The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus MK2 is the latest model of the i3 series of 3D Printers, and offers all of the features that made the Duplicator i3 Plus so popular, as well as a few more features that add printing convenience, improve on electronics, and ultimately enhance ease-of-use and functionality. Following in line with many of the other latest iterations like the Duplicator 6 Plus, it has a print resume function, an automatic bed levelling system, as well as an all-metal hotend for higher printing temperatures. These features all culminate into one of the best printers within this price range.

Another fantastic aspect about these printers is how they save room for a variety of different upgrades and mods, making it a real delight for Makers who like to tinker, experiment and make each product uniquely their own. However, even without extra additions and mods, this printer is more than capable of catering to every need of a 3D Maker, with a core focus on 3D Printing quality, as well as ease-of-use for both beginners and veterans alike.

Typical Applications for the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus MK2:

The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus MK2 is an excellent investment for a Maker of any skill level, and can either be used to learn, experiment and tinker with, or can be used for quality prints that don’t require any mods or alterations to the machine. It is user-friendly in almost every aspect, and its core focus is on delivering great results from the get-go.

This latest i3 Plus MK2 model also improves on a few areas where the original i3 Plus was slightly lacklustre, with minor improvements to the Electronics to make the machines safer and more efficient, as well as quality-of-life features like the auto-pause/resume and auto-bed levelling functions. This makes it a great entry level printer, although it could also be considered as more of an upgrade for Makers who enjoyed the original i3 and i3 Plus, but are now looking for a better model with the latest upgrades and features.

Great starter printer

Out of the box it took minimal calibration to get some decent prints out of it. A couple of self printed mods and some tweaking later and printing good quality models is as simple as popping the gcode on an SD card and pressing print.

Write a review

Wanhao have been supplying 3D Printers internationally since as early as 2012, and have rapidly garnered a world-renowned reputation for quality machines, parts and components. After originally banding together as a group of friends and purchasing a Makerbot Thing-O-Matic, they created their own “Duplicator 1” 3D Printer, which was essentially a replica of the Thing-O-Matic, with slight modifications and alterations to make it better suit typical users.


Wanhao’s strengths have always stemmed from the fact that they are both 3D Makers and 3D Printer Manufacturers, which allows them to understand the needs of the end user when developing new models or upgrades. It is the same reason why they always make sure to stock spares of all of the different parts and components, because they believe that you should never have to buy an entirely new printer if one part breaks, and should instead be able to simply replace whichever part is broken.


There are few 3D Printing manufacturers with as much experience and reputation as Wanhao, which is why we have chosen them as one of our top suppliers here at DIYElectronics. Not only do they continue to bring out exciting new models and upgrades for existing models, but they also align with our own company culture and values by proactively supplying all of the spare parts that customers might need – so that you, as an end user, never have to source spares or alternatives if you have problems with faulty or broken parts throughout the lifespan of your 3D Printer.
