Hosting a large build volume of 310 mm * 310 mm * 400 mm, Sunlu S8 is a budget-friendly 3D printer. It lets you get a correct estimate about the 3D printer filament via a filament runout detection sensor. Adding to the user’s convenience is the printer’s power loss resume function that will store all your work during electricity cut-offs and let you resume from the point you left. S8 is widely applicable for creating scientific models, children’s toys, medical as well as educational equipment, etc.

Its easy four-step installation process makes it possible to start 3D printing within a short amount of time. To ease your interaction with the printer and let you control various functions in one go, the machine is equipped with an LCD screen. Moreover, a hotbed makes it possible to print with various filaments with high glass transitions.

Benefits:

  • Huge build volume.
  • Extremely affordable.
  • Decent print quality.
  • Heated print bed.

PROS:
  • Heated glass bed in the printer makes removing objects easy, also ensuring a consistent print surface.
  • Contoured large knob guarantees perfect leveling of the printer which minimizes user input making evening out the bed less difficult.
  • Massive print area makes it possible to print tall or wide objects.
  • The electrical component of printer houses wires and power generator against the frame which gives them more stability.
  • Durable, metal frame will not warp and provide immense strength to the printer to keep it away from moving when printing at top speed.
  • Gantry-style structure of the printer keeps the print area open while printing large objects.
  • Sunlu S8 is equipped with power interruption sensors.
  • XYZ stops prevent the entire unit from hitting the ends of the frame, thereby disrupting evenness.
  • If the filament that you are using for 3D printing parts or functional prototypes is missing or broken, you get an alert.
CONS:
  • Some 3D printed objects may turn out brittle. This may happen especially when creating intricate objects using Sunlu S8.
  • The printer is loud, as reported by some users and causes a metallic ring as it operates.
