Order on 5 Aug, Ship out on 8 Aug, Received it on 10 Aug. There is super fast shipping. Items arrived very well packed. Got it setup in less than 30 mins and what can I say, the printer is awesome. Really easy to setup, level the head, put in the PLA sample filament and I was printing the sample file. Really no fuss at all. And the print look fantastic. This is really the most value for money fully assembled printer you can buy which allows you to print a wide range of material with decent printing size. Highly recommended!!!!!!!

Great 3D printer manufacture. Solid state due the metal body (not work, not acrylic, not printed parts). You don´t have to assemble the entire printer, just join the tower to the base, plug cables and balance plate and you are ready to print.

If you are looking for an assembled printer for the cost of a DIY kit, this is the perfect choice. It is a good and robust entry level printer, but if you are looking for a professional grade printer look for somewhere else.

The Black body of the printer looks elegant and does not need a lot of space; I have it sitting on my desktop just next to my computer. The printer bed calibration can be messy but the 4 screws below the bed are really helpful. I would not say that they are perfect, they do need some experience but they work. The Drag chain looks great and keeps the wiring together and makes the printer neat.

I have printed with ABS and Pla and both seem to work fine, the MK10 works well and I was able to get some good prints at 100 microns. The Filament spool holder should have been placed behind the printer as I have already messed 2 prints because I accidentally bumped the spools making the filaments to eject from the extruder.

The Printer uses open source software’s like Cura & Simplify 3D which are decent but I would have preferred a better customized software like the one you get with Makerbot.

I was expecting a printer that would work right away at a low price that could help me make parts for my research. I got exactly that. I now use it multiple times a day.

Pros:
-Currently, the best priced
-Easy to get running
-Can print well
-Can print large

Cons:
-Slower than other models
-Occasional print failures from controller (may be eliminated with time and effort)

Recommendations:
-Get a backup battery supply. 20 dollars to prevent brownouts from causing failures.
-Go slow. This is not a speedster it's a mule.
-Do not print from USB.
-Invest in good, wide tape after you consume the sheets you're given, and beware of air bubbles.
-Be prepared to learn. 3D printing (your own parts) requires a detailed understanding of parameter interplay.

Awesome printer! Felt like I just robbed a bank this is such great bang for your buck!

I have added a glass bed and the (4) m3 nuts to the leveling bed... Both easy and very worthwhile mods :-)

I did have to tighten up one bolt the holds extrusion assembly to z axis as it was a bit loose so you could wobble print head a bit so definitely worth checking all is secure when you receive.

Cheers !!!
