    Drop in replacement indeed

    shadow703793 (verified owner)

    This board is certainly top quality. The soldering and components are very good, MOSFETs and stepper drivers run pretty cool (judged by using a IR thermometer, not quite as good as a thermal cam though). With TH3D now having their EZFirmware site (currently in Beta) it makes it super easy to customize and grab new firmware. I am currently using this on a modified Ender 3 Pro (EZABL Pro, Zesty Nimble, upgraded fans).

    Great Quality!

    Gavin T (verified owner)

    So I haven’t had it in my CR-10S for too long, but I’ll give my thoughts on messing around with it for a week. In short, it’s great! Nozzle temps are absolutely rock solid, I used to get temp fluctuations of +/- 3-5 degrees pretty much constantly, especially at higher temps(yes, I tried PID tuning, I suspect I had a bad board). The temps with this board are on target 99.99% of the time. No fluctuations at all, really impressed with that consistency.

    The silent steppers are no joke either! I pushed it to close to 100mm/sec print speed just to see and still couldn’t hear anything over the control box fans. Throw your stepper dampeners away!

    Would definitely recommend to anyone struggling with consistency issues with their Creality printer or wanting to quiet it down. Well worth the $$ and the couple month wait time

    EZBoard is awesome

    bluecobras09 (verified owner)

    Relatively new 3D printer here and love new things and features. Found TH3D when watching 3D printer videos and was initially looking at the EZABL. When I saw the EZBoard was coming I held off and ordered the EZBoard and EZABL Pro together. What awesome products. I now no longer need to level my bed manually and the printer is so quiet. Also installed the solid bed mounts. Install was easy other than the fact I am getting up in age and my eyes are not the best and reading the small print is difficult. So the documentation and videos are very important to me. And the TH3D provided videos and documentation are excellent. My Ender 5 is a much better printer now.

  5. Fresh breath of life for my CR-10

    Spencer Francisco (verified owner)

    I gotta admit, I was getting tired of hearing how loud and clumsy my CR-10 was getting. It wasn’t until I dropped the EZBoard with a combination of Meanwell 350-12 power supply and EZABL into my CR-10. Which has transformed my CR-10 into my best printer in my small fleet of printers. Installing the EZBoard was a breeze. Dealing with the firmware was also a delightful experience with the combination of two things: 1. Firmware file on the SD card will auto flash to the board and 2. EZFirmware site to compile the firmware using a Configuration.h file. TH3D is really ahead on the technology front for customers of all kind of skill sets (beginner to expert).

      Tim when you get about to supporting the touch screen on the 5 plus will it be a firmware thing or a new style of board? I.E. can i buy a board today and just wait until the touch support comes or will a new version of board have to be made to accommodate the touch

      There is no ETA on the BTT Touch support but we’re going to be working on getting it on the current boards as we have extra serial connections on the ICSP header. No concrete ETA or “yes it will be 100% supported” as we’ve just begun testing with those LCDs.

      Will this board work on the Ender 5 Plus? I saw that it wasnt supported on some of the touch screen models and the Ender 5 Plus does indeed have a touch screen. I purchased on for my CR10 and could not be more pleased with both the ease of use and the online configuration tool. I also want to ditch the miserable BLTouch that came with the 5 Plus and use one of your EZABLE kits.

    Wow!

    kirk.grames (verified owner)

    Fantastic, must have purchase for your Ender 3 / Pro. Installation was very simple. I used the online firmware compiler, downloaded the .bin file, cut/pasted it on to the SD card and done!. Now my printer is silent (also purchased all noctua fans). The best part is that my bed temps and bed leveling are so perfect that I no longer need to print rafts for large prints. Im getting NO curling on corners now printing on my glass bed! Very happy with my purchase. Ordered with Priority mail on Sunday, product shipped Monday and I had it by Wednesday. Its nice knowing that this is going to a small/U.S. based company. I have a feeling that TH3D wont be small for long. I definitely recommend.

    Awesome Board

    peters.matt73 (verified owner)

    I have an Ender 3 and was really wanting it to be quieter as I print a lot at night an didn’t like the stock sound of the Ender 3. I’m super impressed with the TMC 2208 drivers and how quiet my stepper motors are. The quality of the TH3D EZBoard is great too, I wanted to purchase a quality board not a cheap pile of junk. It took longer to get the hot glue off the stock board then to plug everything into the new EZBoard. I have a EZOut filament sensor, an EZABL PRO bed leveling sensor and the Dual Z upgrade. I’m happy with all my TH3D upgrades! The steps to compile TH3D Unified Firmware Package with Marlin 2.0 were simple for me but I have previous code experience and I was able to compile the new FW in about 2.5 mins on my PC.

