    When is the next firmware going to be released? The one I have now doesn't have an X or a Y axis control.
    New User U on Aug 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The X and Y axis are belt driven. Should be able to move them by hand, especially the Y (build plate).
    When I try to connect it into my pc, it says it doesn't have a drive, where can I install it?
    A shopper on Dec 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The necessary drivers are included in the CURA software on the SD card provided. You can also download CURA (Version 15.04.6) directly from the Ultimaker website. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    what do i need to make it work after i receive the printer? what software do i need?
    A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Software is included on the MicroSD Card. Your options out of the box are Cura, and Repetier. However, there is a preloaded Gcode file to get you printing without needing to install software first.
    When does the v2 come out?
    New User U on Apr 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: V2 is out as of now
    USB driver is not working with my computer running windows 8.1. Cura does not show the USB connection. I used the driver that came with and it does work. Where can I download the right drives?
    A shopper on Dec 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: For me, going to device manager to figure out which com port it was on, then selecting 57600 baud make it work. Win10, 64-bit.
    when i home the build plate it only goes to the front left corner. How do you calibrate all four corners? also my display is different than the one shown
    A shopper on Jul 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Simply move the build plate to each corner independently. You can achieve this by using the menus (x, and y moves) or simply moving the plate manually.
    How do I start a new filament?
    A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Heat up the head using the built in functions. Pull out the old filament once the head is hot. Don't try to pull it out when the head is cold, you will break a small piece off and jam the head
    What is the max size the MicroSD reader can read? I put in a 2GB and it couldn't read it.

    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
    BEST ANSWER: They are the same. But they have different Q & A pages! So you should probably read both.
    Does this work with Cura 2.3.1? I can print with the older version (15.04.03), but can't connect with 2.3.1. I need 2.3.1 because the behavior is different, and 15.04.03 is adding extraneous surfaces that aren't in my model.
    A shopper on Nov 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I upgraded to CURA 2.3.0 and selected the RidgidBot for a printer ... Now I get great prints but the caveat is I have to move the component to the front left quarter of the build table in the CURA 2.3.0 screen.
    Is the stock configuration enough to print nylon/alloy 910 properly?
    A shopper on May 14, 2017
    Will this work with a chrome Book?
    A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I think you would have difficulty using it directly with a Chromebook. You could conceivably get a raspberry pi and set it up to work with that, at which point you could run it from a web browser and thus the Chromebook would be fine. Alternately, it CAN operate without a computer connection by simply loading g-code onto the included SD card, but I'm not sure the tool chain exists for the Chromebook to generate g-code.
    Where can replacement parts (extruders, etc) be found? I do not see any listed here.
    New User U on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Kyle's spot on. I'd recommend refitting an E3D hotend onto this printer once you're familiar with working with it and have had some success. It's a much better hotend, you can find clones online for $10 (which I have used several of, they're fine), and it'll perform better and be replaceable.
    The instructions online make it sound like you can just slip the heater cartridge and thermistor out and slip them into the E3D, but I found that to be false. On my MP, the cartridge was cemented in and I had to do some teardown and rewiring.
    Obviously this voids the warranty. But it's fun!
    Do you have a release date for version 2 of the MP Mini please?
    A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: According to a CES 2017 announcement, "first quarter 2017".
    I'm feeding the filament line in the extruder but it's not in line with the feeding tub?
    A shopper on Dec 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Cut the end of the filament at a 45 degree angle and then straighten a few inches at the end with your fingers. Pressing the spring loaded lever, insert the filament past the gear. With a little fiddling you should be able to hit the other hole that leads to the Bowden tube.
    Is there any more information available at this time about the Mini V2? Mainly if the print bed size has changed?
    New User U on Apr 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Print bed size is the same as the v1.
    Is there g-code to switch the cooling fan off? I often start printing in the evening and leave the printer over night to do it's job. Is there any way (gcode maybe?) to switch the cooling fan off (this one on the extruder)? I mean, printing takes like 3-4 hours and the fan is on for few more hours without any need until I switch it off in the morning.
    Greeting from Poland!
    New User U on Dec 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This is the End G-code I use, can't remember where I copied it from but it works well:

