Wanhao i3 Plus Mark 2 – Accurate plug&play 3D printer
This is a new and improved version of one of the most popular 3D printers ever, the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus Mark2. It is a good-value plug&play FFF 3D printer. Furthermore, it provides you a unique user experience with an easy set up and good manufacturing results. Buy this 3D printer if you need an auto-leveling device.
For you we introduce the i3 Plus MK2.
The Wanhao i3 Plus MK2 includes
New auto levelling system
No longer do you have to worry about levelling your build plate. The Wanhao Duplicator i3 MK2 helps you by measuring the distance between the build surface and the nozzle. Should the build surface for some reason be uneven the software calculates what the right height should be and adjusts the 3D print accordingly.
Resume 3D print
If, for some reason, there should be a loss of power to the 3D printer. It will go into pause mode and resume the 3D print when the power is back. This is significant improvement compared to the previous version. It means that you no longer must worry about failed 3D prints after a power loss.
Removable 3D print surface
The new improved building surface is attached to the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus Mark 2 with a magnetic surface. This means that you can easily remove the whole print surface and bend it slightly. The finished parts will just pop of without the hassle of using sharp instruments to remove your object.
All through Wanhao has improved the different components of this machine to make the MK2 more stable and reliable to work with.
Enhanced ease-of-use experience
The MK1 was already easy to use. Its follower, MK2 has taken it one step further. The whole user experience is now very intuitive and easy to use. Everything is presented on the large touch display. Even if you never used a 3D printer before, the step-by-step instructions will make handling this manufacturing machine a breeze.
New MK10 All-Metal direct drive extruder and hot-end
The Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus Mark 2 has been fitted with the latest version of the well-known MK10 hot-end. This opens new possibilities for you as a user as you are no longer restricted to low-temp materials. The hot-end is now capable of reaching temperatures of 300°C (all metal hot-end included as option in the package).
The slicer software Simplify3D is one of the most popular tools on the market today. Worldwide known for its ease-of-use. If needed you can go deeper than ever before to tamper with every setting you can think of. Simplify3D gives you freedom to really manage your 3D prints as you like.
When you add these upgrades to the “old” version you have a machine that is very capable of handling most of you needs.
We suggest that you start 3D printing with PLA. It is by far the most user-friendly filament you can find. If you choose PrimaSELECT, PrimaVALUE or PrimaEasyPrint PLA you don´t have to worry about dangerous fumes or irritating smells. When you are ready you can move on to PETG or even more exotic filaments like wood or metal. For smaller 3D prints you can even use ABS or ABS+.
The MK2 has a large display for trouble-free operation and all the electronics are integrated in the main structure unlike many other 3D printers in this segment that has a separate control box. Having the electronics integrated saves a lot of space. The build volume of 200 x 200 x 180 mm is more than enough for most users. The frame is made of metal which makes for a very sturdy and stable platform.
The Wanhao i3 Plus MK2 is one of the most affordable 3D printers on the market today. It is very hard to beat when it comes to price-performance-ratio.
