Gadgets we said we have, but many of you are increasingly asking for… something different! We leave mobile phones, drones, tablets and smartwatches aside for a while and take a stroll in the future with the TRONXY D01 3D Printer, the home 3D printer that the gadgets inside you want.
Create from scratch what you want or have in your mind in a matter of minutes, such as games for kids, crafts, personal items / creations, or just experiment with your inspiration. It has all the assembly instructions on the microSD card that comes with the standard package so you can assemble it soon (and hopefully).
Power supply (24V, 360W), main board (32bit, Tronxy CXY-V5-180409), lower distribution board and the case fan are installed in the common box, under the printing table. The no name display is connected with a foil cable. The hotend is connected to a 30-pin flat cable via a distribution board next to the mainboard and above the extruder. There are 3 40mm fans for mainboard, hot end and component cooling. USB connection and “coin slot” (Micro SD card slot) are attached to the back, next to each other.
Except for the problem with the Z axis (loose coupling, unlubricated and crooked spindle), the TRONXY D01 is a decent printer. Whether the Z-axis has a series problem or just a stupid individual case can of course not be checked with just one test device.
The fact that the auto-leveling function, which is so widely advertised, is completely non-existent for me. I see her as a nice assistant for leveling.
Before assembling, the individual assemblies should be checked again thoroughly and cleaned if necessary. The case fan urgently needs to be replaced with a much quieter version. You can then swap the hot-end fan right away.
The malfunction, after the manual movement of the Z-axis, could indicate a problem with the firmware. The laying of the two flat cables is not solved so well, it still needs a few cable holders to store them neatly.
If the Z-axis was just a one-off case, the printer is basically also suitable for beginners. Easy to set up, well-managed leveling (but no auto leveling), and good printing results.
How he behaves in the long run remains to be seen. After the reviews of its predecessor, I’m positively surprised by the TRONXY D01.
