Now it says between 12PM, and 1 PM today. I have never seen them narrow a delivery time down like that. It has been several years since I tracked something on USPS, this has been interesting.
That has happened to me several times in the past few weeks, only it was Amazon failing to make the delivery. Doesn't seem to do any good to complain with feedback "delivery was late".Well, the USPS says it will be delivered by 9PM today, I got news for them it did not make it.
Santa (me!) brought me an Ender 3 Max Neo. It has 300x300x320 print bed. The newer models are coming around these days with more features. Look for "silent" motherboard such as the Creality 4.2.7 with silent stepper motor drivers. Makes a big difference in noise level. This printer has auto bed leveling built in so no mod necessary. It is the CR Touch (basically the same as the BL Touch). After initial setup, which was only 4 bolts, I trammed the bed as closely as I could using a sheet of paper to adjust the corners to the nozzle. Then ran the auto bed level. Finally, with the nozzle in the center of the bed, I used the menu to adjust the z axis. I think I ended up with -1.7mm or something like that. The machine has been printing a lot with no issues. See pic. The machine is printing 6 small trays. I use eSun PLA + for most of my printing, but I have also used Inland, Hatchbox, and Sunlu at one point. And I have a partial roll of GEETECH white PLA. With these filaments, I can use any of the three printers (ender3Pro, and CR-10S) all which are set in Cura for 210 C for the hot end and 60C for the bed.Is the Prusa i3 MK3S still a good one to get or is the Ender 3 Pro/V2 a better choice? Looking to get into 3D printing next year and beginning my research.
I believe it depends on the printer you choose. Some even print glass filled, metal, carbon fiber, etc. but they're probably pricey.I’d want to be able to print everything from rubbery stuff to hard, ridgid durable stuff.
Thanks for the welcome. I feel like we’ve met before!I believe it depends on the printer you choose. Some even print glass filled, metal, carbon fiber, etc. but they're probably pricey.
Btw, welcome to the forum!
Haha! I had the same feeling; must be ESPN.I feel like we’ve met before!
In what little shopping I've done the ones who don't mention that stat are typically a little on the small side and don't want to advertise that weak stance. Some of the ones who do mention it because of the large print area are maybe hoping it makes up for some other shortcoming in their printer. Research is key here!One of the things I’ve noticed while printer shopping is that many don’t show the maximum printable area which is kind of important to me.
Buy once cry once! 😄👆👆👆 +1
Quality...and...large print area = moocho ££$$