    I would defiantly recommend to anyone considering this product.

    Ultra easy install and great performance

    Anson (verified owner)

    Literally took me 15 minutes to install on my CR-10 S5. The online Marlin 2.0 configuration was also a complete breeze and firmware was installed at first boot up. Performance of my printer has noticeably improved and adjust vref without a meter is an absolute pleasure .

    Great deal, fast postage and a top quality board.

  11. 2nd Best upgrade for my Ender 5 after the EZABL!

    iain.wheeley (verified owner)

    Loving the Marlin 2.0 and the hugely expanded selection of options. Makes working with the EZABL and Run-out detector super easy and reliable. Well documented processes for configuring and managing the FW upgrades.

    Interestingly it is not quite as silent as my previous silent Ender board (slight “chuffing noise from the drivers) but near enough so as not to care. Great product

  12. Perfect Fit!

    Killajoedotcom (verified owner)

    I bought this for my Creality Ender 3 Pro and belive it’s the way to go. This board drops right into place of the stock board and is so much quieter than the old one. It also has provisions for a filament runout sensor, BLTouch or EZABL, and dual Z axis. The firmware update method via online configurator is definitely a plus. I recommend upgrading to this board for all Creality machines.

    SECOND & MOST IMPRESSIVE PURCHASE !

    CRUISER DON RUSSELL (verified owner)

    AS SOON AS I SAW THE LIVE STREEM ABOUT THIS PRODUCT, I DECIDED THAT I HAD TO HAVE IT. I NOW HAVE IT INSTALLED AND FULLY USTILIZED AND ENJOYED THE SUPPORT, VIDEO’S, ETC.. I DID HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH THE SOFTWARE BUT I GOT THAT SORTED OUT. THEN THE REAL PROBLEM AROSE, I ASSUMED THAT MY Z STEPPER WAS GOOD AND IT SENT ME CHASING MY TAIL FOR A WHILE, BUT, PLUGGING Z INTO Y SOCKET AND THE Y INTO THE Z SOCKET TOLD ME THE STORY.
    I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THIS INSTALL AND VERY IMPRESSED WITH WHAT I KNOW OF IT AT THIS TIME. I REALLY LIKE THE EASE OF UPDATING USING “ATOM”. THIS WAS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE WELL WORTH WHILE.
    JUST DO IT !

      Is there any way to set the home position to the stock cr10s homing position? Don’t like the homing to be in the center of the bed cause sometimes filament oozes out during heat up before a print and causes problems..

    • Tim Hoogland

      If the homing is in the center this is because you are using an ABL probe with it and this is normal. The feature is called Z safe homing and is what is needed to make sure the ABL sensor homes 100% on the bed instead of accidentally homing off the edge depending on the mount being used.

    2nd one, easier than the first.

    woodwaker_dave (verified owner)

    I just received my second EZBOARD, and installed it with the EZABL and solid bed mounts on my ENDER 5 Th second one was very easy, since I went through the learning process on the first ENDER 5. Took about 2 hours from start to finish and am printing CHEP calibration cube. This is a great product, does what is is supposed to do and just works. I am working on redoing the cabling on the ENDER 5, to get some kind of wire management. I moved the control box and display to the back and have sleeved all of the cables.

    Happy Down Under!!!!

    visser_chris (verified owner)

    Holy Freaking Cow!!!!! Just installed my EZLITE board. Dead easy swap and straight up flash the firmware for my stock CR-10 with EZABLPRO from the BIN file provided. At first I thought i’d not connected the z axis as the was not a whisper when I was raising the gantry… then noticed it’s moving.

    This is AMAZINGLY silent!!!! You could sleep in the same room with this thing going and the only thing bugging you would be the fans in the control box.

    Fantastic product Tim and a big thanks to all of you at TH3D for the superb quality of your products…. all the way from Australia 🙂

    I am glad I purchased two boards from the first batch. Installed one in my CR10 converted to a CR10S and it is running great. The loudest part of the machine is the 5015 part fan I installed. Movement is smooth, and print quality is top-notch. Definitely recommend to others.

    Purchase for my Ender 3 Pro.
    Very easy hardware install as per the video’s, a few issues getting the firmware built (not TH3D issues but Atom). Got it working with my BLTouch easily (after looking at BLTouch/Marlin 2.0 guides on YouTube, re-wiring the BLTouch connector and a little soldering as the wires pulled out of the connectors on the BLTouch, not the best quality, might look at changing to EZabl in future). I’ve seen a good step up in print quality and down in noise. Connected straight o my existing Octoprint no issues. I’ve mostly been printing PETG on my heavily upgraded printer (my own designed linear rails on Y and working on Z axis upgrade). Not solved my slight vertical lines but it confirmed its either a stepper/hardware issue. So far very, very happy with the purchase, would recommend to anyone looking for an upgrade board, not just for the noise reduction.

