Creality CR-10
Takes time to set up correctly. Do NOT rush it
I'm a aircraft mechanic by trade. With that said the directions/instructions that come with this is trash. You need to have some mechanical skills to make sure you put this together correctly. Multiple wheels, belts, screws needed to be tightened down. You tube came in clutch for a checklist of chec...

3Dnatives Lab: Testing the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer - 3Dnatives
With the Ultimaker S5, the manufacturer wanted to offer a FDM 3D printer as complete as possible: large volume, heating tray, semi-closed enclosure, double extrusion, WiFi, automatic calibration, colour touch screen, end of filaments detection etc. Quality of impressions is well to go with a very satisfactory overall experience.

Ultimaker S5
What’s the best printer for cosplaying Star Wars.
I use an Ender 3, a CR10 and a Ultimaker S5. If you have them dialed in, any of those can produce excellent buckets. That said, I’ve found the S5 the most reliable and requiring the least amount of maintenance.

Ease Of Use

We Tested The Creality CR-10 Smart (Review) - 3DSourced
ater, the CR-10 Smart still maintains this stellar print volume, but with a host of improvements — Creality call the CR-10 Smart their most technologically advanced 3D printer. You can also print remotely using the Creality Cloud app. This is far easier than repeatedly plugging an SD card into your laptop or PC, loading the sliced STL file from Cura or Creality’s 3D slicer, and then plugging the SD card back into your 3D printer

The one I received had too many problems due to poor quality control at the Creality factory. I had to return it due to too many problems. Its not for beginners. You need mechanica...

Ultimaker S5 Review
That said, in the realm of professional-grade filament-based printers, the Ultimaker S5 is the best we have encountered, thanks to its large build volume, dual extruders, good print quality, easy setup, and smooth operation.
