Default Just ordered a 3d printer

I ordered a Ender 3 V2. I figured with all the parts I wanted to buy that are 3d printed It would just be cheaper to buy a printer and just buy the files to print my own.

First rule is Donít get frustrated!!!
There is a learning curve. Start with a spool of PLA and learn the machine. Then once youíve got it down, now go for the good stuff, PETG and TPU...
Heat and nozzles make a difference with other filament.
Have fun and ask questions!


Hang up and Drive

I just got the V1. Have a v2 in the cart as well. May just upgrade the V1 and go for the 5Pro or maybe the CR10 Max as my next printer.
Still waiting for the roll of filament I order with the printer to arrive. Printers been here and out of the test filament sent with it for 9 days now. lol

Have the dual gear drive, MicroSwiss Hotend, upgraded springs and wheels for the bed leveling, new mobo (timberwood is it? ) and a few hardened tips in the amazon cart for the v1. that's just over 100.00.

However I may be the V2, and use it for PLAs and upgrade the V1 for Nylon/CF parts.

Add a filament drier to the shopping list if you want to print nylon. A roll of nylon filament will absorb enough moisture from the air from sitting out for a few hours that your prints will turn to crap.
