Customer service has been excellent. There was a piece, non-critical, cracked in shipping (not their fault IMO), and they are shipping a new one plus giving me a small gift card - so from that standpoint I'm very positive. The printer still operates just fine.
The printer is sleek, nice, has cool lighting, and the filtration system is really a plus. I notice if I leave one of the doors open during printing, I will notice some minor eye irritation printing PLA PRO if I sit in front of the printer for a long time; therefore I feel this feature is really important if you use this printer indoors. I was able to get the included software to work properly to print samples and new projects.
Of particular interest to myself and my kids was the ability of the software to import Minecraft files for printing. We were able to print a skyscraper from one of the levels!
So far I think this is a great printer for the money. The only reason I give 4 star and not 5/5 is the following. I have found the PLA feed process not completely bulletproof over the course of a long build. The angle at which a feed tube goes into the printer head is sharp enough that the friction can cause the PLA fiber to beak mid-print.
I have had to play with hand feeding some slack line vs. opening the top cover and allowing feed directly from the spool at the expense of losing the nice filtration feature. All of the issues are surmountable but perhaps some improved design in the feeding process could make this a truly perfect printer.
Being a research scientist, I have to use printers on regular basis. Wiiboox is a nice printer. It has great looks. I loved the integrated camera for remote monitoring. This printer is easily adjustable.
Thanks to its four-way open design! The only thing I did not like is its bright LED light. Looking at it for long duration has caused me eye-infection!
It is a good printer. I will recommend 4-stars
Bang for the bucks!
I had been researching 3D printers for a few months before purchasing but was so confused and couldn’t judge which one would be the best for me. So, I asked for advice from my brother and he suggested me to buy this printer. I am thankful to him and here is the breakdown of why I really like my new printer:
Comes in a great price
Size is also perfect, not that bulky, it fits perfect on my table
Assembly was little baffling, but my brother helped me out and we did it in less than 2 hours.
The printing accuracy and speed is superb
Supports array of filament
The only issue is with the extruder, it tends to get heated up a lot. Otherwise, it’s a very nice printer. Highly Recommended!
I've been using this printer for quite a long time now. Max Micron just works fine. Luckily, I have never had a trouble working with it. Its best feature is remote feeding double cold extrusion system which maintains the heat and efficiency! The resolution, print detailing, display screen, mk3 heat bed- everything is superb.
I am satisfied with this upgraded version of MkS base!
5 stars from my side!!!
I ordered this printer 3 months ago and it arrived much after the expected delivery time. I was very disappointed as my project got delivered late and the client refused to extend the contract with me.
Anyways, coming back to the printer, I was able to assemble it within few hours and I did my own research on the internet as the instructions were not very clear.
Finally when the printer got ready to use I managed to get average quality prints in reasonably good time. I am disappointed!
A great 3D printer! Perfect print quality
YAY… I received my printer two weeks back and it has been printing on and on since. I’ve finally found a 3D printer designed keeping my demands in mind. Its intuitive manual is easy to understand and as the printer comes partially assembled, the assemblage becomes pretty easier.
I give it full points for its packaging, overall build quality, speed and size. This printer is a good one comparable to the ones that cost twice as much.
Alike its name, the Formbot T Rex is just good in performance. It speed is very commendable. Its high temperature extruder and laser engraving function are the two features that attracted me a lot. Even, Engraver printer assembling is very simple with provided manual instructions. The construction of Formbot T Rex is very durable.
The only issue that troubled me was the noise produced while printing. Overall it is a nice printer.
I am a novice at 3D printing and this is my very first 3D printer. Because of its amazing features, I give this printer 5 stars. I have to say that the printer is really impressive. I have a lot of fun working on it.
The print quality is superb, they are smooth and clean. My first ever print with this printer was flawless. It is a fast printer and shows great open-source software compatibility.
I am contented to have bought this!
The printer was shipped to me in good condition. When I ordered this printer I already knew that I will need a lot of time to figure out things and get them rightly done. So I spend a lot of time while assembling it.
Initially I faced problems with the stop switch present on the x-axis as it was making a lot of noise but then I called the customer care and these guys helped me out. Now the printer is working fine and the printing quality is reasonably good. Not a bad printer for its price.
