  • What buyers say about SainSmart x Creality Ender-3 3D Printer, Resume Printing Prusa i3, for Home and School Use

    The second needed a bit more work and took an hour to align the X axis correctly.

    The box was undamaged, the parts were included in the box, and SainSmart did an excellent job all around.

    The printer is a great deal and I got mine on a lighting deal which made it even better.

    I have been printing for many years, and I am very impressed with the quality of the printer that I own, which was $300-5000, and my first one, an old Printrbot 1401, which I purchased on year 5.

    I agree with his assessment after over a month of ownership, if you take your time during assembly, follow Tomb of 3D printed Horrors guide on YouTube, and do adequate research ahead of time you should have a good out of box experience with the Ender 3.

    Common Questions


    Is it necessary to use any specific software or can you use any models you find on the internet?


    The version of Cura that comes on the SD card is a bit dated. However, you can download UtliMaker Cura free and tinker with a few settings.


    I have to consider a second shiping after recieving it from you, what's the packaging size for this printer?


    The package is 20.1"(L) x 15.7"(W) x 7.5"(H). The gross weight is 17.8 lbs.


    The CR-10 is loud and uses cheap fans.


    I live in a one-room apartment and, naturally, I have it run in the same room as me. You will definitely hear the whirring and movement of the nozzle, but it is fairly quiet.


    Has anyone had a problem with a hot spot in the center of printbed?


    I keep my heat on the low end because I don't get too much trouble with bed adhesion.


    Will it work with the chrome book?


    So any computer or tablet that is capable of producing a Gcode file and writing to an SD card will work.
