The Facebook group is instrumental in building this printer properly. Advice though, use the supplied instructions for the carriage construction, and grab some larger washers so that you can use the upgraded frame brackets.

Packing and components were great, express shipping was actually express, filament seems good enough to start. 10/10 for the price.

This Slimbot 3D printer kit is a perfect DIY kit for the professionals. The auto-leveling along with auto-height detection platform is an incredible feature of this printer. The aluminum frame and its machinery are pretty durable and rigid. It offers extraordinary printing quality. The dimensions and functionality of this printer are out of the box! I strongly recommend learning completely on this printer and being the master in 3D printing arena!

I am using the 3D printer for the first time. Thus, I decided to buy this Electron 3D Slimbot which was quite affordable and pretty easy to learn about the 3D printing technique. It has good build and compatibility.  It was easy to assemble as well.

But, it took more efforts to get precise prints. Also, there were certain issues in positioning the axes and the printing speed was not that good enough. I was not much satisfied. Later, my problem has resolved and now it works well.

Great printer! Worth the price

The Slimbot 3D printer is my first ever 3D printer and I can’t be happier having bought it. I chose it because of its amazing price, easy to use features. I was so correct. It is an incredibly easy to use printer. A great printer for the entry level 3Dprinter for those who want to learn!

The printer also has aesthetic quality and has got sturdy parts. I later came to know that it has got German V-groove wheels for added efficiency. Wow!  With its pro metal extruder, it is very much compatible with PLA, ABS, PETG, Wood, PVA, Nylon and more.

I have been using it for a month now and never had a problem. It is indeed worth the price.

3D printers are completely new to me and I heard about this printer from my colleague and decided to order it. I knew nothing about the assembling process so I took my friend’s help to assemble this printer.

In spite of the manual which came along it took us a lot of time to assemble the printer as the whole process involved a lot of patience and focus. We managed to assemble the printer somehow but as I started taking out the print outs I realized that they are not accurate.

I figured out that the positioning of axes is not correct. It took me more time to correct it and finally I took print outs. I struggled a lot with this printer.
