What are the upgrades of Ender-3 V2 Neo?

CR-Touch Auto-level Sensor

A touch auto-leveling sensor makes life so much easier when we want to print something. It can quickly adjust the nozzle printing height on the hotbed. CR-Touch gets the 16-points auto-leveling program, which can collect more samples than the 9-points of the BLTouch which makes the bed leveling more precise.

Removable Spring Steel PEI Bed

The innovative printing platform is a combination of a PC coating, a spring steel sheet, and a magnetic sticker, which sticks to the surface immediately when released. The PC coating brings good adhesion and printed models can easily be removed by bending the print sheet. And we don’t have to use the spatula like on the glass and because it can run and cut ourselves.

Stronger Yellow Springs

They hold the position of the bed of Ender-3 V2 Neo much longer and with this we don’t have to do the manual leveling often and it has the auto leveling sensor but even then it is important you will see later to do the manual bed leveling first to make the surface parallel with the moving pad of the nozzle as much as possible in that case less has to be compensated by that information collected by the auto leveling sensor and it’s easy to assemble.

Silent Motherboard

The mainboard is 4.2.2 version but it is a silent mainboard which is different from the Ender 3 mainboard, this Ender-3 V2 Neo is equipped with a self-developed silent motherboard, which has stronger anti-interference, faster and more stable motion performance, silent printing, and low decibel operation, create a quiet environment. The extruder is upgraded to a full-metal extruder, which has greater extrusion force and is more durable, reducing the risk of nozzle blockage.

Brand New 4.3 Inch UI User Interface

The upgraded UI adds a model preview function, making it easier to observe the printing shape and progress for customers. It is convenient for you to know about the model status. Also, it supports nine languages for different customers’ demands.
