    • Decent print quality out of the box
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of “quality of life” touches


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

    Creality sets a new baseline for budget 3D printing. It’s the same old Ender 3 experience, improved with current hardware that includes a 32-bit mainboard, silent stepper motor drivers, a much cleaner appearance and design, plus plenty of other, smaller, touches.
    Old Ender problems persist, such as the filament feed opening being in a difficult to use place, but these grumbles aside, there’s a lot to the Ender 3 V2 that makes it worthy of the hype.

    Gone from the Ender 3 V2 are the boxy metal enclosures of previous Ender 3 models. On the Ender 3 V2, we find tidy new molded plastic panels across the printer, which, at the detriment of being, obviously, plasticky, distances the Ender 3 V2 from a semblance of tinkerability of its predecessors. (Even though the Ender 3 V2 is every bit as modifiable as its predecessors – there’s just more plastic to unscrew first.)

    With this new aesthetic, the Ender 3 V2 looks much more, dare we say it, professional? Not in the sense of the printer’s performance, more that it is less of an eyesore for those without a dedicated workshop where it’s acceptable for screws, rods, extrusions, and all manner of stuff to be on show. As is increasingly common, the power supply has moved into the base of the printer, which, again, gives a sleeker and more streamlined look.

    Despite the numerous new light-touch changes to the machine, the Ender 3 V2 is, at its core, very much the same as the Ender 3. The same 220 x 220 x 250 mm build volume, with a single hot end fed by a Bowden extruder, offline printing via microSD, and manual bed leveling. In fact, looking at the specs on paper, you’d barely be able to tell the two apart.

    This sameness carries through to the print quality, which, for a ~$250 machine, is really quite good. For the majority of our continued time printing with the Ender 3 V2, we have been using the stock Ender 3 Pro profile in Cura 4.6.1, and it practically sings (both retraction and layer-change behavior need fine-tuning, but otherwise this is a functional starting point.)


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

    Tempered Glass Print Bed

    The most notable new feature is the V2’s tempered “Carborundum” (Silicon carbide) coated glass print bed. This is a welcome change from the detachable magnetic heated bed of the Ender 3 Pro, which was prone to accumulate filament residue over time, which every 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.

    Quieter Printing

    Creality boasts a new feature: A self-developed “silent” 32-bit motherboard with a 2560 chipset that 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. While we can confirm that the noise of the motors is much quieter, the power supply fan, and fans in general, remain quite loud.

    Color Screen

    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, though, which makes for some moments of confusion each time we forget and try to use it as a touch screen.

    Additional Features

    • XY-axis tensioner: New to the Ender series are two knobs that will let you tighten the printer’s belts. This is a helpful feature, in the long run, allowing you to adjust belt tensions as your printer gets older.
    • 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 more easily load the filament by hand, purge the nozzle, or watch it spin as the print is running.
    • 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 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.
