    The Monoprice feature packed MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2.

    The folks at Monoprice say that too often, getting a low-cost 3D printer can mean getting a box of ill-fitted parts with poorly written and incomplete documentation. You end up spending hours on the internet, searching forums and asking for help to get the printer assembled and operating properly. Monoprice operates differently and their MP Select Mini 3D Printer V2 is a perfect example! This 2nd generation model printer not only comes fully assembled, it has already been calibrated at the factory. All you have to do is perform a quick check to verify that the print bed is still leveled, in case it shifted during shipping, then load the included microSD card, load some filament, and start printing the preloaded model. Nowhere else will you find a 3D printer ready to print out of the box at such a low price! Other features include Insulated and heated built plate with pre-installed build mat, Nozzle cooling fan and main board cooling fan, and accessory kit with all-metal nozzle, Wi-Fi, microSD card, USB connectivity, and 3.7" IPS color screen. Tech Specs: 4.7" x 4.7" x 4.7" Build Area / Resolution: 100 microns (0.1mm) / Filament Diameter 1.75mm /Speed 55mm/sec / Connectivity Wi-Fi, microSD™ card, USB / Printable Materials ABS & PLA / Windows and Mac compatible. Compatible with Cura, Repetier, and other software $219.99. Watch the video of this week's show to learn a little about an even lower-priced 3-D Printer model coming August, 2017.
