The Monoprice Maker Select Ultimate offers some improvements over the already popular and cheaper models that Monoprice has put out. Perhaps most impressive, is the highest layer resolution of 20 microns. A heated build plate in combination with the all-metal nozzle, capable of reaching temperatures of 260°C, allow this 3D printer to print with the common assortment of filaments as well as a wide range of exotic filaments. Stability of the frame shouldn’t be an issue since the 3D printer features a full, all-metal frame. Monoprice have also given the 3d printer an Anti-Jam filament feeder, which is supposed to make smooth operation of the 3D printer more reliable.
Features: Monoprice Maker Select Ultimate
Ultra High Precision: This 3D printer supports layer resolutions as fine as 20 microns (0.02 mm), allowing you to make high-quality prints with smooth surfaces and ultra-fine details.
Professional Features: The all-metal extruder and heated print bed means that this printer can handle almost any filament type, from the common ABS and PLA plastics, to more exotic materials, such as PVA, HIPS, flexible TPE/TPU, and even metal and wood.
Anti-Jam: The geared, anti-jam feeder is designed to reliably feed filament, so you won’t have a long print job ruined by a failure to feed the extruder with filament.
The Maker Ultimate 3D Printer is capable of professional quality 3D printing with a fine layer resolution as low as 20 microns (0.02 mm). The rigid all-metal frame design results in a stable print platform, which allows for print speeds up to 150 mm/sec. The printer has a heated build plate and can therefore print PLA, ABS, PVA, HIPS, and other popular filament types. It can print gcode files from a computer using a USB connection or from an SD™ card. It is compatible with computers running Microsoft Windows®, Macs® running OS X®, and Ubuntu Linux. The low operating noise of less than 49dBA allows it to be used in the home or in a business or office environment.
