    Does the Plus print 50% faster than the V2 on all quality settings, or does the faster print speed just mean it can print faster at the lowest quality settings?

    Monoprice Maker Select Plus 3D Printer
    Monoprice Maker Select Plus 3D Printer
    Monoprice Maker Select 3D Printer v2
    Monoprice Maker Select 3D Printer v2
    BEST ANSWER: Its capable of faster speeds due to its design. I would not say 2x faster consistently as it really depends on what you are trying to print and how the machine is actually configured.
    I just ordered the 13860 Maker Select 3D Printer v2 for my grandson, and it has not arrived yet. how does this new one 'Maker Select Plus 3D Printer compare to it please?
    A shopper on Dec 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The are almost the same, the biggest difference is they moved some of the components under the print bed that used to sit in the external enclosure. So it takes up slightly less desk space. The other change is an newer print head, I believe this is what allows for faster speeds (150mm/s vs 100mm/s).
    I have this printer, but can't find the Cura download for mac. Could you please provide it?
    New User U on Apr 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we would not have it available for download on our site. However, it is available for free on the website of the manufacturer of Cura "Ultimaker". It can be found in the products section under software. I hope this helps.

    Should you require additional assistance, please reach out to our technical support team with a detailed question via any of the methods available here:

    I just purchased this printer and opened up the lower cover. Bed leveling in a royal pain. I see that there is a 3 pin connector for a Z-probe. Is this for use with an inductive probe? Anyone know the pinout for this on the board? Is the firmware on this board capable of modifying the configuration.h file to turn on bed auto leveling feature of Marlin?
    New User U on Apr 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I added these to the bed springs and it take just a couple of minutes a most to level now.

    A number of early reviews of the Maker Select Plus complained about noisy/sticky/quickly worn linear bearings on the y-platform. Reviewers believed this can be solved by installing longer/higher quality bearings on the y-platform. Has this problem been addressed in the current product on sale?
    Bernardus S on Feb 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Ive found the bearings arent that noisy if you actually clean and lube the rails. It still uses the short bearings but I don't have the noise issue since I began regularly lubing the rails.
    when I start Cura, it asks what printer I have. How do I tell it _THIS_ printer when it isn't in the list?
    William O on Dec 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: If you are using a Mac, you have to download the current version of Cura from the original (Ultimaker) site. The version of Cura on the SD memory card that came with the printer is only for Windows. The version of Cura from the original site does not know about this Monoprice printer. (Also the USB connection does not work.)
    Does this printer need the new Hotend recommended by others on the previous version?
    William O on Dec 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Actually the MP Select Plus has the MK10 nozzle and the Ultimate has the MK11 extruder. The stock extruder on this system is fine for ABS and PLA. If you are going to consistently print other materials above 230C I recommend getting the Micro Swiss all metal hot end upgrade.
    The menu system seems to have far fewer options than the Maker Select. For instance, how do you set acceleration parameters? Also, the screen randomly switches to Chinese instead of English. Additionally, there are many misspelled words in the menu. Are there any firmware updates? Thanks
    Patrick M on Apr 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You can change the acceleration and jerk settings by connecting it to a computer and running the Repetier software. Or (as I did), though Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi. I just followed some instructions I found online.

    My screen also switched to Chinese occasionally (and amusingly, changed to the Wanhao logo). I asked MP about it and they said it was probably corrupted firmware and sent me out a new board. It has since stopped doing it, so I haven't switched it out, but I probably will next time I have it open. You might want to shoot them an email.

    Not sure about firmware. I just consider the misspellings part of its charm. :)
    I see that this printer has been released over 15 months ago. I'm assuming that a new version is in the works... Is there a way to know when the next revision will be available?

