MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
The World's #1 Selling 3D Printer*
Too often, getting a low-cost 3D printer means getting a box of ill-fitted parts with poorly written and incomplete documentation. You end up spending hours on the internet, searching forums and asking for help to get the printer assembled and operating properly.
That isn't how Monoprice operates and this 3D printer is a perfect example! This printer not only comes fully assembled, it has already been calibrated at the factory. All you have to do is perform a quick check to verify that the print bed is still leveled, in case it shifted during shipping, then load the included MicroSD™ card, load some filament, and start printing the preloaded model. Nowhere else will you find a 3D printer ready to print out of the box at such a low price!

Questions and Answers
ABS, PLA, XT Copolyester, PET, TPU, TPC, FPE, PVA, HIPS, Jelly, Foam, and Felty filaments.
Note, however that filament capability is a function of extruder and bed type and temperature range, and this printer should be able to print any material which works within the specified temperature range for this printer.
G.W: 7.5 KGS
CARTON DIM: 360 x 270 x 415 MM
Sounds like something is not right with moving of axis, mine so far seems to be stable and accurate.
and what is better version 1 or 2 ?
i noticed that version 1 has a wide variety of printable material compared to version 2 that can only print ABS and PLA. is that true?
There is a ready to print cat file on the sd that comes with the printer, but otherwise you'll need to use the slicing program to set the "resolution" of the print, the infill, etc. then through WIFI, USB, or Micro-SD you load the file onto the print and print away!
Hope this was helpful.

-The print quality is, of course, still excellent.
-The hotend seems to be performing much better than the old model. I haven't had any clogs in the weeks that I've owned it.
-There is a fan in the back to cool the board. It seems to help, though I think it could do better. I might try a more powerful fan in the future.
-The knob, unlike on the V1, is actually usable! Believe me, it's a big deal.
-I like the black finish. I also liked the white, but I like the black, too.
-The bearings didn't need to be immediately replaced, which is nice.
-Leveling was always a struggle for me on the V1. I don't know what's changed (maybe just a non-warped plate), but I haven't had to touch the leveling screws in a month.
Now, there are still a few negatives.
-The spool holder is...not great. You'll need to print a better one at some point, but it'll do for a while.
-It's still really noisy. Seriously, you might think something is wrong with it, but that's actually just how it is. I have the Plus as well. I can hardly hear it in the same room. I can hear the Mini down the hall. The V1 was the same.
-The hotend, while certainly improved, is a bit confusing if you've followed online discussions. At one point, it was all-metal, then it wasn't, then maybe they were going to send a replacement all-metal one. I don't know what the deal actually is with it, but I'm not worrying too much about it.
-My x-axis belt is rubbing...somewhere...and I haven't been able to figure out where. It has become pretty severe, though, so I'm going to have to take it apart eventually to find the cause. It's leaving little black specks on any prints that are too far to the right side of the bed.
-That horrible black print surface. Oh my god! My Plus came with it, too, and it's the worst. Just rip it right off as soon as you get it. It's going to come off in pieces on your prints, anyway.
Use the bare aluminum with some painters tape until you get something better, if you have to, but do yourself a favor and just don't even start with that black stuff. PEI is good. PrintBite is better and you'll never need to replace it.
Overall, it's a really good printer for the price. I don't think there is another on the market that is a better value. Maybe the upcoming delta, but we'll have to see. If you want to get into 3D Printing, it's probably the best first step into it.

1. Bed heater wires broke after 10 days. A common problem (Google it) that could easily be resolved by short loops of wire that could flex, instead of being restrained by zip-ties.
Other than having to fix it myself (knowing that sending it back for a replacement would yield the same result), it's been a great entry-level printer experience.
2. It is only wireless with a phone app... It cannot print from a laptop through your WiFi at home.
3. My experience is the Cura software it ships with, prints fine through the USB cable, but doesn't generate Gcode that can be printed from the SD card. I always need to keep my computer on and hooked-up to print, rather than dropping the SD card into the printer, and printing on-board.
4. I could not get the current Cura software with more parameters to work with this printer.
5. I need to manually "prime" the nozzle just before printing, by forcing a little filament through by hand, or the first edges of my raft do not print, and things go bad from there.
6. The bed is warped. From the factory, mine is high in the center, so leveling the bed at the edges caused nozzle scraping in the center on my first few runs. I now adjust the bed height in the middle of the bed. Not sure how that affects the print quality at the edges.

I did try modifying the g-code of a print to set reset the x and y origins on every layer, which prevented the slipping issue, but that is not a workable solution for every single printed object.
Hopefully I can get a working replacement!
