Difference between Creality Ender 3 series – Ender 3 VS Ender 3 Pro VS Ender 3 V2 Vs CR6 SE: The Differences
Creality Ender 3 & Ender 3 Pro DIY 3D printer has just won the title of 2020 Best 3D Printer on the ALL3DP platform.
Since the birth of Ender 3 & Ender 3 Pro, it has been greatly loved by users It is rated as the most cost-effective DIY 3d printer by the majority of users because of its ease of assembly, improvement acceptable, and excellent print model quality.
Many customers across India have shared with us the joy of getting the machine and brought some changes in life. In order to continue the classics, Creality has made some upgrades and improvements to this machine.
Recently, the advent of the upgraded version of Creality 3d printer kit Ender 3 V2 has attracted everyone’s attention and also launch of their CR6 Se version on the kickstarter campaign.
Many users are very looking forward to this machines, but at the same time, it has also caused some confusion on Indian consumers on what is the differences.
What is the difference between Ender 3 V2, Ender 3, CR6 SE and Ender-3 Pro? They look almost the same, what are the upgrade parts and functions? what is the price? Which one is a better one? Let us figure out in detail some commons and differences among them.
The original cartesian principle design is retained, the appearance of Ender 3 V2 and Ender 3 looks almost the same, and the original printing size is 220 * 220 * 250mm. According to the feedback of most customers, the customer’s ender-3 size is relatively satisfactory.
What is the difference?
Upgraded Ender 3 _ the Basic Version 3D Printer
As a basic version. Ender 3 is quite easy to assembly, although the manual calibration is required, the improved large levelling knob makes it more convenient.
Many users mentioned that Ender 3 far exceeds their expectations. It still available to print PLA, PETG, ABS, TPU and other filaments, because of its relatively high performance, its’structure is made by the ordinary profiles, and the cables out of the machine might look a little bit messy. So its appearance does look relatively common.
Besides that, it still performs very well, especially the models’ prints out with high precision. I believe that users have some basic understanding of the Ender 3 3d printer, and there are also many evaluations of Ender 3 on YouTube.
There are several features that make the Creality Ender 3 a suitable 3d printer for beginners.
Its’platform is a build task-like heated build plate while Ender 3 Pro comes with flexible removal magnetic platform. Some users have pointed out that sometimes wobbles happened while printing.
Creality realizes that the Y profile that comes with the Ender 3 is not wider enough. And dust exists on the bottom part sometimes. But it is understandable because of its’ price under Rs. 19000.
How about the Ender-3 Pro?
Base on the upgradable points that users mentioned. There comes Ender 3 Pro with wider 40*40 aluminum extrusion for the Y-axis base. which greatly improves stability.
And better bearing wheels deliver more stiffness, reduce friction, and give overall better dimensional stability. This and some broad rubber feet also help to reduce the noise level.
The first version of Ender 3 had a fan on the top of the printer base, which made it easy to drop filaments.
On Ender 3 Pro, Creality has placed this fan on the bottom of the 3D printer, perfectly prevent the filament dust drop in the platform. More details about the difference between these two 3d printers, you can check our Ender-3 VS Ender-3 Pro- the difference.
Creality Ender 3 V2– 2020 New Released 3D Printer under Rs. 30000
Ender 3 V2 will be the high recommended 3d printer that we would like to introduce today in India.
Why there’s new ender 3 upgrade version? Might some users curious about that. As for the better user experience I mentioned previously, Creality makes this decision to do the upgrades.
1.Sheet metal injection design
Unlike Ender 3, Ender 3 V2 is a phenomenal 3d printer with a new sheet metal injection design. It seems to be more in line with the aesthetic design.
All the cables are neatly designed and hidden. In addition, the new nozzle basic kit design surprised us. The overall structural design looks more high-end and safer.
2.4.3 inch HD color screen
Without adding with the old knob screen design, Creality Ender 3 V2 3d printer is equipped with a 4.3 inch HD color screen, the clear screen design makes the whole machine instantly different.
What is more unexpected is that this screen is detachable. As long as the cable is connected, you can remove the screen, which making this machine more flexible to control.
