cmarshall10450728309dI was given an Anet A8 for free and bought an Creality Ender 3. I'm really enjoying the tinkering and upgrading that I can do. It's also great quality for the price.
I added auto bed levelling last weekend and even though it was hard to dial in, it's made a big difference.
I'm going for the motor drivers next, then mks gen l board, then octoprint/klipper.
@cmarshall10450 Ender 3 is amazing but still TEVO wins this one. Half a year ago the old tarantula wasnt up to the task to beat Ender 3 but this one beats it in print quality and in most stuff. This shit can move at 300mm/s FFS. My eyes have trouble registering when it moves. Sure i cant print at 300mm/s only moves are that fast and people already tried 400mm/s and it worked OK but it got the motors hotter.
But Ender 3 is still an amazing printer. I woudlnt buy this one if i had Ender 3 already.
And Anet is good for maybe tinkering. But its loud and there is not that many upgrades you can print.
Old tarantula was great as machine to tinker with. I mean on my old tarantula there is nothing stock except the frame itself LUL.
I think this one will end up with few upgrades too. Not so many for sure but lot of them.
cmarshall10450728309d@Haxk20 yeah. That's pretty fast. I haven't tested the move speed of the Ender 3 but I'm printing at 100mm/s consistently. I know I'll be able to print even faster with a 32bit board and klipper controlling it from a raspberry pi.
I bought motor dampers for it before realising that the gears are now press fit, so they're useless now.
I know what you mean about the Anet. It was far too much tinkering for me though. I didn't build it/wire it and I was constantly having to fix it. I got so bored of either a power wire or thermistor wire coming out.
There are more upgrades for a prusa clone than I expected.
