SPONSORED NEWS – Smart, speedy, and versatile, the Ender-3 V3 KE is your new gateway to 3D printing. Creality, a pioneer in the 3D printing industry, proudly announces the latest addition to its renowned Ender-3 series, the Ender-3 V3 KE. Building upon the legacy of the Ender-3 series, this new release comes with extensive upgrades and a touch of intelligence, making it a great choice for both beginners and hobbyists.

The classic series has evolved

The Ender-3 series by Creality has been a classic in the 3D printing market, boasting the largest user base of any 3D printer series. Creality, always attentive to user feedback, has taken this iconic series to the next level by infusing it with smart features that simplify the 3D printing experience equally for newcomers and enthusiasts.

Smarter than ever

The Ender-3 V3 KE is a testament to how DIY 3D printers can become smarter than ever before. At its core is the introduction of Creality OS, a smart operating system that takes 3D printing to the next level. With one-touch intelligent self-checks and automatic bed leveling, it eliminates the hassles of traditional printing.

Moreover, the printer seamlessly integrates with Creality Print and the Creality Cloud app, enabling remote printing and monitoring, adding a new dimension of convenience. The printer’s brand-new UI (user interface) enhances usability with global navigation buttons, real-time model previews, and dynamic displays that provide an intuitive and vivid user experience. Smart algorithms are introduced for input shaping and flow optimization to eliminate ripples and corner bulges, delivering exceptional model detailing.

Fast and precise

The Ender-3 V3 KE is designed to shift your 3D printing experience into a higher gear. It boasts a top printing speed of 500mm/s and acceleration of 5000mm/s², significantly improving efficiency – a benchy can be printed in just 15 minutes and 8 seconds.

Meanwhile, the X-axis employs precision ball linear guides, and the Y-axis has dual linear shafts to ensure each move is accurate, steady, and frictionless, with high-strength bearing steel supporting wear resistance and longevity. An upgraded hot end featuring a 60W ceramic heating element and a copper-titanium alloy nozzle ensures smooth flow and high material compatibility. With dual cooling fans on each side of the print head, even cooling and rapid model formation is ensured, resulting in significantly improved print quality.

Light but versatile

The Ender-3 V3 KE offers a perfect balance of compactness and versatility. While occupying less space and weighing less, it boasts rich functions, giving full rein to creative desires. While printing faster and better with Creality Hyper PLA which offers smooth feeding and fast cooling, the printer is compatible with a wide range of filaments, including PLA, PETG, ABS, TPU (95A), and ASA, allowing you to print a variety of daily items, parts, or products. With three convenient ways of printing – via USB drive, data-secure LAN printing with WiFi, and cloud printing with WiFi, getting started with the Ender-3 V3 KE is a breeze.

Optional accessories for enhanced functionality

  2. It’s ok… This is very much an advert of a post, no actual testing or research went into it other than looking at the KE website.

    The 15 minute benchy is a custom G-Code file, and cannot be recreated in the software that Creality provides. Whist it does finish the 15 minute benchy, the quality is questionable – I have some very bad looking overhangs and drooping material

    Speaking of software, the KE is marketed as being Klipper based. Whilst this is true to an extent, the version of Klipper that Creality has come up with is nothing short of crap. I cannot even manually adjust Z-Offest to allow parts to properly adhere to the buildplate, and definitely not access the command line console to be able to perform tasks such as calibrating the hot end PID.

    Basically, if you want a printer that *can* print fast OOTB, and might have decent results maybe, this one is great. Otherwise If I had a second opportunity to buy a first printer I would go for a BambuLabs

    1. You can adjust the z-offset. You have to hit the home button for the z first, then you can change it. Also my benchy looked great. It wasn’t super smooth, but it was pretty damn good.
