abunda_amazon_reviews I was waiting for the Taz 7 to be released since it has been a year and a half since the Taz 6. I decided to get a "cheap" printer instead but I am glad I chose this one. I had the machine together in about 20 minutes including unboxing. Put the machine on a flat surface and the tower will sort of self align (use a right angle to make sure it is 90 degrees), put the four screws in, connect the motor cables (which are labeled!) and DO NOT forget to connect the black ribbon cable from the extruder to the base! (The manual does not mention this). I leveled the Z axis by spinning the motor shafts until I could loosely wiggle a circuit board under each side. The initial height does not matter, only that the rods are level. Tighten EVERYTHING including the set screws on the X axis rods. Mine came loose and my Z axis would not home. If you are having Z axis issues unscrew the belt, loosen the X axis rods then wiggle them to realign them then put everything back together. To level the bed, home the Z axis with the four screws on the bed at the lowest position (so it does not strike the bed). Use the Tools -> Move command to place the nozzle at the four corners of the black print surface. Use a business card inbetween the nozzle and the bed then turn the screw until you just feel friction on the business card. The built in home function misses the back left corner for some reason. Loading filament is easy, just cut a small piece off at 45 degrees to prevent clogs, place the filament into the extruder by pressing the black lever until it stops. Use the load filament command until a little filament oozes out. Unloading is pretty similar, heat it up and use the unload command to remove it. The included sd card includes a few models and I was able to just barely print 3 of them with the included sample filament. I think they are set to be high precision to impress the user - they take about 2-3 hours to print but do come out very well. I am using Solidworks to generate my STL files but you may want to head over to Thingiverse to grab some premade stuff. This is where the fun begins - slicing. There are several slicers in free, freemium, online, and paid. I prefer Cura since it is simple and works. Slic3r is a good alternative. If you have a Raspberry Pi then you can try Octoprint (Incredibly easy to get running by the way). There is also Simplify3D but I do not recommend it since it cost $150 for two installations and requires you to log in to use the desktop program (good luck when their servers go down). Slicers are a whole different topic but if you chose Cura, you can use the Prusa i3 (which this unit is based off of) or you can add your own printer and specify a 200x200 and 180 height bed with a 0.4mm nozzle and 1.75mm filament with a rectangle bed that is heated. The included Cura version on the SD card is outdated and I believe you can import the included gcode to generate a modern cura profile. Once you are confident in the machine then find a better Spool holder, filament cooling fan shroud, Z axis brace then your prints will turn out much better. The stock spool holder can jerk when feeding and cause Z axis artifacts while the stock filament fan shroud isn't directed enough. After those mods then you can start looking into adding a better Y axis plate, different print surfaces, and so on. The Select Plus is a 24v model, so if you upgrade the fan then be sure to use a 24v fan. You might also have to perform searches for the Wanhao duplicator i3 to find upgrade parts. This machine is for tinkerer's so I did not mind having to play around with the X axis rods and can't count that against the machine. I did contact Monoprice support via their website chat and they told me they would send a replacement but I needed to do it though Amazon. I sent them an email but have not heard a response (it has been almost a week). The print quality out of the box is great, it has a large build surface, and was very easy to get running (including with octopi). Overall I think this is a great printer for the price range. It does not have the fancy features like auto leveling or dual extruders but this will satisfy the average hobbyist needs.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Tighten all of the screws and don't forget the extruder cable!!;;Jack;;;I have only had this printer about a week, so if I come up with any other tips, based upon my experiences with this printer, I’ll add them to this review. I am pleased with the items I have printed, so far. This printer seems to be doing a good job. This printer is the same as the Wanhao i3 Plus, so if you need to find resources, this is the printer to look for. I am a newbie to 3D printing, so my comments are based upon my very limited knowledge of how this works. A couple of other items that a newbie needs to purchase: 1st, You should purchase PTFE Tube. The one I purchased was PTFE Teflon Bowden Tube for 1.75 Filament (2.0mm ID/4.0mm OD) - 1.5 Meters and it worked fine. The PTFE tube is attached to your Brass Nozzle to guide filament into the nozzle and can become plugged very easily with newbie mistakes. 2nd, Purchase some brass .4mm nozzles. My nozzle became clogged and I could not find a way to easily remove the clog. Another newbie problem. The ones I purchased were BIQU MK10 M7 0.4mm Extruder Brass Nozzle Print Head for Makerbot 2 RepRap 1.75mm Filament 3D Printer (Pack of 5pcs). 