I’ve had this printer about 2 weeks now and so far I’m really happy with it. All the components appear to be good quality and much of the machine was pre-assembled. The setup instructions included were pretty lousy but there are a number of great videos on YouTube that walk you through the process. So far I’ve completed a number of successful prints (both large and small). With the correct settings it’s capable of great detail and it’s relatively quiet. I use the latest version of Cura for slicing and I found a number of great YouTube videos to help understand the plethora of settings. I do wish it had an auto bed leveling feature but it isn’t a huge inconvenience to level the bed before each print.
Overall I’m very pleased with the purchase, definitely a great value for the price.
Works good out of the box. I did strap the power supply down to keep it from falling over with a bib role of filament. Still very happy with this printer.
I prefer to give this printer for 5 stars, but I don't want to make it so perfect like I write a fade review. Just share with you guys for what I printed by this printer. Printing is very smooth and quickly assemble it for use.
This printer freaking rocks, quick assembly and printing bad prints in no time! :) After some major tweaking of software and proper bed leveling this thing is printing very detail models that I throw at it. The small footprint is also good as it sits perfectly on my remaining desk space and is built very sturdy.
The best under 400$ printer right out the box! See for yourself!
The printer was assembled quickly and seems to be working fine. I am printingbone of the included tret files as I type this. I am just glad I noticed the loose screw before I powered the printer on. It should be due to some tests before shipment. Other things are very fine!
Works fine out-of-box without any adjustments (only tightened some screws).
- easy setup
- good quality
- included everything to start printing
- some ambiguity how to setup Ultimaker Cura (3d slicing software)
- has some issue with bridging, but this is hard to make perfect even for more expensive printers.
- instruction from CR-10, not from CR-10 mini, but difference only in sizes
Absolutley incredible printer right out of the box. Up and running in 30 minutes and it prints beautifully. I added a $30 pad to the glass bed and I don't even need glue sticks anymore. Just level the bed well and that's it. Only thing I strongly reccomend is a sd card extension . It's a pain to get the card in and out. I bought a second one and look forward to its arrival tomorrow. I was so used to fighting with the anet a8 to get a decent print that I'm blown away at the ease of use this printer gives me. I'm going to buy a full size cr10s eventually but it's hard to imagine a better version of this printer . Great deal for sure.
We have printed LOADS of minis and terrain features. It definitely isn't foolproof and has a steep learning curve. However it was pretty easy to put together even for my not so handy husband. I would like it if the bed heated a bit more evenly. If the print fails it's usually because the filament started to peel away from the bed then get stuck on the nozzle and eventually takes the whole print with it if you aren't watching. But definitely a good deal. Will be looking to make modification.
First print came out great, so far it's been pretty easy to use. My only problem is that it seems like the instructions included were for the full size CR-10 but that wasn't a big deal.
This printer is everything that I hoped for. I have a monoprice mini v2 and it has been amazing but I wanted the bigger build volume. I had 2 Tronxy DIY kits that are a nightmare. I will never purchase a Kit printer again. Having the ability to print 30 minutes out of the box is a big deal. The support community for this printer is huge. Spend a few extra bucks and get this printer.
Arrived quickly, and prints better out of the box then my monoprice mini did. I know quality can be hit or miss on these things but mine was great, no complaints from the 6 or so prints I've done so far.

Newest printer added to my fleet, and it works great. So far any issues that I've had (and there really haven't been any to speak of) have been self imposed, and not the fault of the printer.
Easy setup, only problem being the adjustment knobs for the heat bed, but other than that great product. A problem that others have had is a bowed glass bed, but mine is perfectly flat. If I could change one thing it would be the binder clips for the heating bed... although this is merely a cosmetic issue.
With my printer Everything assembled well, all the screws where tight and it works great.
Good price for an Awesome printer! Hopefully they keep it up
