SainSmart x Creality Ender-3 3D Printer



Yeah that’s why we’re not on the metric system.

It’ll be a cold day when I understand metric conversion. Like -40°C.


Can I make a plastic gun with this unit?




The printer arrived a day early, and I had it together in about 1.5 hours.

The instructions in the booklet were good, I was just taking my time and had to undo one or two things when I messed up the front/back of a part. I should have watched the video on the micro sd card first. Leveled the bed and everything looked good.

I found FFF settings for Simplify3D on this youtube page (

I setup a Raspberry Pi with Octopi and configured that.

And then I had to wait, because I forgot my spool of PETG at work and didn’t want to bother with the little bit that came in the box. First print came out pretty good. I adjusted the retraction setting back to what was in the FFF originally and the string test print did better but isn’t quite there.


I haven’t had time to set mine up yet but I hope to see what folks create with theirs in this thread!!!



It doesn’t really fly at all, just kinda flips and flops, but it printed fairly well.


Pretty plane!
