I have really enjoyed playing with the Enders 3 pro machine! This is what every person should try, not only learning a new trade (Auto Cad) but building unlimited things for around the house or even building new ideas. The machine will perform exactly what you design. If you make a design error the machine is so precise it will let you know in the print out. I still have a lot to learn, but Enders 3 makes it fun !!
Works like a charm.
The display has it’s errors like this sometimes.
I don’t know if there is a way to fix this or there is a error in the display.
But the rest works perfect
Fast shipping arrived earlier than expected.. setup was a breeze..so user friendly works great prints are amazing i’m so happy with my purchase ..Thank You!!
Absolutely the best 3d printer out there. Would highly recommend
Absolutely the best purchase of my life! It's a very inexpensive 3d printer but it has such good quality that it blows me away. It has a little bit of a learning curve but once you figure it out the prints are amazing. This is a definite must have for every household.
Absolutely the best purchase of my life. Being able to create whatever you wanted is an incredibly freeing experience. The printer does have a learning curve but once you figure it out it has professional quality and easy printing. Definitely a must have for any household.
Great 3D printer, affordable so you can add all of your custom mods! I got three of them from creality3d.shop
had an issue great customer service helped me solve it and get my printer working agin.
It is my fav of my 4 different 3D printers!!
I run a STEM classroom and every year my students design and build 3D printed model rockets. Total we do about 1,000 hours of total combined print time in a short span. We have 7 Ender 3s, 3 Prusas and 1 Flashforge. They are all good machines. The Ender 3s for the money though are what get us through the project every year. I have had them a few years now and they basically never get turned off. I have not had any failures.
Works very well and when I would have a issue i reach out to customer service and if i need a part if gets sent . Love the printer
Me and my autistic son have something to bond overnight
Fred is my first 3d printer and I was able to get it going within a day of use. Yes I named the printer. Its a great printer. You just have to get settings down for each filament, everything leveled and wow just awesome! I fully recommend!
My first 3d printer and I love it! I love building and constructing prototypes and other projects with it. Easy to operate and once you understand how it works, you can really get technical with the settings. Thank you creality for making such a great and easy to use printer for novices and pros.
Great printer, set up is straight forward lots of help videos on web,
software is easy use, customer service seemed good.
The less than good:
The directions are not as clear as they should be. (Needed you tube videos).
Extruded clamp is plastic and broke in under an hour. ( upgraded with metal clamp from Amazon).
Creality was responsive and willingly replaced the clamp but took over a week to get a replacement plastic clamp.
Overall very happy
I’m have a good time troubleshooting and leveling the bed but I enjoy doing that stuff. Also learning a lot of new programs since I got my printer.
It came super fast after ordering and it runs really smooth. Been working on tons of projects and finally get to make them a reality.
So far so good! Little hiccups here and there but over all happy!!!
I’ve had this machine for months and I absolutely love it. I love the customizability of it as well as the cheapness of replacement parts (even though I have not had to replace anything yet).
Works amazing, haven't had any problems.
Love it so far! I'm new at this game but I love designing and visualizing parts and components!
2 months ago i knew nothing about 3d printing. Despite this i succeed to go direct Drive with all the original parts. I often print faster and better then professionnal Who did tutorial on YouTube, or even the predefine settings you can download to add to a slicer. All cause of you guys, thanks a lot. I discovered a true passion, a new world, a new dimension and far beyond the "z" axis One. Lol
Great printer love it works well.
The printer works fine and was able to print a few things with the sample filament with no problems.
Been having a blast learning, really enjoy designing my own creations on freecad, or blender and then printing them. The included picture is a print from thingiverse but I have made my own also and it is so rewarding to see something I spent time designing cone to be and work for my needs.
Haven't had any trouble with this printer at all, I've installed a glass bed, and a few other odds and ends and am looking forward to a few more upgrades.
great way to fail and learn that no one judges
Should be coming with the metal extruder by now... plastic one broke after the 1st roll. Wish it was at leat an add on option as well as the silent motherboard. Other than that this thing awesome, it is a work horse for sure and can do almost anything
Great entry level print. If you upgrade it to auto bed leveling it help out a lot. Great price and I would recommend this to anyone that wants to get Into the hobby.
