10 Reasons to Choose Geeetech E180 3D Printer

I present to your attention a review of a more than interesting Geeetech printer from Kickstarter.


This is one of the best office-style 3D printers in its price category, which is not ashamed to put on the table, show to colleagues or friends.

Geeetech E180 is a fully assembled printer with great functionality: Wi-Fi access, full print pause, large 3.2″ touch screen. The whole design is made very carefully, thoughtfully, in a strict office style.

  • Stepper motors: 1.8 degree step angle with 1/16 micro-stepping

The printer has been in use for more than six months, I add my summary point by point:

1. Thoughtful approach to packaging and product packaging

The printer comes with everything you need for active printing right out of the box.

The printer is packed in a foam shell, in the cells in their places are the parts of the kit (power supply, spare nozzles, filament probe).

2. Interesting «office» design

I liked the printer for its accuracy with rich functionality. Movable table, interesting console design with print head.

A rather successful design with three (!) vertical guides is hidden inside the case.

3.Easy operation

It is enough to warm up the nozzle and fill the plastic — the printer is ready to print.

The simple design of the extruder ensures reliable feeding and easy maintenance.

4. Touch display 3.2″

A special set of functionality adds a large touch screen. You can configure the printer, control parameters, adjust the print mode on the fly.

5. WiFi

Yes Yes. This is one of the few budget 3D printers that comes with Wi-Fi out of the box. It is enough to activate this setting in the options, and find and connect to the network that appears.

6. Pause, full, with saving the results

I will dwell on such a useful function as a print pause. If during printing it was necessary to turn on the pause, just click on the corresponding icon on the display. The printer goes to the “home” position, remembering the place where it stopped. You can check the progress and quality of printing, you can change the color of the filament. If it runs out, replace the coil completely. Then continue printing without any problems. Start coordinates after a pause are stored in non-volatile memory. It is possible to disconnect the printer from the network completely, and transfer it, continue, for example, the next day. Very comfortably.

7. EasyPrint3D cloud application

We raise a Wi-Fi network on the printer, connect, download the EasyPrint3D application, and authenticate the printer.

The application provides settings and printer management, as well as many models in the «cloud». Directly from a smartphone, you can select, download a model, select settings and a print profile and immediately send it to the printer, controlling the progress of printing. In this case, a computer is not required, only a tablet or smartphone.

8. Ability to repair

Geeetech is assembled on the basis of standard components that are commercially available. Maintenance and repair of a 3D printer will not be difficult. Software and firmware are also freely available.

9. Thoughtful design that provides the required rigidity

I have already spoken above about the well-thought-out design on three vertical guides. For movement, a T8 screw is used. In X and Y, a GT2-6mm belt is used to move.

10. Price

Now you can buy this interesting 3D printer for a modest $239.99
