i3 PLUS V2 additions from the older model:
Self-adjusting auto level build platform
- While printing the printer scans the distance from the nozzle to the bed, if the distance has become uneven the software will automatically account for the change in gap on the fly, while printing. This means even more successful prints.
Power cut auto resume
- If the power trips temporarily for a moment while printing, the printer will continue to print where it stopped, meaning less downtime.
Upgraded hot end
- A full metal hot end has been added to keep more heat in and allow the hot end to be heated to a high temperature to open up the opportunity to print with more filament types.
This PLUS model is the ultimate i3 printer. We have taken the success of our i3 V2.1 and then advanced this by adding the control box into the printer base itself, then adding a Wanhao touch screen for fingertip control of your printer. Also for easy loading, we have now added a full-size SD card slot to make printing that little bit easier. We feel we really have produced the best i3 design on the market and all at an unbelievably low price.
The Duplicator i3 Plus V2 printer is the latest offering from Wanhao. Designed on and around the new Prusa i3 machines, this printer comes with all the up-to-date features and more. This is our entry level printer which arrives fully assembled straight out of the box and calibrated ready to print. Unlike most other Prusa models available it comes with custom electronics housing, now integrated into the body included as well as the metal stamped filament stand. Whether you are starting out with 3D printing or just want a smaller more compact machine this is the ideal all in one package. The i3 cannot be beaten for features, quality and value.
Why buy the i3 Plus V2?
The i3’s frame is made from steel for improved strength and rigidity, which keeps the axis’ tight and printing resolution at its finest. We have also fitted an MK10 extruder for the best performance, reliability and because we know the MK10 works exceptionally well. The print bed is also heated as standard thus allowing more filament choices to print with as well as giving better results. Included with the printer is the electronic controller and housing, also made from steel, along with the filament spool mount. The housing is where the controller sits with LCD screen and twist button controls. We have included a micro SD slot for your designs as well as the usual USB connection. All these features brought together with great design are what make this machine such a great buy. Perfect for beginners or experts at an unbeatable price of less than most unassembled lesser versions!