Super easy setup with great quality out the box
I love the printer it was easy to set up and I was printing within an hour of getting it the test filament they sent was great for some test prints while I waited for the two reels of filament to arrive got to say I 100% recommended buying this printer it’s amazing and worth every cent
I absolutely love this ender 3 pro! One of the few hobbies I get to make my own improvements!:)
Excellent machine for its price. However, do not expect a straight out of the box system. Some patience and tweaking is necessary. But once you get it figured out it is a great piece of machinery. There is tons of stuff to help you on google, FB, YouTube,...
Easy to assemble and creality makes great printers
I bought this gift for my son for Christmas....and he loves it! He has made numerous gifts.
Definitely recommend this product!!!
I love it. It was easy to put together and easy to use?
First 3d printer. For the price it's great! However, the middle of the bed is sagging and it effects the print. You can level it by adding some paper in the middle but it will show on the first layer since the bed wont be 100% perfect.
This thing has been a work horse out of the box! Leveled the bed and took the time to really square it all up and this thing has been printing flawlessly for the last 10 days none stop all day and night print after print! Should have purchased along time ago!
I super excited about having my first 3D printer! I’m great full for all the support on YouTube and for everyone showing mods that make the printer even better.
Works like a dream and probably one of the best things I have bought!

My experience has been great! As a first time 3D printer owner I made some good prints and a couple failed ones. The digital sundial printed the layers a bit too thin and with too many supports. Overall it is a great printer with great quality. Some stringing, but I cut them off which is pretty easy and one method to achieve clean results. I made a blue octopus first and it came out great! I made it as a gift. What I printed were gifts for my family for Chanukah. My family is enjoying the projects on my new 3D printer. Thank you!
Very good 3D printer. Just had a difficult time leveling the bed but over all a great printer.
I'm new to 3D printing. I chose this one (Ender 3 Pro) because of positive reviews and because I heard it has an active community.
While it required some work to get set up, it wasn't too hard to do. I've built many custom computers and I can say that if you feel comfortable building a computer, you will be comfortable putting this together. If that's why the cost is relatively inexpensive compared to other printers with this one's capabilities, then it's well worth it. Also, if something ever goes wrong, you'll have that familiarity to help you address the issue.
As for printing, I've done about 3 or 4 small prints that took about 5 hours each. Aside from one (which I messed up because I didn't have the bed leveled perfectly enough) they all turned out pretty great.
I'm still relatively new to this, but I don't have any regrets and I feel I made a good choice with the Ender 3 Pro.
Easy to put together. But learning the curve is a challenge so ill keep playing around with it.
My first 3D printer was a MP Select Mini V2, and I was really happy with it. Then I wanted something with a larger build surface so I bought the Ender 3 Pro. I really like the magnetic bed; it makes it very easy to remove those "stuck on" prints. It's also much easier to level using the large leveling wheels. The only thing I was a little disappointed by was the display, which is very low-res and pixellated compared to the MPSM.
I've completed some projects but still have some learning to do to get better quality projects.
Unit went together with no problems. Printer was exceptionally packed well. I was able to print a test piece with no difficulty after assembly. I like the unit and will be using it alot.
Excelente impresora, las impresiones son de muy buena calidad.
It came in a very secured package, it was fairly easy to put it all together since the majority of it was already put together and with this new design, it makes it really easy even to travel with it. I highly recommend this design for anyone interested in the 3D printing! ^__^
The machine itself is great. I’ve thrown on some upgrades I purchased on Amazon and have used filament I bought on Amazon. I’ve had the machine for over a month and I STILL have not received the filament and extruded I bought when I ordered the printer! My friend ordered his on the same day and received his filament over a week ago.
Very impressed with quality and how easy it went together. Haven't had any issues
This is mt first 3d printer it was recommended by a buddy. Inloved it for about a week then i started haveing issues spend a few bucks on some recommended upgrades and it has be amazing ever since. Most of the issuse were my filliment causing them but i still would recommended the unit and a couple upgraded parts
I'm still amazed at the quality for the money. I have upgraded the machine slightly and I feel it compares to some of the big boys.
I will definitely stick with Creality for my upgrade model when that comes. However I look forward to using this Ender 3 Pro for a long time. BLTouch just arrived!