3rd Item to consider purchasing is a pack of .4mm drill bits. These are used to clear clogs in the nozzle and they break very easily. One is included with the printer, but I broke it very early in my venture. The ones I purchased were: JOYSA 5PCS 0.4mm Drill Bits for 3D MakerBot Printer Nozzle Cleaning Kit BY JOYSA US Registered Brand. With those items close at hand, you should be able to print continuously without waiting for the next package to arrive. Also, if you are new to this craft, search the web for pointers on 3D printing. There is a lot of information out there on this printer, so take advantage of it as it will allow you to bypass many beginner mistakes. In regards to the printer, it comes mostly assembled with only a few parts to attach to complete the assembly. The manual seems to be outdated as some of the included pictures and guidance did not fit the printer that I received. I went to the internet for guidance on some of these issues. One thing to look for during your printing is that the nozzle temperature is properly set. Many times when I preheat for PLA, the temp will rise as it should, but when I select an item to print from the included SD card, the target temp will go to zero. When I see this happening, I go back to pre-heat, select PLA, again and return to the print screen. Most times the target temp is now correctly identified. A couple times I have had to turn the printer off and back on to get the print temperature to be identified properly. Not a big issue, but when the target temp is zero, that is what the printer head is striving to reach. I am pleased with the product and the printing that it is capable of doing.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 6, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;A good 3D printer;;RogerR2;;;Ok so I'm a noob when it comes to 3d Printers, but trust me when I say this, I'm no noob when it comes to building things to specification. They claim 10 minutes, but what's not discussed is a level, and a means to judge 1mm. I used a normal 6' level and feeler gauges mainly used to measure spark plug gap. The device says to level the platform by 1mm, I found using a regular A1 sheet of Paper, normal American paper for those who never traveled outside the USA. Took me 3 days to finally get this thing level and working pristine. But once I got it, she was OFF, no mistakes, no issues so far. Double check your level, 2 or 3 times, and do small prints to judge what you need to change and where. There are 3d Print files for modification parts, ie adjustable legs, Z-Axis supports. You can also find a more sturdier build plate. The main issue I had with mine was leveling the build plate, one corner will be completely compressed, and the other 3 would be completely free from the screws. I Raised the Y-Axis stopper switch from the 4th hole to the 3rd hole, adjusted the Z-Axis up, and re-leveled only the bed adjust screws, and pow, done. Make sure your bed is warm when you print, if you have raised edges your bed is too cold, warming it up will keep those edges from curving and messing up your print.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Had for less than a Week;;Walter Moore

I am using Solidworks to generate my STL files but you may want to head over to Thingiverse to grab some premade stuff. This is where the fun begins - slicing. There are several slicers in free, freemium, online, and paid. I prefer Cura since it is simple and works. Slic3r is a good alternative. If you have a Raspberry Pi then you can try Octoprint (Incredibly easy to get running by the way). There is also Simplify3D but I do not recommend it since it cost $150 for two installations and requires you to log in to use the desktop program (good luck when their servers go down). Slicers are a whole different topic but if you chose Cura, you can use the Prusa i3 (which this unit is based off of) or you can add your own printer and specify a 200x200 and 180 height bed with a 0.4mm nozzle and 1.75mm filament with a rectangle bed that is heated. The included Cura version on the SD card is outdated and I believe you can import the included gcode to generate a modern cura profile. Once you are confident in the machine then find a better Spool holder, filament cooling fan shroud, Z axis brace then your prints will turn out much better. The stock spool holder can jerk when feeding and cause Z axis artifacts while the stock filament fan shroud isn't directed enough. After those mods then you can start looking into adding a better Y axis plate, different print surfaces, and so on. The Select Plus is a 24v model, so if you upgrade the fan then be sure to use a 24v fan. You might also have to perform searches for the Wanhao duplicator i3 to find upgrade parts. This machine is for tinkerer's so I did not mind having to play around with the X axis rods and can't count that against the machine. I did contact Monoprice support via their website chat and they told me they would send a replacement but I needed to do it though Amazon. I sent them an email but have not heard a response (it has been almost a week). The print quality out of the box is great, it has a large build surface, and was very easy to get running (including with octopi). Overall I think this is a great printer for the price range. It does not have the fancy features like auto leveling or dual extruders but this will satisfy the average hobbyist needs.

