I have usefull prototype parts. See my 6 month review at the bottom.Monday I received my long awaited printer. I thought I would wait a couple of days until I had some experience and then post my thoughts. My first impressions were quite good. The unit looks good, well built with all wiring cleanly aligned and secured. My unit would not feed the filament at first so I sent an email to support and received a phone call within an hour, not many companies will do that. The support rep Charles and I went through a process of trying some things and finally found the problem with the extrusion head had been knocked off center during shipping. Once that was snapped back into place all worked as it should. My first print (white ABS filament comes with the printer) was their demo part, a miniature bird bath. It came out excellent. I then tried one of my SolidWorks parts saved in STL format and the printed parts came out terrible. Again, I emailed XYZ and received a prompt reply back from Charles to try and…

Good, not great, but better than you might think Let’s be clear, buying a 3D printer for $500 is exactly what you think it is. Any other system that is shipped as a complete unit is triple this cost to get high quality results. It’s unfair to slam the makers of this product if you’re looking for high quality at a low price point. However, if you are patient, you can tune this machine to be great. If you wanted a 3D printer, hopefully you’re the advanced DIY type and don’t mind getting creative.Our system:Out of the box we had a non-functional LCD screen like many others, and turning the unit on did nothing but have the white LED lights turn on and the X-axis motor homed. That’s it. There was filament residue around the nozzle which seemed like it was a used model, or it was tested prior to shipping (but wouldn’t it work out of the box if it were thoroughly tested?) A quick tour of the system’s wiring found the Y-axis wiring harness had gotten loose and fallen out. No problem, reattaching the wiring harness had the…

Pretty slick machine….over 100 hours now no issues Got mine yesterday from Amazon… So far pretty happy with it. Easy to setup was printing a sample in 20 minutes. It’s a little slower than a Makerbot which I have owned but for $500 it cannot be beat. Make sure when loading your cartridge to hold down on it so it’s seated tightly before putting the hold down clip back in I didn’t it was telling me no cartridge was loaded holding it down tightly and putting the clip back in fixed the issue.A few days on it now still working like a champ. Loading new cartridges can be tricky had it tell me cartridge not load a few times I just make sure I pull the cartridge tight to the front of the unit on my machine before putting the cartridge clip back in works every time. I also found that I need to put the glue stick material down where the print head places the first string of the plastic to the right when flushing the tip for printing if I did not do that it would sometimes come loose and stick to the head and muck up the print job…
