Creality Ender 3 V2: Review the Specs - PrinterMods UK Ltd

Creality’s classic Ender 3 gets a major upgrade. Join us as we review the specs of the Ender 3 V2.

Creality’s Ender 3 has long been one of our favorites when it comes to affordable 3D printers. Sure, it’s far from perfect. But it boasts a price under £250, offers a decent print volume, is easy to assemble and improve, and can produce high-quality prints.

With the original Ender 3 looking a bit basic these days, Creality looked for ways to improve their classic.

The Chinese manufacturer did reveal most of the tech specs, and there are still plenty of interesting changes to be found in the Ender 3 V2.

While the dimensions look almost identical to the Ender 3 and the Ender 3 Pro, the Ender 3 V2 differs in its features.

Here’s what’s new:

The most notable new feature is the V2’s tempered “Carborundum” glass print bed. This is a welcome change from the detachable magnetic heated bed of the Ender 3 Pro. These beds were prone to accumulate filament residue over time, which ever so often resulted in ugly first layers.

The glass print bed is mounted on the aluminum plate, which should improve overall material adhesion, makes the surface flatter, and lets you remove prints much more easily.

Creality boasts a new feature: A self-developed “silent” 32-bit motherboard with a 2560 chipset brings down the noise floor of the printer to an astonishing 50 decibels, comparable to a quiet suburb, a conversation at home, or the noise of a large electrical transformer at 100 feet. We’re looking forward to measuring this feature.

Most budget printers come with a cheap LCD screen, but Creality now throws in a newly developed color screen that also shows a new user interface. Screen options are still navigated by a click-wheel.

XY-axis tensioner: New to the Ender series are two knobs that will let you tighten the printer’s belts. We can’t really tell if they will bring better results or if this is something no-one needs, as most of these belts are already pre-tensioned and work without problems.

Mean Well power supply: Like the Ender 3 Pro, the Ender 3 V2 is equipped with a Mean Well power supply.
Manual filament feeding: Creality added a rotary knob on the Bowden feeding mechanism so you can load the filament by hand if you want to do so.

Toolbox: Embedded in the base you’ll find a little compartment for storing nozzles, needles, pliers and other tools. We already love this one.
Resume after a power outage: This perk was made popular by the Prusa i3 MK3 3D printer. Outages or disconnections should be no problem for Ender 3 V2 because it can fully recover and resume the print when it’s back up.
