Easily installed, Standalone 3D Printer

I purchased the Geeetech Acrylic pro Prusa i3 3d printer last October. Initially, I had few problems but it’s always about finding the cause and solution of the problem. The Geeetech Acrylic pro Prusa is a complete 3D printer kit which makes the 3D printing real easy.


The printer came complete with everything which made it easier for me to assemble the parts in an appropriate order. After the assembling, it was pretty easy to get its bed leveled and start the printing.  So, I got my first 3D print printed reasonably in an amazing quality. One outstanding feature I found about the printer is that it comes with a stand-alone functionality allowing me to print without my PC.


I found that the printer motors had a loose connector. Also, the mounting brackets were also not perfectly sized because of which I had to mount it differently than pictured in the instruction manual.  But, even though I had issues these were not huge as I exactly knew which part to replace and it did not stop me from printing.  

I recommend this kit if you are looking for a cheap Prusa i3 kit to play with.

I have been running my Prusa i3 now for about a month. The assembly was a bit tricky. The manual definitely leaves out some steps. However, there is a pretty active forum and the email support was awesome. This is my first 3d Printer and I can honestly say that I have learned a lot in the process. I have already gone through one spool of PLA and working on a second! I would have given it 5 stars if the build instructions were better.

Instruction manual need to be improved. I am a design engineer with a background in electro mechanical systems and robotics and it took me 3 days to get this up and running. Once I got it up and running this is a great machine. I have about 100 hours on it, printing mostly mechanical parts and I am impressed with the dimensional accuracy. I have also been using a Flashforge Creator and the geeetech seems to be better a producing accurate parts.

A decent product. It's worth planning to disassemble the unit nearly immediately, after printing out some of the available upgrades on thingiverse.

It's a curious mix of extremely nice parts, and a few regrettably cut corners. Overall it has more nice parts than compromises however, and it's part of the DIY concept that you'd improve those bits.

Documentation is all video based, which was amazing for assembly. Like other product guides however, the final few steps are missing clarity.

Excellent docs for repetier and cura settings, though this could've benefited from the config settings for the firmware being also included.

I ordered this printer over a month ago and was delivered pretty quickly. The only complaints are that I was never able to get the printer together, It was just too much for me.

I had to give it away to a friend who could assemble it for me. He did charge me for the same but finally after a lot of efforts I have my printer working.

I so wish I had purchased an assembled 3d printer.
