[EN] Ender 3 V2

This article talks about the Ender 3 V2 3D printer, which is an improvement from Creality’s most popular models, Ender 3, Ender 3 Pro, with improvements in ease of assembly, usability, part quality, etc. This 3D printer is almost ideal for beginners who are just getting started with 3D printing.

This model has the same layout as most FDM printers. The base which controls the printing on the Y-axis (Figure 2) is the vertical axis holder. The two axes are attached to the horizontal axis used as the X-axis (Figure 3). The Z-axis is attached to the base with a pole to drive the position of the axis as shown in Figure 4.

The printer is a Bowden tube type, which has a cable to send the line to the melt head. The line drive motor is positioned on the X-axis through the print head assembly (Figure 5), a rotating menu control screen (Figure 6), and a filament reel holder on top (Figure 7).

Usage experience

Using this printer for a while starts with assembling the parts received from the factory. It’s easy enough for beginners. But putting it to good use can take some experience. The menu is not complicated.

In printing, it can be fine-tuned during printing, which allows us to adjust the Z-axis level immediately so that we do not need to start typing again when there is a Z-axis sensor discrepancy, such as when moving to the Home position and the Z-axis is too high will cause the filament to not stick to the base or too low, causing the print head to not push the line out as it should. We can adjust it to the right position immediately.

As for the results obtained from a machine assembled by a newbie, it is considered a satisfactory result, but it may take a bit of experience in tuning the machine at some points for better results.

For this printer, it is suitable for beginners because it can be assembled easily, easy to use, the performance is quite good and it can also be tuned for better results by both assembly and adjustments. in the control software.