We have been using this printer for almost two years in my second grade classroom. I'm excited that my students have a head's up on a technology that most people are not aware of yet. We have explored the many uses of this tech, including the medical applications.
They are amazed that it is predicted in ten years a human heart will be printed. Some of my students are telling me that they want to be an engineer or designer when they grow up. Before school ended we had a student from another classroom come spend time with us -the printer was printing and he asked, "What is that?!!" One of my quieter students strolled right up and proceeded to tell him all about it.
So far the printer has run well. When we start up school again in August I look forward to sharing with another class this amazing technology!
I ordered this printer 6 months ago and I am so happy that I chose this one from a variety of other 3D printers available online. The 3D printer kit is of high quality and includes everything from metal extruder, linear belts and all the other equipment which are required to assemble this printer or make it function properly.
The assembling process was very easy and I was able to complete it in 2 hours. The print quality is great and I am satisfied with it.
I learned a lot about 3D printer while assembling this kit and I am highly impressed with the filament compatibility which is PLA, ABS, HIPS, WOOD, PVC, Nylon, PC and Flexible PLA and makes my work really easy.
We purchased the Wanhao Duplicator two weeks ago for our office work. This 3D printer is quite useful and we could print thousands of items even models as big as an oven toaster with precision.
Our company deals with swift modeling and testing and we need our work to be done faster and all thanks to the high printing speed of this printer, we are able to print huge volumes in lesser time than we used to before.
The large build area and professional print quality makes it the best for professional needs. Recommended!
I bought this 3D printer from 3dprintersonlinestore.com last month and I am very happy with the print quality of this 3D printer. I am an employee in the State University and we design CAD training tools. The software of this printer is easy to use and setup is straight forward. I’ve never had any problems with it.
I am in love with its design and efficiency. It is a premium machine which works smoothly. I highly recommend buying this 3D printer for professional uses as well as for beginners and hobby enthusiasts.
Worth 5 stars!
I am thrilled with this upgraded version! This Delta printer has very smooth functioning. It was easy to set up. The Calibration part was easier. The machine gives excellent prints. Even the delivery was quicker than expected. What else is needed?
I will recommend this user-friendly printer to everybody!
I surfed for around 6 days online before ordering this printer and I am not satisfied with what I ordered.
First of all the printer arrived much later than the expected date and I was not able to complete my college project on time. Secondly, it took me a lot of time to assemble the printer but I managed somehow.
After the assembling process I faced problem with bed leveling as I was not able to get the leveling right and it consumed a lot of my time to get the things done.
Finally I managed to solve all the problems and took printouts which were of good quality. Not recommended if you are not a professional in handling 3D printers.
I am a professional in making phone cases and with so much of variety available in the market we have started making phone covers using the latest 3D technologies.
I already own one 3D printer and this is my second one and definitely the most advanced and the most amazing one. Its printing speed is so good that my workers can now make so many phone cases in a day. I am planning to buy one more 3D printer so that I can double my business and sale.
This 3D printer is really beneficial to me and now I am looking forward to the other one too which I am going to order soon.
Enthralled with Prusa!!!!!
I love this printer. The calibration was very easy. I can easily work on my Mac!
The print speed is indeed up to 100 mm/sec. The build-up volume is cool. The aluminum chassis body is very eye-catching and this printer is lightweight. I don’t have second thoughts about this product!
One Liner: VALUE FOR MONEY! And 5 stars!
I am not a native English speaker. I was worried about the Assembling Part. This printer had integrated motherboard. Easy to Use and Easy to Connect! It has good Metal Frame Design.
I had most satisfying experience. Will recommend to my colleagues!
One of the best 3D printer, I ever had! Aluminum frame, delta design and powerful extruder are the three features that makes the FLSUN Kit my foremost choice.
I like its wonderful print quality and speed. I use it for Wood, ABS and PLA filament. FLSUN is stable as well as durable. This European standard 2020 metal frame ensures exceptional printing effect.
I was able to assemble it in almost 10 hours with provided easy understandable image guidance and written instruction. Calibration took additional 4 hours. It was bit time consuming but simple.
The best thing is if you want to modify it you can modify it easily.
This printer is WOW! Its acrylic chassis is really appealing and durable. My many hours research finally ended on this model by Geeetech which is really fulfilling my needs.
