Ender 3 V3 KE Key Features
X-axis Linear Rail, Ultra-smooth Motion
The X-axis linear rail of the Ender 3 V3 KE 3D printer is an outstanding feature, featuring a carriage slide with precision ball bearings, ensuring precise, stable, and virtually frictionless motion (0.04 friction coefficient*). Constructed from robust steel, it remains as good as new even after extended use. This feature not only provides exceptional printing accuracy but also ensures stability and ultra-smooth motion throughout the printing process. Whether you're working on fine-detail prints or handling large-scale printing tasks, it effortlessly excels.
Smarter Firmware and Controller
The Ender 3 V3 KE boasts significantly more advanced firmware than the Ender 3 V3 SE, with Creality referring to it as "Creality OS" . This firmware, built upon the open-source Klipper project, enables key features that enhance the overall user experience and print quality of the V3 KE.
One notable improvement is the implementation of smart algorithms, resulting in superior print quality. It effectively dampens the printer's vibrations, reducing the occurrence of ringing or ghosting on printed objects. Additionally, the motion advance feature optimizes filament flow, minimizing issues such as blobs and oozing during the printing process.
When it comes to the user interface, the KE stands out with its 4.3" touchscreen controller, which we find more preferable than the Ender 3 V3 SE's smaller 3.2" screen and knob controller. While both printers offer clean and informative interfaces, the KE takes the lead in displaying a greater amount of information more clearly, thanks to its advanced firmware.
Faster Printing Speed
The Ender 3 V3 KE boasts an impressive maximum print speed when compared to the Ender 3 V3 SE. The KE offers a maximum printing speed of 500 mm/s and a typical speed of 300 mm/s, while the SE advertises a maximum print speed of 250 mm/s and a typical speed of 180 mm/s. It's important to note that while maximum print speeds can be ambitious and might lead to more printing imperfections, typical print speeds are generally more reliable. We conducted tests at the SE's typical 180 mm/s print speed and achieved prints of exceptional quality. So, while regularly hitting 500 mm/s with the KE may not be common, it undeniably outpaces the SE in terms of speed.
The KE achieves its higher speeds through a combination of firmware and hardware enhancements. As discussed in the firmware section above, the Ender 3 V3 KE utilizes a more advanced Klipper-based firmware, featuring functions that mitigate print defects when operating at high speeds. Moreover, the KE employs a linear rail for the X-axis, which minimizes vibrations and enables smoother carriage movement along the axis at high speeds. In contrast, the SE utilizes a conventional rubber wheel system for the X-axis.
In summary, if you require higher printing speeds and faster printing acceleration, the Ender-3 V3 KE may be the better choice. However, the specific choice should also consider other factors such as the type of printing materials, printing quality requirements, and budget. Different applications may require different printer performance characteristics.
Superior Hotend Support More Filaments
The hotend in the Ender-3 V3 SE offers a solid performance with a nozzle temperature limit of up to 260°C, along with a heatbed temperature limit of 100°C. This allows it to effectively print a variety of standard filaments including PLA, ABS, PETG, and TPU. However, it may not be suitable for high-temperature materials like nylon due to its lower temperature capability.
In contrast, the Ender-3 V3 KE features a substantially upgraded hotend, designed to meet more challenging printing requirements. It boasts a powerful 60W ceramic heater, a considerable increase from the 40W heater in the SE, which aids in efficient filament melting, especially for high-speed printing. The KE's hotend incorporates a bimetallic heatbreak, a technology known for reducing the risk of hotend jams, even though these printers are generally less prone to such issues because of their Sprite direct-drive extruders.
What truly sets the KE apart is its ability to reach higher nozzle temperatures, up to 300°C, opening the door to high-temperature filaments like nylon. Additionally, the KE's "volcano" style hotend design provides a larger heat zone, ensuring quicker filament heating, a key factor for high-speed printing.
For most users, the standard filament compatibility on either machine, such as PLA, should suffice. However, the Ender-3 V3 KE provides the added advantage of handling high-temperature filaments, offering a wider range of possibilities for 3D printing enthusiasts looking to explore various materials and applications.
