Ender 3 Pro - An Entry Level Essential
The Ender 3 Pro threads the needle between being affordable and capable, making it a great starter for anyone looking to find their entry into the 3D printing industry. With some basic sub-assembles it takes a little over one hour to go from unboxed to printing.
- Build Volume: 220 x 220 x 250 mm
- Simple construction means easy assembly
- Assemble a huge print farm for a low cost
Upgradeable, Modifiable, and a Large Community to Back It
Because of its low-cost and simple construction, the Ender 3 has a large community of users and modders that collaborate and solve problems together. You can find modifications for different hotends, extruders, mainboards, even completely reconstructing the entire frame.
- Aluminum extrusion frame makes it easy to mount accessories.
- Thousands of modifications available
- Dozens of communities for support
MicroSwiss All-Metal HotendSome materials necessitate a higher printing temperature than the standard Ender 3 Pro can achieve. By bundling the MicroSwiss All-Metal Hotend, you can immediately upgrade your Ender 3 Pro without any permanent modification, soldering, or crimping.
- Same form factor as standard hotend
- Increases maximum printing temperature from 260°C to 300°C
- Requires firmware upgrade to allow higher temperatures.
Flexible and Magnetic Build Plate
Removing 3D prints after they are completed is often a challenge for 3D printer newcomers. By using a BuildTak Flexplate you are able to remove the entire build plate from the 3D printer, flex and twist it, and the 3D print pops right off, leaving the build plate ready to reinstall and begin the next print.
- Existing magnetic base provides strong hold on build plate
- Spring steel sheet can be flexed and twisted over and over to remove 3D print.
- Purchase extra spring steel sheets to swap between build plate materials.
American Made, High Quality PLA Bundle
Our PRO Series filament has remained the quintessential choice for everyone since we require exacting results for our products and projects. Our attention to precise filament tolerance, strict coloration guidelines, and definitive chemical patterns are reflected directly in your completed products. Make completely certain your 3D prints come out perfect by sticking with PRO Series PLA, included in this bundle!
- Tightly controlled diameter, ±0.02mm from nominal.
- Color checked for spool-to-spool color consistency
- Mechanical properties tested and formulated for 3D printing.