I must say the newer version with multiple filament compatibility is a promising feature in molding and printing 3D objects. Shipping and dispatching were handled with care and there were no custom taxes for Italy customers (this I got to know at the time of order placement).
I was really amazed and thankful for their free local warehousing! The 100 micron resolution gives precise and detailed prints which is what I was looking for!
Great job! 5 star!
This is a great little printer for the price. I actually regret not getting the larger model, now, but I can always print some upgrades! I built my own original MakerBot Cupcake "back in the day" and, though it was fun, I never was really satisfied with it as it was just a PITA to get going. Plus it was noxious with all the ABS fumes. The new PLA is much better, but there is still a bit of toxicity (~1/10th of ABS supposedly) with it so make sure you have decent ventilation. I put a HEPA filter next to mine and it seems to help. Actually, I'm wondering when they will start adding scents to the PLA filament to cover it up. HA!
One problem though (-1 star). It looks like there might be some manufacturing defect with the base plate. There seems to be a "hump" in the top right edge if you are looking down at it while facing the print head. I had to do quick a bit of adjusting the base with some spacers to work it out but now that is done, it's working great. Incidentally there seems to be a lot of people that have the same issue in the same place so I expect there is some manufacturing problem that they might be able to correct at some point.
Minor gripe: Need a better way to remove clogs from the print head. I had one and I was lucky I had a small drill and enough experience to disassemble it (though there are assembly instructions available and you just go in reverse). I would recommend that they include a little drill bit to help drill out the problem (burnt plastic) if you can't just take off the nozzle and push it out.
Just used my 3D printer for the first time and I loved it very much. I would suggest everyone to go for it as it has so much to offer at affordable prices. This 3D Printer consists of redesigned extruder which cools down instantly.
This user-friendly product provides plugs in different shapes to ensure easy assembling of device and safety. Overall, it is an outstanding product and a must-have at home and office!
I purchased this 3D printer for my teenage son who loves to play with graphic designing. He is very happy with his new printer. It’s so far so good! My boy is a tech-expert.
He did the whole assembly on his own with the help of the operational guide that arrived with the box. I just had to help him with tightening the screws.
My son completed his entire project on the day printer arrived. This 3D printer offers incredible technology at a great price.
I like It!
For a professional, the Folger Tech Cloner is a great investment. The Folger printer can be used in any office setup. I received this DIY kit in a secure packaging and was able to assemble it quickly with the provided instruction manual. I admire the high color retention print quality of this 3D printer.
I basically use it to print Wood, and PVA. Its LCD screen works efficiently and thank God I can see what’s happening. This is worthy product at such a sticker price!
I bought the Max Foldbot kit almost 6 months ago; the manual was incredibly well written and it was very easy to assort the kit. Firstly, its folding feature is praiseworthy. It worked great from the start. It has admirable print speed about 50 to 150 mm/sec and delivers large prints in incredible print quality.
The aluminum body of this printer looks rigid and it is a lightweight machine in comparison with other. I enjoy printing on this printer without any fuss and fret. It is delivering smooth and glossy prints from the very first day to till yet.
Further, I have updated my printer with the features automatic platform leveling along with automatic platform height detection by additional spent which is now more fun working on this printer. Its compatibility power with various filaments and applications make it a versatile machine. Truly recommendable device!!
I've owned several FDM printers including PrintrBot, Ultimaker and MakerBot. This printer blows them away with its print quality and consistency and is made of Open Source components.
Don't be fooled by its low price. The MakerBot I had cost 10X more but was made with cheap injection moulded parts that broke easily.
The Ultimaker had an extruder that jammed all the time and the PrintrBot used a non standard print head that quite often leaked and was expensive to replace.
Do yourself a favour. Buy this printer and take some time to learn how it works and how to replace parts. You will find that FDM printers are really all the same and there is no point in buying some company's proprietary technology.
Afinibot semi-assembled printer is a good option for its price but certainly not the best. Not recommended for beginners.
However, it delivers HD-quality prints and provides large printing area. But, its supporting gantry speed was not up to my expectation which was the only issue that dissatisfied me. Also, the power issue was annoying me while working.
