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.

Fantastic model!

I was disappointed with the performance of my former 3D printer. Purchased the 3D Slimbot on recommendation of a friend. I’m really happy with my printer. It’s great to use. My kids also love it. The parts are well designed. The assemblage was easy because of the clearly defined instructions.

We work for five to eight hours on this printer daily and it has never broken or troubled us since the day we bought it. The print quality is exceptional while keeping the noise minimum. Highly Recommended!



Good machine at this price, but you really need to know how to fix things and ideally this should not be your first 3d printer. For instance I had to tap my own holes in the aluminium heatsink and solder one of the wires on the homing sensor because it arrived detached. The default firmware also didn't work with repetier but using repetier firmware the machine was up and running.

The value here is fantastic. If you're thinking about buying this and maybe trying to decide between this one and a different printer, you can't go wrong with this one. For just $239 it’s a steal. The printer doesn't need more time for building,

I would recommend people to get the heated bed upgrade and the Pro E3D Bowden Metal Extruder. While the first lets you print with abs the second upgrade helps melt any kind of plastic. As the E3D has no PTFE in the hot regions, it allows the extruder to be heated at 300 + degrees which allows the printer to print with nylon.

I have my printer melting plastic as I write this review and I am very happy with it.



Printer is reasonable for the money and I the delivery was quick.I was printing models from the included SD card in two hours (I actually enjoy reading manuals).

I hit a snag an hour into production when "Y" stepper motor starting missing and screeching and stalling during prints resulting in filament globing in one place of model until I canceled the print.

I have since then called the customer services and they said they will replace it for me after chinese holidays cant wait to receive :(
