Fully Upgraded Ender-3, Version 2
Another time-lapse build and reviews by Peter Ong from Prototechies:
Note: This is the latest Creality Ender-3 V2 version of 3D Printer DIY (Do It Yourself) Kit.
Creality Ender-3 V2 Upgrades:
- MEANWELL Power Supply: This is being used in Ender-3 PRO and provides a very stable and reliable power source for it. The V2 remains the MeanWell power supply, which is produced by the listed company with mature technology, and it meets all the needs of fast heating and long-time 3D printing. The printer is shielded by its power supply from voltage spikes and power outages. If electrical power is lost, prints can be resumed from the last layer, saving time and reducing waste.
- Carborundum Glass Print Bed: The carborundum glass platform enables the hotbed to heat up quicker and prints adhere better. Ultra smoothness even on 1st layer. And it can support higher temperatures to support more filament types.
- 4040 ALUMINIUM EXTRUSION for Y-AXIS: Again, this is being applied on Ender-3 PRO and get much feedback that it provides more stable print bed and better printing quality. It is on Ender-3 V2 too. The 4040 extrusion on Y-axis offers less wobbling print bed.
- 32-bit MCU with SILENT Driver: Updated mainboard with silent TMC220X stepper drivers. Compared to the Ender 3 and Ender 3 PRO, the V2 delivers out-of-the-box experience and silence-oriented upgrades(quieter 3D printers) to the user. The new controller will ensure smooth movement under 50dB, and no noise during printing.
- Colorful LCD + Updated UI: The V2 comes with colorful LCD and the User Interface firmware is also updated. It is simple and quick to interface!
- New Injection Tensioner: The XY-axis now comes with injection tensioner with a knob. It is now super easy to adjust the belt of both axes.
- Rotary Knob for Extruder: Many users added this by themselves, yet Creality listens to feedback and includes a knob on the extruder. Now it is very convenient to load and feed filament.
- An Integrated Toolbox: This is not a big deal, but many users have 3D printed a toolbox for Ender-3 and Ender-3 PRO underneath the print bed to store tools and small spare parts. The new Ender-3 V2 comes with this toolbox preinstalled, making your 3D printing work easier and convenient, of course, the printing area is also tidier.
Generally, Creality Ender-3 Features:
- HIGH-POWERED, SAFE POWER SUPPLY: The Ender 3 3D Printer comes with a high-quality power supply, with two separate fuses to protect your printer from unexpected power surges, that can heat the build surface to 100ºC in just 5 minutes!
- PARTIALLY-ASSEMBLED KIT: The lower base and all wiring completed in our factory. This kit style 3D printer comes with all tools included and is a great project for middle school and high school-aged students. The perfect gift to spark a lifelong love for science and engineering, and provide a deeper understanding of machinery and robotics!
- Resume Printing after power-off: ender three could resume prints after a power outage or lapse occurs
- Easy and Quick Assembly: Though many claims it only requires only 10 minutes with 20 screws assembly before the first printing, from our experience, it may take 1 to 2 hours of assembly work depending on your skill level :) Yet, once it is assembled and calibrated it is worth the time and learning, Win-Win for fun and time.
- Reach 100℃ for hotbed in about 5 minutes, meet the needs of fast heating and printing ABS
- CNC machining of the Y-rail mounting groove to make sure precise positioning and keep the solid frame with the high-precision printing quality. And big hand twist nut, make the print platform easier to level.

- We notice the microSD card from the factory is formated into NTFS instead of FAT32, and the Ender-3 V2 is not able to display files within the folder including the sample print gcode. You use the microSD card reader, insert it to your computer, move the gcode files to the drive (not in any folder) or format the microSD card to FAT32 (make sure you copy the entire content of the microSD card first).
- Please read and follow the user manual carefully before you assemble or operate the 3D printer.
- Modification and customization of the 3D printer are allowed but we will take no responsibility for any problems resulting from modifications.
- Always use the correct AC voltage for your region.
- Please do not place the 3D printer near flammable/combustible materials, or any heat sources.
- Use the 3D printer only in properly ventilated areas. Maintain a safe distance from the printer.
- Because it is Do It Yourself (DIY) kit, the warranty does not cover the damage during assembly.
