[Amazon.ca] Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D printer $346.99 no tax after applying $20 coupon, additional $15 off if apply for CC

Didn't see it posted I think it deserves its own thread.
I learned about the Ender 3 Pro 3d printer from the other cheaper 3d printer deal and decided to buy one myself.
Totally new to this business, special thanks to member wlee for posting the link and the others who commented on this printer in the other thread

$346.99 after applying $20 coupon on the website,
even cheaper if you apply for Amazon credit card, which gives a $15 coupon.
there should be a link during checkout process on how to apply for the card.
no tax on this.

Also saw the Ender 3x for cheaper but doesn't look like its the same seller so I skipped it.

I bought my 3X (Last december) from Comgrow and wouldn't have any hesitation recommending them. I suspect they were one of Creality's main NA resellers prior to Creality opening their own NA Amazon store.

That said.... the magnetic bed and improved PSU on the pro are both upgrades I would recommend so I suppose it depends on whether or not a person thinks they're worth $60.

Looks like Comgrow is running a similar sale. Unsure if printer is exactly the same, but it is slightly cheaper: https://www.amazon.ca/Comgrow-Creality- ... 07H21QPTT/

Good deal if you need one now, but I am going to hold-off until it drops under $300 (like it did last year, at around $280).

they usually go for about $400CAD

This is a great price. Awesome printer too. You can do a lot with it. It's fairly easy to set up and use. There's so many customization options too. If anyone has been thinking of starting 3D printing, this is a great entry price.

My wife, who bought me one about three weeks ago for my birthday while it was in a weird price high (closer to the regular $400) wishes you wouldn't have posted this lol!

But in other news - awesome printer. I'm completely green to 3d printing and I've been running the thing 8hrs a day cranking out awesome quality prints. As I mentioned in another thread - I found the sample filament that was included was junk, I had terrible stringing and blobbing with it. Grabbed a brand name spool and it's been flawless - so that immediately eliminated my discouraged feeling I was having when my sample prints were coming out "meh".

The upgrades are endless for this thing too, and if you have some patience for shipping you can grab various upgrade parts and mods from Aliexpress for half the price of Amazon in most cases. I don't have a "need" for any of them because it's great for my needs right out of the box, but I'm a hardware guy and will probably mod it to high heaven anyway.

As someone that is eager to get in to this hobby and close to selling my wife on it, can you give me an idea of some of these hardware upgrades that can be done? I like to tinker and if there are ways to make something better I likely will want to try! I would love to hear some of things I could do to upgrade the unit.

I was deciding between this and the mega s. Ended upgetting the mega s due to some reviews I saw online. I think the mega s has a heated bed but in terms of printable area is 1.5cm smaller on x and y direction, and also 5cm shorter.

$319, also including tax and shipping. Ships from Vancouver.

Something to consider.

Replacing the bed springs is almost a requirement, but beyond that the main upgrades (other than the ones you can print yourself) would be mainboard (doing one as we speak... $36 + however long it takes to get here through aliexpress), metal extruder top, and BLTouch (auto leveling).

Been looking at these lately, surprisingly to try to build my own ITX computer case as I've seen a couple online.
Haven't done enough research to be confident enough to buy, yet.

I was almost positive I'd never sell my wife on it after months of trying, and guess what showed up for my birthday! haha. She's already loving the benefit from some of the random useful trinkets I've been able to print for around the house, or for organization, etc.

Anyway, as for upgrades, here's everything I'm looking at (in no particular order):
- Glass print bed (apparently a bit better adhesion, even heating and easier to clean)
- Stronger springs for bed levelling (supposed to reduce how often re-levelling is needed)
- Looking at the BLTouch auto bed level sensor (will adjust the print head to compensate against bed level, so if the bed isn't perfect the head will compensate for even more even layers)
- Aluminum extruder
- Silent stepper driver mainboard replacement (has more expensive stepper drivers that lower the noise produced by the motors - mine is a few feet away from me and has been noticed while on some conference calls lately haha)

A lot of other upgrades I'll print, like:
- A tool caddy
- Guide for filament as it comes off the spool
- Wire guides
- Z-axis top support

If anybody is considering getting into 3D printing and wondering what to look forward to, here's an (extremely long, and still ongoing) chronicle of my own personal trip down the rabbit hole....

Basically a lot of the 3d printed upgrade people do aftermarket, more powerful / quiet board etc.
What's the advantage over the CR-6? For the $160 extra, you get a different extruder, auto-leveling ($70 for BLtouch), trinamic controller board, photoelectric filament sensor, different stepper motors, etc. Aren't those the "recommended" upgrades anyway?

Great Printer! I picked it up last December on a Lightening Deal for $275. I'd hold off until price drops below $300
