PS:126 – Wanhao Sadness

When I started out on the idea of getting a 3D Printer I read reviews, I looked around, wanted a good balance in price/quality/build area – and the reviews from most were the Wanhao Duplicator i3 was the go to printer; it had price, quality, and decent build area compared to others.

Sadly so far my own review is not fairing so well. I’ve hit just about every problem imaginable, I’ve tried throwing a few fixes folks say but then you run into the discussions where one group say “It’s this” and another say “Oh it’s that” personally? I’m starting to think it’s a lemon, or just poorly build where it’s expected the user simply will rebuild it piece by piece.

For now I’m waiting on very slow tech support from the USA branch of Wanhao, I’ve got a thread going on the user group, and I’ve just really with as exhausted as I am, not finding it fun to tinker, was hoping to just create – so thinking sadly things may just sit for a while.

For now, I am going to finish what I can on a server conversion, and go from there.
