I just ordered from the fake .shop site. I feel really bad now. I really thought I was ordering from the real deal. I wish I had seen this post.
When I searched google it came up first on key words "ender 3 pro".
What are the product differences ? Is it the same printer ? Did I just buy a bad knockoff ?
I will let everyone know how it played out.
If you have already recieved it you should be fine. Its the fact that they spout being an authorized/ partnered seller and are actually not. At one point their Customer service was shite, and and left much to be desired. It sells real stuff, it's just the facade of being a true reseller.
Since its inception, the guide has had multiple views, additions to collections and downloads. In that time I have updated the guide several times adding additional guides, user fixes (including one of my own), Cura profiles settings, etc.
Change log added to note changes.
Check out the guide again and see if there is anything NEW for you to check out. Here is the link to the guide https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3574369
I recommend going to the thingi, as the post is no longer updated. I have also posted the link to the thingi in the original post
