    Why is the V2 only compatible with ABS/PLA when the V1 is compatible with so much more?
    A shopper on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Per the product comparison page, this printer supports:
    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.
    Can the build plate be replaced? If so, where can I buy just that?
    New User U on Jul 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello - We do not sell the Build plate on its own. If you are dealing with a bed warping issue, upgrading to glass is a cheap alternative. If you are having issues with Bed heating, I suggest you reach out to Tech Support for assistance. If you are looking to R&R yourself, with a little searching online you can find replacement parts online. Just note you will void your warranty.
    What specific design changes have been made between versions? I see this new model is open source, also lists official wifi support and perhaps has internal hardware changes.
    New User U on Apr 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: E3D Style Hotend, Insulated Heat Bed, Enhanced Control Knob, Active Cooling ( Ported Back panel ), Upgraded IPS Color screen, Wifi officially supported ( App to be posted soon ), Some small changes / improvements not too note worthy.
    what modification is required for flexible filament?
    A shopper on May 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: To print with TPU I reduced the print speed to 20 in Cura. This seemed to reduce layer adhesion issues (ie. turning into a ball of TPU) and increased quality. I also increased build plate temperature to 60C and add a brim to increase plate adhesion. I have not had issues with the filament feed.
    Description says 446°F (230°C) max extruder temp, while the Full Specs says +482°F (+250°C). Which is it?
    Richard L on May 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It will do 250C, but keep in mind that the heat bed max temp of 60C (75C with luck) will be the limit for some exotic filaments.
    Is it in stock? or out of the stock? what happened?
    New User U on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Everybody wants the mini it's a popular cheap 3d printer
    Can the nozzle be replaced if it wears out?
    Gary R on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the nozzle is removable and replaceable. It unscrews easily when the print head is hot.
    Why would I buy this over the Delta (once it is out)?
    Weston H on Apr 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There are many advantages and disadvantages to each platform. This is not a simple comparison, The Delta platform we are working on is intended to be easier for a novice to use with Auto Level, Removable build plate.
    How do I replace the hot end? I was told to follow the instructions but could not find any online or in the supplied handbook. Also, where might I find a replacement for the hot end?
    New User U on Sep 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: lots and lots of videos on youtube. Just search for MP Select mini hot end.
    What are the dimensions and the weight of the shipping packaging?

    BEST ANSWER: They are the same. But they have different Q & A pages! So you should probably read both.
    What exactly makes the V2 chassis more rigid and stable the the V1 chassis?
    New User U on May 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The only changes made to the chassis, would be the addition of the fan vent for the fan that cools the main board. We did not highlight any other changes as they were not significant.
    What is the largest capacity micro SD card that is compatible with the printer? Mine came with a 1gb card but it doesn't seem to recognize larger cards, such as a 4gb and an 8gb. When I insert a larger card and try to print, it just says that the card is empty even though there are g-code files on it.
    Michael G on Jan 4, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: 4gb I believe but I would check the manual.
    Does this printer support printing support?
    A shopper on Jul 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Sure. That is in the slicer. Cura, the free slicer that comes with the printer on the SD Card, has this option.
    Is it wireless like V1?
    A shopper on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it is.
    The heated bed has a nice hard black plastic/rubber liner. Do I need to cover this with tape, or this a new feature to cover the aluminum instead of the tape? Is the black liner replaceable?
    A shopper on Aug 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Print directly on the black surface. This is a new design and has worked great for me. No need for tape. I think it is replaceable, I can say mine has seen alot of prints and is still in excellent condition.
    How do I get the wifi to work?
    A shopper on Jan 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: As far as I am aware, this particular model does not support wifi.

    I have worked with many 3D printers in the past and they all used some sort of support material. How does this printer (Select Mini V2) build without support material for undercuts, etc?

    A shopper on Nov 10, 2017
    Can it print metal?
    A shopper on Jul 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can print metal composites. Although the abrasive nature of these materials will degrade a standard brass nozzle. So, either have replacement nozzles on hand, or switch the nozzle with a hardened or nickel plated brass nozzle.
    In the manual it says that there will be yellow tape on the platform but when I received my printer there was no sign of yellow tape... is this a mistake or should the printer have tape?
    A shopper on Jun 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. That would be a typo, the unit will not come with yellow tape of the build platform. It will come with the buildtak surface on the platform.
    How to use Updated profiles for the latest version of Cura ? And how to install to Cura 3.0 ? Thanks.
    New User U on Dec 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I used the latest version of cura on my PC and it has settings in it for the MP mini and I've had no issues with it.
    will fusion 360 work with this?
    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?