All in all, I am quite satisfied with this printer as my problem has resolved. I got FREE timely shipping and it was impressive in terms of packaging.
Wanhao 3D printer is a pretty satisfying printer with solid metal frame. My overall experience with it is reasonably great. Its print quality as well as speed is superb. Every time I use it I get brilliant prints with great color retention. Initially, I bought it for printing on simple models but now I am using it to print on the complex models.
The thing that irritated lot was my first print. Even though, late delivery of Duplicator 6 3D Printer was still acceptable. I had to continuously ping tech support and customer services for help.
The best thing about this 3D printer is its ability to print layers as thin as 100 microns at a wonderful speed. The printing kit comes in nice packaging and the prints delivered are of fair quality as well. Processing of STL and PNG images was very easy.
The printing bed has an amazingly spacious area. I also liked the auto-calibration mechanisms. As a mechanical engineering student, I have worked with a number of 3D printing kits but this one is by far the best that I have come across.
I already own two 3D printers which I use in my office but I wanted to add a delta 3D printer to my collection. The printer arrived on time and as I was too excited to have it, I started assembling it the minute it arrived.
But assembling was not that easy as the instructions were not clean and I got stuck at so many places. After completing the assembling process I was really happy with the final outcome.
This printer is the best one I own till now. Its print quality is outstanding. The LCD display is very clear and the SD card support makes my work really easy.
As a customer, I am quite happy with my purchase!
With large print area and upgrade add-on feature, the printer is usable as soon as it comes out of the box. The auto-leveling as well as auto-calibration mechanism also amazed me a lot.
In its frame construction all parts are metal constructed thereby, it is high in strength and durable. Its ball bearing v-grove wheels ensures smooth operability.
This smart DIY Kit has everything included along with manual as well as filaments. So, as soon as you assemble it you can start printing. Highly recommended!
Awesome folding feature! I loved it!
I must say is ‘more bounce for the ounce’! Its exceptional print quality and print size with high-defined colors and saturation is the most appealing aspect! The one thing that I liked a lot about this printer is the folding feature which made it easy for me to carry it around.
The shipping and delivery of the product were amazingly done; it came with proper packaging to give proper security of its delicate parts.
Another add on feature is the LCD control panel and 8 GB SD card support! The printing speed of 50 to 150 mm/sec is great as I am quite impatient while working. A 5 star rating to it from my side!
This is my first build of a 3D printer. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this kit together. I've printed several objects now, and all came out fine with a minimum of tweaking.
I can't overstate how important it is to square up your frame as you build the base and also when attaching the uprights. A little extra effort here will prevent a lot of grief later.
Remember to lubricate ALL of the linear and axial bearings! If you forget, you WILL have to disassemble parts of the unit to get to them and, of course, realign the unit again.
Be aware that the Z-Axis motor mounts are also used to help stabilize the frame uprights. Make sure the motor mounts are butted up against the frame to increase strength and stability.
The auto-leveling sensor is a great feature! It makes it so easy to prep the bed for printing.
I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that this is one nice printer for the money spent. Easy to use, low maintenance, and full of features.
Performance Driven 3D Printer!
Great features! Folger Tech Cloner is the one of the best 3D printer that I have used so far. It came in nice packaging that was secure too. Its assembly was simple using provided instructions also I didn’t have to juggle for the components all were present in the kit.
I bought this printer to print ABS and wood materials especially and I am amazed with its out of the box functioning. Truly impressive! I haven’t till yet faced any power supplies issues. Its printing speed is very creditable. Its print quality has exceptional accuracy and saturation.
The additional SD card and 2004 LCD make it a great standalone printer.
Superb Printer at an Economic Price!
My previous 3D printing experience was little bad, therefore I was pretty unsure whether it will match up with my needs or not.
But amazingly, this Wanhao Duplicator 6 printer not just counterparts with my requirements but was out of the box! The best thing about this printer is its HD quality and open-source software compatibility.
This compatibility allows you scanning, design and slicing options. The printing speed is also very commendable. You can use it for part customization too!
I have worked with so many 3D printers before and I have seen even better than this. It is a good printer for its price but definitely not the best. Being a machinist, I know how stuffs work and how to properly get your work done. But for tech amateurs, this 3D printer could be a little trouble.