    M104 S0 ; turn off extruder
    M140 S0 ; turn off bed
    M106 S1 ; turn off fan
    G28 X ; home x axis
    G1 Y120 ; move platform forward for access
    M84 ; disable motor
    Will this work with a chromebook?
    A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It's not so much the 3D printer, it's the software you need to print items, CURA for example. I don't believe There is an android version off the software.
    A shopper on Dec 10, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, at the moment we do not sell parts. If you are requesting a part to be replaced you can always request an RMA to see if we can provide that for you. I hope this helps and thank you for your question!
    When I set the printer to Home axis as it says to do in the setup instructions, the nozzle goes to the front left corner of the platform. It then moves around and scratched the tape on the build platform. Also, the position doesn't allow me to reach the front left screw to level and change the depth of the build platform correctly. In the instructions it shows the home axis as front middle. Is there something wrong? If so what?
    New User U on Feb 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I guess I was lucky, my build plate started off level right out of the box. But I wouldn't worry much if yours isn't. Even if it was -- things don't stay level for long. When you change the tape to a thicker/thinner one or have to dismantle the hot-end to fix a clog -- you're going to have to re-level. It's not too hard.

    Start by homing the printer. It'll put it at the 0, 0, 0 location -- the front corner. Make sure that the nozzle doesn't touch the plate here.

    Now insert a small bit of paper (just plain printer paper is fine) between the nozzle and the build-plate.
    Then start unscrewing the corner screw. If you can't get access to it, then use the movement menus to move the print head over a bit.
    Unscrew until the paper has the slightest bit of resistance. It should neither be totally free to move nor totally tacked down by the nozzle.

    Once that corner is done use the movement menus to shift the print-head over to another corner.
    Repeat for each corner.

    If the level was a long way off when you started, you will probably need to do another pass.

    I know when you're just getting started the process of leveling can seem pretty tedious. But keep at it because (1) you get a lot faster at it once you've done it a few times and (2) an un-leveled bed causes so many problems (hot-end clogging, bed adhesion problems, warping, etc.) -- it's well worth the time spent.
    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, White
    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
    Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2, Black
    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.
    Does this printer work with Solidworks software?
    A shopper on Dec 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It should. You just need an STL file, which I'm sure Solidworks can export. Pull that into Repetier, Slic3r or whatever you like, and slice away.
    Any chance of increasing the bed temperature to 100C? I print almost exclusively with ABS, and this printer would be perfect for my smaller parts with that option. 60C is just not high enough for reliable ABS prints.
    A shopper on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The built in controls top out at 60, but if you're running something like Octoprint or controlling it with a PC, you can set the bed higher. That said, I'm not sure you could get it to 100C without a lot of patience. I powered mine up and set it to 100C and after around 85C it really starts to struggle to get any warmer. After fifteen minutes of heating it's still not quite 90C
    i have a mac and what do i need to do to wirelessly hook it up to my mac?
    A shopper on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You can setup a Raspberry Pi with a wifi adapter and run OctoPi on it. OctoPi is a Raspbian linux distribution pre-configured with OctoPrint. You plug the Pi into the printer via USB and OctoPi/OctoPrint can then control the printer and provides an intuitive, simple (but a little ugly) web interface that you can use to control every aspect of printing from uploading and slicing a model (it uses Cura in the backend to perform the slicing), to starting the print, monitoring the print, and even creating a time-lapse video of your print if you have a camera connected. A definite "must have" for any 3D printer.
    I checked the head to bed calibration, is good. When I print the filament balls up on the print bed. Both the
    head and bed are up to correct temp before I start printing. ??HELP
    Dominick S on Mar 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The distance to the work bed is closer than you think. I had to ease mine in a half turn on each screw until filament would stick
    Sometimes when starting the print, the printer instantly goes to maximum on the x-axis and the continues to turn the stepper and the belt skips. It does this about every 5th print. When I catch it, I turn the the power off immediately. With no adjustment to anything I power it back on and select the same file from the SD card and print again, and it prints just fine. I now have to watch each print on the start to catch this. What could be causing this? Like I said, the second time I print the file, I change nothing.
    New User U on Feb 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry to hear that, 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