    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, White
    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, White
    BEST ANSWER: If Fusion 360 can output an STL, you can use a slicing program to build the gcode file you will need to print anything on the mini.

    You can mod the v2 the same as you can mod the v1 to expand the variety of materials it can print. Out of the box as is, because it uses a bowden extruder instead of a direct drive extruder, there are some limitations to what both versions can handle. The info for the v2 was updated to just reflect the basics to minimize confusion for people new to 3D printing.

    The v2 has a bunch of upgrades over the v1, so in theory, it's the better version. It's also the newer version so there may be eccentricities that haven't been sussed out yet, whereas the v1 has been fully community tested.
    Wich PLA or ABS is compatible with V2? 3.0mm or 1.75mmm?
    A shopper on Sep 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 1.75mm.
    Would this be a good model to print D&D miniatures?
    Michael E on May 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I've gotten very good prints - but haven't tried printing anything this small. I believe this 'bot could probably do miniatures if you spent the time to really dial in the settings, used good filament, and printed slowly enough.

    There's a guy on YouTube "The 3D Printing DM" who did a recent video discussing low cost printers he recommends - and this was the first one he suggested.
    Why does the printer stop at certain points and stay there for an extended period of time? It leaves excess materials and screws up the prints
    New User U on Jul 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This should not happen if printing by SD card. Other methods like wifi or octipi will depend on the quality of the communication signal.
    I am having two issues. 1) When the bed is heading in the farthest position, the pulley is grinding on the power cable zip tie. Is this normal? 2) I am experiencing shifting in both the X and Y Axis. I am printing extremely slow but still does it. Sometimes it is at the beginning layers, while other times it is at the higher levels of a 14 hr print. How do I fix this?
    A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I dont think there should be any grinding going on.
    Sounds like something is not right with moving of axis, mine so far seems to be stable and accurate.
    Can I download Cura with mac?
    A shopper on May 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes mac version 2.5 which I am using
    How / Where do I install the Updated profiles for the latest version of Cura (Oct 26, 2017) ?
    A shopper on Jan 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You can simply create a custom profile and copy/paste the data of the printer. Worked flawless for me.
    Platform is not heating how do I fix this problem?
    New User U on Jun 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: In all likeliness the bed wiring is broken and or shorting. Sometime the thermistor detaches from the bed too. There's no fast way to fix it. MP claims to not have parts for it and would prefer to replace it under warranty. To fix it you will have to disassemble the bed and het pad and check every inch of the cable. You'll probably find the wires broken at several points if its like mine was. I cut out the bad spots in the cable and respliced it only to find it was also badly rubbing on everything under the bed. I reran the cable so it goes in and out of the base plate when moving. Some mods involve drilling holes in the back of the base and rerouting the cable outside the base/heat bed. Not a quick fix.
    Setup instructions for the mini 3d printer say "standard printer paper". This needs clarified, as printer paper comes in different grades, weights, and thickness. Specifically what kind? Where do we measure, on the metal table or on the pad?
    New User U on May 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Standard sheet of A4 white paper. You slide the paper between the nozzle and the metal bed. You want to feel slight pressure with the paper, but still able to freely move underneath the nozzle.

    Lots of nice improvements
    This model add a lot to the already great V1.

    -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.

    I would recommend this product for beginners or pros it is a good 3D printer for its price and is easy to use
    May 1, 2017
    Entry-level price, with entry-level problems.
    Nice entry-level printer when it works, but...

    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.

    Perfect for beginners
    I just bought one of these at the beginning on May before they went back ordered. I'm completely new to 3D printing but I'm really impressed with the prints this little one is pulling out. I was printing literally 30 mins after opening the box and after leveling the bed as per instructions. PLA results are fantastic but it seems that on large parts a raft is required. Hope it lasts.!

    Seems ok in design, but defective in practice
    I think this printer would have been ok, except that mine arrived defective. The x-axis would slip a little bit during printing, ruining every print. Even the test print and other small prints failed.

    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!

    Aesome little machine
    I love this little machine and would give it a 5 star rating if it would create models out of ABS. Right now after a lot of researching it only reliably does PLA filament.

    MP select mini v2, excellent printer and great value
    I bought a select mini v2 to compliment my A8, as well as bring 3D printing to my friends. No issues at all- prints well, bed is easy to level. It has been printing almost every day. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get into 3D printing, on a budget, and without headaches.