      Loved the firmware install from SD Card! Great time-saver. Install went pretty well though my OEM APR probe (similar to the EZABL) wouldn’t work with the new board, probably an issue with pull-up or pull- down resistors on the z-end stop input. So… I ordered an EZABL, and stuck the old Z end stop on in the meantime.

      Print quality is very good now, machine is basically silent as promised…now how can we get the fans silent? :-))

      I have had my first installed on my Ender 5 for about a month. Installation was very easy and simple, since the board is a drop in replacement. I have just finished adding the EZABL and the solid bed mounts. These parts make it so easy to print now. Quiet printing, no manual bed leveling. My only complaint is that I have been waiting for a board to install on my second Ender 5 printer. I have the a EZABL kit ready to go, but need the board!!!

    If I could recommend something — make an instruction list for the CR-10 or CR-10S because it took me awhile to figure out the fan configuration. Not sure why it uses a screw connection for always on fans instead of a 12 volt pin? (which would have been plug and play)

  22. Excellent Quality product combination

    Mike

    I have never endorsed any hobbyist product before…I am a retired M.E. in my seventies… I recently purchased (my brother ordered for me as I don’t have any internet accounts) both your EZBoard and EZABL..I first ordered the EZABL and received it.., A couple of weeks later I ordered the EZBoard, which I received last week…Prior to installing the board, I examined the components that you selected when designing your board…Your design choices were very good which is reflected in how well the EZBoard functions…
    I installed and configured both of them…I have now calibrated the EZABL and had some time to do my own initial testing…Your products perform very well together…They perform as advertised and I personally am greatly pleased… The first layers of the prints I have thus far made, in my opinion, approach perfection…I believe that the printer (Ender3 Pro) functions more smoothly and accurately, and of course quieter, which I attribute to the EZBoard…
    Overall I am very pleased with your products which are attributes of your design principles and component selections…You have engineered great products which I expect will have long lives and functionality and have set a standard by which to measure other like products…I would recommend these products to others…

  24. BLOWN AWAY!!

    mikep419 (verified owner)

    I’m brand new to 3D Printing and feel like I have been having great success. Been researching for months and decided to pull trigger on ender 3 for the tinkerability. Ordered the EZBoard along with the EZABL and EZOUT as my first major upgrades. I’m blown away the installation was a breeze and the firmware installation could not have been easier with the online compiler. Took my time setting up and made sure everything was good to go. First print out took only a small adjustment with baby steps and perfection. The ABL worked flawlessly, the motors are virtually silent, and the printquality is far beyond my expectations. TH3D upgrades were without a doubt worth it.

    I have only two regrets. That in my haste to order when i noticed the boards in stock I neglected to log in and get my benchies. And I didnt order stickers. 🙂 Keep up the awesome work. I can’t wait to see whats coming in the future.

      I don’t use the filament sensor but it is hooked up i just have the little pcb cap that came with the printer is it ok to hook it the same way the the EZBoard and enable it in the firmware for future use?
      Thanks a bunch..

      Just connect the cable as described in the manual and do not enable it in the firmware. Once you want to use it then connect the sensor to the cable and update the firmware. If you are having issues with the stock creality sensor you can get our EZOut sensor here: https://www.th3dstudio.com/product/ezout-v2-filament-sensor-only-replacement-spare/

      You can use a SSR with our board. It will behave just like a DC bed.

      I have TL Smoothers installed should i not use them with the EZboard or will there still be a benefit to leaving them installed? Sorry for all the questions just don’t want to make a mistake and smoke the board when it arrives..

      Remove them. THey will actually cause salmon skin with the 2208 drivers. They are not needed with our board.

      As of posting this at 1/20/20 the firmware is not on the website yet. We have some tuning left to do and should be live on 1/21/20 later in the day. To use this board with the Ender 5 Plus you would need our Ender 5 Plus 12864 LCD Upgrade Kit, the Dual Z Motor Adapter, and the Creality Dual Cable LCD adapter. If you want to use an EZABL Pro kit with it you can use the black/white wire + 2 pin plug for the Z endstop connection or you can modify the CR-10S Pro/Max EZABL Z Signal Cable at one end (snip off part of the connector where there is a pin missing) to fit into the 2 pin Z endstop port.

  27. K.I.S.S Install and firmware customization

    maurice.smulders (verified owner)

    This makes my printer considerably quieter… Now the loudest is the PSU fan and the extruder fan! I love the ease of how to configure and download the firmware. It’s currently setup with a BLTouch (the original bundle from Creality) and works great!

