I'm very happy with this purchase. The prints are coming out consistently beautiful and I've been able to find many useful and fun items to print. Thingiverse.com has an ever growing collection of free items to print, and tinkercad.com offers an easy way to create objects and inventions on your own. The photos in this review are printed in 'standard' .2mm resolution. They have not been 'acetone smoothed', or sanded. I only removed the support material. There aren't any noticeable 'layer lines' and the level of detail is far better than I expected.
I chose this particular printer because it had the following features:
- Heated build plate.
- Enclosed printing area.
- Dual extruders for HIPS/PVA supports.
- A good size printing area.
- Compatible with any printing software.
- $1,000+ cheaper than the name brand.
I can also say that support on this printer is GOOD. Before it even arrived, I was contacted by 'Tang' via email with a basic introduction and a PDF version of the user manual. I have engaged 'Tang' for two different issues now and all of my emails have been replied to within 24 hours.
1 - One of the leveling wing nuts for my build plate was stuck tight. I was immediately shipped a new bolt and nut.
2- I had trouble with one of the stock filament spools jamming during prints. I was immediately shipped a new spool of filament.
Great prints, great features, great support, great community, and great price.
