Kit delivered in 11 days, but only with prompting & several shipping errors.
Kit included 2 top plates but no base plate. For 5 days I have been asking for a replacement; still no confirmation/tracking/ETA.
Geeetech ignored 3 requests to post the acryllic patterns so that I can laser cut my own base plate.
Minor delamination on 2 printed parts. Reprinted 1
(http://www.geeetech.com/wiki/images/1/1e/Geeetech_delta_rostock_mini_G2_%26G2s_STL.rar). Superglued the other.
Another review claims "Once the printer was delivered and unboxed it was operational within an hour". Seems impossible w/o help. Kit has ~480 parts. 5 hours for my build, 1 for software & calibration.
Carriage design doesn't ensure reliable activation of end stop switches. Auto leveling probe seems mechanically iffy. Will modify both.
Happy with my kit choice, just not service. Geeetech is more responsive when 3dPrintersOnline is included in the mail.
Fast shipping, safe package, freebies, good offer, but when taking dual color prints, I'm getting some sort of extra bubbles, support team said that this is due to settings in the G-code, let me try with different speed and temperature, even assembly instructions was okay to understand. overall I'm satisfied with this printer.
I got mine delivered last week, So far pretty happy with it. It was not very easy to setup but then I am really messy with wires and I cannot complain.
The DIY kit did not need any soldering and that really helped. Sure I had some minor issues with belt tension but the manual that came with the printer helped me sort the issue.
I mostly print parts related to machine designs and have been blown away with the quality of the prints. The Printer comes with heated bed and I could print PLA and ABS on the printer. My next plan is to print using Ninjaflex and hope that works as well. The Dual extruder look high quality and once you get around calibration of the print bed (which can is difficult) it prints beautifully. I hate the slow printing speed, anyone else having the same issue?
I would recommend this printer for beginner and enthusiast.
This is a good printer for a good price. I was surprised with what a 3D printer could bring to our life. It is fun to see the designed model comes to reality that I can actually hold by my own hand. Print quality is decent.
The printer comes with features like heated bed and dual extruder which are only available in high end expensive printers. Seller provides excellent customer service. The customer support is quick and helpful.
The hardware looks decent but I hated the software, I had to do a lot of tinkering before I could really get to printing.
A better software support would have earned 5 Star rating but I would settle with 3 Stars for now.
I bought this printer for my dad as a birthday gift; the printer was delivered in 5 days and came with nice packing. My dad was able to assemble it in 2 days and was pretty excited about it.
He managed most of the assembly himself but did complain that the manual was not very helpful. He had to refer to online video to get the printer up and running.
The printer comes with Dual extruder which works well; we have already used the printer to print using ABS, PLA and I am amazed at how quickly my dad has become a printing geek with this printer. They seem to be using a new extruder which prints finer resolution prints, the results are pretty impressive. The Acrylic casing of the printer seems to be high quality and does not feel like cheap plastic.
3d printers online store also provided LCD Display, SD card reader, a Spool Holder and a KG of PLA for free, which was really nice of them. All this for just $340 was like the best deal ever.
