Monoprice MP Maker Pro Mk.1

The printer is almost ready to print as soon as it arrives at your place. Monoprice Maker Pro Mk1 has an open frame, because of which you would have lesser issues of temperature during the post-processing in case of having printed parts and functional prototypes and the cooling of them.

The printer offers printing of parts and functional prototypes with a huge build volume that puts it in the range of a lot of expensive printers. The print speed offered by Monoprice Maker Pro Mk1 is below average, but in contrast to it, the printer would shock you by producing high-quality parts and functional prototypes with extremely low layer resolution.

The maximum nozzle temperature that can be withstood by the printer’s nozzle is enough to let it print materials like PETG, PLA, and ABS. The printer comes with a touchscreen just like other printers in a similar price range. For connectivity, it has an SD card as well as a USB slot. For software, the company has recommended open-source software such as Cura and Repetier which makes it easier for small business owners because arguably they are already using some of those. All in all its a great software for small business owners and academic institutions.
