We can say that it is one of the best printers from the H series, which have been around for a couple of years. This printer has also won award for being an easy-to-operate and pleasant-overall-experience 3D printer. You can order this printer online or directly purchase it from the selected stores or on Amazon.com.
Hardware
The perforated build-plate can be detached easily and its stands out to be a unique feature of this printer. It allows better melting of the raft through holes and results in improved adhesion and prevents peeling. So, we can say that getting clear prints without any raft is quite impossible.

There are also some cool features like nozzle height detection, auto leveling and other sensitive tools.


Printing
It is recommended to carry out a test print before any final command. You can test the printing machine at nearly 200 micron layer and loose infill. You will need to do the software settings accordingly in order to get the best possible 3D print. Amazingly the test prints, according to various sources, have come out to be clean and accurate. No major problem of peeling or blurring was observed. But don’t forget to preheat the machine in order to get the best out of it. Actually, the problem is that printer starts the process of printing when the bed is not even properly heating. But it’s not much of an issue; you can always preheat it with a single button. Proper calibration and customization of the software will help in getting high class 3D prints.