Love love love the ease of use and the resulting prints. That magnetic bed is simply brilliant. Having a lot of fun.
First machine Was flawless second came not tightened in a few spots but The machines are Great !
Coming out of the box, everything was in great shape. The assembly would have been a little iffy, but I had watched a number of You Tube videos on the assembly and set-up procedure rather than rely on the instructions that came with the Ender 3D Pro. There was still some experimenting that finally enabled me to start printing and getting things done.
One of the problems that I encountered early on was the fact that leveling the heated bed was difficult. I discovered after purchasing a micrometer to use in the leveling process, that the bed was not flat, it was warped and the middle area was a couple of thousands lower than the outer edges of the plate. Now, I was able to compensate and do some printing. The whole process of programing and slicing was never adequately explained in any of the videos or information that I had downloaded, had to figure it out on my own. But on a happier note, I find that I really enjoy working with my new 3D printer and am finding more & more things to create and make. There are many parts that don't come with the unit, that are improvements toward performance and safety and offer needed and useful experience when printing them out, (this is probably a cost saving from Creality in disguise). The entire unit is very well constructed and I have a good feeling that it is going to hold up well despite my abuse and mishandling. The servos are quiet and very accurate and precise in their movement if the program slicing is done properly. I have found through trial & error that the speed, temperature of the head and the bed are very important, even the filament feed speed needs to be watched. All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase and the research that I did to end up a Creality Ender 3D Pro. This was a look to the future of manufacturing and the all the possibilities that exist, not just as toys, but just like the growth of the computer, 3D printing is going to be and is now a tool to learn.
Way better than anything in this price range, have several 3D printers, got $3000.00 in one from ulti-maker, and several others from monoprice, this one is a hell of a deal.
assembly was easy.
once bed is leveled prints have great surface finish. will update as i print different models
Love this printer. The blue things attached to the top of the printer and the black box at the bottom left corner in front of it were printed with this printer. Blue things are to help filament spooling and to hold the scraper, and the black box was made to hold a Raspberry Pi. Couldn't be happier.
Works great. I should have spent more for the bigger one
I would love to say this has been a great experience. I ordered 2 Ender Pros in two separate occasions with no issue. Fast delivery. Then orders 2 more and only received 1. I have been in communication and seem to be going around in circles. It's sad because I planned on buying more as my printing business is growing. I hope this is resolved sooner than later. Good luck. Michael
Printed great right out of the box after careful setup and calibration. Has been printing flawlessly since.
Was almost going to cancel my order because i wasn't sure if it would be quicker to order from Amazon. Glad I didnt. Decided to leave a review because I was surprised at how quickly it arrived. The filament took a little longer but the printer came with some sample filament and I had already ordered some elsewhere so i was able to get printing asap. Great service, great product, arrived in great condition; got wonderfull prints from the first day. Already decided to order another printer. Thank you especialy kindly Zoey for your great customer service.
It is a awesome printer. my items are within a .001 in.
I would highly recommend the creality ender 3 pro to anyone that wants to print.
We had bought a different printer and had nothing but problems. Almost gave up on 3d printers all together. That was untill I found the creality3d.shop I ordered the printer and received it within 7 days. It was a dream to put together. Instructions are very clear and easy to read. With all the fluff out of the way. We have enjoyed this printer very much. Every filament used so far has been easy to get dialled in. Great investment. Will look forward to the second printer we are planning on purchasing from these guys. Love you and your great company.
Before buying I was reading a lot of reviews, good and bad. I was hesitant to buy because of the issues mentioned and this is my first 3D printer ever. I made the choice and I followed a couple of good YouTube videos on how to assemble the machine making sure everything is squared and aligned to perfection. I can see why people have issues, if you don’t spend the time making sure you are putting it right from the beginning you are going to have problems during the length of the use. For most part you can fix all the possible mechanical issues unless they are electric related. This is a very reliable machine, spend the time upfront t make sure you are putting it together right and you won’t have problems. My first print was a complete success.
Solid printer for my first setup. It's a little annoying to look for upgrades to find they only work with the 3 instead of the pro.
After taking forever to arrive with several disappointing and untrue emails about delivery time along the way, I finally got my Ender3 PRO and am super happy. Great community of people on Facebook and endless YouTube videos to learn. “Best printer for the money” is absolutely true.
