William Hutchings 4 I really like the large bed of the Ender-5 plus.I can print full helmets in one print. I can print things like phaser rifle stocks in one piece instead of splitting it. I'm mostly happy with the printer quality but the top layer is usually not as flat and solid as I hoped. as this is my first printer don't take stock in my thoughts on print quality I don't know what I am talking about.Initial setup was fairly easy two cables were not shown where they plug in on the manual diagram but the Creality ender 5 plus YouTube video that is super easy to follow along has the two cables. Use the YouTube video.I had a little trouble getting started. When printing there is an adjustment option to in print change bed and tip temperature. In this menu is also z offset. My printer came so offset that the printer was trying to print 3 inches below the glass. Once I figured that out it's was easy printing.Most of my problems have been self generated. Inserting tubing badly stripping screws etc. But some of my problems are with parts that seem designed to fail. Please watch YouTube videos before doing repairs self created casually are no fun and the 10$ part and waiting 3 days for Amazon sucks when it's 100% self inflicted.Pro tip if you can take a larger part off and install smaller ones do it it saves potentially damaging the larger part.The printer is a little loud its more the frequency of sound that is annoying. I know there are upgrades to improve the sound I just haven't upgraded fans or the motherboard yet. Behind a closed door the sound is largely unnoticeable so a none issue.The thing that I dislike most about this printer is some of the parts are designed to fail but have upgrade parts available. It's like Creality designed a good part and a reason for you to purchase it when they put a going to fail part on the printer.The extruder on my printer just broke because it's a cheap plastic part in a high wear area. I ordered a replacement upgraded part and discovered the extruder motor had the part that grips the filament permanently attached. Creality made a high fail part and wants you to replace the motor as well. Once all the high fail parts on my printer fail I'm sure it will be an amazing printing experience. But for right now I'm just waiting to figure out another part is high failure and have to wait days to print again.But Ender-5 share most of its parts with the Ender-3. Ender parts are crazy easy to find. Since they have been around a while the high fail parts all have reliable upgrade parts. Parts seem well stocked and usually ship fairly quickly. Making the this part failed problems largely just a nuances.If I knew what I knew now I would probably still purchase this printer just adding a few part upgrade kits to my purchase to save time later.