    Where can I download the Cura software that is pre-configured for this printer? The directions say to come here for the download, but I do not see it anywhere.
    A shopper on Dec 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: From what I understand, the software is no longer downloadable from Monoprice. The windows version of Cura is however present on the SD card that came with your printer.
    Can this printer print the copper or silver filament?
    New User U on Feb 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've been printing with the Sainsmart copper and aluminum filaments recently. They just print at normal PLA temps and work great in the Plus. They're really cool filaments to play with and can be polished and whatnot like the real thing.
    How do I print over USB instead of SD card?
    A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You need specific software. Simplify3D can do it and there are other (free) options, but I'd suggest setting up Octoprint (preferably on a Raspberry Pi). It not only allows you to print from USB, but also gives you full control and monitoring of the printer. The downside of printing from USB is the computer needs to be on during the entire print or the print will fail. So, if you're printing from a Windows computer, automatic updates can restart your computer and kill your print. A Raspberry Pi eliminates this problem (though you still need an SD card and reader to get the Raspberry Pi set up)
    What is the speed difference between Maker Select
    3D Printer
    Maker Select and
    Plus 3D Printer?
    A shopper on Dec 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: on the maker select plus 3d printer in one place it says Print Speed 150 mm/sec and the specs says Print Speed10 - 70 mm/sec
    one place it says 7.9" x 7.9" x 7.1"(200 x 200 x 180 mm) then it says 7.9" x 7.9" x 7.0"(200 x 200 x 180 mm)
    Where is the Cura download link? I can't find it as directed in the manual that came with the printer. I googled it but the Cura software on the Ultimaker website does not have I3/Plus as a printer option when it's downloaded.
    Jason C on Dec 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The software package which includes CURA can be downloaded here:


    CURA can also be downloaded directly from the Ultimaker website, we recommend downloading version 15.04.6 as it contains the necessary drivers for the printer.

    In regards to adding the machine to CURA, please follow the instructions listed in the manual. If you continue to have issues, please feel free to contact us at tech@monoprice.com with a detailed summary of the issue you are experiencing and our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you

    Where can I get a copy of the Firmware used in this printer? Wanted to keep a copy as backup, just in case.
    Sal N on Feb 14, 2018
    Do the recently shipped versions of the Maker Select Plus have the thumbscrews instead of wingnuts?
    New User U on Dec 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Plus model includes thumbscrews and also fiber washers
    Does this printer come with the MK10 or MK11 extruder? i see some people mentioned the MK11. even though the specs mention MK10.
    Merav A on Mar 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This printer will indeed come with a MK10 extruder.
    I just got one of these put together and the instruction manual says that there is a customized Cura available for download through this page. I'm not seeing it. Is it no longer listed here?
    Luke B on Feb 19, 2018
    Is there an updated version of the Product Manual Available for the Maker Select Plus 3d Printer (#15711)? The click path for the menu steps in the included manual and the online manual do not match the options available on the printer itself.
    Ryan K on Jan 28, 2018
    filament does not adhere to base when printing. What setting in cura needed?+ Printing begins close to front edge of base, not center. What setting is needed in Cura?
    Kenneth W on Jan 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If filament does not adhere to base, the temperature of the base is not correct for the type of filament or the ambient temperature of the room is to cold. This is if the temperature probe is reading correctly. Use an infrared temperature sensor/gun to see what the temperature actually is. You can purchase one for less than $20.
    Printing at front base: Y axis not zeroed. Download IIICURA program from Cura. Suggest no antivirus programs running other than Windows Defender. There can be many other variables causing the problem. Hope this helps.
    Is there an online manual for this? im looking for the PDF version like the other models offered.
    A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The link to the PDF is on this page, right above the Q&A section.

    Unable to connect via USB. Where are the drivers for the printer? My computer is not recognizing it.
    A shopper on Jun 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have had a similar problem to find the drivers on my laptop for the USB 3.0 ports were not backwards compatible for this unit as it may not work for USB3.0 ports or above try using a usb 2.0 or 2.1 port to see if that fixes your problem.
    I'm curious how this printer can be justified as being able to print ABS filament when it says in the specs that the bed can't even reach 100C...?
    Christopher M C on Apr 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have been able to find ABS filament that prints at lower temperature settings. You could try one of those. Once Monoprice addresses my printer's physical memory issues, I will be trying that filament myself. The filament I found on Amazon requires 90C bed, 250C extruder temps.. yes, the upper end of this printer's range, but it should work.
    Should I use updates to firmware offered to the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus?
    New User U on Jul 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You can install it but if you fail there is no fallback posltion. The original firmware is not available.
    I see this printer supports PET filaments; does that include the variations such as PETT or PETG?
    A shopper on Mar 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Can confirm it works with PETG, you'll just have to either configure the settings for it yourself or look online for a pre-built configuration for the material depending on what software you use.
    In the chart that compares the other printers, it says the max speed is 150mm/s, but on the specs, it says max print speed is 70mm/s. Which one is it, and how fast does it actually print? Thanks!
    Quin D on May 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I only got decent quality at 50mm/s or lower print speeds. The motors are severely underspec'd so they whine like banshees.
    why at the end of my prints, do the printer bury the nozzle into my project, melting and destroying it?
    A shopper on Apr 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: That has everything to do with the GCODE being used, not the printer. Try using Repetier with default end code, you can still slice with Cura from within Repetier.... Here is Curas end code, which should also work,
    ;End GCode
    M104 S0 ;extruder heater off
    M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)
    G91 ;relative positioning
    G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure
    G1 Z+0.5 E-5 X-20 Y-20 F{travel_speed} ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more
    G28 X0 Y0
    G1 Z160 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head is out of the way
    M84 ;steppers off
    G90 ;absolute positioning
    Will this printer (Maker Select Plus Printer) run off of 220V or only off of 120V?
    A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It will run off both, there is a switch on the side of the power box

