I am a project engineer and regularly use 3D printer for printing purpose! Geeetech Prusa is a very good and efficient printer. Assembling it is very easy. The sticker price is low. It is a great piece of open-source hardware in case you want to dip deep into the fuzz of open-source 3D printing. That being said, if you want a 100% reliable, zero-maintenance printer, go for this one...
I recommend it to all my colleagues.
Assembly: It came with everything and was rather easy to assemble once I realized the correct order. I would recommend keeping blue tape and a power cord handy!
Printing: I got it printing reasonably within 3 prints and as this is my first 3D printer I think that is amazing. Printing experience on ABS filament is the best so far!
It is a good cheap DIY 3D printer, perfect for beginners or budget buyers. Build process is easy as is the usage.Thomas
I would give Prusa an average rating!
I bought one few months ago, Prusa i3 X is a good and strong 3D printer with acrylic frame. However, the mechanical design is weak. The nozzle is pushed up and the extruder support is not strong. After all of this and few minor changes, the machine works well. Good precision with ABS! If you want to print in wood filament, check-out the blogs posted here:
It is hard to believe that I got such an amazing printer at very economical price. It is equipped with many features which makes the whole printing process a lot easier. The flat aluminum alloy print surface offers better and precise printing quality every time. Some of the advanced features of the printer include heated print surface and zero backlash drive system which were not there in the printers which I saw online. This is one of the best 3D printers I have and I am very happy to own it.
I ordered the printer for my wife. She started a new business of DIY projects so I thought this printer will be a great help. And I was right, as the printer gives a life to her DIY ideas. She is able to print high quality models which have actually doubled her number of clients and she is getting new orders every day. Initially she faced layering issues but after contacted customer care this issue got resolved. She is able to deliver her projects on time due to the exceptionally good printing speed.
