Product Details

  • Features
    Geeetech E180 Mini 3D Printer
    E180 features a build volume of 130 x 130 x 130mm and runs at a high traveling speed. Adopting bowden extruder reduces the moving mass of the printing head and allows faster controlled motion, less shaking of E180, and more importantly, faster printing! The extruder extrudes smoothly, avoiding clogging or jamming. Another important feature should be the break-resuming capability, empowering E180 to save and stop the current printing job lest power outage or filament fracture takes place. In a word, it is the rigorous design that enables E180 to deliver smooth surface finish, sleek contour, clear angles and strong structure for the final printout.

    Cloud-based EasyPrint 3D App:
    EasyPrint 3D App is cloud-based to connect 3D printing fanciers all over the world to promote the development of this new tech. It is a social App which is multi-featured with remote control over your 3D printer, a cloud gallery of free 3D models and a 3D printing community.

    Break-resuming capability:
    E180 features the function of break-resuming, convenient to stopping and saving the printing status in real time. You could continue the uncompleted print at the same place as if the machine has never stopped.

    3.2 inch full color touch screen:
    3.2 inch full color touch screen unfolds an intuitive and sensitive panel by which you could modify the relevant parameters for a comprehensive control over the whole printing process. The employment of touch screen, in a large measure, simplifies the operation flow.

    Modularized extruder:
    The modularized design also brings you the unbeatable ease to change the hotend which is in slide connection with the cold-end. Now with a little slide, you can assemble /disassemble the hotend like a breeze.

    Excellent after-sale service:
    WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype are available for customer service and technical support, local engineers are also available for technical support.

Geeetech E180 Integrated 3D Printer

Geeetech E180

The Geeetech E180, a simple PLA 3D printing machine designed for the home, has some interesting features that should differentiate it from low-cost 3D desktop printers. Read on to see all the information we were able to collect from this small 3D printer.

Generally speaking, in the most economical price segment of the desktop 3D printer market, you have two options: Either buy a box of parts you need to assemble to get a working 3D printer – like the Anet A8s and TEVO Tarantulas – or use small plug-and-play machines like the Monoprice Mini and the XYZprinting da Vinci miniMaker.

Within this latest segment of low-cost 3D printers, the Geeetech E180 is a recent addition to the market. In a successful Kickstarter campaign in the fall of 2017, Geeetech raised $56,513 (target $50,000) to bring the E180 to the retail market.

Evolving one of the company’s first machines, the MeDucer, the Geeetech E180 takes the voluminous design of its ancestor’s box and reduces it to a casing popularized by Malyan and his 3D M200 printer (and Monoprice, which made it the Select Mini).

Naturally, in a new printer there is something original about it. Here, an elegant combination of black and white colours completes a look that, according to the company, makes it a “harmonious design” for the workplace and the home.

In terms of work, the printer has a simple design, with one printing end finished on a cantilever arm suspended on a printing platform that moves on the Y-axis.

Using fused deposition modeling (FDM) as a 3D printing system, Geeetech E180 deposits fine lines of fused plastic, building a fully formed model layer by layer.

At the time of writing, the Geeetech E180 costs approximately 298 Euros, depending on where you look. Considering the similarity of the models, this puts the Geeetech E180 a bit above the Malyan M200 or the Monoprice Select Mini.

The Geeetech E180 has a few aces up its sleeve that set it apart.

On the one hand, it features a removable quick-release nozzle system taken from your Giantarm D200 model. Much like the Ultimaker 3 system, with the push of a button, the nozzle assembly exits the print head for easy replacement.

These nozzle cores appear to have a ceramic coating, which the company says reduces heat loss and keeps the outside of the nozzle hot at about 100 degrees Celsius.

WiFi connectivity ensures control through EasyPrint 3D software and Geeetech’s mobile application. Beyond printer control, the EasyPrint 3D suite also allows other Geeetech users to upload photos and videos.

A colour touch screen transmits print information and (in addition to the application and EasyPrint 3D software) ensures precise fit control over the Geeetech E180. A 5-point platform leveling system is included.

Suitable for indoor and office environments, the Geeetech E180 only prints on PLA plastic.

Like other products financed through Kickstarter, it is inevitable that we find some criticism in our analysis (very rarely do these things work perfectly). And we did find something.

Sponsors of the platform holding the Geeetech E180 (as recently as mid-January) cite subextrusion as a problem. Some even go so far as to diagnose the problem themselves, citing as possible causes incorrect gears in the extruder and firmware errors.

In addition, other Geeetech E180 sponsors seem to have problems with the screws supplied to mount the printer’s filament coil holder which are not long enough.

Outside of the crowdfunding bubble, customer feedback on traditional online stores is positive. It may be that the Kickstarter sponsors (as is often the case) will receive the first production run of the Geeetech 3D E180 printer, with small imperfections that have not yet been removed. Possibly. Or maybe problems exist in a percentage of all Geetech E180 units. We can’t say for sure, so take it all with tweezers.
