Reviews

See what the critics say

From the moment it’s out of the box, it’s ready to go. Intuitive software quickly and intelligently prepares your design for print. A radial scroll wheel allows for adjustment to speed and heat even whilst it’s printing. Long print jobs come with the reassurance of hours upon hours of continuous reliable printing. And even the heated print bed rarely needs adjustment.
