1. The demoulding adopts PC+spring steel plate, the demoulding is more changed
2. 3.5 inch color screen, better operation experience
3. Material rack design is more user-friendly, reducing the risk of material breakage
Are you thinking of buying a 3D printer? Then you will have to take into account several factors, and of course one of the most important is what we will have to pay for it. Precisely, the model we bring you on this occasion stands out for its excellent performance-price ratio. We are referring to the Alfawise U30S, a printer that is just as useful for those who are starting out in this exciting world as it is for those who are already fluent in it. Among its functions, as we will see later on, the most outstanding is its capacity to resume printing, when it has stopped due to some fault.
The first thing to mention is that this Alfawise 3D printer comes in a semi-assembled DIY kit. What you have to do is to join the base of with the frame of the device, and then proceed to connect the cables of the power supply with the different components. In the box, in addition to the screws and other necessary accessories, comes a guide with instructions, which will allow you to assemble it without problems in an hour. The truth is that those who like to “fiddle around” a little will love that little time it takes to assemble.
Once mounted, we will have a 3D printer somewhat smaller than most models we can find on the market. Specifically, the Alfawise U30S measures 220 x 220 x 250mm and weighs around 8.5KG. A fact to be taken into account is that most of the structure, which comes in black and red, is made of an aluminum alloy that is conveniently reinforced, which will increase the durability of this device.
There is also a 2.8-inch full-color touch screen, which can be installed on either side. Something left-handed people will appreciate very much. This panel will give us the opportunity to move intuitively through the menu, to follow the printing process and configure the different parameters, such as temperature or printing speed.
Underneath the printer there are 4 rubber feet that provide the necessary stability. As for the printing plate, it combines the glass with a type of adhesive, which will make the pieces fix perfectly. There is also a detail that we do not want to overlook. It is that the power supply has been placed in the base, under the printing bed. This will prevent children from accidentally touching it and getting a shock.
Its extremely precise movement will ensure precise alignment of the layers, making it an ideal device for many projects. The accuracy in particular is 0.0125 mm in the XY axis, and 0.0025 mm in the Z axis. Like the U20, this model achieves layers as thin as a hair, thanks to a 0.4 mm nozzle. With these features, the printer can print layers with thickness ranging from 0.1 to 0.4mm.
This Alfawise U30S home 3D printer can print from very low speeds ranging from 30 mm/s to a maximum of 120 mm/s. Although it is recommended around 70 mm/s. In order to get the best printing quality, especially when working with filaments such as ABS, it is recommended that the warm bed is at 100°C, which is the maximum temperature it can reach. On the other hand, the extruder will be able to go up to 250°C.
Another advantage of this 3D printer is that it has an SD card slot, which gives us the opportunity to load the models and print them directly from the memory card. Obviously it has a USB port to which we can connect a computer with the cable, to print from a computer.
