I built my first 3D printer a Reprap Mendel i2. Not an easy task to setup, a lot of fiddling with it and it broke down within a few months. So I ordered a much stable machine to replace my faulty unit.

This printer is just the best one out there, I has almost everything needed in a printer. I am talking about the heated bed, the all metal extruder that works like a charm with any kind of plastic filament. Good and Bright LCD screen, SD card support and the free 2 kg filament and all that for just $340. You must be crazy to not go for this machine.

I am sure if you procure the parts used in the printer individually from eBay, you would be spending more than $500.

My Final suggestion would be don't think again and especially not the negative reviews here, if you know how a 3d printer works this is the best printer ever.



An excellent printer for someone just getting into 3D printing. The first time I ever used this machine was in a MakerSpace in San Fransisco I always wanted to get a 3d printer ever since. Due to the very adjustable temperatures for the extruder and print-bed, you can run almost any filament type on this printer. I have tried both PLA as well as ABS on this printer and little bit of tinkering both work fine, I have used Ninja Flex 3d filaments as well but could not get the kind of prints I was expecting. The printer is pretty good at the price and the extras like free filaments are great.

Get this printer if you want to learn how a 3D Printer works as the assembling will teach you everything about these machines.

This is not like a regular printer were you click print and it’s printed and the paper rarely jams.

Meaning, it's a hobby and will require a lot of time and technique to get good prints and will require constant repair due to the nature of the machine.

The printer takes a long time to assemble and hence it spoils the excitement a bit, the printer manual is not up to the mark which does not help at all.

The Heated bed and the all metal Extruder us a great addition to the printer and the freebies are awesome. I really wish they could make the assembly thing easier to work with.



Shipping was exactly on the expected day, even though I live in Alaska. Came with ALL tools I needed to assemble it. The instructions were frustrating at first because the creators used a model made of clear plastic for the example pictures, but if you look at it long enough you'll figure it out.

EXCEPT for the belt holder under the bed. I had to contact them for a picture to understand what should've been the obvious way to clamp the belt together. But they got back to me almost immediately and the whole thing was virtually painless and a fun project for my fiance and I.

Levelling the Z axis was kinda tedious, but every 3D printer kit has that maintenance added to it. Setting up on the computer was simple, and I successfully started printing the test file on the SD card within an hour of complete assembly. Overall this was an INCREDIBLE buy for me at an INCREDIBLE price. Extremely satisfied. One criticism, your instructions require a lot of imagination.

I bought this i3 kit for my son, it took 1 week to teach him how to use it. Now he creates all sorts of useless widgets, some with moving parts!

Learning to design and create with this product is priceless and will give my son the ability to tackle anything in the future.
