Going Deeper: Extruder Insights:

Known fondly as the “Sprite” extruder, this little marvel, being lightweight, sets it apart. It promises reduced vibrations, greater accuracy, and works beautifully with a range of filaments, from PLA to TPU. The feeding and extrusion? Silky smooth, thanks to its two chrome steel gears at a 1:3:5 gear ratio and an impressive pushing force.

CR-Touch Automatic Bed Leveling Magic:

For anyone who’s manually leveled a bed, you’ll adore the CR-Touch. 16-point automatic leveling? Yes, please! It tweaks the G-Code for any bed discrepancies, taking manual hassles out of the equation.

Dual Z-Axis Delight:

Missing from previous Ender series, the dual Z-axis on the Ender 3 S1 is a joy to behold. The dual screw and motor design enhance smoothness, bidding adieu to uneven layer lines.

32-Bit Silent Mainboard Serenity:

Gone are the days when 3D printing equaled noisy chaos. Thanks to the 32-bit silent mainboard, the Ender 3 S1 is a whisper in the wind. Yes, you might still hear the fans, but the overall peace it offers is commendable.

The Assembly: A Breeze!

If the thought of assembling a 3D printer sends shivers down your spine, fear not! The Ender 3 S1 is 96% set straight out of the box. Six easy steps and you’re ready to roll. And for the curious souls, yes, there’s a user-friendly manual to guide you.

From the magnetic spring steel sheet that makes removing prints a dream, to the user-centric 4.3-inch LCD screen, and the invaluable filament runout sensor, the Ender 3 S1 is packed with features that make 3D printing not just easier, but an absolute joy.

Specifications of the Ender 3 S1:

The sheer specs of this printer are impressive, from its sizeable build to its versatility in filament compatibility and the nimbleness of its extruder. And for those spec junkies, the numbers and details are well-laid out and give you a clear picture of what this beast can accomplish.

Ender 3 S1 vs. Ender 3 V2:

Now, how does this new entrant compare with its sibling, the Ender 3 V2? Price-wise, there’s a notable gap. But when it comes to features, the S1 is in a league of its own, boasting of direct drive extruders, dual Z-axis, automated leveling, and so much more.
