Purchase Advice Megathread: What To Buy, Who To Buy It From, And More, In October 2021
however, im confused by the lack of specific upgrade parts for it. Do all standard CR-10 components aside from replacement bed and frame parts work for my CR-10mini? Or should I expect to handle mild modification processes and/or retrofitting to just about anything I try? The info ive gathered through hours of googling seems to go both ways and while I dont mind a little extra work to make the best of whats available, I would just rather not waste money on completely incompatible replacement/upgrade components by mistake.

Missing parts, constant MAXTEMP error
Update 4/6/22: The cooling fan is now rattling so loud I can't let the printer print overnight, I've had it shut down for a couple days, sent two emails to sovol that have gone without response, I've only had this printer for a week and was just asking for a replacement cooling fan. Maybe it's just been bad timing for them, but this experience has kind of stopped being enjoyable, I just want the printer to have working parts.

Ease Of Use
You will be betting on the product you get! (Bad)
The sovol 1 has the thermal runaway problems and the broken nozzle problem. Both printers have nice upgrades you can get for a better ease of use but all the plugs on the motherboard are hotglued in so you risk hurting the motherboard when trying to install and that doesn't seem use friendly I've had to use the return service on both of them but the sovol 3 still has a wobbly nozzle issue and the sovol 1s nozzle still broke off in the hot end while replacing. I will not be buying from sovol again I wish you luck and hope you get on of there more cared for production models.
