I've also placed an order on this printer. It looks like quite a solid Prusa i3 for a low introduction price. Lets hope its a good printer! And if not, I guess it might be worth it just for the parts alone

So far so good, machine arrived calibrated and produced demo to perfection. When importing stl file though, it scaled it incorrectly and I had to rescale the model. I'll be in production within a month and should be able to give a better review then



I have had this machine for about two months now. When I started looking at 3D printers I was unsure as to what to buy, after a few web searches I came across the Wanhao i3. Very high number of reviews for this machine. After receiving it I easily saw why. It is a very sturdy machine, the company builds a nice product. The build area may not have the largest size out there but it is a good size for the price. I would also like to say that shortly after I ordered mine Wanhao Steve sent me a email letting me know that he had shipped it, included the tracking number, and advised me on what I need to know before unpacking my machine. He also sent the user manual via email so that I would know before hand what to do so that I wouldn't accidentally damage some of the more delicate parts during the unboxing process. Two thumbs Up for for the machine and the Service!



This printer really blew me away. I know many people with 3D printers as well as my university that has an extensive rapid prototyping lab. While the resolution of the Wanhao isn't anywhere near something like a Dimension Elite or an Objet it is plenty accurate enough for parts that need to fit together well. I mainly needed this to print ABS parts for prototyping for my startup.

There is something to be said about a $500 3D printer that takes less than 20 minutes to setup and print. I literally took it out of the box and removed the shipping support brackets, loaded the filament, turned it on and did the demo print. The head cleans itself before and after every print on its little cleaning station with filament collector. The bed heated properly and no parts have lifted up on me yet, the added glue stick helps keep it down but definitely isn't necessary.

Hopefully the printer will last me awhile and not break because currently this is one of the best purchases I have made in awhile.

Item received within 10 days as 3dprintersonlinestore promised. I was not able to take quality prints, tried all settings but no luck. Then emailed wanhao tech support team. The techie was very quick in responding to emails and answered questions that in an understandable. Now i am printing better prototypes.