The software and the functioning is a bit too complex. But once you get along with it, then the printer works fine. Talking about the print quality- its HD print resolution will amaze you.
The printer has an open-source software compatibility that would help you build great designs with ease. If you can do a little tweaking with the machine stuff, this is an ideal 3D printer for you!
I ordered this kit last month and it was delivered in 4 days. It was securely packed. Easy to assemble, the Afinibot Micro Delta printer comes with simple follow up instructions.
The bearings and pulleys of this well designed printer are of superior quality. The printer works very well post assembling.
The print quality is superb. It features an LCD screen displays clear instructions. It has high printing speed and is functional to the core.
Utmost accuracy, stability and high precision prints best describes Formbot T Rex 3D printer.
Initially I bought this Formbot T Rex for my smaller designs but I am amazed with brilliant color retention that I started using it for my bigger designs too. Its optimized extruder structure and superb magnetic base lemme switch of extruder kits swiftly and hassle-free.
You can also load filaments like metal or carbon very smoothly. This had brought a new edge to my architecture design business since I always crave for intensely carved designs. Its devising is also simple.
The 3D printing technology is improving day-by-day and this Prusa printer is a great example of this. I work in the technical equipment department in the state university and we deal with lot of products every day.
I would say that the Prusa printer is one of the best I’ve come across. Its print quality is great and it is quite easy to operate.
It works in both STL and G-code formats. It is a wise purchase if you’re looking to buy something for professional use.
I work in the Automobile sector and use 3D printers for prototyping parts of the vehicles on daily basis. Last month, I purchased CreatBot DX Plus for home purpose.
My son is only six and is already a big transformers fan. He wants to design robots. I can tell you the prints are equally beautiful in PLA, ABS, HIPS and PVA, as well as other filaments. It indeed has a resolution of 100 microns! I am absolutely thrilled with it!
5 stars from my Little Optimus Prime!!
I have been designing 3D models for quite some time now. I saw this printer with a friend of mine and got to learn about its unique features. I was so impressed that I decided to buy it that very moment. This 3D printer has a unique MK10 extruder.
I found the plane shaking which kind of worried me at once, but later on I got the whole idea of fixing it well and came with perfect prints.
One great thing about this printer is that it is compatible with a number of filaments. The extruder doesn’t trouble much and things go pretty smooth. So, I am happy with my purchase.
Overall the Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 is a nice printer. I am pretty satisfied with its brilliant quality prints and superb speed. Even the assembling of this smart 3D printer is very simple with provided instruction manuals. The new 2-in-1-out switchable hotend is amazing and let you do blended way of printing.
One thing that irritated me a lot were some bugs I encountered in the firmware but thanks to their tech support team for quick help.
Thanks 3D Printers Online Store for quick shipping. All the components were securely packed.
Excellent printer that really outperformed my expectations. I read everything I could for 6 months before taking the plunge. As a first time buyer of a 3d printer I was nervous about how easy it would be to get started, and I really didn't know what I didn't know. My research led me to either the Lulzbot mini (made 20 miles away from me in Colorado) or the Flashforge Creator Pro (made in China). I am technical, so I finally decided on the Flashforge unit as it was 1) cheaper, 2) had dual extruders, 3) had a larger print volume, 4) had a lot of positive reviews, and 5) had a wealth of user groups and online videos explaining how to use it and enhance it. The Lulzbot mini however has auto-level of the print bed (a big deal) and reviews indicated it was ready to print out of the box.
I have zero regrets regarding the Flashforge printer. Within an hour of opening the box (due to me being meticulous and careful) I was printing in both ABS and PLA successfully. One note is that I did purchase and install the Makersome glass/PET bed for the Falshforge Creator Pro. I have had very few failed prints, and those I did have were all user error. I highly recommend this printer. I like it so much I am buying another to donate to my kid's high school for their 3d printer club.
Regarding the Flashforge customer support (Mr Tang):
Wow! I have to say that Flashforge has best customer support I have ever experienced. Being a newbie to 3D printing, and wanting the latest updates from Flashforge, I had a lot of concerns and questions. Tang was not only responsive (quick responses), the responses were detailed and accompanied by images and great descriptions. Tang was able to ship me the Active Cooling components (at no cost, and 2 day express from China) and show me how to get it installed rather than return my unit to Flashforge and try to get a current model.
