I love my new printer!

I have recently bought this printer and all I could talk about since the day is how good this is. I love this 3D printer! It truly is a cost-effective high speed solution. I have been working on this one for almost 9 hours a day daily since past five days and it just works so amazing without missing a beat.  Hands down, the max micron is the most recommended printer available in the market.

Great printer! This is way better than the $850 printers ive used before. I've only printed with PLA so far, ill update when I try ABS.

I don't suggest heating the hot plate above 50 for PLA. Theres just no need to. I'm getting great quality prints with 50c heat bed, 215c extruder.

I'm having an issue with the X-direction pulley, the screws keep backing out of the pulley, so i tried some gorilla glue. hopefully once it sets I wont have any issue.

The only thing is that for long prints, the heat will cause your PLA to warp before it goes into the hot end.I think this is caused when the PLA bends a little and touches the metal rather than going directly into the PTFE sleeve that takes it down to the nozzle. it could be that simply having a slightly longer PTFE tube would solve the problem. Edit using a 0.2mm layer width seems to move the plastic along quickly enough that this isn't really an issue. just dont expect to make it though large prints at 0.1mm layers.

As for the instructions, I found that the provided pictures worked fine. the printer took around 10 hrs to assemble and begin the first print. It failed to connect to my windows computer, which to be honest is probably an issue with windows, not the board. I'll see how it works on ubuntu. Exporting g-code to a SD card worked perfect.

This is a hobbyist printer and do not expect professional print outs with it. It works pretty well and the aluminum frame gives it the much needed stability to negate the vibrations and wobble the printer causes. Built it without much problem, although the instructions are vague and not very helpful. It took me around ~5-8 hrs for assembly and the printer was able to print immediately. At this price rage the printer is a real deal.

The printer is no easy to build due to the poor assembly instructions. Unfortunately, one of the electric motor for the Z-axis is not strong enough, making some problems, especially with a variable offset in the Z-axis. It's also not possible to control the second head (motion) with the LCD screen. Moreover, there are no connecting instructions for the auto levelling unit. Nevertheless, for the price, it is still a good printer.

"I didn’t buy this printer but I got a chance to test it .

The machine I received was really pretty well packed . Not hart to assemble but just be ready to spend some time putting it together and the PDF would be of great help . All the parts and tools that you need to build it are in the box.

I've had this printer for a week now and love the thing! It works well with PLA and ABS , I even tried wood and got a good print ."
