Ender 3 v2 or ender 3 max?

I’m only finding comparisons of the pro vs the v2 but can’t find anything comparing the v2 to the max?

This will be my first 3D printer, and probably my only 3D printer so I would like to get the most out of it. Does the Max work as well as the v2 but with a larger print size or is it going to be lacking features or print quality?

I want to make things around the shop, woodworking stuff(center finders, dust collection reducers, jigs etc), leatherworking stuff(stamps, stands etc) and random things around the house and for the kids.

I would get the ender 3 v2. The ender 3 max is kinda a gimmick and they sell much better printers around that size range that perform better.

oooo i was looking at an ender 3 max, what do you suggest instead? thanks

CR10S.

If you're up for some modding, you can get ender extender kits to increase the bed size to 400mm2 when, or if you have the need for it. Imo, the v2 is a better printer

Brian Price Reply Jon Hine

I’m totally fine with doing that if I need the larger size in the future. I was planning on upgrading the size of my neje laser engraver but after adding up materials/parts it’s only $100 more to get the newer large model engraver so I would rather have 2 for the extra hundred. Not sure if this is sort of the same but if the v2 is better quality than it’s what I want

f you just care about bed size, the extender kit is only $160 which will give you an extra 100mm over the ender 3 max each side, but that doesn't include a new heated bed, which are sold separately on the same store, are mains powered and will heat up quicker for $90. If you need the extra height aswell, it's $240, which include the bigger bed size aswell

thank you for all the info

Meh, get a V2 and extender kit and youd have a souped up max. Or just drop the extra coin and go for a 5 plus or cr10 pro I'd you're really after the print volume.

Brian Price Reply Christopher M Stirling

not having any experience makes me unsure what I want for print volume. I imagine I will be fine with the v2 just wasn’t sure

Aaron Larson Reply Brian Price 

I would suggest you get the v2. The extra print area of the max isn't going to be as useful as it appears for funcrional prints.