      It will not mainly due to Creality’s choice of proprietary connectors for the hotend/motor/fan on the X gantry it will not work. The board in that also is a different size, format, and mounting hole spacing.

  29. Great replacement board for the Ender 3!

    dmorris68 (verified owner)

    As an incessant tinkerer, I probably spend more time modding and printing mods for my Ender 3 than I do actually printing practical things. As such my first board upgrade was to an MKS Gen L board with TMC2208 drivers, but it was a pain what with having to solder UART wires to let the firmware choose the stepper modes, and it still didn’t get me 32-bit support for Marlin 2.0. I left that upgrade half finished (and my printer half assembled) as life got in the way for awhile. Needing to print something again, I was preparing to try and finish that upgrade when I read that TH3D had released the EZBoard Lite. It had everything I needed and 32-bit support. Took advantage of the Black Friday deal and ordered one. Finally got around to installing it and printing again, and man I’m impressed! Aside from a bit of trouble compiling firmware with PlatformIO (I used the online firmware builder feature to get started until I can figure that out), installation went flawless and I’m amazed at how quiet the printer runs now. I have to constantly look over my shoulder to make sure it’s still printing because all I can hear are the fans! I’m super pleased with this board so far and recommend it highly.

  30. Has to be seen to be believed.

    Brynn MacFlynn (verified owner)

    Holy crap. Like, seriously. I am completely blown away by this thing. I thought, no, there’s no way swapping the drivers could reduce the noise my printer makes. We have it in the dining room, so while it was annoying as stock we’d kind of gotten used to the noise.

    Once I got everything up and running, I was absolutely blown away. The thing is damn near silent, so quiet in fact that the only thing I can hear are my fans, and some minor vibration if it gets too excited and moves too quickly during homing movements. It’s quiet enough I was able to hear that my extruder motor has an issue–something I’d never have been able to isolate with stock.

    Quality is improved, less vibrations = smoother prints and better accuracy on tiny extrusions. I scaled down a print to 30% of original, and it still printed beautifully despite some features being ridiculously tiny. After having struggled with tons and tons of problems with extrusion and leveling, it’s such a relief to get back to the quality we had. The built in fuse is super comforting to know is there, and overall it’s just a great design and structure.

    Flashing the firmware was ridiculously simple. Like, I can do it for funsies now. Can’t recommend the online configurator enough, and I’m not looking forward to having to do it by hand when my husband’s Ender 5 shows up tomorrow. Maybe I’ll get him a board for Valentine’s Day…

      Hi Tim

      Can this board be used on a Tevo Tornado? If so would I have to remove the external stepper smoothers? Love all your upgrades and products, my Tevo has never run better just looking to see if I can quiet it down a bit. Thanks

      Absolutely. This is a direct replacement (as long as you do not have the touch screen on the machine). It will run smoother overall and be much quieter. The loudest thing on the printer will be the fans at that point.

  33. Awesome Upgrade

    Jameson Jendreas (verified owner)

    Installed on my CR-10 S. Fairly painless install. Only thing that wasn’t straight plug-and-play are the case fans, but still easy to install. Renders the printer nearly silent. I had issues with building firmware in Atom and ended up using Visual Studio Code instead (as I use VSC already). Works great with my EZALB. Highly recommend.

    Could you think of a more fair way to distribute the boards? I know you don’t want to do pre orders, but I have been on the wiatlist 3 times, When the boards come in they are gone before I have a chance to purchase. I have a second Ender 5 with an EZABL waiting for the board, but can’t seem to get one, and no idea on when I may be able to purchase.

      To make sure we’re keeping the quality up and not rushing these boards through production we are doing smaller 100-200 runs of boards at a time. We are going to see if we can restore people to the waiting list if they’ve already signed up.

    Is there a specific reason this board is not compatible with the Ender-2? I live in a small, open-plan studio, and would like to make my printer as silent as possible. Installing dampers – with their associated flex – does not seem the best way.

      The Ender 2 uses a completely different LCD than the others and the mounting holes are different. The LCD on the Ender 2 isn’t supported at this time.

      It is since the board is fused at 15A. If you have a bed that pulls more than 13A then an external mosfet is recommended.

      The target market is for the Creality machines (and soon the SV01). But the firmware is open source and the board itself is supported in Marlin 2.0 (the latest version on their GitHub). The main thing would be the LCD since the Creality ones use a single ribbon cable. You can use the traditional 12864 (like what we sell on the site here) with the dual cable LCD adapter board for the display. But do note that the SD card is only going to be used with the onboard slot, not the LCD. Once you have that added on you can set it up like any other board would be in the Marlin 2.0 firmware for any machine.
