Great printer . I received my machine today in prefect condition and the instructions were very simple and straight forward . I was up and printing in about ten minutes without too many problems . I did have a couple of small issues . The print nozzles are not perfectly aligned so one side is higher then the other (I will have to figure out how to adjust these ) and the wires going to the print heads seem to have been run incorrectly and are getting in the way I will rerun them after the first print is done . It’s printing currently and is showing no problems . The back fans that are for printing pla are very loud so just be prepaired but I am very happy that they included them . It also come with a small tool kit box too keep all of your extras in and spare print sheets that resemble Build Tak . It’s a very fast printer and is very sturdy . Anyone who has never tried printing before can run the dreamer in my opinion . . In the packaging you will receive the printer the quick start guide tools of every type a few spare system parts such as a spare but for bed leveling a packet of grease for maintenance a few extra bolts and several replacement sheets . The tool kit also comes with some tweezers a scalpel and a putty knife for removing prints . It will come with two rolls of Pla filament that are smaller then standard bulk filament . I believe they are .5 kg rolls . In order to use bulk filament you will need to print some new spill holders possible external . The user interface will allow you to load and unload filament level your bed print from an sd card and it appears to have internal storage as well . For those of you that use simplify 3D this will work with it . The printer seems to resemble a microwave as my son calls it and will look professional in your office . It’s made primarily from plastic so make sure your not going to have any worries of getting bumped off . The front door on this model is clear and not frosted like In the pictures and I am very happy that it is . I can see the prints without opening the door . I think these printers can be stacked if you have more then one so you can keep your space use down to a minimum . The included sd card comes with all the files needed to operate the printer and has several sample prints on it for testing . The maual comes in Chinese and English but no other language so for the that speak French Spanish etc you will need to view the user guide online with translate . The touch display on this machine is very very responsive and looks very nice the screen appears to be HD and has a good color to it and decent viewing angles . The lid on the printer snaps on and is easily removable .. the printer is not set by default to 110 V like we use in the USA so remember to check underneath and verify yours is set to the correct voltage for your country you can do this by lifting the machine sideways taking the putty knife and using its reflection to see where it is set at and the switch just slides one way or the other . I have not needed to contact support yet but from what I hear they are pretty easy to deal with . The card says to contact the seller about support but I am not sure who you would talk to on overstock . Overall I think this is a great machine and the money seems well placed for the price . I recommend this printer highly and will invest in more of them in the future

My son, created his first piece last night. He is very interested in 3-D Printing and Carbon Fibre, so between this and a Carbon Fibre set we are hopping to encourage him for his love of advancing technology, and encourage his dreams for technology knowledge. His first piece looks like a link used in PVS pipes, impressive and intriguing to watch. I recommend ordering different colors, I picked up threads locally, be aware you need proper thread for proper heat and shapes needed. I am still waiting on threads ordered through Overstock, again delays have been blamed on environmental fires out west (bless them all.) Hopefully in the future we will see a new color and piece he sculpts. My son is 16, so I highly recommend this for all ages, but definitely someone who has a love for technology. :)
East to set up. East to operate.