3.Tempered Glassed Platform
After several times tested, Creality finds out tempered Glassed Platform with better adherence, and the model can be easier removed but not damage the models. Anyhow, later all-new Creality will come with the tempered glassed platform.
Some customer has mentioned that the timing belt is not tight enough for model printing, sometimes the model comes out ugly. Our teams designed to add these two XY-axis tensioner to help tension the belt when it is loose.
Embedded in the base, there will be a tool storing box hidden under the platform. All the tools like needles, pliers and other tools are in the box already, we believe that you will love this little surprise.
6.32-bit Silent Mother Board
The noise that comes with the printer has been drive users crazy most of the time. As the ender 3 pro does, Creality Ender 3 V2 now has the silent 32-bit motherboard with a 2530 chipset inside as well.
7. Rotary knob added on the extruder
We both know when we put the filament into the extruder, it’s a little difficult to feed-in. So Creality adds a rotary knob on the extruder to operate conveniently. And what’s more, we need to press the extrusion clamp to feed-in, sometimes, the extrusion clamp is easy to be broken, so the rotary knob is a very friendly design.
8. Resume after a power outage function
Resume after a power outage function will be added on Creality Ender 3 V2 3D Printer . all you can tell is that this time all the upgrades on the Ender 3 V2 are totally based on our user experience. 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.
Differences between Ender 3 V2 and CR6 Se:
Ender 3 V2 and CR 6 SE are both pre-assembled 3D printer kits, utilizing the mechanical arrangement of Cartesian XZ-head. Compared to Ender 3 V2, CR6 SE is of a simpler structure in 5 different parts, which only takes 5 mins to finish its assembly. Ender 3 V2 will take about 15 mins. Ender 3 Pro and Ender 3 will take approx 90 -120 mins.
In terms of print size, CR 6 SE is having a larger printing volume. Ender 3 V2 is sharing the same print volume of 220x220x250mm with its predecessor Ender 3 or ender 3 pro, and the print size of CR 6 SE is 235x235x250mm.
In terms of motion stability, Ender 3 V2 is having Single Z-axis, while the CR 6 SE is having dual Z-axis with a timing belt, which means that the CR 6 SE will have higher motion stability and balance during printing.
In terms of printing performance, both Ender 3 V2 and CR 6 SE are doing a great job in delivering quality prints. One more highlight the CR6 SE will excel Ender 3 V2 is silent printing because CR6 SE is having a powerful cooling fan which is also silent as well, whereas Ender 3 V2 comes with a standard cooling fan. In this way, CR 6 SE can print under 30dB and Ender 3 V2 prints under 50dB.
Compared to Ender 3 V2, CR6 SE is going to provide a much easier and friendlier user experience as it is boasting a 4.3inch HD cooler touch screen to display all necessary information in Chinese and English. However, Ender3 V2 has a 4.3inch color screen with a knob. Therefore, the user navigation on CR6 SE is more intuitive and responsive than that on Ender3 V2.
The two printers are both smart enough to allow users to count on. Ender3 V2 and CR6 SE are having resume printing function. CR6 SE, in a different way, is utilizing a photoelectric sensor that is more sensitive than physical sensors on Ender3 V2.
As both newly developed and released in 2020, Ender3 V2 and CR6 SE are both designed to make 3D printing easier. Considering the practical mods, CR6 SE will excel Ender3 V2. Except for the belt tensioner on Ender3 V2, CR-6 SE is boasting more:
1. The portable carry handle enables users to carry the machine to everywhere.
2. The built-in toolbox with tools brings all the necessary tools within users’ reach.
3. The foldable filament holder helps to save your space if needed.
4. The stepper motor cover helps to protect the stepper motors from dust and prolong their service life.
5. The silicone hotbed cable protector guarantees electric safety.
6. The hotbed fixators allow removing the print platform in an easier way.
When it comes to the power supply, both printers can switch between 115V and 230V at one step to suit different customer demands, and providing a powerful power supply at 350W.
Upgraded from the original Ender3, Ender3 V2 finally gets the notable Carborundum glass platform as same as that is on CR6 SE. The carborundum glass platform enables quick heating up and stronger bed adhesion and easy removal of prints as well.
