Good software for user, Ease of Use

In order to improve performance, suggest to add HBP (Heated Build Plate) .

Upgrading to the latest version Extruder is very important if you 're using old verision Extruder. 

Besides, PolyPlus PLA material from PolyMaker is the best materials working with Z18 after comparing among some PLA materials.

Don't buy this printer for is quality print part and that print speed. But for the size of your print part. For is reliability it's not the best, but is really better than 2-3 years. We updating the cheap plastic build plate for a glass heat bed and whit that we same time, because we don't need raft and builtTak tape.

We love it!

Our students are printing out some neat stuff using the iPads and programs like tinker cad. Our students are learning to design process and thinking skills it takes to make things happen.

I recommend this printer to others.

Though expensive to buy, but i am satisfied with the qualities of the prints. Also easy to maintain, i.e. replacing a spool or the print head.

Never worked

It was the worst thing I ever purchased - it never worked,  the software was out of date and no other was available.  I never received any replies from my inquires.  It became a very expensive mistake.  Do not buy.  We had really looked forward to 3 D printing and saved up to purchase this machine.
