    Creality Ender-3 3d printer has always been praised as the best-pick-up for 3D printing hobbyists due to its reliability and affordability. Since its release, Creality Ender-3 3d printer has achieved amazing sales records, a total annual shipment of 100,000 pieces.

    With conclusions drawn from audiences, Creality Ender-3 3D Printer is an extraordinary 3D printer when you take the sub-$200 price tag into consideration.

    Though it is actually a budget 3D printer, Creality Ender-3 3d printer can achieve performance comparable to many high-end machines in the market. For instance, the wide material compatibility will make it more versatile than its peer machine.

    Before we probe into its filament compatibility and print performance, we would like to gain some understanding about its components which will affect the performance of various filaments.

    What Impacts Material Compatibility?

    Hot end: Creality Ender-3 3d printer has a reliable hot-end which easily reach up to 280°C. However, as it is not an all-metal hot-end, so the temperature is limited to 240°C because of the use of PTFE tubing and the quality of the components it's made of. Otherwise, Creality Ender-3 3d printer is supposed to quite versatile in printing with a variety of plastics, such as PLA, ABS, TPU, and even PETG.

    Nozzle: The standard 0.4-mm brass nozzle made use of on the Creality Ender-3 3d printer will certainly give you superb printing performance with a wide range of filaments. You can't make use of unpleasant materials, though, because those would certainly eat through the brass very swiftly.

    Heated bed: The Creality Ender-3 3d printer has an integrated heated bed that can reach temperature up to 110 ° C, which will allow you to print with products susceptible to bending, such as ABS.

  • I see that ASA does not have a large fan base. My application will be clips mounted on the roof to make setting up my Christmas lights a snap. But I dont see much discussion about this filament and the Ender -3 V2. Is it possible with this unit stock or will I need to upgrade some parts of my printer? I just stumbled across what everyone calls E-steps. And I am not sure what I finially did to get it to save the setting. My marked filament showed that I was like 15mm shy of the 100mm target. So, my filament started to stick to the bed, but while drawing out a circle, it would get about 25% drawn and then the filament would start to move with the nozzle till it was a wad.

    Sure would be nice if Creality would have a manual that would go a wee bit deeper into the various settings and what they are for.

  • You can Use PLA, ABS, or other filaments with similar printing temperatures and settings. you could upgrade the hot end to a better, higher capability one to print in nylon, so similar filaments.
