Creality Ender 3 update:
1) Assembled the printer in less than 2 hours.
2) Packaging was magnificent.
3) Despite the wonderful packaging, the housing for the Z limit switch wiring broke in shipment. I just put the loose socket on its pin. Works great but I want another housing. Trying to identify the part number without luck.
3) Print quality for a $200 printer is outstanding.
4) Wheels instead of bearings are very quiet. Amazing.
