Unless you know how to make parts, or modify it to work. Good luck buying official parts from them, just go to their official store and search.
Look at some bad reviews for stuff sold from some third parties, somebody got a used product.
There’s a hotend for around $60, but their quality control is shit, so not worth that much. They have heat blocks that may or may not work, apparently missing screw holes where you need em. So I guess it just hangs off. It’s probably more secure with the screws. You can drill holes in it, but you might as well find somebody that can make the block in that case.
If I had a 3D printer that can print metal, I’d be good to go.
I emailed them asking if I can buy the hotend or heater block. If Jeff can’t get the nozzle out, then I’ll have to wait for them to email me. Also, maybe he can tell if it’s broken or not. The inside.
If they don’t respond to my email, I will contact them on Amazon. And if that fails, I’ll see if I can return without the box. Not providing support after sales, is a good reason to send it back. How the fuck are you supposed to get replacement parts? I don’t feel like spending $20+ for the entire hotend, and possibly getting junk.
I found one block, but somebody said the nozzle fell out while printing. They said the hole is too big or something. So buy a bigger nozzle? Well, the picture shows the silicone thing on the bed too.
And look on Reddit, they say what upgrades you can use, and some even have tried third party stuff on Amazon. Sounds like I need a new bed, and possibly firmware. It’ll be a while, got to fix it, then got to print one thing successfully. Will it work without silicone thing? From a third party, you can get a bunch of nozzles, and silicone things. But I want the nozzles that are actually better, according to somebody on Reddit.
If you have weak and shaky hands, I also don’t recommend it. I hurt my fingers putting new shoe laces on my shoes, the elastic ones, cheap from Walmart, but they had to ship them. You will buy lots of shoe laces, if you use regular ones, unless you can get knots out, I use scissors. I saved the old laces though, in case I need them. But they are so cheap, I think I’ll buy four pairs of em. I bought one extra one to give my mom, she said she wanted some. Put em on boots too, or not they are winter boots. Not sure they will be tight enough.
Was looking at Reddit on my phone, I found it somehow on DuckDuckGo, didn’t even know it was on Reddit.
So maybe it isn’t the worst one to buy. Need to look at it on computer though. I use my Linux PC mostly, so no getting to stuff in Safari, and Safari sucks on the Mac anyways. The brand/seller they’ve had luck with is ENOMAKER. Seeing if they have a block. Doesn’t look like it, at least for my printer.
And the thing I need to reconnect is the belt, for the nozzle thingy. They have a hotend for almost $30, for my printer. Now to look at reviews. It isn’t easy, if you have to open the bottom of printer. How the fuck are you supposed to do that? Turn it upside down? Good luck not breaking anything. And I ain’t removing the bed.
Why can’t I use existing/working cables? Or did I kill the cables? I’ll replace the tube though, just for fun. Somebody said it appears to be the same, other review says different tube. If that’s the case, I can use existing cables. If it doesn’t work, then replace cables. I’ll find out tomorrow if I need to buy it yet. I need silicone things though.
Thank you people on Reddit, for trying a non official seller on Amazon.
I’d rather wait to buy all the stuff at once though, that might be a while, depends what the republicans do. Good idea, go panhandle, say I need money for 3D printing dildos. Anti stringing might be nice, for the nozzles. And why shouldn’t I use a metal tool on the outside of that nozzle? It comes with six, if I remove it, I’m replacing it most likely.
And can you buy a small metal block and thread it and use it as a heater block? And which metal is best? If that works, I should sell em, for other people that break their nozzle off in it. Not sure he wants to make that many though. I can’t do it, my hands/fingers suck.
They don’t sell silicone socks for my printer, bummer. I have to try a different seller. How can silicone socks be bad? If they don’t fit, or melt.
Oh and good luck compiling the latest 6.2 kernel from Ubuntu using Ubuntu 22.04 or is it 20.04? I tried using Distrobox, then Podman directly, well didn’t remake it. Just so env vars wouldn’t be the same as openSUSE. The instructions Ubuntu provide don’t work, and one script doesn’t exist. I just want to see if it boots, and if WiFi works. Don’t care about HDMI, does it even have that? Ok, I’ll buy the socks from the seller I bought my filament from, the filament appears to be fine, don’t need it yet, haven’t used all the stuff printer came with yet.
