    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.

    First Impressions Are Great Time Will Tell

    I've had the printer for a little over 24 hours. Setup took about 20 minutes and after the first test print I jumped right in to printing items from Thingiverse. So far everything is working great. For the Thiniverse items I am using Simplify3D as my slicer.

    Finally, an affordable 3D printer that works!

    After a few cheap "user friendly" printers that print once and explode... This printer just works (out of the box).

    Great printer, software is lacking.

    Pros: Great quality for the price.

    Cons: Software is difficult to manage sometimes.

    The printer was great once we got the bed leveled out. It took running the leveling program a couple of times. I like the versatility of ABS, PLA, and dissolvable filaments. The Replicator G software that comes with it is not very good. If you can use another program I would suggest it.

    Not QUITE There Yet

    Pros: Complete out of the box
    Dual Extrusion

    Cons: Poor software
    Nonexistent documentation
    Bed leveling script poorly written
    Extruders not properly set

    I purchased this printer after a considerable amount of research on printers in the sub-thousand-dollar range, with respect to feature set and capabilities. The feature set looked most impressive, dual extrusion, a heated build plate, a decent build volume, and fully assembled for less than a thousand dollars? Hard to believe!

    My first impression was quite good, the build quality of the unit is quite respectable for a Chinese import machine. The lead screw is of good quality, the fit and finish are entirely acceptable, and the bed taping was well-placed and bubble free. What little assembly was required went quickly and exactly per the instructions. The built-in menus have a fair bit of lag and can be a tad hard to navigate, finding the right command can be a bit challenging, but they work just fine. Up to this point, I was entirely pleased with the printer! Bed leveling was amazingly challenging, unfortunately, given that the bed leveling script is written for a four-screw-on-corners bed leveling system, and this printer has a three-screw triangle system. Following the directions on screen will NOT level the bed for you properly. You will need to jog the printer around to the corners and adjust until you have it level yourself. More on this later.

    Unfortunately, my troubles started as soon as I plugged it into my computer. Windows 10 did not want to correctly identify the device, drivers would not install properly, and the COM port would not connect to the printing software most of the time. After trying several programs and a number of suggested solutions, I was finally able to get Matter Control to connect to the printer. Victory! … Not quite. My first print attempt used standard settings for PLA, using white filament with just the right extruder for simplicity. 70C for the bed, and 190C for the extruder. I selected a skirt (as I commonly do, this isn’t my first 3D printing experience), just to make sure the nozzle was clear, and sent the print. The right extruder laid down the skirt just as it was supposed to… then the left, unheated nozzle swept over the skirt, tore it off the bed, and dumped it into the print. The two nozzles weren’t coplanar! I spent a bit of time thinking on it, and just decided to heat the left nozzle as well from Matter Control, so hopefully it would flow any material it touched instead of tearing it off the bed. This was moderately successful, and I was able to get the test object (a 1.5x1.5x.5” cube with 10% hexagonal infill) to print. Unfortunately, the corners didn’t stick, so it ended up as a warped, out-of-shape mess. Cooled the bed and went to blue painter’s tape for my surface with a cold bed and a 200C extruder. That one printed acceptably. Great, problem solved! I’ll try a test with both extruders! No dice. Ever. I tried about a dozen different attempts at dual extruding, and was never even vaguely successful. I could get it to print with either extruder, but never both at once. It would raft with one extruder, as ordered… then simply not extrude anything at all from the other side as it continued printing up into the air. Or it would print the entire object with one material regardless of what it was supposed to be using. Or it’d skip rafting with one material, just moving the head around, then it would try to start extruding with the other nozzle well into the air and build a pile of plastic brillo.

    After several days of printing a 95+% failure rate, and becoming amazingly frustrated with the total lack of supporting material, I packed the entire thing up and sent it back to Monoprice. Physically, I think the printer is just fine. On the electronics-and-software side, it is so lacking as to be unusable as far as I can tell. Perhaps someone who is very experienced troubleshooting driver issues and dealing with the Chinse RAMPS variant this unit uses could get it working properly, but I was not able to. I will most likely be building a RAMBO-based printer myself in a few weeks, working with a dedicated place that can provide support to get it running if I need it.

    Monoprice has been great through the entire thing, they gave me no trouble with the RMA at all, certainly no smear on them here! Just a printer that didn’t live up to the promise it held. Oh well, back to the drawing board!

    So far, I'm quite impressed!

    Pros: Good print quality
    Price
    One of many clones (spare parts and possibly software updates available).

    Cons: Support
    Community
    Software packages

    Not the smoothest experience out of the box, but for this price I think you get quite a lot. You'll need to be a tiny bit of a tinkerer to enjoy this (that's why you're getting a 3d printer in the first place right ?)
    Once everything is set up the print quality is quite good.

    I assumed there was nothing specific about the Monoprice and it was just a rebranded Flashforge Creator Pro with Atmega2560. So I used these information to update the firmware out of the box to the latest sailfish : http://www.sailfishfirmware.com/
    So far no issue with that.
