The Wanhao Duplicator i3 PLUS is the 2016 latest addition to the well-known Duplicator family. The important stuff: Touch display MK10 single extruder Large build volume of 200 x 200 x 180 mm Compatible with SimpliFy3D Heated bed Integrated electronics With the enormous success of the i3 Wanhao has listened to their users and asked them what they wanted. The changes in the i3 PLUS reflects this work. The design as a whole is changed and the improvements are big and noticeable. First the electronic housing that is now integrated in the machine itself – this is a real space saver on your desktop. It also makes for less loose cables hanging around. Wanhao also integrated a 3; 25" touch screen. This makes the machine much easier to control and you also get a much better overview of the status. The micro SD card has been changed to a normal size SD card for easy handling. On the SD card you will also find the software; in this case it´s the CURA Wanhao edition that is include. Easy to work with but still powerful enough to be used for both beginners and professionals.

My initial prints were a little rough, but within a day, I had done the same as Mark S, replacing the bed bearings. I first tried new LM8LUU bearings, but found them to be as noisy and rattly, so tried some nylon ones that I had ordered at the same time as the printer (Igus® Drylin® RJ4JP-01-08 8mm Linear Bearing from a popular auction site), which fixed the noise, vibration issue completely. I also had fun printing the Z axis supports, noise dampeners and replacement cooler from Thingiverse, steepening my learning curve.
The bed leveling is a bit fiddly and frustrating. To save false starts and frustration, I decided to print pretty much everything on rafts, which seem to compensate for my shoddy leveling efforts, just takes a bit longer to print.
The printing software is supplied on the SD card is Cura, which is pretty straight forward for preparing 3d files for printing. So far, I find that printing at 195° with a 60° bed temp seems to stop my larger PLA prints from warping. I keep away from ABS, as it's too stinky, and I'm sure isn't healthy to be near while printing.
For £400, I can't believe the quality of the prints that this machine produces. The more I use it, the smoother the prints seem to become, even with cheapy filament.
One thing though; I read several forum posts suggesting wiping the film on the print bed with 100% acetone, to help prints stick better. I tried this, which pretty much destroyed the first bed sticker that came with the printer. Luckily Wanhao provided a spare in the box. I just wipe with it with methylated spirit now.
The only slight negative mark I can give this machine is due to the bearings under the print bed being quite noisy, they also produce vibration which can make the print quality slightly rougher, it was however very easy to replace these bearings and there is even a video on Youtube from Wanhaousa that guides you through the process, it's literally a 10 minute job. Once the bearings are replaced the machine is very quiet and a real joy to use.
Ultimately if you don't mind a little mucking around to get the most out of your machine this is a great product, good value for money and well worth the investment, I'd reccomend it to anybody.
So far I've used the sample filament included, to print several small items, such as the Wanhao sample file of a hand and also some items from the internet (from thingiverse), and I'm really satisfied with the quality of them. Not everything prints perfectly though, but I think that it could be just the fine tuning of the printer's settings that's needed, or even the temperature of the room.
Providing enough trouble is taken to set up the printer, such as levelling the bed, it can produce good quality prints. They do have a texture to them, which looks OK, but they can be sanded and painted if required.
Even though I haven't seen another printer to compare it with, I think I've bought the right one and would recommend it.
