Just made a first successful print, took me hours to set it all up properly. Good printer for the price, assembly was easy, but it doesn't come with a manual, so I followed these tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7OGtDmFA6R6nBhSznM8lyO57RcmNu6Vk I'd recommend it to everyone who wants to try out 3D printing.
Nothing Beats Electron 3D Slimbot
I opened the box and I got everything I needed to get it run straight out of it. The kit was packaged well with all the parts enclosed in thick, custom-cut foam.
I purchased this 3D printer for my photography album and I’m happy to have made this decision.
The printer includes some good touches including an ACME screw for Z-axis, aluminum heated bed, LCD controller and a decent extruder. Its print speed is very fast. It indeed is an unbeatable printer!
This printer is also known as the Tevo Tarantula. I just finished my first print (yes, this is my first printer), and I'm very impressed.
Join the user group on Facebook (it is a closed group). One of the members put up a video series on building this printer, and there are many other posts that are very helpful.
The manufacturer is also in that group and is responsive to questions and suggestions.
The instructions are just the pictures you see in this ad. I was able to build 95% of this kit with just those images.
I got a great 3D printing experience
If you are planning to venture in the 3D printing world, then I highly recommend you to buy Electron 3D Slimbot. The prints are delivered at great speed. It has a great printing area that gives great prints with correct width. As an amateur in the 3D printing arena, this printer has really helped me.
The sturdy build, auto-leveling platform with height detection- all its features calls you to buy this one. With its reasonable price and outstanding service, this printer is a true winner in this segment.
The build instructions have issues, and there are tweaks that need to be done (see the Facebook group for more info), but overall, it's a damn fine printer for the price you pay.
