Once customized, it's fantastic

it can be heavy customized, the community support is great.

There's a list of must-have parts, once you have it, quality is high and definitely a pleasure to use.

The must have are:

- Z brace (to make the z axis more stiff)

- All metal extruder

- 3 points levelling

- A better cooling duct

It might be tuned a bit, especially for accelerations and temperature controls.

Anyway, this is definitely a good machine.

A pretty good printer

You sometimes have to really tweak your slicer to get the best result, I think thats with all 3D printers ;)

A good Printer for engineering users

I have This printer for 3 years . I made all the upgrades and all modifications that make this printer a very good printer .

Solid printer with good results

if you are looking for an entry level printer, with a solid build and upgrade potential ,then you can’t go wrong with this one. The only gripe I have is having to level the bed quite often but this can be modified quite simply. Once you get the hang of your slicing software, the print quality is very good. I print mechanical parts and the tolerances are very good. Once you’ve done all the mods, like me, this is one great printer. Thumbs up from me.

Great entry level 3D printer

200x200 build volume with a heated bed for just over $200.  It does fine, and for that price with those features that's pretty stinking awesome.  There are better 3D printers, but if all you have is $200, I'd go with this over anything else that doesn't have a 200x200 build plate or a heated bed.

You get what you pay for - a great printer for newbies

This Wanhao I3 mini is a really cheap and sturdy little machine. It has it's limitations but for getting into the mood of 3D printing it is a great machine. Within minutes you can set it up and let it run. It produces OK quality prints w/o any tweaking and for sure you can make things even better with a little experimenting with the settings. I have been printing with it for 2 years now and nothing went wrong yet. One of the internal fans would need to be changed as it became super loud but other than that it's perfect still!

Build size is 150x150x100mm as it is the MINI!

The Wanhao Duplicator i3 mini 3D printer is a compact device that is suitable for use at home. The main advantage of the printer – you will be able to appreciate its functionality immediately after unpacking, because it is almost assembled. The speed of building various objects is 70 mm/s. Wanhao Duplicator i3 mini is compatible with various operating systems – Windows, MAC, Linux. In the kit you will find a starting set of plastic, as well as a spatula for subsequent removal of finished copies.

Great results 3D printer

When you know how everything works you will be happy with this 3D printer. Only I have a problem thats not be change with a replacement of the printplaten. The solution WAS to replace it with a new printer, and the name is Balco the same as the Wanhao Duplicator i3 a name changing but all is the same. Now perfect prints with Cura. Recommend this 3D printer. HAVE FUN.
