  1. I’ve never used a 3D printer before, but assembled it in minutes, installed software and calibrated easily and was printing a first 3D model within the hour… Seriously impressed! I don’t have much to compare it to, since it’s the first time I use a 3D printer – or even see one in action. But this is really amazing. Accurate, somewhat fast 3D prints, for very little money. Printed 4 models so far, and all came out great.

  2. This machine works quite well. And as my fellow Canadian friend says, it ships quite fast. The belt on the Y axis needed tightening. Got to print the first file on the flash drive supplied and all was nice. The side wall was brittle as if the layers did not stick properly to one another. I increased the temperature by 8 C and now I’m printing very strong parts. I had an issue with the extruder jamming and I replaced the barrel with one from An MK8 extruder which has a PTFE liner inside. Do not use the barrels that have a liner straight trough as they will not work. the liner will lift up and cause a jam. The MK8 barrel has a liner toward the hotend only. The printer has limit switches. Check your Z height before each job using the test sheet. The frame is surprisingly sturdy and once the Slicer settings are good, it prints very well. If your computer is hooked-up to the internet, it will ask you to update Slicer to the new stable version. Be careful and note where your printer, extruder and filament settings are before you do this. If you are not familiar with 3D printers, it is best to say no to the update as the printer works very well out the box. Look at the slicer tutorials on youtube so you can fine tune your printing preference to your liking and your needs. Best regards from Saint-Jerome Quebec. Luc

  3. I am new to the 3D printing world and this is a good introduction. I had the printer set up and printing within a couple of hours of receiving it. The manual is a little lacking but information is available online for the slc3r software. I would consider the print quality average at best as there are a lot of artifacts left over after printing. These can be reduced by playing with the parameters in the configuration; hence the need for the slc3r manual. The accuracy and resolution is variable due to the plastic construction. I notice the Z axis wobble a bit while it is moving due to the lead screws not supported at the top. The Z axis screws are imperial 13 TPI according to my pitch gauge, and this makes it impossible to set the layer thickness to a multiple of Z axis pitch so this is part of the cause for the artifacts on the Z axis. Overall this is a good starter machine for the price.

    I just got the printer, looks good but I don’t have/ find the software for IOS.
    Can someone help me with the software that it works with this printer?

    Thanks

    Awesome!! Just Awesome!! You can’t beat the price of this 3D Printer and the build size it has to offer. We have another higher end 3D printer that has been nothing but problems for me. I just gave up on it. Your printer out performs this other one and is so easy to setup and get printing. There are several users on Thingiverse that have modded your printer and make it even more precise. You might want to add some of their mods to your printer to make it even better!! I have it working with Octoprint and it just works!! I am so happy with my purchase that I let everyone I know where I got it and how much. For an entry level printer it’s fantastic!! Great for Schools and colorful!! Thanks for making such an incredible machine for home users and hobbyists. The prints coming out of this are amazing, once you dial in the settings.
    Thanks,
    Andy

  6. Bought just over a month ago and have had nothing but issues with it. Failed print after print, most of them are due to moving around on the bed, even with the painter’s tape. Now I have an issue of filament not being able to be fed into the extruder, even when the extruder is heated, and all I am told is to push more filament through it… how can I when I cant get any to start feeding, I am applying so much pressure trying to push the filament into it that I’m afraid that I am going to break something.

    I got this last weekend and got it together in a hour or so. Installed software on my computer, and started it all up. I couldn’t communicate with the printer. It would show it was connected, but I never had any control over it, like my cat. So was very frustrated the first night. This is the 6th 3d printer I have bought. 4 of them were returned for various reasons, and the other is awaiting an exchange so I can get a working printer. I loaded the software onto my sons laptop, yes he’s spoiled, and it worked first time. I leveled the plates fairly well, and tried a print. It came out pretty good, Adjusted a little and now prints out really nice prints, Not perfect yet, but I like them. I did a print that took 40 ours and it is almost flawless. This is the best damn 3d printer for any dollar. This should be in every classroom in the country, and I will be back to buy again. Get this printer and tell your friends about it too.

    The printer itself was fairly easy to assemble. I had put together a rapman 3.1 back in the day and that took several days while this DIY only took me about an hour of actual work and a little time to re-do some things I hadn’t gotten perfect the first time. I was frustrated that the provided Allen wrench to attach the left and right motors is just the size to make it nearly useless for putting in those screws. However, my biggest complaint is that the Z level somehow got screwed up, like it worked to print a g-code item from the flash drive and the next time I tried to print something, not from the flash drive, it tore the bed all up because the nozzle was too low. Hitting emergency stop in Repetier took a few moments and now my bed has some serious gashes. Very frustrated and disappointed with that.

    Still working on getting familar with the software but I would say you get what you paid for. My schools (I’m a teacher) computer wouldn’t allow me to select specific profiles for the Colido settings which may have led to the Z level problem but my home computer works with the software great. Perhaps with more practice I can avoid doing any more serious damage.

    Amazing printer!

    Firstly, I did not get this from Colido sorry guys. The printer is great and I have no real worries with it and, would recommend it to anyone that is after a 3D printer. The 4 Star rating is because of a few things I found with the printer that I sent an email about but have not got a reply to yet. I think Colido are missing an opportunity with this printer to offer a range of extras for but, people like me can see where there is room to upgrade this printer at a low price. This is something that nearly all printers miss out on but, this printer has the ability to have done to it. Don’t even think about those expensive printers, this is the only one that you will need.

    Great printer. My g/f got it for me for X-mas from Amazon and I’ve been printing with it almost non-stop ever since. It’s my first 3D printer. I had it built and running on my PC in less than an hour. My Macbook Pro took a bit more effort, research and tech support but I’ve got it working well now too and is my primary machine for operating the printer. I had a lot of trouble getting prints to stick but I’m figuring things out. I use 3M 2090 painter’s tape from Home Depot. It has a nice texture that works great with PLA after a good alcohol wipedown. Other 3M part numbers, say… from Lowe’s… don’t have the same texture so don’t bother. I set the nozzle with the included card, then I’ll go about half that distance lower and print the first layer or two at half speed at 205 degrees. After that, I let it rip!
    I screwed mine to a piece of 3/4″ MDF so it stays flat and level. Tech support has been more than helpful, even over the holidays. I got the heated bed for it today and I’ve found an LCD and control board for it to print directly from the SD card. This has been so much fun. One of the best presents ever! It ain’t perfect. It ignored and broke the Z limit switch off its tabs during one of the first Mac tests and the Mac Slicer files were not easy to find but tech support was there for me and I was able to bolt the switch back into place. No problems since. Looking forward to many empty spools of PLA.