    Pretty good for a beginner, but instructions could use some work
    This is our very first 3D printer. I did exhaustive reviews before settling on this model for my son's Christmas present. We love it and I would give it 5 stars if there was better documentation. The manual says to go to the Monoprice website to download Cura, the slicer program needed to convert STL files to G-code files for printing. There are no more links on the website. I chatted online, and the tech gave us a link to Google docs with the software. However, this STILL is not right. Cura has to have the right driver installed for your printer. It turns out that the right software is on the memory card you get with the printer. But nothing anywhere says that. You don't know until you finally plug the card (with an adapter) into a PC and look at the files on the card. Because of this, we trashed the first print pad because the extruder head dug into the pad. Once we finally had the right software loaded, it worked fine. Another issue is leveling of the print bed. We had to crank all 4 corner screws all the way down to achieve the right distance from the extruder tip. There doesn't seem to be a way to reset the default home point (at least I haven't figured it out yet). It would be nice if we could raise the Home point a little bit so we're not at the far extreme end of the bed leveling screws. Finally, for PLA models, I've noticed better printing if I lay down blue painters tape on the print bed and I turn the bed temp up to 70 degrees C. It causes the raft to stick better and not "glob" up the extruded filament. Once the raft has laid down the filament that actually touches the print bed, I turn the temp back to down to 50 C while the model finishes. All in all though, this is a great printer. It just needs updated documenation and you have to be a little bit of an experimenter to get it just right, which is not uncalled for considering you're working with a complicated piece of computer-driven machinery. I liked it so much that I just bought the Ultimate model for myself so I wouldn't take time away from my son's use. It was his gift, after all :)

    Really good for the money
    This is my 1st 3D printer and I'm enjoying it. Is it perfect, no. Is it worth it? oh yes!

    Been waiting a while for 3D printing tech to evolve before making my 1st purchase and I have no regrets buying this printer

    The build volume is very good, it has a heated bed, the touchscreen works great.

    This printer is nicely refined over the previous Maker Select V2. some changes include:

    -All the electronics are now integrated on the bottom of the unit (vs a separate box) This helps with the overall stability, and makes the machine more compact
    -A ribbon cable replaces the cable chain previously used
    -Full size SD card vs Micro SD card
    -There is more, some things I'm forgetting and some I cannot verify right now. I believe the fan is bigger (40mm vs 30mm. The print speed is supposed to be faster, some bearings changes, ect

    There are many mods you can do to this printer. Some of which may void the warranty while others.. well I couldn't imagine being an issue

    Some of the things I've done to mine are: longer spool holder (for wide 2.2kg spools). A filament guide (just nice to have), and Z-braces. You can find all these items on thingiverse, or join one of the facebook support groups for more info.

    DOA on arrival [SOLVED]
    I just got my printer yesterday. After putting it together, plugging it in, there was no response. The screen would not light up, no indication of life whatsoever when I turned on the switch next to the IEC connector.

    I ended up removing the gantry from the base again, flipping the base over and removing the 5 allen head screws on the bottom to expose the electronics inside the base.

    I then used my multimeter to check that the IEC switch was operational, and that I was getting 120VAC to the power supply (I am in the US). I was. However, I was not getting 24VDC out of the power supply, and none of the LEDs were coming on.

    I noticed the power supply had a 100/200 volt slide switch on the side, but it was obscured by the bed drive belt. I could barely make out a '2' on the slide. After doing some google searches on that particular unit, I realized that the power supply was still set at 200V instead of 100V. After moving the power supply input voltage switch to 100V, I tried powering up the unit and everything came on as expected.

    I put it all back together. The printer seems to be working well, however I am still learning how to print without having the item peel up off of the base.

    The menu system is pretty easy to use, however I would have liked more information on what the menu items mean - they are translated rather poorly from some other language.

