About this deal

The XY axis adopts the belt tension adjustment device with a hand-tightening nut to conveniently and easily adjust the belt tightness. The Neptune 3 Pro is a great 3D printer for people who want a polished machine that’s easy to use right from the box.

Standard versions of Cura or Prusa Slicer don’t have profiles for any of Elegoo’s printers, but you can use the profile for an Ender 3 Pro and adjust the build volume accordingly. It's sealed, and packaged in the original factory condition with ALL original factory parts/accessories in inspected new or like new condition. The main drawback of this feature is that it only work when at least 10mm of the print has already been completed - I assume this helps ensure the print it continues with is unlikely to have warped whilst cooling. In comparison one of the pieces of the Original Neptune 3 printer was enclosed over two levels of foam making for a trickier than expected extraction of that part.

Well, that didn't work out - when the power came back just seconds later the printer restarted apparently clueless to the fact that just moments ago it was part way through a print. I used Elegoo Mars 3 Pro for my 3D printing needs and I was really impressed with the quality of their products. The 250 W heating bed quickly heats up to 100 °C and thus allows the printing of various high-temperature plastics. There is a fan in the base designed to cool the components within - this fan however runs continuously, even when the printer sits idle with no heating of the nozzle or bed. It can be overcome simply by switching the printer off when not printing - but sometimes between prints it can be a little tiring.

I have had plenty of packages from Elegoo over the years and I'm yet to experience any damage to the products inside. With my current machine I often set an alarm to wake me up through the night so that I can remove a finished print and start the next. The power recovery feature will detect this and offer to re-heat the bed and nozzle before resuming where it was before the power failed. Built on the feature set established by the Elegoo Neptune 3 Pro, the 'Plus' version brings a larger build volume to the table with many of the features you could want in a desktop 3D FDM printer.

The most interesting update is riding on the gantry: a dual gear direct drive that does an excellent job of grabbing squirrelly material like TPU. This makes detaching a print super easy and quick, just wait for it to cool then bend the plate slightly - your print will pop right off. It will help to reduce the extrusion clamp force, increase the printing temperature and reduce the printing speed. Elegoo’s simple to use Neptune 3 Pro arrives 90% pre-assembled and goes from box to first print in 30 minutes. Though the printer has come from the factory with its belts pre-tensioned there are easily accessible knobs that allow you to adjust the tension if needed.