I was able to assemble the machine pretty quickly without trouble. Setting it up to print is fairly easy as well. I have printed several parts with it so far without any troubles. I like this machine and look forward to picking another up in the near future.
Great Printer and at a great price.
Pretty much worked right out of the box. A couples hours to put together. A loose filament feeder nut was the only problem I’ve had.
This is my second printer and it probably should have been my first. The setup was just enough to let me get comfortable with the equipment while still remaining me this is a fledgling technology and a working knowledge of the parts and pieces is essential. I have had excellent results so far.
About my only complaint is that I think the default position of the z-axis stop is too high. The bed needed to be almost completely extended which led to the level nuts coming loose repeatedly. I found the issue was very common on line and moving the stop an eighth inch further down fixed the problems
The other thing that would be nice is an automated bed leveling program, basically a small circle that prints at each corner and a line that prints around the edges. That would have been nice when starting especially if the printer is not next to the computer
But I am very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone who asks.
Good price and product quality is awesome.
Assembled in a few hours with the help of a couple good YouTube videos. Took a few tries to get the bed leveled right, then started making good prints quickly. Like everyone else, I printed a few of the suggested mods, upgraded the bed springs, and installed the metal extruder clamp.
Worth every penny!
Setup was only 30 minutes, and calibration only took about 5 minutes to get quality prints. Very very quiet compared to other 3D printers I've used. Quality build, can't find any corners cut in my opinion.
And I didn't think I would be a fan of the magnetic build sheet, but the magnetic build sheet totally grew on me! Simple to use!
Would buy another unit in a heartbeat.
Just starting in 3D printing and I just love this machine! Best deal on the market. Assembly was fairly easy and packed very well. I have practically worn the flex mat out. Have ordered glass bed and a few other upgrades. Thinking of another purchase already.
Best printer! It’s open source, which allows you to use a lot of different programs to run it! Cheap and easy to assemble! Been running this printer non stop since purchased, do far so good! Completely satisfied with my purchase so far! :D
You never forget your first love. The Ender 3 Pro was mine. It helped teach me everything about 3D printing. I may have run into faster or better looking printers since then, but I still run my Ender Pro every day (and most nights). It will be with me as long as I am still printing. Now it's an invaluable part of my effort to print face shields for my community. It has been joined by my 3 other Creality printers, too. We're a family!
Very impressed with the overall quality of the printer. Assembly was very straight forward, requiring a few small alignments to fine tune it. I printed a few accessories for the printer (filament guide, filament spool fixture, cable clips, etc.) that gave me some immediate projects to work on. Runs like a champ.
I've had a couple of CR-10 printers for almost 3 years now and love them. I've been printing face shield parts to donate to the medical community to combat COVID-19. I wanted to increase my production so decided to add three Ender 3 printers. two of which are the Ender 3 Pro models which I do prefer for convenience. They've been so good I just added another Ender 3 Pro that I hope to set up today. Great little, affordable printers!
Absolutely love it! For the price this machine is a game changer. This is my first 3D printer and it is extremely user friendly. I have been working with 3D printers for a few years now and I decided to get one of my own for my house and I’m glad I picked the Ender 3. Assembly was made quicker with the help of YouTube, the instructions that come with the machine are pretty vague but it’s not a difficult machine to assemble. Just take your time to ensure you put it together correctly. I’m excited to start more prints when I get my spools of PLA in the mail. I’ve only had the Ender 3 for about a week now but so far I will absolutely recommend it to everyone. Extremely precise printing for the price. I plan on testing out some 3D printed parts for my cars, and when I start that process I will be doing recordings for my YouTube Channel. Check out Mile High Misfits on YouTube for my review in the near future!
It took some time to learn as I have never used a 3D printer until now. My son and I put it together and watched a few YouTube videos to learn what to do. I also had to learn leveling and ended up purchasing a glass bed which I highly recommend. We have made a few items and had a few minor disasters but overall I am so pleased.