    The manual is pretty bad - and none of the "sample" prints listed in the manual are what was actually on the card included with the printer.

    Another thing to note - the sample PLA that was sent with the printer was completely unusable...it was broken into about 30-40 pieces.

    All in all, I think it's probably a good printer, I just wish MP would have spent a little more time on the menu system and the instruction manual. And verifying the power supply was compatible with the region in which they were shipping it to. I would not have expected many users to do what I did to get it to power up correctly. Most likely 9/10 people would have returned it in my opinion.

    Easy Setup....easy print
    Just got this yesterday.....set up and have actually done 3 prints already. I've been using TPU and it runs great!! I come from having 5 of the flashforge printers and this one by far is much better, easy to use.....Cura blows makerware away. Bed leveling is easy. Makes me want to sell my other printers and buy a few more of these.

    Must have had defective unit
    I spent a long time researching printers and wanted an easier experience than I have had in the past. I l know this machine has a good history (based on the maker select), so I was excited. Packaging was outstanding. My first issue was that upper frame and base did not line up properly. I had to raise the right side (albeit a very small amount) to get the screws in (not a big deal). The second issue was that I noticed the y - axis bearings were a bit crunchy. I greased the rods, and it improved. Everything looked great. Plugged in and manually lowered each corner of the bed by around 3 - 4 turns. I homed the three cartesian axes (looked great). My trouble began when I tried to setup z - offset. It homed z around 1/4 inch from the bed, I loosened the screw to the point that it fell off and it still was way off the nozzle. No panic. I checked x,y,z micro switches. The Z axis was tilted upwards (the y was also tilted non perpendicular to frame edge). Adjusted both z and y. Ran the z -offset and it was a hair better. I then looked at x - axis and measured level against table and machine base. Everything looked level, but I noticed the right side plastic z adjuster was high on lead screw rod. I lowered it, and the left (measured level). Re - ran z and it was much better. I then spend 3 - 4 hours chasing level around the bed. It mattered not what I did, z - offset would change around the bed with a single adjustment. I slept for 4 hours, went back and ran the z axis up the top of the frame and I noticed it went out of level by the time it reached the top. Either the frame is a bit wonky or there z - axis needs an adjustment. At this point I gave up.
    It looks like a fantastic machine, but I have done my time as an engineer and I just wanted an easy setup. Monoprice support are great. They do have clue and were very cool. I will be going for the Ultimate once I get my refund. Monoprice will be releasing new machines soon (much larger build volume). I am still a fan based on the mini select I have.
    January 28, 2017
    Excellent Choice For First-Timers
    The manual for this thing and the Monoprice support response time could use a little help. But, other than that, this is a great printer for anybody looking to get into 3D printing for the first time. Just keep in mind that there is no substitute for educating yourself about how 3D printing works and the temperature requirements of the various filament types. I would suggest that people download the current version of Cura instead of using the one that comes on the SD card and experiment with it while you wait for your printer to arrive. That way, you aren't trying to learn a whole bunch of stuff at the same time. Learn the basics of 3D printing (Google and YouTube are your friends), learn how to use Cura, then learn to use your printer.

    Has some nice Features but...
    I got this printer to upgrade after the Select Mini had cabling failures. While used the Select Mini printer, I discovered I needed a bigger bed and faster print speeds although I was otherwise happy with the Mini until its cable failures.

    Almost everything about this printer looked great and I loved the integration of all the stuff into the base. Also it was heavy and stable. Solid and yet good looking.

    Unfortunately I did not get a chance to do much more than print some samples due to it's numerous problems. This printer came in a very well packed, undamaged box. So I don't see any possible problems I had that could be attributed to shipping.

    It was a bit difficult to figure out how to get the bottom assembly into the gantry and the documentation wasn't great. But after figuring how to do that, it assembled quite easily. I really wish MP didn't use a tightly affixed cable tie to hold the X and Z axis in place. It was pulled so tightly that it's apparently causing part bending/damage.

    While the X axis rods were not bent, I immediately noticed the Z axis was way out of alignment. I could adjust the one on the left quite easily. The one on the right barely would move at all. But I finally did get the Z axis aligned and level. I just thought that the tightness was maybe normal for this printer.

    After that, I aligned the bed too, rehomed all 3 axis, preheated the tip and bed and printed another butterfly sample AOK. (A very low height sample.)

