Ender-3 V2 Upgrade

Are you looking for an incredibly cost-friendly 3D printer that will deliver for you the right results? What is a DIY 3D printer price? The Ender-3 V2 3D printer may be just what you need. It is becoming a go-to model for 3D printing beginners and enthusiasts. The Ender 3 V2 printer is the next generation upgrade that follows the Ender 3 and Ender 3 Pro models.

The Ender 3 printer is a pre-assembled toolkit. However, before you can use it, you need to follow a simple assembly process consisting of 12 steps. It may seem simple, but if you fail to follow the instructions as given, you may not get it right.

The printer has a minimalistic design with a small compact build since the control panel and the printer are connected. Although the Ender 3 printer may be a good option, it still has some flaws that we cannot rule out, such as an unsteady base.

Therefore, Creality decided to make an upgrade and fix some of the troubling issues.

But what makes the Ender 3 V2 better than the previous versions of Ender 3? It has some features that were not present in the other Ender series printers. Such featured include:

Glass print bed

The glass print bed of the Ender 3 V2 is from a carborundum, a material that helps to increase the adhesion of the print bed. It also makes it easier to clean the print bed surface after it has cooled down. The bed is quite different from that of the Ender 3 Pro. For Ender 3 Pro, after using the bed from some time, it accumulates filament residue, which makes the initial layers to look ugly. The surface is not as easy to clean as that of carborundum glass.


Creality decided to upgrade the printer’s electronics with a silent motherboard that helps to eliminate noise when it is in operation. The 2560 chipset helps to reduce noise from the operating 3D printer up to 50 decibels.


Initially, the printers from Creality were only using a cheap LCD. The company decided to change the user interface to a colored screen, improving the customer experience. The new display on the Ender 3 V2 added some new features that give you access to extra data while the printer is busy.

Final Thoughts -Tool Drawer

All the other Ender 3 version did not have a tool drawer. Instead, you would have to 3D print one for yourself. However, Ender 3 V2 helps to save both your time and filament by having a place where you can store your spare parts, accessories, and tools.

While the upgrade actualized several changes, not everything was changed. A good example is the basic frame design that the older models of Ender 3 use are still the same as those Ender 3 V2 uses. When you consider all the upgrades done on the Ender 3 V2, there are only slight changes that differentiate it from Ender 3 Pro.

However, while it still maintains some qualities of the older models, the Ender 3 V2 printer gives a better out of the box experience. It is notably one of the best printers to use if you prefer some quiet.
