BEST ENTRY LEVEL 3D PRINTER IN 2018
This entry level Desktop 3D-Printer has a reasonable print size of 120x120x120 mm, which is decent enough, particularly given the price.
The P120 is equipped with a heated build plate which not all entry level 3D printers have and most experts in 3D printing will tell you this is essential for an FDM 3D printer to ensure the 3D print sticks to the build plate.
This printer can be used with a wide variety of 1.75mm filament types so you’ll have no issues finding great filament options for your printing needs.
What set’s this printer apart from other low cost 3D printers is that this printer is ready to use out of the box, fully assembled.
With the P120 PrimaCreator have concentrated their efforts on the daily use and not something you have to struggle with just to make it print. It should be fun and easy to print!
Features of the P120 PrimaCreator 3D printer
The P120 comes pre-assembled so that you can start printing right out of the box.
Easy to use
A clear and easy to navigate color display is placed in the front so you can monitor your work and have quick access to all settings.
The P120 is small and quiet which makes it perfect to have on your desktop.
The P120 has a print volume of 120x120x120 mm or 4.7″ x 4.7″ x 4.7″ inches. This size makes it a perfect printer for every-day use or as a second printer that you would like to keep close to you. Another area of use is for companies that would like to have a “printer park”
The P120 is equipped with a heated build plate. Thanks to the heated plate you can use a wider range of filaments and not risk that the print loses adhesion. From start you have a sheet of tape included and for even better performance we can recommend a BuildTak or PEI sheet.
To increase the usability even more there is a clear and crisp color display in the front that clearly shows you the status of the printer. Even better is that you also have Wi-Fi connectivity with a mobile app that works on Android smart phones. This means that you can start and monitor your print from a distance. You also have a USB connection and a MicroSD card for easy transfer of your files.
P120 have an open solution that means that you can use almost any filament you want, PLA, ABS (small prints), ABS+, PETG, HIPS and semi flexible filaments. P120 uses the common size of 1.75 mm filament that you can find almost everywhere, but Prima SELECT and Value are tested and works perfect with this printer.
P120 comes bundled with the well-known Cura slicer (printer software) that allows you to fine tune all your settings such as layer high, speed, temperature. Instructions are included so you quickly can get the hang of it and produce stunning prints.
