    Creality Ender-3 slanted Nozzle

    Hi guys, new member here.

    I?ve just received my first 3D printer, the Creality Ender-3 and
    while assembling the unit I noticed that the nozzle is slanted
    and not vertical on its holder unit.

    Is this normal or do I have to try to make it vertical?
    Did I receive a faulty nozzle unit?

    Thank you.

    that sucks.
    And yes it really does need to be vertical.

    I've contacted GearBest and after a lot of persuasion.. they agreed to send me
    a replacement nozzle with heater block.

    I haven't tried the printer yet, but is there a particular signature on the prints
    that suggests a tilted nozzle ?

    Thanks!

    lol your's is the first (non-deliberate) tilted nozzle I've ever seen.
    Probably just general printing issues.
    Who knows, might actually work. have a go :-)

    Indeed... :-)
    This must be a first because I could not find anyone else with a similar problem.

    Here is my first 3D print with the sample included filament :

    that dice is petty impressive.
    Can't see any obvious issues.
    if that's with the tilted nozzle. I - personally - would leave it as it is :-)

    Yes, its with the tilted nozzle!
    Maybe all the nozzles should be slightly tilted..
    I will leave it as it is. Thanks.
