I looked at various 3D printers for weeks before settling on the Max Micron - Aluminium Frame Dual Head & Auto Levelling 3D Printer. I chose the printer because it was made using European standard aluminum structure, the heated bed, the integrated auto leveling controller and most parts are metal.

This is a buying suggestion for anyone looking to buy a DIY 3d printer, make sure you buy a printer which has all metal parts or at least injection molded.

The printer’s assembly was not easy as it had too many small parts and getting them together was a real task. My first print failed miserably as the cura software starts printing a few mm above the zero established by the endstop. Had to use simplify 3d to get great results.

Stick with it and you will enjoy 3D Printing.

I'm not upset with the purchase, and I have had a good experience with the kit. I give this a 3 stars, because it does have some issues, but none that have made me unhappy with the product.

I have had a lot of fun with this kit, and after some fiddling, have gotten some pretty impressive prints out of it, considering it's a $400 option compared to the $1000+ options out there. That being said, this is definitely a kit for "maker/tinkerer" types who enjoy problem solving and the act of constructing your own devices.

I am one of those people. Based on what I've been reading and on 3d websites, the product has come a long way, and is good to go out of the box, assuming you get it assembled properly.

Machine took longer than usual to arrive. There was an issue they wanted to get right before shipping. 3d printers online store was on top of emailing the Manufacturer to get it shipped.

Had the machine assembled in a few hours. Instructions on the included sd card were sufficient, but called out the wrong screw a couple of times.

And had not been updated to the model I ordered. The kit had all it's parts except for 4 T-slot anchors. After assembly and crude nozzle adjustment, I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the prints. I have set up and run Makerbot and Ultimaker, and neither one completed its first print.

The Max Micron did. You will have to tinker with this machine, and a little bit of knowledge of 3d printing will help trouble shoot immensely, it is well worth the price.

It’s one of the cheapest 3d printer kit available out there, but it’s far better than most of them. I ordered my printer 3 weeks ago and the printer was promptly delivered within a week. I was able to get the thing together in 2 days that too after getting some help from a colleague.

The assembly manual was not helpful at all and with No online videos available it was a really difficult to get any help.

The printer works well once the it is put together, and does not need babysitting while it’s printing. I have tried printing with most kind of commercially available filaments and it works.

I would have given 5 stars if I could get the printer together myself.

I received this printer about 4 weeks ago, and so far I have been very satisfied with it! When I received the printer the two pulleys I received for the X and Y belts had holes which are too large for the stepper motor shafts.

I ended up calling the customer care and they replaced the faulty parts within a few days and everything works well now. Great price for a very large build area, auto bed levelling probe works well and the aluminum used to make the printer looks really high quality.

I could print a lamp shade on it as it was an 18 hours print I was worried that things would go wrong but to my surprise things went very well.
