Welcome to 3D Printer Week at Ur Gay Guide, and we’re starting off with a big one… The Longer LK5 Pro!
I recently ordered the Longer LK5 Pro and I was very surprised after assembling the printer. I knew the printer was big, but DANG! It’s huge!!!
Coming in at 11.8” x 11.8” x 15.7,” this build volume is insane!!! I’m used to the Ender 3 V2 build volume which means I was able to have a lot of fun with this new found space!
Right out of the box this printer was just about ready to go with minimal assembly required. The building process was fairly simple, just adding a few screws, and plugging in the extruder and various wires.
This printer is heavy and huge! Once it goes somewhere, it’s not leaving anytime soon. It was a bit of a struggle getting it to fit in my printer farm but we eventually made it and it found its forever home.
One feature that stood out to me was the touch screen. This small detail added so much ease to the process of preheating, loading, and unloading filament. As well as setting prints to start.
I also have to add, I love the design! The two diagonal support poles that the printer has adds a little something extra to this printer for me. While it is wayyyy too big to have out on my desk for prototyping, it has been the perfect addition to the farm!
The LK5 Pro is a great choice for both beginners and experienced makers because of its affordability, ease of use, and amazing print quality.
Here are some of the features we love from the Longer LK5 Pro:
Large build volume:
The LK5 Pro’s amazingly large build volume allows you to print a wide variety of objects, including large models and multiple objects at once. That’s right, no more having to switch out the prints to get multiple pieces done. With this build volume, almost any multi piece print can be done in one click!
Dual blower kit:
The LK5 Pro comes with a dual blower kit, which helps to improve print quality by cooling the filament more quickly after extrusion. This is a huge deal as it really does show in the printing process!
Stable triangular structure:
The LK5 Pro has a reinforced triangular structure that reduces vibration and improves print stability. AKA the diagonal support beams I was raving about earlier
The LK5 Pro comes 90% pre-assembled, making it easy to set up and start printing right away. After a few screws and plugs, you’re ready to roll!
4.3″ touchscreen display:
Again, I LOVE this touchscreen!!!
FAQs about the Longer LK5 Pro:
Is the Longer LK5 Pro good for beginners?
YES! This printer is an AMAZING printer for beginners! It has a huge build plate which means more space for creativity as well as practice printing!
Is the Longer LK5 Pro worth the price?
YES! This printer accomplishes a lot for the price point and is set pretty well for its features.
What is the best thing about the Longer LK5 Pro?
THE BUILD VOLUME!!! It’s huge!!! This is my largest 3D printer and I have to say, the build volume really does matter on some of the prints I do. Having a larger build plate gives me endless options for what I can print.
Overall, the Longer LK5 Pro is an AMAZING value for the money. It offers a large build volume, good print quality, and a variety of features that make it a good choice for both beginners and experienced makers.
