The Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer lives up to it’s name. It is small. It will fit on any desk, yet it is capable enough to build a huge variety of 3D prints.
The very interesting thing about the Monoprice Select Mini is that even with its small footprint it still allows you to use almost all 1.75mm filament types. Thus you can build one model in PLA, the next in ABS then another in a metal composite. Don’t forget you could also use wood composite or dis-solvable PVA as well.
The Select Mini 3D printer from Monoprice is compatible with a number of software packages common to 3D printing. Cura, Repetier and others can be used to power your designs. Connect to Windows or Mac OSX and use MicroSD or a MicroUSB connection.
Now this is really cool… the Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer comes ready to print right out of the box! Yep, take it out of the box, put it on your desk, plug it in, and you can be printing right away using the 3D models that are included on the SD card that comes with the printer. You cannot beat that for setup time!
This is all possible because they calibrate the printer at the factory before it’s boxed up. So when you get it, it’s all ready to run.
With Monoprices’ 1 year replacement warranty, I therefore think you should have a serious look at the Select Mini reviews on Amazon.