    I noted you can only select PLA or ABS for preheat temps and could not individually control each temp to preheat. Their 170 degree preheat for PLA was just not nearly enough temp. It did accept the gcode changing it though.

    The Z axis issue became evident as it was going out of alignment frequently. While nothing looked wrong, the right motor did not seem to advance up as fast as the left, but did so AOK on the down movements. I then did a sample print of the slightly taller Swan. Whenever the print height reached about 1.5 inches, the Z axis jammed and often would screw up it's own idea of where the bed or home was. While trying to print the Swan, it slammed the nozzle deep into the plate and then tried to home X and Y, scarring the Build Tak material badly. I finally got the Z axis motors to move together with the right side aligned higher than the left. Although not level, this allowed both motors to move freely. Something was clearly damaged. The bed then was then realigned to that. I figured I would just have MP get me a warranty stepper and threaded rod for the right side. I decided to finish testing the printer before ordering warranty parts just to be sure that this was its only problem. Unfortunately it wasn't.

    The next problems I ran into were minor annoyances. There were several parts/cables/belts that lightly scraped against one another. Also the touch panel had things misspelled and was not well organized. To complete tasks often required lots of clicking up and down the menu structure just to do short related tasks. But I figured I would fix these issues later.

    Then the final straw was the print head nozzle jammed every single time I switched filaments or had to shut the printer off with filament installed. The last jam was not going to be fixable without removing the nozzle which I did not feel comfortable with doing while it was under warranty. Considering the other problems it had, I decided to have it replaced under warranty.

    The MP guy I spoke with was very polite. But I was told that they kept no spare parts for their printers (something I ran into with the Mini too) and that they would have cannibalize one of their new printers to get me any parts. They would have to order a whole new printer to turn into a parts machine. How ridiculous!

    So I could either return the printer for refund or replacement only. I chose replacement but then was told it could be weeks before they would get another one in stock and they would not cross ship one. This was going to be a long procedure of shipping back and forth and I wasn't willing to wait that long. So I then chose the last option left which was a refund. I decided to do both the Mini and Plus printers. I have since returned these printers to them although I have not yet received the refund yet. I don't know how long the refunds will take.

    I chose another printer through Amazon and probably won't buy any more from MP.

    Monoprice Maker Select Plus 3D Printer
    The printer worked great for the supplied demos and for my first 6 prints (25 hours). Then it started to push insufficient filament to get a suitable base. Took the extruder off and the gear teeth were completely filled with plastic. No grip.

    Cleaned the teeth, reassembled, and printer the swan demo with white pla. Came out OK except the white was tinted with brown streaks.

    Next day it is back to not working. This time I took the heating element out and the nozzle was coated with brown material that was oozing from the heater electrical windings. It apparently reacts nicely with the PLA to form a hard material that covered the nozzle opening.

    Interesting that Monoprice emailed me the request to rate the product. Now its time to see how their customer service works.

    So I got this printer yesterday and from the get go I was already excited to try out my first 3D printer. Calibrated the printing table per instructions and also used the tool under setup to double check. The table was a little high one side and I couldn't get the other side to not hit the print head. after checking on a video online I just adjusted the right screw a little. Instructions said to go to setup and click "All Home", but this was missing from the screen. no worries. just set it to home one at a time in X Y and Z. Also the example prints are named 1 - 4 on the SD card. not as named in the document. I thought I picked to make a toy robot for my first print and it turned out to be a Baby Elephant. But hey, lets be honest, the Baby elephant was cute and the 3D printer wowed and amazed as it sprung to life. You get some filament to test with so I recommend getting some more when you order. But with the stuff I got I was also able to print a Death Star key chain. All in all, Awesome!

    Not Ready Out of the Box
    I bought this printer for my classroom after buying the earlier model for myself at home, with which I've had success.. I was looking forward to getting this "plus" model for it's streamlined interface unit. I unboxed it, assembled the unit, leveled the bed and started printing. But, the prints were terrible and the nozzle tore the bed tape even though I thought I had a good level. Finally, I noticed some things. The build plate stop switch was out of alignment and was missing its catch spring. The included bed scraper had many dings on the honed edge, which is what started the tear on the bed tape ( I suspect it was from a return and hadn't been inspected). Finally, the Z axis was way out of alignment. Once I fixed these things, the printer worked well, I also agree with the reviewer who mentioned that the manual needs some updating. Finally, I find it funny that the filament spool holder isn't long enough to hold the spool sold by Monoprice. I have have always had a good experience with Monoprice and was surprised to get this level of frustration from their products.