Excellent 3D printer, Excellent support from Flashforge (Tang), and I highly recommend this 3d printer!
Received the Flsun 3D DIY Kit within stipulated time frame! It was very simple and convenient to assemble using written instruction and image guidance.
But, it took pretty more time than expected and stated. I like its delta design and aluminum structure owing to which it is durable as well as stable. I like it most for its free auto leveling upgrade.
The thing that bothered me was spotty LCD which was although replaced by customer service team but took almost 20 days.
Amazing printer with Durable Construction!
An exceptional 3D printer that had greatly facilitated me in my architecture projects! Now, I can easily carve vivid designs with ease and brilliant color retention.
Formbot T Rex is very stable and delivers great precision prints with extreme accuracy. You can even create big designs with the Formbot Engraver. Its super magnetic base let you switch between extruder kits easily and swiftly.
I was able to assemble this printer with provided manual instructions within almost 1 hour. It is a highly recommended 3D printer by Formbot.
My previous printer was as good as Afinibot. The only problem was that I had to switch the nozzles repeatedly! But with this printer, I am relaxed! It has PTFE tube that does not allow jamming. The print quality is amazing.
Initially, my extruder filament was not making good bond with the platform, then I calibrated its Z axis and the problem was resolved. Kudos to quick customer service! And of course 4-stars!
I got this 3D printing kit as a gift from my kids on my 45th birthday. They know that their daddy is a creative person and loves to experiment with new technology.
I really liked the durable and light built of this printer. I printed with a variety of materials including ABS, PLA, PVA, wood, Nylon, etc. Most of the prints were fine, had a smooth surface and precise in shape and size.
The printing speed is also impressive. No noise while printing. No power supply issues.
This is my first 3d printer and I'm still putting it together but so far no real complaints; just ensure to read a few steps ahead as well as it can sometimes help put things together a bit easier. All in all a good printer.
<p>P.S. If you want the auto-levelling, ensure that you select it in the options list.</p>
I had bought this laser 3D printer for my daughter’s school projects a few months ago. Earlier, she used to outsource her 3D prints which was quite expensive and was just okay in quality. But, after using this Creality Pro Laser printer, my daughter’s presentations are coming out great! The amazing prints were good replications of her designs.
The laser engraving feature along with 2-in-1 switchable print heads are pretty impressive! It supports MK10 extruder with multiple types of printing materials. It is pretty light weight that makes it more convenient in using it anywhere.
Only 5 minutes were utilized in the installation and was very easy to assemble by reading its ‘user manual’. It is a good purchase!
The Prusa i3 is without doubt an excellent printer with great print quality. I am very much impressed with MK8 extruder and its compatibility with software like slic3r and Repetier host. The printer is capable of giving n-number of prints perfectly. I got all the prints without any flaws.
It is a great kit but hard to assemble. It is not a fault of the printer but the manual with this printer I got was difficult to follow. Took lots of time to assemble accurately!
I bought a Max FDM 3D printer 6 months ago. It started nicely and delivered fine prints. But after 10 days it started troubling. I had contacted tech support, they arrived and removed clogged filament due to which printer got jammed. Then it started working well again.
But, my struggling with this printer didn’t last here. Now, this time, it was more annoying that within only 2 months, the printer needed to upgrade. The software was not supporting any filament to print. Due to which the extruder stuck and the nozzle would not move. Again, I had to call technical support for the service; they provided me all the instructions and services related to the same.
Now, it’s finally starting to deliver wonderful prints without any hassle. I am hoping for no more troubles ahead. Overall, it is a good printer for precise print quality.
Suggestion: Crosscheck all the software is upgraded and updated before you buy.
I ordered this printer because I wanted to impress my client with high resolution prints. The printer was delivered on time and was packed properly too.
When I started assembling the printer I found out that some parts were damaged. I contacted the customer service and they delivered the replacement parts almost after 20 days. I assembled the printer and was after so much of hard work when I finally started using this printer I was so upset with the poor quality prints.
The quality is so poor that I cannot present them to my clients. I am just stuck with this printer and I have no idea what to do next.
