    I really like the white PLA sample that came with the Ender 3, but I am unsure what kind of PLA it is. The sample PLA printed nice and it feels pretty hard and impact resistant vs the generic grey PLA, 1.75 0.02+/-, I picked up from Amazon. The Amazon PLA feels lacks the hardness and doesn't seem to be as durable...

    What is everyone opinion on PLA, PLA+, and or PLA Pro?

    Initial run on the 'original' hatchbox was because it was supposed to be what that sample was purported to be. Pretty sure it's not - hell half the hatchbox pla out there is probably fake.

    run the cheapest stuff you can find while you learn 99% you'll just run the usual stuff, so pick some colors (realize the color totally effects print quality) get in the habit of running a temp tower with new filament.

    Alright, spool3d got the Ender 5 Plus in stock. Grabbed one.

    Now I am reading it is loud and needs a Mobo upgrade. lol. Is it really that bad?
    So I never picked up the Ender 5 Plus. Decided I didn’t need another hobby. Wife then asked if we should get one for the kid. Ended up getting him a CR6-SE.

    Holy shit does it take long to print. This little model of a Pokémon Eevee (that was included on the included SD card) is taking nearly 5 hours to print.

    Is this thing just slow? I didn’t set anything other than leveling the bed and then hitting print!

    Yes they're all slowish. Yes you can choose options to make them less slow.

    No upgrades aren't needed out of the box. People telling you that's "needed" are probably those earning a living from parts sales.

    Richard Cleveland @ the first layer, has some pretty good introductory videos. I gotta bug him about that they didn't jump out at me on first look.

    Did you print it solid? Or did you mean it?

    Can't remember what the fill percentage was, but it definitely wasn't solid.

    What are y'all using for remote monitoring? I don't have a spare wyze crotch camera laying around...

    I put mine in the basement and my watch says I climbed 46 floors yesterday

    Got an Ender 3v2 for Christmas and have gone a little crazy over the last few months. Mine's in the basement and I'm using a Wyze cam to monitor; it was just easiest. I'll be getting some additional V3s when they're available to replace this one elsewhere in the house anyway.

    I designed my own mount for inside the Lack table leg right at the perfect bed level. (and I moved the screen from the right side to left side in between taking these two pics!)

    Obviously this setup is for personal use, not business like @pheoxs or @AndyL , so I had to do the cabinet in such a way as to not be an eyesore knowing that houseguests may be walking right past it.
