I have the Wanhao Duplicator I3 (a lower spec version of this) and it is awesome. I have no doubt that this will be an exceptional piece of kit. It seems a very good price for what you are getting. Now I have to work out how to afford the upgrade, hot!
so tempted.

If you are looking for your first printer I highly recommend the Creality Ender 3.

Have to agree. Unless you are looking for a ready to use printer and not one you can build from semi-assembled components shipped IKEA style flat, then the D9 is overkill especially as its the smallest build space variant. If it was any of the larger ones (40*40 or 50*50) then it would be amazing. As it stands, you xan get two Ender 3 for the price of the D9. You probably would also get slightly better print quality and I am saying this as an owner of Wanhao and an Ender 3.

Ditto!

I Bought a glass plate for the deck and a can of 3D LAC and it made a night and day difference for adhesion of odd shaped pieces
If not in a rush and yes I know smaller bed size but this looks to be cheaper

A quick Google has the ender 3 at much less than half the price of this. If its a better buy, what am I missing?

a 300x300 heated bed vs a 200x200 heated bed for a start.
Its actually 220 x 220 x 250 vs 300 x 300 x 400 but yes the bed is smaller. The real question is how often you plan to utilise the maximum size of the print bed? From my full year of printing, I would say not very often. I for one prefer multiple printers as I am able to print several pieces at the same time unlike just one.

Both printers arrive semi assembled. Arguably the Ender 3 requires a few more construction steps but then those steps are of similar complexity. See for yourselves.

My printers are printing most of the day unless I am swapping PLA spools, removing completed prints or messing around with settings.

There are some really amazing things to print:

Yep I wasn't being precise- but didn't go to height as was making the point on the cost and performance of the larger heated bed.
Although as above if not in a massive rush and size not top of the agenda that one I linked with the quad extruder under this price looks interesting.

Can anyone recommend a printer with built-in scanner for an all-in-one solution to scan an object for you then print it out?

I haven't tested the XYZ Da Vinci but some of them supposedly include a 3D scanner.

computerworld.com/art…tml

all3dp.com/1/a…nc/

If you want a laser engraver like the Da Vinci, the Ender 3 also has one as an add-on but I believe the quality isn't of much use...

If you have a Microsoft Kinect [£10ish], you already have all the parts for an average or better 3D scanner. You now just need scanning software:

i.materialise.com/blo…er/
skanect.occipital.com/
instructables.com/id/…er/



You could even 3D print a rotating scanning platform for your mobile and use that to scan small objects...

Anyway I hope you will find 3D printers as enjoyable as I did.

What do you use it for? Very intrigued!

It’s a CR10 inspired printer, closest is the newer CR10S as that has dual z axis ....was just about to pull them trigger on the cr10 but need to revisit that now, thanks OP, I think!

Me too. I've always liked the idea of 3D printers and they're now at a price where I can afford to buy a decent one but struggling to think what practical use I'd have for it.
After your overheads (plastic material/ebay & paypal fees etc) is there good opportunity to make money with these things?

There's plenty of people selling 3D printed stuff on Ebay and Etsy, can't imagine you'd make a living out of it though.

Make that a harem and I am in!
Purchased this instead of the creality 10s ....aesthetics mainly , it’s a fairly new printer so not much of a community but what I see so far is good....both printers have ‘niggles’ for sure but the significantly smaller footprint of the wanhao printer outweighs anything else for me.....also direct extruded seems to be a fair upgrade over the Bowden found in standard printers...should be much better for esoteric filaments!!

Right - but the smaller one was suggested as being the better buy. I'm just wondering why - is it just the price is more "testing the waters" friendly?
I am interested in scanning a couple of objects so I can modify it .

Please can I have an idea on what detailed scanner to buy for this ?

thanks

It isn't a like for like comparison just someone's recommendation and not a bad one if you want a smaller unit. Bang for buck the Ender 3 is pretty good value although if you check the smaller Wanhao's they are also fairly well rated albeit not quite as cheap as you can get the Ender 3. All will have compromises at these price brackets which is to be expected.

Direct drive extruder should work great with flexible filaments, shame it hasn't got an Ultrabase-type bed.
Great if you want to takes ages to learn how to use something to make things you can buy cheaper elsewhere. :-)

There are printers with in-built scanners?? I bet they must cost thousands!
I'm still fairly new to 3D printing, about 6 months in.
I have the CR-10S and two BIQU Magician printers.
One of my first prints was the 3D scanner - You can check my 3D printing thread HERE
Although I have completed he print for the scanner, I have yet to use it properly with some software...a big learning curve for me, thats for sure!

I have a bank of Wanhao Duplicator I3 Plus v2s that I use for produce context in architectural models. Wanhao printers are great value but be prepared to get your hands dirty if you want stellar results out of them. One of my five i3s arrived with a faulty bed sensor that was a nightmare to diagnose and required the purchase of a replacement to get it working. You'd also be well off printing some TUSHs and ducting for a part cooling fan.

Oh and calibration cubes are a waste of time, don't print them.

Sorry but you are mistaken. While there are mass produced things that will be cheaper, anything else is probably made at a lower cost on a 3D printer. A spool of 1.75mm PLA filament has around 330 meters and weights 1kg. That will last you a long time unless you plan on making things 100% solid. I generally use 20% infill and often go down to 5%. Apart from PLA, you can use othet materials like nylon, ABS, PETG (elastic bendy things anyone?) or even wood and metal like filaments. The actual cost apart from time and electricity is pennies as a meter of filament costing around 20GBP a spool will cost about 6p. So a wall mount for an Amazon Echo Dot will cost around 1GBP at most, in the colour, design and, filament type you desire. Mass produced? Not really an option...

Are there customs charges to add to that?