I am really impressed with my purchase. I am using it from last 3 months and till now I haven’t encountered any issue. Technologically updated, Geeetech Prusa i3 supports multiple filaments such as Flexible PLA /PLA/ ABS/WOOD.
Prusa i3 has made my work easier and I am continuously shooting up in my business chart, also my clients are admiring me a lot. Its stand- alone functionality is another distinct feature why I love Geeetech 3D printer.
Electron 3D - Sixth Generation Prusa i3 is not a bad purchase at such an economic price. I received it fast and didn’t face any problem in devising it although some small details were not mentioned. It delivers a relatively good print quality than expected with some tuning. Sixth Generation Prusa i3 has a sturdy flexible material along with a good build size
Some of the problems that bothered a lot to me are:
Thin power supply wires due to which big currents cannot be handled as it gets hot easily.
Due to concentrated vibrations the screws holding Y-axis plate loose up easily and I had to tighten it up with glue.
Afinia has made an awesome product. Make magazine was right when they said best "out of the box" experience. I was making beautiful parts with it in no time. If I could give it 6 stars I would, particularly in light of my experience with other machines - Read on....
I owned a Makerbot Replicator 2 for several months before returning it. Many issues, many bad prints, many broken things. I would strongly recommend avoiding it.
Bought a replicator 1 dual extruder thinking that I was experiencing startup issues with the new rep 2. It arrived with a broken thermocouple that rendered it inoperable - once this was fixed (worked around) the extruder would not extrude. Returned it, too. My experience with makerbot was lousy, I think the engineering on the machines (I am a mechanical engineer) is pretty bad - I mean, thoughtlessly, inexcusably bad in some cases. Unless they change their ways, all the private equity in the world won't save them, not with better products out there. Don't believe me? Look at the discussion boards for Makerbot, look at all the problems and work-arounds and user-submitted fixes. I couldn't find the equivalent for the Afinia, and now I know why. Because the thing just works.
My strong recommendation is to purchase a piece of borosilicate glass to go on the build platform, I'm printing perfect models with no peeling and no raft. If you use the included perf-board, you are going to probably have problems with lifting (I did.) - But, this is the same with every FDM machine out there.
If you want a hobby, get another machine. If you want to make parts, get the Afinia. Case closed.
I just love its double guide-bar Z axis! This Creatbot 3D printer comes with a replaceable nozzle. I really needed that feature in my printer since I tend to lose or block my nozzles a lot with material. The design is simply awesome! I don’t have any issue with the price since it was all paid by my institution for my research work.
All in all, a wonderful printer to work on; works with almost all filament materials out there!
This closed box is creating heat creeps!
First of all, there is not much of a difference between Wiiboox One and Wiiboox One Mini!! You will only waste your 600 bucks like I did! When I use PLA, there is lots of melted plastic that jams my hot end.
And on using ABS, the quality of prints is not satisfactory. I'm printing PLA at 185 with my bed set to 65 currently.
I will try changing the Z-height. Thankfully, this printer re-calibrates automatically so that part won’t be a trouble.
The company has provided only 3 months nozzle guarantee and I have already started facing problems with nozzle getting jammed!
After working on my friend’s Printrbot Play, I was apprehensive about choosing this ‘affordable’ printer. But right after using it for the first time, I was happy with my decision.
It is easy to install and use! The plus point is that it offers auto-leveling and auto-calibration. As a hobbyist, I absolutely loved using this printer and would recommend this printer to all my friends.
With just 12V working voltage, covered nozzle, Afinibot Creality Mini is a smart utility-filled creation. I am using it from last few months and its functionality is just amazing. Its V slot ensures low noise printing along with high accuracy. Its pluggable LCD control screen allows you to adjust nozzle temperature and printing speed. The easy to use Afinibot printer is compatible with ABS, PLA and HIPS. Highly recommended!
I love Afinibot Creality Mini for:
High speed and precision
Afinibot Creality Mini has not met my expectations!
Even though, it offers an average printing quality, it does not support ABS plastic and chokes a lot. I have started missing my old printer already. Since, the nature of my work demands travelling; it is a good option to choose because of its light weight. The LCD screen and motherboard is pluggable and is easy to assemble.
All in all, I like this 3D printer and appreciate their customer service.
