Great quality printer, if you give it some love!

9.8 / 10

Amazing product for the price, very quiet, very accurate when tuned properly

6.4 / 10

It's a great bang for the buck but i do prefer my Prusa i3 more than the Di3. Bed leveling is a pain and need to be done every 5 print, no Z probe adjustment, not sturdy (needed to print a part to make it really stiff).

9.2 / 10

I have had a great experience with my Duplicator I3. No major issues with it. It was easy to upgrade for even better functionality because it is open source based and the software is what I prefer to use. Great machine overall!

Great value printer, Solid build.

9.1 / 10

Excellent value printer that is perfectly usable out of the box, but benefits greatly from a handful of easy upgrades.

8.8 / 10

Great printer for the value. Utilizes open source design with very good build quality. Definitely takes some time and effort to master, but worth it for the price in my opinion.

7.7 / 10

It's a great printer for its price with a few upgrades the quality really goes up. A lot of those upgrades should just come with it since they cost about $30 in materials to get them.

8.2 / 10

Great printer for the money, large build volume, steel frame.

6.8 / 10

You get what you pay for. Corners will have to be cut for the price, but overall a solid machine to learn on. Sadly I have had no luck with customer service honoring any part of their warranty, so if you're not ready to tinker you might need to pass.

9.1 / 10

The duplicator i3 may be the best printer you can get for the money. It is extremely precise when properly set up. It has minor issues but the factory corrects problems so quickly they don't exist in newer revisions. 10/10 would recommend
