I own Robo 3d printer for 2 years. Recently purchased wanhao i3 here. The print quality is same as what I had with Robo 3d. But the print speed is not much faster as Robo 3d printer.

Only ready-to-print 3d printer for $400. Worth for the price.



I set up the printer yesterday, and so far it has been working great. Set up was easy, but it was important to read the instructions closely. I did not have any problems. Many compatible designs can be found at Thingiverse. The quality seems just as good as the printers that cost much more. So far it's been a great 3d printer for the price and I have no complaints.



I read it in many online reviews that the printer is ready to work straight out of the box. But I had to make minor changes and fix few things up before taking the print outs. The printing quality is outstanding and the best one I have ever experienced. The printer makes noise while printing but I guess that is very normal. I am happy with the printing speed which is good and maintains its consistency even if I am printing for hours.



I ordered the printer because I read it online that it does not require any assembling. I just switched it on and it was ready to print. Initially I only printed small objects but after sometime when I decided to print larger objects I realized that the build-up area is not very huge. I tried printing a larger model and it was not precise. The print prints well on nylon, ABS and PVA and I get exact results whenever I print smaller models. I am happy with high quality extruder and other parts of the printer are also good.



My first 3D printer and I'm very happy with it. I unboxed it plugged in the SD card and printed the 'OK hand' that was on there within 20 minutes and was very impressed with the quality of the print and how easy it all was. I had read many reviews on this printer which had suggested a few mods and tweaks would help it go from a very good printer to an excellent one. I was very impressed to find that Wanhao had obviously listened to the community and had already made most of the changes to the latest version of the printer. I'm very happy with my purchase.