Good idea, compile kernel using Lima again. Why not? Yeah it takes forever, but who cares, and the CPU might get hot, but who cares. Nukes will fall from the sky in the next world war. So computer might get melted. But not me, I can’t be melted. According to who? Uranus. I really want to know what happens if you scratch that nozzle with metal. It’s Teflon.
Not ordering anything until tomorrow. Might not have to replace hotend yet. Then I can just get silicone socks, and nozzles. The bed is waiting, it’s around $20. And that’s the cheaper one somebody said they use.
Hmm, you don’t have to use Ubuntu kernel source, if you use Lima. The headers I made are vanilla. Does Ubuntu have any patches I need? I’m going to say no. Hmm, that isn’t the same Ubuntu version. You need to use nerdctl, but it doesn’t work. Well, I might have found the command, but I guess you have to run some other command every time first, off to the Lima GitHub.
And I still need to look at the Ender 3 V2 Neo on Reddit.

That’s what I’ll buy if he can’t fix it. Sorry, I can’t link to Amazon, they told me not to.

Can I post the ASINs? Sure why not.
A 3D printer that can’t print the way it comes, nice. And if you break it, you can’t buy parts from the manufacture.
I think DIY printers are the best, you can get replacement parts.
lima sudo systemctl start containerd
lima sudo nerdctl run --privileged --rm tonistiigi/binfmt:[email protected]:66e11bea77a5ea9d6f0fe79b57cd2b189b5d15b93a2bdb925be22949232e4e55 --install all
Put that in a sh file in your home folder, so you don’t forget what to run. Typing history doesn’t find it. Probably was replaced with new history.
Maybe put nerdctl.lima run -it -v /tmp/lima:/lima –platform=arm64 arm64v8/ubuntu:22.04 /bin/bash in it too. Hmm, how many Ubuntus do I have? Only five.
nerdctl.lima start xxx
nerdctl.lima exec -it xxx /bin/bash
That’ll do it, deleted all the extra ones. The name of my container probably won’t do you any good, I think after ubuntu-, it’s random.
Apparently it can print some kinds of TPU without upgrading it, so I never need to upgrade it. Nothing like printing flexible dildos. If I had a wife, I’d give her one for every Christmas. I’d ask her “What do you think I got you for Christmas?”, “A dildo?”, “How’d you know?”.
Ender 3 V2 Neo Upgrade Guide, surprised DuckDuckGo found that, it finds almost nothing. I only searched for “reddit ender 3 v2 neo” and that’s the first link.
Not giving a link to the firmware, it looks complicated. Better off using Klipper. Do you need to compile Klipper? Not even sure Visual code whatever is for Linux, maybe. Doesn’t say the Neo works either. On the GitHub.
They have a requirement page, but I forgot the board version, the firmware file might have had it.
Does the auto leveling work though? Cause adjusting Z offset, can damage the nozzle, and possibly hotend. Somebody said it’s easier with the above bed. The main reason to get it.
Not having to buy truck loads of glue sticks, would be a nice feature too.
They mention the Neo on a different page for that “professional” firmware.
Hmm, I can make my bed bigger? So I can get a metal 3D printer, print new frame, and use that firmware to print bigger? Nice. I need it taller, as tall as a house, so I can print a house. Can resign 3D printers do metal? Not for me, you need gloves and crap, it’s toxic. A plastic house.
Why not leave the filament on the floor of the tent? Cause it fell off, and then I left it there, now it’s in the pocket on the side of tent on the outside, since I removed it. I’ll put it back in hole, after it works again, so depends how much money I have. And how the fuck do you attach belt?
Good advice, too bad I didn’t read it before driving nozzle into bed, now I need a new bed. And a new nozzle, possibly hotend as well. It came with another nozzle.
Hmm, should just order the hotend, he’s going out of town, and I want one of those new nozzles on it, but might break something off in it again if we fix it.
