Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

Built upon the design of the Maker Select 3D Printer, the Maker Select Plus 3D Printer now features a unified design with an integrated control box and a smaller footprint. Like the previous models, the Maker Select Plus+ 3D Printer features a large 7.9" x 7.9" x 7.1" build area, but with a 50% faster print speed. The LCD menu system has been upgraded to a large 3.25" touch screen system, with a simpler and easier to use design with on-the-fly print tuning options. The improved Anti-Jam MK10 extruder features a 0.4mm nozzle diameter and 100 micron layer resolution, allowing you to create smooth, highquality prints.

I have this one. It's a really good printer for the money if you're willing to put in the time.
Cons- the boards extremely hard to level and I had to get a better board under the print surface. If you place this on a low table the screen is hard to see as it's not angled up. So try keeping it eye level.

Have you seen the angled screen mount you can print? I keep meaning to do it, but am too lazy and have mine on a relatively high table anyway.

I have I've also been to lazy to make the mount. Also it's not something who isn't willing to do modifications and unscrew/mess with the electrical components such as the screen

None, but some make it wonderful: Locknut bed thumbscrews, I like a stiffer y carriage, a PEI sheet is much nicer than the buildtak. I upgraded to an all metal hotend, but really it's 4 bolts in the gantry and ready to go.

Cr10 is literally putting the bar on the bed frame and turning allen screws, also I had both two months ago, the mini got sent back. Too small of a space on the mini and best bed plate for the cr-10 is a mirror tile I got at lowes that is 12 inch by 12 inch. Some aqua net and my prints have been stellar. Been making dice towers from thingiverse with foldable drawbridge trays to catch the dice with it for Christmas gifts for some dnd friends and so far it's been a champ printing them. Solid facebook and reddit groups also as everyone has to learn the machines and software. After a week I was making full plate builds. It's pretty forgiving and you'll have the same learning curve on both machines. Also the tools the cr10 comes with are must haves, it comes with a half roll of filament that you can use to actually print test code, the mini gives you a bag that will finish half a cat. Snips, extra tubes nozzels, metal scrapper, and 8 gig micro sd card with usb, mini has a tiny micro sd with no usb stick attachment. Overall just much better first 3d printer experience. After you get your upgrades printed for the cr10 machine like better bed level wheels and tension relief for the bed heating wires it j.ust works. Oh yeah and the leveling wheels on the cr10 are under the bed, so easy to use, the mini requires you to you an allen wrench from the top of the aluminum bed tray so you constantly have to take off and replace glass unless you can get a special glass cut with the edges of the corners snipped off to form an even smaller octahedron. pita, trust me. Both print roughly the same but I got worse layering on the mini. The mini is a nice toy but at this price point the cr10 blows it away in ease, tools, and usability.
well, this isn't the mini, so.... you are literally comparing the CR10 to a different printer.

This is as much of a kit as the CR10 is. Both require about the same amount of set up.

At $300 I would get a CR10/Tevo Tornado. It's time that this printer dropped to $200.

At the same price point and having experienced both I can say I'm helping with others buyers remorse at this point honestly. I'd only get the mini really if I didn't have a spare room to house a cr-10, eh maybe if it was 200 instead but at 300 I feel like a heads up is in order.
THis is the plus,how the CR10 is better than the mini doesn't help anyone looking at this deal, as far as the plus, the only thing it's got going is a bigger build volume, and I have read the CR10's rails are for some reason not as nice as belts, but I don't know about that.
