About The Printer

Rebrands and Clones

The folowing printers are Wanhao Duplicator i3 printers but they simply have a different brand slapped on them:

The following is a clone of the Wanhao Duplicator i3 v1 with cheaper components.

The Plus Model

The Wanhao Duplicator i3 PLUS is quite similar to the rest but also has some significant differences as well.

The PLUS model does not have the separate control box attached via a cable. Instead, all of the brains of the printer are stored in the base of the printer. Essentially, from the bed up it is pretty much the same as the non-PLUS versions, but from the bed down it is fairly alien but shares some similarities.

Generally Recommended

  • Bed Leveling Knobs: Some of the later models come with these but for those of you that don't have them or want to customize their printer more you should print some leveling knobs. There are a ton to choose from so here. It is important that they are not too wide or they will bump the chasis. Here are a few examples:
