Semi Professional 3D Printing at Its Best!
I may not be an expert when it comes to 3D printing, but I’ve certainly done enough research to know when I’ve found something special! Sure, the printer you’re about to read about isn’t the cheapest on the market but it’s not the most expensive either.
Whilst my website isn’t here to sway your decision one way or another if you’re looking for a printer like this, I have to be honest and tell you I’m really excited about this one. Of course, the model I’m talking about is the MakerGear M2 which, in my opinion is one of the best on the market IF you have some knowledge about printing in this way.
First of all this printer has been designed to sit on a desktop however, you may want to consider the weight which is a pretty hefty 28lbs. Perhaps this doesn’t make it one of the most portable 3D Printers out there, but the features detailed below will probably mean this is of minor importance.
One of the biggest problems I’ve found with printers like this is the parts that are used to construct them don’t make printing in 3D very easy, however the manufacturer has made sure there was no “skimping” in that respect with this model.
Not only do you get a rigid steel frame which has been designed to be resistant to humidity as well as temperature fluctuations, but it also has a steel powder coating to add a little touch of class to the overall look.
On top of this anodized aluminum axis mounts and carriage ball bearings have been used which are precision machined. All of this adds up to a 3D printer that’s just about as solid as it gets in terms of construction.
High Resolution Printing
Due to the way in which the frame has been designed (along with the parts), it’s possible to print in resolutions as high as 0.01! For those of you are not aware, this means you can create prints using layers of filament thinner than a standard sheet of paper. All of this makes for better precision and excellent results with any type of project you might have.
Plus, you have the option to print using both ABS and PLA filament giving you greater scope with your designs. Incidentally, you should know the manufacturer will provide you with a 1K spool of PLA plastic included in the price which is 1.75mm.
Other Points to Consider
There are various plastic parts on this 3D printer such as the handle, extruder, spool holder and mount however they have all been expertly constructed under the watchful eye of the technicians at MG.
It may also be useful for you to know that this model can handle both 110 and 220v power supplies and it comes with a standard 6 month warranty.
All in All
I have yet to come across another 3D printer that will suit people who are at intermediate level with this type of printing, and at a price that’s affordable. As I have said, it’s not up to me to sway your decision but if you’ve been around 3D printing and are ready to invest in something that’s not only low maintenance, get’s on with the job at hand without any trouble and will last, this model is definitely worth further investigation!
