    Good price but quality isn't as good i.e bowden tube and nozzle also if its not a glass bed. Two friends of mine bought this same printer and had spent a similar amount of money upgrading/fixing it. Probably total cost for it to operate smoothly $550 (incl printer price). Two of these as well as a CR10S Pro were used in our Mechanical Engineering department

    • You seem to have good knowledge about 3D printers. I've been wanting to get one myself but just don't know what to get. Any advise on a specific brand and/or model for beginners that can be sourced from within NZ?

        Ender 3 is definitely a good starter 3D printer but make sure you get a glass bed so your prints are level. Otherwise you'll rip the aluminium bed surface off when trying to take your print off and trust me, this happens a lot which is why I have upgraded my CR10S to a flexible bed.

        Negatives of this printer:
        1) Current bed material (can upgrade to glass bed)
        2) Louder fan
        3) No auto levelling so every 2 prints you have to use either a paper or special aluminium tool to level to nozzle with the bed(most tedious part because you have to do it often)
        4) Small bed size (larger prints off thingiverse, you'll have to split the print in half)
        5) Filament is exposed (exposed filament clogs the nozzle because plastic is porous it soaks up the water in humid air which is why my mate cnc'd a box with silica gel to put my filament in)
        6) Cheap parts which will most likely break in the first few prints which you'll then have to buy off aliexpress and wait a whole month
        7) Mostly sensor and nozzle issues. You'll have to buy spare nozzles and sensors! Nozzles need changing when they start turning black and sensors break easily unless you upgrade to a BL Touch sensor(same amount as the printer - its German)

        Cheap printer

        Honestly the most pain in the ass thing is levelling because the extrusion rate from the nozzle is also affected by the humidity (unless you can put your printer in a really dry room) you'll have different levelling settings through winter,summer,spring,autumn. You can spend up to an hour just to try get the bed level this is why I went with the CR10S Pro that comes with auto levelling.

        My mate said get Prusa printer if you have the money otherwise the higher end Creality printers are good off the shelf with a little tinkering. There's a few NZ companies that are selling the CR10S Pro for $1400 like mine but firstly decide if you want to go with Delta or Cartesian FDM printer.

  • Cheaper at banggood at the moment $328 shipped. check ozbargain thread

  • I would go with the Ender 3 Pro instead.

    A better and safer PSU to begin with.

    A massive amount of support and affordable parts go with it. Check Reddit out, a ton of users are rocking the Ender 3/Pro and it can spit out really good prints for its price range. Probably the most popular printer on there. I've had mine for a year and a half now and I've had no issues what so ever with what the above poster is detailing not even a broken part and have been running the same nozzle with continuous clean prints. Sure auto leveling would be handy but it really doesn't take that long to level the bed.

    But yeah, get the PRO, it's fixed a couple of issues and you can probably still get it for this advertised price on aliexpress. There's a super big following for the Ender 3.

    • Yes some people are lucky with their Ender 3 but it's not all smooth sailing. I see a lot of complaints on the Ender 3 on their Facebook group. Some even selling their printers because they can't get the levelling right.

      I don't know about you but i've had to change my nozzle on my CR10S Pro three times this year because it had been burnt out, had two sensors fail on me and nozzle blockage. And I'd say I print more than the regular consumer as I'm a Mechanical Engineer so I do a few prototyping.

      I think Ender 3 Pro is much better than this deal too

      • Thanks for your input. I'm a complete noob looking for a 3d Printer for a while, nearly jumped on this deal if it wasn't for your insight. Bangood seem to be having a few 3d printer sales as of late including the 3d pro around the $400 mark. What do you think of these two?

          I'd probably go with the Ender tbh like Lifeline said, Creality Ender's are good printers but just keep in mind not to get too frustrated if something doesn't go so smooth. That geetech isn't an actual "Prusa" printer lol

        • Just an FYI. Remember that GST is applied once in cart and targeting NZ. so times that amount by 1.15 times, it'll come out at roughly $450.

          • @3dfx: thx I realise that, there's just nothing in NZ the comes close to that from what I can see (the pro itself is 400 shipped inc GST)

            • @cheapcheap: Totally agree, I just ordered one myself :)
