Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on August 21, 2018
Lets start off with the downsides. If you are looking for something you unbox, press one button and have perfectly printed objects, this isn't it. Most 3d printing takes some trial and error and takes some tweaking to get just right. If you have some patience this can be a fantastic printer.

If this is your first printer expect to take anywhere from 1-4 hours putting it together and getting it flat and square. This will most likely involve loosening and tightening bolts that were already put together. The printer should lay flat, and mine didn't out of the box.

You'll also need to spend some time getting the slicer settings just right. Go on thingiverse and download some test and calibration stls and work on that.

I got a glass bed right off the bat and I'm so glad I did. You can get great prints with the regular print bed, but if the base is warped at all then you'll spend a lot of time dealing with that instead of printing. After a week I have mine to about 90%. It prints great, but I'm having some extrusion problems.

Also make sure you switch the voltage to 115 if you're in North America BEFORE turning it on. It looks like it comes from the factory switched to 230 even if it comes with a US style plug. I didn't have an issue, but I've heard people who missed this step and ruined their machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a "take out of the box ready to print" printer, but for the money, its unbeatable
