More info

3D printing is such an exciting technology that, over the past few years, has finally become accessible to non-professionals and hobbyists. However, since the technology is still relatively early in development, not everyone can justify the cost of some of the higher-end 3D Printer models. This is why we have made it our mission to source a quality entry-level printer – The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Mini – for hobbyists and Makers who want to try their hand at 3D Printing, without having to invest more than they’re comfortable with.

The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Mini comes almost entirely assembled, with very little tinkering or assembly required. From taking it out of the box, all you have to do to get it ready to print is to screw the spool holder onto the side of the machine, and then follow the simple on-board guide to levelling the bed with the tension springs on each corner. After these simple steps, the printer will be ready to accept STL files and fabricate almost any 3D model that you can imagine, from basic items like drinks coasters and decorations, all the way through to complex jewellery and 3D art.

Despite the extremely affordable price, the Duplicator i3 Mini comes with a surprising amount of features to help improve print quality, with an easy-to-use interface and a build volume of 120x135x100mm. This makes it ideal for beginners who want to learn about 3D printing, as well as for school or university workshops to help students get a head-start in modern desktop fabrication technologies.

Typical Applications for the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Mini:

The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Mini is the ultimate 3D printer for students and beginners who want to try out 3D printing before investing in a higher-end model. It is an excellent entry-point printer that is simple to operate, making it great for learning about STL files and G-Code, proper 3D printer software and settings, as well as the capabilities of modern desktop fabrication technologies. And while it may not have all of the fancy features like the Wanhao Duplicator 6, or the massive build volume of the Creality CR-10 S5, it is ideal for applications like:

  • Equipping a design or technology classroom with a desktop fabricator for kids or university students to utilise and learn from.
  • Installing a personal fabricator within a workshop or office to rapidly build 3D designs and prototypes before moving onto large-scale manufacturing.
  • Buying a basic 3D printer for a tech-minded individual, so that they can learn about desktop fabrication and discover their passion for 3D Making before investing in a high-end model.

The reason why we recommend these 3D Printers for students, kids or anyone who is eager to learn about 3D fabrication is because they strike the perfect balance between reliable 3D printing capabilities and ease-of-use. In fact, as long as you can follow basic instructions and are capable of doing a bit of research online, you will definitely be able to start designing and printing your own 3D objects within about 15 minutes of opening the box.
