I ordered this printer 3 months ago and I am not impressed with its parts as well as print outs. First of all when I assembled this printer which was a stressful job in itself, I realized that the printer became a heavy machine. I wanted a portable printer which can be carried around easily.
Secondly, when I started working with this printer I faced issues with nozzle as it gets jammed again and again which consumes a lot of my time. I basically ordered this printer for my minor projects but due to its poor quality even my minor projects are consuming a lot of time.
T Rex is a bit noisy. For the first time in two months, my nozzle got jammed even though I am not switching the filaments regularly. Also, this machine does not have an enclosed build volume. Therefore, the prints are directly exposed to ambient air temperatures disturbing the quality of my models. Can’t print with ABS. Worked fine for PLA!!
A Typical 3 Star Printer!
I like working on Formbot. Earlier I had a portable printer which could only print small models. I was hardly able to print nuts. But this printer has large build-up volume. Also, the extruder is optimized. The only problem is after switching to a non-portable device you can’t get that comfortable.
Can’t blame them though!
Overall 5-Stars for Formbot…
This printer works fine when I use ABS and PLA. But yesterday, for the first time I tried printing Surfboard Fins using Nylon filament. And I was shocked at how this printer reacted. First, it burned my model a bit and then there were some fumes. Even though I couldn’t smell it but safety is definitely a concern now since my daughter is usually around when I am printing. Other than that, the printer works pretty fine. Good Quality!
I have called the company for customer support and will post soon about the quality of their service. So far I am counting on this blog: (Keeping my fingers crossed!)
This printer arrived quicker than I had expected. It came in perfect packaging which was done thoughtfully that made me easily remove the printer from its box. It had the setup manual but I don’t know what went wrong as I took 2 hours for setting it up. I was relieved after setting it up.
I am happy for its multi-support software proficiency. It works with Cura, Slic3r and more without any obstructions. I love the print quality as well as its print speed. I have already made so many models on wood and my old jeans and they look amazing!