    A Neat Printer with Serious QC Issues
    I am having a lot of fun with my MP Select Mini 3D printer which I received on 7/1/2016, but it's also giving me lots of headaches. This is an exciting new product with a lot of potential to be a great entry-level, consumer grade 3D printer, but it will only reach that potential after MP works with the manufacturer to solve the quality control issues that plague this product.

    First, the provided "brick on a leash" desktop power supply is junk. Mine failed instantly on first application of AC power with two audible pops as the regulator chip and several surrounding components exploded. Since I received my printer on the Friday before the long Independence Day weekend, I didn't want to languish all weekend waiting to start an RMA on Tuesday, followed by weeks of waiting for more stock of this very popular printer to arrive to replace mine. So I voided my warranty by lopping off the DC power cable so I could use it to power my printer from a beefy power supply I already had.

    That got me printing that evening, and all was well for a couple days. Then, I got the common and dreaded "Sensor failed" error message when one of the extruder thermistor leads broke. So I found suitable replacements on Amazon, waited several days for them to arrive, and got my printer back up and running the following weekend. Along with adding a 3D-printed bracket to mount a cooling fan over the controller board (which I've read is prone to overheating), this got my printer up and running again, and I made several more successful prints.

    Now by this time, with a mere few of days of operating time, the extruder fan is already getting quite noisy. I think its bearings are failing, and I have a replacement on the way from a reputable electronics component distributor. It should arrive by this next weekend.

    So, I fired the printer up this evening to make a quick print of something I found on Thingiverse, and now it appears that the build platform thermistor has failed. Luckily I ordered a ten pack of replacement thermistors when I fixed the extruder, so I should be able to fix the machine yet again this weekend.

    Now please keep in mind that all of this has transpired over less than two weeks. I've been active in various MP Select Mini 3D printer enthusiast forums, and reports of power supply and thermistor failures are very common.

    If MP can work with the manufacturer to bring the build quality of this product up to acceptable levels, then this will be a great little product. Until then, I cannot recommend it, and I'm giving it two stars. If I didn't have these reliability issues, then I would have rated it at least four stars. Maybe even five. I'll keep on repairing, upgrading and enjoying my printer and participating the MP Select Mini community, and I really hope that MP will push the manufacturer to make the quality improvements necessary to make this a great product. I am resubmitting this review with a four-star rating, because it never appeared on the Monoprice site after submission with a two-star rating.

    PROS: Inexpensive
    Stand-alone operation
    Enthusiastic community

    CONS: Poor quality control
    Power supply is unreliable
    Thermistors are unreliable
    Extruder fan bearing does not last long

    Great starter printer
    This printer is perfect as a "my first 3D printer." It's on the low end in terms of specs, but the performance and quality of the final prints are great. It comes ready to print out of the box and is very easy to setup and use. There's also a great community around this printer, always finding ways to upgrade its capabilities or improve performance.
    If you know you're going to get serious about 3D printing, there's a good chance you'll want a higher-end, more expensive printer. If you are only interested smaller prints or are looking for a way to explore 3D printing without committing a ton of money and labor to a larger more complicated machine, this is a great choice.

