Printer Guide | Ender-3 V2 Review: In-depth Hands-on Testing by David Zhang a Creality User in China

David Zhang, a 23-year-old university student majoring in Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China, received the Ender-3 V2 DIY 3d printer a few days ago. So excite did he write an in-depth review on Ender-3 V2 based on his first try on Creality Ender-3 V2.
 
“I learned that Ender-3 V2 got over pre-orders for over 8,000 pieces right after it was released at the Creality 6th Anniversary Celebration, and I was one of the preorder customers. I was so lucky to get one on Wednesday, April 23rd. I am a loyal fan of Creality 3D printers, and I am so excited to try on the new generation of Creality Ender-series 3D printer,” said David Zhang.
 
Appearance
Though the Ender-3 V2 shares the same structure with the original Ender-3, there are some upgrades and differences making the V2 more outstanding.
The Ender-3 V2 revamps the nozzle design with an integrated nozzle cover, which makes the nozzle protected in a better way.




The belt tensioner: This is really desirable function for me. With the two adjustable tensioners on X-axis and Y-axis, it will help the machine to prolong the overall service life.




Toolbox: This is gonna be one of the favorite add-ons on Ender-3 V2 DIY 3d printer kit. The toolbox will enable you to store and fetch all the necessary tools you need during the printing, such as nozzles, needles, pliers, and blade.



Screen: The Ender-3 V2 is utilizing an HD LCD full-color screen, which clearly displays all the information including the printing parameters, printing process, the machine information, and more. Based on the first experience on Ender-3 V2, it is found that the rotary knob on the Ender-3 V2 screen is quite flexible to use. The user interface is the latest Creality UI in simple design, which enables users to enjoy responsive interaction on Ender-3 V2.




Testing
The model we tested is a special test model for 3D printers. No support is added. You can see that there are many testing aspects, including the longest drawing distance, the maximum angle, and different shape tests. Let's take a look at how Ender-3 V2 performs.


The unsupported maximum angle test: The sagging begins after 70 degrees, and there will be a slight dropping below 70 degrees. The front text starts to blur gradually at 50 degrees, but it does not affect the overall effect. Among the current domestic 3D printers It seems to be quite effective.




The farthest wire drawing distance test: It can be seen that the heat dissipation performance is excellent in the span of 25mm, and the shape is basically free of deformation.



The round and square tests: The outline of the square is relatively clean, but the outline of the circle is not very standard.



The hollow cylinder test: The outer surface is very smooth, and the inner wall is slightly brushed. The amount of extrusion set by the software is a little too large, resulting in a little accumulation at the top.



The character test print: the surface quality is smooth, the curve is very smooth, and the details are also perfectly displayed.



Overall, the performance of this second-generation product is still very satisfactory, because some of the upgrades this time are not very large, but they are combined with the feedback of many users to upgrade. I hope everyone will support them in the future. Any improvement suggestions can also be fed back in time so that we can make better products. Remember to try the new ones after the new products are released!
