Cost Effective

By eliminating the high retail markup, SainSmart is able to offer a sensible package with unrivaled quality in the entry-level space. The compact design allows Ender-3 to fit in the trunk of your car or even back seat,  while still providing 6x more build volume than other entry-level printers.

High Precision & Noiseless

The CNC-machined Y-axis mounting slot ensures highly precise positioning of the printer head. V-slot POM (polyoxymethylene) wheels allow the nozzle to glide smoothly and silently.

No Clogging or Warping

Our patented extruder design greatly reduces the risk of a clogged nozzle. There’s no need for printing tape or glue due to the incorporation of a new viscous platform sticker.

Fast Heating & Resume Print Feature

The heated bed can reach its operating temperature in just five minutes. 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.


This easy-to-setup kit comes partially assembled, allowing you to learn about the basic construction of 3D printers as you finish putting it together. A fun STEM educational experience in mechanical engineering and electronics.

Tips about Levelling

If you happened to receive a severely bowed bed plate after unboxing, please contact us immediately for a replacement. If it is a slight curve (±0.2mm), you could manage to fix it through the following steps.

  • Adjust the bed step-by-step according to the User Manual (see page 20). If the central part is uneven while the corners are flat, please try to level the bed on each of the four corners meticulously.
  • After finishing the steps on the manual, if it is still uneven, please try to print by adding raft in CURA.

Creality3D Ender-3 3D Printer

Very easy to assemble but if you go to the Creality web site you will find a better set of instructions, which I downloaded and printed is 14 pages long but is you can use two sided printing it is down to just 7 pages. The test print that came on the SD card took 5 hrs and 33 minutes to print but the detail was amazing. Just go through the steps for leveling the bed and yuou will not have any problems.

Would it **** them to include real instructions?

I fought for hours against the unhelpful and ambiguous pictures, together with the totally missing text instructions, to try to assemble the machine before I finally realized that I needed to search YouTube for help, where I found mention of more complete instructions on the included SD card. There was no mention of this in the included, printed, "Quick Start" manual -- that would have been nice to know before I reached the point where I was ready to pitch everything out the window.

Ender 3 Pro

Great for the beginner to learn to 3D print. Good quality machine that will do many projects for the experienced as well.

Tough little machine

I own 4 of these printers. They are work great once you figure out each of their little quirks. I use each of them on a constant basis for building props and other little doodads for around the house. They are the work horses of my shop and I couldn't be happier. The build plate size is pretty on par with other printers. The full size of the printer is nice and fits nicely on a sturdy shelf or desktop. As for the position of the spool holder, I have mine coming off of the size and I have found that to be less stressful on the filament. There are tons of upgrades and things you can print out to make your printer unique. If you are looking for a sturdy and well built printer, this is what you need.

Great machine

This has been a fantastic machine for the price paid. Prints come out clean, and it was easy to assemble and use.

I love this printer

This isn't my first Ender 3 and i haven't had time to print with it yet, but it went together beautifully and was delivered faster than I thought!

Awesome 3D Printer at a very affordable price!

This is my very first exposure to 3D printing. I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole assembly project and use at first, but taking things one step at a time helped greatly. The assembly booklet is essential drawing based, but simple enough to follow. I assembled the printer much faster than the time I thought it would take. I found a Youtube video online to help me with initial and first print. Issue fixed: I found that Z-axis (up-down) motor was grinding gears and not moving the bar with the heating element up and down. After googling on binding issue with Z-axis on Ender 3, if found that I simply had to loosen the two screws that hold the threader for the large Z-axis up/down rod (works like a nut). The torque required after that was dramatically less for the motor to turn the Z-bolt, thus allowing the motor to handle the torque required. Lots learned and as my attached video shows, I am printing the first test SD file that is on the micro SD card (3D Dog print). Overall, I am extremely happy with this product (once I finally found out how to fix the Z-axis movement issue). I look forward to installing and printing the Eiffel Tower next (mini-replica of course ;-) )!!! Great product for the money!

Great printer for the price!

So far I've made my money back and then some with this printer. Between printing upgrades for other things and printing items I need around the house (and replacement parts for broken gear) it's been a great investment!

Pretty great

If you're a handy person at all this will be super worth it. There are some fidgety things to mess with that will make printing better. But it was a good investment in some tech that is fun to mess with. I did notice that part cooling fan is a little noisy but I'm going to replace them with 5015s anyways. Do your research and buy this thing. My print quality is great.

Totally worth the time, money, and efforts!

easy to install - all the main pieces were already assembled and all you gotta do is tighten them in the right place, took over an hour for a full install but not more than 2. Also, you can see quality of craftsmanship in the product, its packaging and instructions. - the provided micro SD card has all instructions and drivers PLUS a setup video which isn't listed in the product page. - print quality is amazing! Very reminiscent of my first 3d printer - it can print high quality prints and fast too!! I can't believe it's listed 180mm/s, cura won't let it go past 150. At those speeds, details are harder to make out on small print outs so use fast speeds for larger not-detailed prints. - heated bed and aluminum frame is a LOT better than wood you find on some 3d printers. Those made of skimpy wood have a tendency to warp over time or break as the wood ages and cannot be transported also becomes misaligned...none of those problems exist with this printer. - excellent customer service - I thought the printer needed reprogramming, it turns out I didn't attach a sensor cable to the sensor (doh!) Problem got solved and I have an awesome printer!! - my first 3d printer got used heavily for about 1.5years and it lasted for 3. I have a feeling this one will last even longer, totally worth the price. Oh the frame moves a bit, not the end of the world at all. No need to cry. The printer is amazing. You can add an adhesive as a way to stabilize the base. The printer doesn't wobble, it can slightly move if someone applies force on it...also depends on the flatness of surface where the printer is on.
