If you purchase this, you will absolutely want to install a MOSFET board [letsprint3d.net] -- sooner, rather than later -- due to the potential for the hotbed connectors to burn up. That aside, this a fantastic printer, and one of the most popular units out there today.

A fantastic resource for owners (new and old) can be found here [3dprinterwiki.info]. (The Wanhao Duplicator i3 and the Monoprice Maker Select are the exact same printer).

Debating about this one or the refurb mini on the FP.

Any insight as to why you went with this one?

Thanks

How big are the items you want to print? If they can fit onto the mini, then there is no reason to get this. Once fitted with better cooling, both these machines will perform about the same.

Note that if you aren't designing your own stuff, then the size of the mini gets pretty limiting pretty quick. A lot of the stuff on thingiverse is geared towards bigger printers so you'll have to chop and glue to print "bigger" things on the mini.

If you need to print big stuff though, why not get a Troxy X5S. $285, you can get it for $264 if you use a coupon, and has a much bigger 330x330x400mm print volume.

Well after looking at the Troxy X5S that ghostofposterpast just posted, I might need to review the options before leaping. Just need to be able to print larger items such as an extruder for my broken printer. And a poster in the other thread indicated the print quality on these is very good compared to old RepRaps.

ghostofposterpast and valve5 - thanks for the feedback.

I think I am going to go with the Maker Select as I just saw an assembly video for the Troxy. Does not look too complicated, but the Maker Select is only 6 screws.

Also, thanks for the insight into most of the items on thingiverse require the larger printer, I believe that is what this will be primarily used for.

The Tronxy X5S is a better design since it's CoreXY instead of i3. But, it's definitely not a beginner printer. People move up to CoreXY after cutting their teeth on a i3.

But... you can get a large format printer like the CR-10 or Tornado for not much more than this printer. They are i3 designs as well and just as easy to put together as the maker select. Think of them as scaled up maker selects. They have 300x300x400mm build volumes. You can pretty much get them all the time in the $330 or so range. The CR-10 was $300 a couple of days back.

Where would I find that deal, please? I found the printer at gearbest, but no coupon there.

Thank you!

I have this printer. It's a great beginner printer. I've printed a lot of stuff and learned a whole lot about 3d printing using it. I highly recommend it if you're just starting out.

Dude, between this for $255 or a CR-10 for $300? Get the CR-10. That's a no brainer.

Look at the reviews on youtube. Almost all of them will have a referral code AKA "coupon". That's why they post the reviews, to pimp their referral codes. I think one of the reviews even says $264 in the title.
