    does this have thermal runaway configured out of the box

  •  

    N32 or H32 mainboard?

    •  

      Probably N32 - I got one a few weeks ago and it was N32. Flashed Alex's firmware no problems

  •  

    I had the model before and just sent it back, the feeder broke after 3 weeks. Tech support lead me around in circles but tried to help. I was disappointed but Amazon gave full refund, now I have another brand coming, hope that's good. End of story.

      Common problem, but you just print a replacement lever as soon as you get the printer!

      •  

        No the filament chewed up every time between the gear and the roller and ghost printed constantly. If it was common then the tech support would have known instantly and either told me or didn't so both just as bad

        •  

          Ah yeah that does sound like a different extruder problem. Unfortunate experience as I have an Aquila and it's been great.

        •  

          Could that not just be a filament issue? Sometimes the filament measures 1.77mm + and it just jams the whole thing up.

          •  

            @ATangk: Nope, using high quality filament and same issues occurred in different spools, all only a week or two old

            •  

              @UberIsCool: High quality filament doesn't exclude it from having issues. Did you measure them?

              •  

                @ATangk: It’s the same rolls for weeks, do they thicken half way along the spool?

                •  

                  @UberIsCool: Yes they can. Cheap stuff usually by a large enough variance to block up your hotend

                  •  

                    @Dezeption: It’s not cheap, it’s Flashforge and have used 4 rolls for over three weeks no issues

                •  

                  @UberIsCool: Yes. If my printer was ever jammed, I always pull out the digital calipers. If its been printing well for a while, 9 times out of 10, its the filament. And sometimes, its only for like 50cm of the filament that is a bit wonky.

                  •  

                    @ATangk: I just measured the two in question and they are 1.72

    The Ender 3 v2 itself isn't much more expensive, ~AU320

  •  

    On a positive note I have 100 hours of printing on mine with no issues. I have 2 of the v1 and one of these. All Been good. The extruder lever has broken on 1 but a metal replacement is 10 or 15 bucks

    •  

      What are you printing with 3 printers?

      •  

        Cosplay stuff, armour and suits etc . I actually have 5 printers as i do commissioned prints, I just use these for the smaller stuff.

        •  

          Awesome. I just got my first printer, Ender 5 plus but am wondering if i should have just got multiple ender 3's/Aquila x2's so i can have multiple prints going at the same time

            @Villainous: If you end up liking it they will multiply

    Not much of an upgrade on the original Aquila. $230 is the price I'd pay for this.

  •  

    This guy does really good review of it:

    I believe its the same machine

    I would stay away from clones.
    Ender3 V2 isn't much more, better quality but you will still have little surprises here and there that require a 3D upgrade.

    These cheap printers are recommended for those who are starting. The best thing for you to really learn and cheap maintenance. I had my Ender3 V2 for 6 months and it was a great school for me with amazing models quality.

    I was tired of the endless tweaking tho so I got a Prusa, it did cost a kidney and I've spent a few weeks already trying to calibrate it.
    PLA is printing like a charm now. Start it, walk away, come back and it is done.

      Ahhh I have both and I'd say that the Aquila is the better printer between this and the E3v2. The only let down rn with the Aquila is the mainboard you might get due to the global silicone shortage happening. Build quality wise the Aquila is better