A good 3D printer
I have only had this printer about a week, so if I come up with any other tips, based upon my experiences with this printer, I’ll add them to this review. I am pleased with the items I have printed, so far. This printer seems to be doing a good job. This printer is the same as the Wanhao i3 Plus, so if you need to find resources, this is the printer to look for. I am a newbie to 3D printing, so my comments are based upon my very limited knowledge of how this works. A couple of other items that a newbie needs to purchase: 1st, You should purchase PTFE Tube. The one I purchased was PTFE Teflon Bowden Tube for 1.75 Filament (2.0mm ID/4.0mm OD) - 1.5 Meters and it worked fine. The PTFE tube is attached to your Brass Nozzle to guide filament into the nozzle and can become plugged very easily with newbie mistakes. 2nd, Purchase some brass .4mm nozzles. My nozzle became clogged and I could not find a way to easily remove the clog. Another newbie problem. The ones I purchased were BIQU MK10 M7 0.4mm Extruder Brass Nozzle Print Head for Makerbot 2 RepRap 1.75mm Filament 3D Printer (Pack of 5pcs). 3rd Item to consider purchasing is a pack of .4mm drill bits. These are used to clear clogs in the nozzle and they break very easily. One is included with the printer, but I broke it very early in my venture. The ones I purchased were: JOYSA 5PCS 0.4mm Drill Bits for 3D MakerBot Printer Nozzle Cleaning Kit BY JOYSA US Registered Brand. With those items close at hand, you should be able to print continuously without waiting for the next package to arrive. Also, if you are new to this craft, search the web for pointers on 3D printing. There is a lot of information out there on this printer, so take advantage of it as it will allow you to bypass many beginner mistakes. In regards to the printer, it comes mostly assembled with only a few parts to attach to complete the assembly. The manual seems to be outdated as some of the included pictures and guidance did not fit the printer that I received. I went to the internet for guidance on some of these issues. One thing to look for during your printing is that the nozzle temperature is properly set. Many times when I preheat for PLA, the temp will rise as it should, but when I select an item to print from the included SD card, the target temp will go to zero. When I see this happening, I go back to pre-heat, select PLA, again and return to the print screen. Most times the target temp is now correctly identified. A couple times I have had to turn the printer off and back on to get the print temperature to be identified properly. Not a big issue, but when the target temp is zero, that is what the printer head is striving to reach. I am pleased with the product and the printing that it is capable of doing.

Had for less than a Week
Ok so I'm a noob when it comes to 3d Printers, but trust me when I say this, I'm no noob when it comes to building things to specification. They claim 10 minutes, but what's not discussed is a level, and a means to judge 1mm. I used a normal 6' level and feeler gauges mainly used to measure spark plug gap. The device says to level the platform by 1mm, I found using a regular A1 sheet of Paper, normal American paper for those who never traveled outside the USA. Took me 3 days to finally get this thing level and working pristine. But once I got it, she was OFF, no mistakes, no issues so far. Double check your level, 2 or 3 times, and do small prints to judge what you need to change and where. There are 3d Print files for modification parts, ie adjustable legs, Z-Axis supports. You can also find a more sturdier build plate. The main issue I had with mine was leveling the build plate, one corner will be completely compressed, and the other 3 would be completely free from the screws. I Raised the Y-Axis stopper switch from the 4th hole to the 3rd hole, adjusted the Z-Axis up, and re-leveled only the bed adjust screws, and pow, done. Make sure your bed is warm when you print, if you have raised edges your bed is too cold, warming it up will keep those edges from curving and messing up your print.
