The Always Up-To-Date Creality Mod List

We’ve discussed this topic on the show numerous times, and I’m glad to finally have this done so that everyone interested in the topic can have something to refer to.  

At home, I currently have a Creality Ender-3 Pro and a Creality CR-10S and have done a few “quality of life” upgrades to both along the way.  These mods have been personally vetted for quality and use and are listed here for reference and to help others as they get started with these series of printers on their 3D printing journey.

Fortunately, the vast majority of the parts listed here are cross-compatible across much of the Creality printer line, so even if you don’t have either of these specific model printers, the upgrades should still likely work on whatever model you have!

If you have any questions, comments or other mods you’d like to suggest, contact us and we’ll be happy to review it for adding to the list below!
