    what are you printing with ?
    speeds, temps etc.

    It could simply be you need to adjust the z-axis offset to get the nozzle closer to the bed.
    or print slower, or hotter etc.

    well yes.
    different companies will use different pigments and amounts of pigments. So opacity will definitely vary.

    just to clarify - do you have an ender 3 or ender 5 ?
    you said ender 5, but all the links are for the ender 3.
