Wow, I’m not sure what I have gotten myself into. As I said in a previous post, I am am new to 3D Printing. Well I got a little cocky and thought, “How hard could it be”… to put one together and get a more basic printer but one with a bigger print volume? Well, let me tell you, it’s NOT that easy and this is where the Creality Ender 3 comes in.
This printer got great reviews and was only $219.00 on eBay. I went with this option, because I didn’t want to have to wait for the China shipment and it was a little cheaper than Amazon.
First thing I did after ordering the printer, I spent a good 3 days printing out “Mods” for it from Thingiverse and then when it did arrive, what was suppose to only take 2 hours, took a good 3.5 hours to put it together, because I was adding the Mods as I went.
I am now on Day 3 with this printer and I have yet to print anything to completion. I have started several jobs and then canceled for one reason or another. It looks like I still have a lot to learn. Oh well, tomorrow is another day and I’m sure we are going to have fun.
