MakerGear M2 3D printer isn’t a bulky machine, however, it suffices within 21 x 24 x 16.5 inches of space. This makes the 3D printer easily accommodated inside a house or a small office. Providing a build space of 200 x 250 x 200 mm, MakerGear M2 is considered enough to accomplish a variety of different jobs. The 3D printer comes in both, assembled and kit versions and embodies a Cartesian X Head mechanical arrangement. As far as resolution is concerned, one can print with 50 microns or layer height. 

The print quality of MakerGear M2 is above average. Users might have to expect a bit more with the quality when assessing the machine in regards to its price tag. But the 3D printer is very much capable of handling overhangs and the problem with warping is also manageable. As per the feedbacks and test results, the printer does well with the low-poly prints. The positive part is that the printer can be used with a variety of materials and one may get varying results when printing with different filaments. So, find the one that works best for your designs and keep printing the awesome models.
