Love being able to make 2 things at once, cuts Time in half. This is my second one and I have nothing bad to say about either of them well worth the price.
We are familiar with this steamer. We are on our third one in 6 years. I would appreciate a more comprehensive maintenance guidelines to ensure that we are preserving the longevity and performance of this streamer.
Read all of this before passing judgement:
I have spent just about every day on the customer service website trying to get my printer working like it should.
Out of the box, fantastic prints. It is accurate to .07mm x, y, AND z, and the tolerances are .13mm for most types of filament with print-in-prints and .19mm for sticky filament like PETG. I have been testing and testing this printer with every filament I have and have loved it... when it works.
I have had an issue with the latest firmware that causes my screen to lag, and almost every time I alter a print, the screen goes dark, the extruders freeze where they’re at, they burn the plastic... I am forced to abandon the print and restart the printer and start over.
Printing without a raft is a challenge with Flashprint. It’s not the best software, especially when you’re used to Cura or S3D. Simplify 3D hasn’t had much movement in over a year, so I’m worried that platform has been abandoned and the Creator 3 profile won’t work with mirror or duplicate prints. Flashprint DOES do a great job, period. It’s just not much fun figuring out the settings. Once you do, great. But be prepared to use quite a bit of the supplies PLA for getting the z dialed in without a raft. It takes a LOT of time.
I replaced the supplied Bowden tube with Capricorn because the 3mm ID tubing will scratch the top lid. The Capricorn cut to the right size is perfect and won’t scratch the top lid.
Lastly, my y-axis stepper makes hissing noises while printing. It is defective. I have been trying to get a new one sent to me. At this point I’m thinking they may just need to send me a new printer so they can fiddle with this one and get it going but we shall see.
All in all, my PETG prints are gorgeous. No stringing, no problems. Printing with ABS is a dream. No warping, and stunning finishes.
Stringing is a thing of the past. I retract 4mm at 50mm/s and I have not a blemish to speak of.
Printing in mirror or dual mode is great. I would recommend this printer, but plan to be frustrated for a while until the satisfying sound of peeling plastic from the buildtak happens. Then all the frustration is worth it.