For the price it really is hard to beat. It is a pretty big learning curve and of course you always end up spending money to upgrade. Making your 3d printing the best it can be. I love almost everything about this printer. Parts are very well made. The manual on the other hand was very disappointing. The internet is your friend when it comes to the proper assemble and alignment. But I will say the most disappointing thing I have seen is the build plate. The aluminum is fairly think but man is it out of level. When you have the adjustment correct for the corners you can place several pieces of paper between the nozzle and the plate. I would have thought the level would have been better on the Ender 3 Pro versed the standard Ender 3 . I now see why everyone places some sort of plate on the top of the bed.
This is really an amazing printer for the price. Watch several youtube videos on assembly tips BEFORE starting any assembly. Extra steps not shown in Creality's assembly instructions make things go much easier and give you better results. Once that's done it has been producing great parts. The printer's interface is pretty easy to use without even reading the instructions. Don't forget to look at other videos on how to use Cura or your slicer of choice because those instructions aren't well written either. The hardware is very nice. I'm thinking to buy another just so I can keep one up and running while doing a bunch of upgrades to the other.
This is the best gift ever soo xool stuff i can do
fast and super quiet compared to my original maker bot mini original this is my second 3d printer never built one before but i like building stuff took about an hour but i was happy when i was done and it fired right up and i started printing the maze file right away
Took me ~3h to build, and ~20 minutes to level the bed, but after that, I got a high-quality print right on the first try!
Overall thoughts: a good, inexpensive FDM printer that, with a little bit of effort, can produce prints of similar quality to those made by higher-end printers.
The first layer is sometimes challenging to get working properly, as the manual leveling process isn't necessarily the easiest thing in the world, but with enough patience and testing you'll get a fairly high quality base that, unless the printer's being moved around the house a lot, shouldn't need to be re-leveled for a long time. The extruder's a little annoying to load, as the filament will want to go in at an angle and completely miss the tiny feeding hole (meaning you'll have to bend the end of the filament a little), but once it's in, it's fed flawlessly every time I've used it.
These are my only qualms, though, and they're really only minor inconveniences more than anything else. It's been an excellent experience having this as a first printer, would definitely recommend to anyone on the fence about getting into 3D printing as a starter.
I found the adjustment wheels in the springs for the days are subpar you should include the upgrade right from the get go.
I noticed that the power supply rubs up against the molding pad they should be screwed on the outer edge of the rail instead of the inner. I also noticed that there seems to be a flat spot in my bed I haven’t run more than one item at a time so I don’t know if it’s going to affect my print jobs.
It's a little early to give a full review.
I would prefer that bed leveling would at least be an option at purchase.
When it works it’s great bed leveling not so great work Red Center is very low should have automatic leveling overall not bad a little confusing to operate comes with no instructions except assembly
Love learning about it. Have added a few printable modifications but not as many as I thought I would.
3d printing has a steeper learning curve than most people expect, but is very rewarding. Mainly bed leveling is something that takes a little practice. I love it though.
It was perfect timing I got it just before all the COVID19 stuff so I am able to print some face-masks for health care workers.
Printer received within 5 days quick shipping. Printer setup little tricky as it was my first 3D printer. Lot's of help on the web made setup and tuning easier. Overall pleased with performance and consistency of the printer.
I have had this thing running for over a week straight making terrain tiles for my games. It was easy to set up, if you follow the instructions. After pay attention to how to set it up, I was printing that same day.
As a first timer the ender 3 pro was easy to set up and its online community was incredibly helpful. Once I learned to level the bed properly things started to get really interesting. Phenomenal little printer!
Great first printer! Easy to assemble and ready to print, wonderful
Amazing printer. Print quality out of the box Is fantastic, and even better with small fine tuning. It’s quiet, built exceptionally well, and the design is super functional and efficient. The magnetic heated bed design makes removal of prints super clean and easy, with no scraper needed most of the time. My Ender 3 Pro prints just as good, if not even better than my $1200 printer I’ve had for 3 years. They really nailed it with the 3 Pro. Best off all, the price can not be beat for a printer of this quality and functionality.
this is my first 3d printer the direction to put it together was little confusing thank to youtube i seen better detail to put the ender 3 pro together but overall it works great its not crap i very much enjoy it looking to buy another printer just to mess around with
I was looking for a new hobby, something creative and relatively speaking, cheap.
Thus far I've enjoyed it. Setup was both simple and complex in ways that I enjoy. So far, refining what I have and am able to do with the printer has been my focus, and quite enjoyable.