    PROS: -Low price
    -Very good print quality
    -Quick setup - it's pretty much ready to go out of the box. Do a quick check to make sure it's calibrated and you're ready to start printing.
    -Active community with plenty of tips and mods to help make the most of the printer.
    -Several of the upgrades I've seen recommended by the community appear to have already been incorporated into the currently shipping printers.
    -Great support from Monoprice
    -Support told me that they are aware that many people who buy this printer will want to do more to it than just plug it in and print and they generally don't void the warranty for 'tinkering' or modding unless that's what caused the failure. I was told I could have opened up the casing and they would have still replaced it under warranty. This is an amazing policy and says a lot about Monoprice's understanding of the market and their users.

    CONS: -Small print area - 120x120x120mm, the majority of things I've wanted to print have fit, but there have been a few that I've had to split in half before printing and then glue together, or just haven't been able to print.
    -About one week (of near-constant use) after I received the printer, the z-axis limiter switch failed. Monoprice support was great and got me a replacement in less than a week from my call to support, no cost and no hassle.
    -Not really a con, but be aware that only a small amount is filament is included. You will want to buy a spool of filament with this printer. I got a spool of Monoprice's white PLA (PID: 10552) and it's worked great.

    You get more than you pay for
    This 3D printer may be small in size and price, but it boasts powerful features and is a workhorse. I have been pushing plastic through this little printer non-stop. All the parts for other broken toys I always wanted to redesign and improve are printed and working. This printer is truly amazing. First bit of advice - buy Simplify3D software. It pays for itself on first use of this 3D printer. Short answer: I LOVE THIS LITTLE PRINTER and would never part with it.

    PROS: Cheap, small, efficient, full featured. No problems with getting support.

    CONS: The instruction guide should be lit on fire - totally useless. Pay the ransom and get Simplify3D software - it made all else easy.

    Solid build. ..... but
    So this is my 3rd 3D printer. I find that the two larger printers I have seem to be constantly busy and after doing some reviews the select seemed like a good fit for a small printer I could make smaller parts with freeing up time of my larger printers. Having owned it for 2 weeks I will say that I have never had to "baby sit" a printer as much as I have with this one. For the first week the printer seemed to go strong, then the problems started. Ultimately the problem with this little printer is the feeder motor. It is just under powered. I currently have an open RMA request to return this one and hopefully get a working unit. Given its size, whenever you have a hot end jam its very painful to clean so make sure you season your hot end immediately. Also just like in another review, the fan causes vibration that is at just the level to interfere with the vocal levels of a tv so if you plan on running it in a room with others youll find yourself turning the volume up louder than normal.

    I havent decided yet if I end up getting another unit and the other units have the same problem if I will return the printer permanently or simply take it apart and put a stronger motor in the unit seeing as the over all quality of the printer isn't all that bad for the price.

    PROS: Solid build (frame wise)
    Easy to setup / configure

    CONS: Poor nema motors for at least the feeding mechanisms.
    Poor fan. This thing has a solid frame of metal making it nice then they throw a crappy fan on the unit.

    A great first printer
    The MP Select Mini 3D Printer arrived a few hours ago. I went through the setup in the manual linked on this web page, stuck in a roll of black PLA selected baby.gcode from the demo files included, and it printed at 195°C, with the platform heater off. This is my first 3D printer, so I don't have much to compare it with, but it's better than a hobbyist product: You plug in it, give it a file, and it prints it. ( I did follow the setup instructions and did check the leveling alignment. It seemed fine to me.)

    I use a Mac, so I haven't yet been able to get Cura on Mac to successfully slice an stl file to give me a .gcode file that works. The PDF manual has lo-res screenshots of the settings for Windows, but they show a much higher extruder temperature than the sample .gcode file that comes with the printer.

    PROS: Pros: •  color screen * works out-of-the-box.

    CONS: • No sample PLA included (at least I couldn't find any)
    • At the time of this writing, no printer definition file linked from this page for use in Cura.

