop printers. A wide range of brands has since taken to creating models that are similar in design and functionality, but more affordable in price. One of these models is the Creality Ender 3 DIY 3D Printer — a  budget-friendly model with enormous build volume and a compact design.  What does the new printer bring to the table? Let’s find out.

The Creality Ender 3 DIY 3D Printer is a desktop 3D printer kit made by Creality, a manufacturer from China. This FFF (FDM) 3D printer comes as a semi-assembled kit and is based on the Prusa i3 design. The Creality Ender 3 DIY 3D Printer,  just like other printers manufactured by Creality, is a large-scale printer. It comes with a large 220 x 220 x 250mm  engraving area, which is not the largest in the industry but it makes it more fitting for the desktop 3D printer category. It comes with a detailed manual with clear step-by-step instructions. If you prefer to have some interactive guidance during the assembly process, consider watching one of the many assembly tutorials available online — we included a video tutorial after the “buy link” at the end of this post.

The printer comes with a 0.4mm diameter nozzle and uses a Bowden-type extruder enabling higher printing speeds (up to 180mm/s).  This printer also comes with a 0.1mm  engraving accuracy with a 0.1-0.4mm  layer thickness. The frame is made of super durable aluminum alloy — steady, stable and wear-resistant. There is a high-power heating bed for an efficient printing session and a 2.8-inch full-color touchscreen for quick and easy navigation. It supports printing with ABS, TPU and PLA materials. Its MK – 10 extruders greatly reduce plugging risk and bad extrusion while the  V-slot with POM wheel makes it move noiseless, smooth and durable

I have been a strong follower of Android devices since the release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Right now, Chinese tech completely fascinates me because they are probably the only manufacturers who tries to merge budget and specs.
