Anycubic I3 Mega Vs Creality Ender 3 Vs Anycubic I3 Mega Vs Creality Ender 3 Pro

Hi, All!I”m thinking about dipping my toes in the 3D printing universe, and I can get the Ender 3 V2 or the Anycubic Mega S for about the same price. On the surface, the Mega S has a *slightly* smaller bed, and isn”t really upgradable, but the Anycubic seems to have a slightly better print quality, comes with spare parts, and is way easier to get going with–or at least that”s what the reviews I”ve seen tell me.Anyone have any thoughts on which way I should go? Thanks!

In that price range it”s pretty hard to argue against the large community and resources that comes with the ender 3 line. That said… current prices are silly high when compared to historical market values… I”d wait until a decent sale comes up and you”d probably save close to $100.Looks to me like the only thing the anycubic comes with that isn”t part of the base ender 3 V2 is the filament sensor, and I”d argue that”s a nice-to-have, but honestly isn”t something that comes into play all that often. Some form of ABL is a much more important upgrade.

Thanks, sswilson; I”m kinda kicking myself now for not picking something up on boxing day. I seem to recall there were some pretty decent sales on.My interest in the anycubic isn”t so much that it”s got snazzy features. I”m more worried about the amount of time it takes to get the Ender 3 up and running. There seem to be a lot of nightmare stories about leveling and having the parts sit straight, and all that. Is ABL some sort of active levelling? Is that something the Ender V2 has? Or are they both missing that?

As far as setup goes….There are quite a few videos out there for the ender 3 line that cover best practices during assembly. I actually went back and redid my assembly a couple of weeks after getting it just to make sure I had it right. I wasn”t experiencing any issues but decided to do it just to be sure.danmitch1 is one of the examples of somebody who did not have a good experience with his first ender3. So much so that he returned it and got a different model. That said, his experience wasn”t typical, most folks are up and printing in no time, and learn how to get the best possible prints over time. (The original Ender 3 was great for this as I spent the first month or so printing off upgrades which gave me examples to learn by).Personally, based on my experience with the ender 3, I”d recommend grabbing either a V2 + bltouch, or a Pro + bltouch + skr mini E3 replacement motherboard.