    Excellent Starter Printer
    I'm retired electronics engineer. Got my Monoprice Mini Select about 3 months ago. Steep learning curve with lots of help from the MP Mini Select Facebook page. I had to level the bed out of the box, but then it printed very well for many PLA prints. Got into trouble with bed adhesion, but found acetone cleaning resolved that, then put on a PEI sheet and everything sticks down well, PLA needs a surface clean, but ABS stick really well.. Now starting to print ABS, bed heats up to 80 deg C no problem and after initial warping due to to much air on the piece. Put on a 40mm fan with a fan shroud I printed. ABS prints really well now. Had clogs, but cleared them. The Facebook page has been extremely useful in helping with the learning curve, the issues with clogs & bad prints. Add to that the excellent You Tube videos on Mono Price Mini Select by FDM_Guru. Up to now used the SD micro card to print. I use Thingiverse for finding interesting 3D prints to download and gain printing experience. Using Cura & Repetier for slicing and generating the gcode for printing. Now using Sketchup to create my own 3D prints.

    PROS: Cheap, works very well, good quality printing for a very low price, heated bed. Parts are pretty generic and there are lots of parts out here which if applied correctly can improve your original printer. Although right out the box it's really great.

    CONS: None really.
    September 15, 2016
    I can't believe this solid little printer for $200. Right out of the box, I did a quick nozzle height adjustment, I didn't go through any elaborate levelling: I just turned each screw 1/4 turn until it was adjusted. I printed the elephant right off of the included micro sd card. Three hours later, an excellent print. Amazing. I have not yet printed anything else, as I have had trouble getting change cura settings for this printer. But I guess that's a software issue.

    PROS: Price. Solid build. Works right out of the box (with a slight adjustment)
    My first print was great
    Lots of online groups.
    Its a Malyan printer (so parts may be available)
    I love having it on my desk.

    CONS: Parts may not be available
    It may not last long, or it may need a new hot end (see above)
    It's not fast

    Great printer for the price!
    I have spent a lot of time this summer printing in a local makerspace, and for the price of this printer I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do some of my printing work at home. The price of the printer, tools and filament was less that I was going to pay to have some prototypes made.
    I haven't had the power supply failure that a lot of people talk about, and apparently I have a later generation of the hardware that has some changes to the print head. Aside from making a new knob, I haven't done any of the modifications suggested on the internet. I've had a kinked filament jam the print head, but that's the only snag so far.
    There is a very active community online supporting this printer, and there are a lot of good tips on how to get really good quality prints from it. With some attention to detail for the leveling and height adjustments of the print bed, I'm getting much better quality prints than I did from the $1500 printers in my makerspace.

    PROS: price
    good community support

    CONS: availability of spare parts
    could use some locktite on some of the internal screws

    Best Valued 3D Printer
    Truly great product ! At less than 200.00 and just a few minutes of setup, anyone can become a small manufacturer, creating anything that they can imagine. The fun and excitement is worth way more than the price of the product.

    PROS: Price

    CONS: takes a bit of work to get the file onto the SD card if you're not equipped to do so.

    Greatest low cost 3D printer I've seen!
    Wow, what can I say? I've had this little gem for about 48 hours now. I returned my MOD-t after many, many failed prints. I loved the aesthetics of it, but nothing would adhere no matter what I would do. I found this Monoprice 15365 on Amazon shortly after returning the $399 MOD-t. I took a gamble for $200. This thing is AMAZING! I wish I could print directly to it via USB or WiFI, and perhaps I can make the USB printing happen, but I've only tried CURA so far. Print detail is out of this world! I've done about 9 prints so far and not a single failure. I can't believe the price! Sure, the print bed is a bit smaller, but it's SO MUCH FUN!!!

    PROS: Sturdy design
    Very "cool" looking
    Takes up little desk space
    Takes any brand PLA or ABS filament
    VERY quiet
    Easy to operate
    Color screen
    Pre calibrated bed

    CONS: The only thing I have an issue with is the wheel used to select items from the menu. I have large hands and I have a hard time getting it to spin. Also, the select box is sometimes hard to make out. Otherwise, perfection!!!
