    Join the 3D printing revolution with this Dual Extrusion 3D Printer from Monoprice!

    3D printing is the hot ticket now, primarily because it allows you to cheaply produce a design prototype prior to manufacture and, as can be seen from news reports, even make finished, usable products.

    This 3D printer features a dual extrusion head, which allows for two color print jobs. It can use 1.75mm ABS, PLA, and PVA filaments and supports layer thicknesses from 0.1 ~ 0.5 mm. The extruder can be heated to 250°C and the metal heating plate can be heated to 120°C. It prints at a rate of 24cc per hour.

    The printer comes with two 1kg reels of PLA filament.

    Awesome first printer

    • Anonymous,

    Pros: Its hard to say which comes first Price or Ease of use.
    Without calibration the unit will produce very acceptable results out of the box.
    Good solid machine. Highly recommend this.

    Cons: Documentation could be better.
    No Mac software on SD card.
    Left and right extruder test files take way to long to print due to unnecessary hight of the design.

    Opening the box everything is there in order you need. Instructions right on the top.

    It was easy to unpack and complete the small amount of assembly required. I leveled the build plate and then repeated the process twice more, each time it got closer to perfect. Next was the feeding of the extruders using the supplied PLA spools. Again care and following the instructions made the task very easy.

    At this point the printer was ready and all that was needed was to preheat the build platform and one of the extruders then wait. After the preheat I wanted to test the unit so I inserted the suppled SD card and selected the test file for the preheated extruder. Watching in amazement as the unit sprang into action going back and forth on the build plate depositing a thin perfectly proportioned white line of plastic !

    1:30hrs later I had a fully printed test cylinder that sat on a small square which in turn sat on a cross hatched raft that ensures good adhesion to the heated build platform. My first print and I was grinning from ear to ear !!

    So after 20 min of assembly and some other careful prep this unit performed flawless.

    The big takeaways here are to take your time, make several passes to ensure its build plate is level and finally always preheat the extruder (s) along with the build platform. My next task is to calibrate the filament and then make additional test prints that take less time.

    Buy one you will love it!!!

    Great Printer for the price

    This was my first foray into 3d printing, I came directly to Monoprice because I knew they had several 3d printers, I purchased this one so that I could do dual extrusion. While I waited for it to be shipped (arrived very quickly) I read up online about the nightmares one can have using different printers and common solutions.

    I purchased Simplify3d and I highly recommend it for people new to 3d printing, it let me focus more on making the models and setting up the printer than trying to deal with the archaic ReplicatorG software. Simplify3d has definitely been worth the reduced headache as the configured profile is pretty much spot on.

    I have been using several different rolls of monoprice filament and they all seem to extrude well around 210 degrees. I have no issues with getting prints to stick (quite the opposite getting them removed can be a pain.) I do not have anything to compare this printer to but I am very happy with the quality an accuracy. I am printing everything from small writing on poker chip sized coins, to giant structures filling the print area.

    Having Fun with My First 3D Printer

    Pros: Great dual extrusion printer for the price

    Cons: No auto-leveling bed
    Included software (ReplicatorG) isn't the best but getting it to work with Cura is easy
    Converting GCODE to X3G is required to print from an SD Card.

    I'm completely new to 3D printing and I'm having lots of fun with this printer. It arrived in great condition, setup was easy, and worked right out of the box. Also, I didn't find the manual as awful as everyone seems to the think. The important information is in there (setup and printer settings for use with the software).

    After some experimentation, I got the printer to work with Cura (a better and MUCH faster slicing program). Use the included ReplicatorG program to generate some GCODE. Then use a text editor to copy the start and end sections from that GCODE and replace the start and end sections in Cura on the "Start/End-GCode" tab. Load an STL file in Cura and select save GCODE. Finally you have to convert the GCODE to X3G for the printer. Open ReplicatorG and drop in the GCODE file. Click the "Build to file for use with SD card" button in the toolbar. Copy the resulting X3G file to the SD card and plug it in the printer. Print it!

    Using Cura was the only way I could get dual extrusion prints to work.

    Monoprice Dual Extruder 3D Printer

    • Dave,
    •  ,  
    • 1/15/2016 12:15:54 PM

    Pros: Price
    Dual Extruder
    Compatibility
    Fast Ship (next day for me)
    Packed Well

    Cons: SD Card Location
    Wish it had acrylic hood and doors like FF but you can fab something up without too much effort.

    I am brand new to 3d printing and I researched for about two weeks before pulling the trigger. I was looking at the FF Creator Pro. The Monoprice is almost identical except for the firmware version and lack of acrylic doors/hood.

    Was printing within 30 minutes with the included PLA. Here are my immediate tips for a successful print with this printer.

    1) Leveling the bed is critical - take your time. Using a sheet of paper - the tip of extruder and bed should provide a slight friction on the paper.
    2) if your leveling screw spins when you turn the wingnut, then press down on the bed to release tension and the wingnut will turn with out the screw turning. FINE ADJUSTMENTS FOLKS! This shouldn't be a major adjustment after the initial tuning.
    3) Buy Simplify3D SW to slice with. Yes it is $150 but just buy it ... makes your life so much easier. Don't bother with included SW.
    4) Only print from SD card. In fact, Buy the Toshiba Flashair Wireless SD Card and setup for uploading over WIFI. The card is about $25 and it will prevent you from having to move the SD card to copy on new models to print. There are web articles on how to do this. Once you set it up ... you type FLASHAIR/UPLOAD.CGI from your browser and then you 'upload' your model(s) to printer. Now the location of the SD card in this printer is a non-issue.
    5) Put 3M blue painter tape on the build table. The included Kapton tape is "so so" and I had a lot of problems with the built losing grip and then messing up the print. I put new blue tape on for every print unless I printed something very small.
    6) Re-level of print bed after every 5 prints just to make sure it doesn't drift out of alignment
    7) Tweak and tune with the settings inside Simplify3D. The default settings for Monoprice 3D printer inside the software are pretty much spot on. Learn this software and how to manipulate your models for best outcomes while printing... rotating, scaling, using 'supports', using 'rafts', adjusting layer height, adjusting infill density, changing extruder between left and right, etc. etc.

    Comparable quality, excellent price

    • Cat,

    Pros: Good price, design is such that anything can be replaced and many upgrades are available. Easy to start if you've done a little prior reading and printing. Lots of fun to play with!

    Cons: Nuts that secure leveling screws in print bed were loose, and the screw spun when attempting to tighten or loosen the leveling wingnut. As a result, I had to halfway remove the Kapton tape to access the head of the screw JUST to level the print bed before I could even test print. To add insult to injury, they didn't include the correct hex wrench for the screws in the bed. Eventually I got it off, tightened it all up, and replaced the Kapton tape to the best of my ability. That was a pain.

    No acrylic hood or door for high temp ABS printing, one LED was out on a button.

    As of Dec 2015, this is the frame of a Creator X with the internal workings of a Creator Pro. It has the AT2560 processor and can accept an updated version of Sailfish (running ReplicatorG-Sailfish it identifies the motherboard firmware as 7.2). It has a 350W power supply. Does not appear to have the voltage switch referred to in some clone manuals.

    I recommend it, be prepared to tinker!
