3D printed templates
This will go fine on a ender 3 v2, which is a great printer for its price. Source: I own a professional 3D printing/Lasercutting/Leatherworking business (weird combo, i know), With currently 10 printers total.
Elegoo Neptune 2S
Absolute trash, I thought Elegoo was better than this.
Mine came with a misaligned frame, a broken wheel, and the bed carriage was bent in TWO PLACES!

Elegoo's customer service is very i...

Now I didn't know exactly what I was getting myself into even after reading a...

Reliability

Creality Ender 3 V2
Great support
This is my first 3d printer... I bought it based on reviews, features, and reasonable price for a beginner/learning printer. I love the heated bed.

Elegoo Neptune 2S
Easy setup and great build quality
This is my second Elegoo printer, and my first FDM printer. So far it's been great with only one tiny issue with the hardware. That being that one leg is not level and I had to shim it. That's it. I had issues working with the provided slicing software for Mac, which doesn't currently function. It w...
