 Product Description

The Duplicator i3 Mini is the latest derivative in the very popular i3 range of 3D Printers.
The Mini has a smaller build size than the standard i3, but still large enough for most projects. The printer comes almost fully assembled and will be ready to print within minutes after un-boxing.
Like all of our 3D printers, the Duplicator i3 Mini uses an open material system, which means you are not limited in your choice of materials. Filament is supplied on open spools and not in proprietary cartridges or spools marked with NFC tags which generally cost 3 or 4 times that of standard materials.

  1. Great Starter Printer

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Oct 2018

    I Really like this printer, think this might be the closest to plug and play there is, of course you have to make sure that bed level is correct etc. but towards the setup, printing, everything is straight forward by following the manual that was included with the machine.

    At the beginning when I wanted to print a circle shaped object, it came out as a oval and further tests also printed a cube that was not square or to scale on the Y axis. I got in contact with the support team that they was happy to help, Dietrich Niebuhr, their Technical Manager & 3D Printing Specialist assisted me in changing the printer’s settings and everything is printing perfectly now.

    Will definitely recommend this printer to friends


  2. Fantastic

    Posted by James swan on 22nd Oct 2018

    This is a fantastic little printer, Great build quality and very compact. Very impressed with the 0.06mm layer height capability. I have a couple of 3D printers with large build volumes but use the mini daily for precise small to medium projects. A GREAT investment and a must have.


  3. Bang for Buck

    Posted by Pierre on 20th Jan 2018

    This was my first printer, and I wanted something entry level.
    I am not disappointed.
    I was able to get up and running and once it is set up, it works like a bomb.
    No tools were needed for setup. Just a card for measuring and some thumb-dials to tweak.

    The quality of the print is great.
    I have no regrets buying this machine.
    I will recommend it as a good start for anybody interested in 3d printing.
    (Of course I don't have much else to compare it to. I can only vouch for this being a startup that worked)

    Some things I would have liked.
    - Box doesn't contain a user manual. (Not critical, but helpful)
    - No Manual on the SD card either. (But it does have the CURA software and a model file to TEST the printer.
    - Maybe 3dprintingstore.co.za can offer to level the bed as an add-on service. Though I recommend users do this themselves so that they get a better understanding of the machine.

    My first few prints got stuck on the nozzle. Three things to check...
    - Clogged Nozzle.(see below)
    - Temperature (try bumping it up from 195 to 200 degrees)
    - Apply some Glue stick to the bed (glue stick included in box)

    Some things I had to figure out and I'm sharing with you now.

    - Use the 0.4mm drill bit to unclog your nozzle (after preheating)
    (The nozzle is likely clogged out of the box and a newbie won't know that the looping extrusion is a symptom of that)

    - When leveling the bed, don't be shy with distance.... The box has a card that you must slide between the nozzle and bed to make sure the spacing is right... in the end what worked for me is a tight fit. The card has to squeeze in. Just be careful that you don't grind into the bed... start low and slowly tweak your way up (the machine has a level wizard that checks 4 corners... I ran mine at least twice with each adjustments to make sure the level is consistent)

    Once the filament got stuck and the printout ran dry for a few layers.
    I think this was because the nozzle had to "jump" several times in quick succession (I was printing a lot of tiny pieces simultaneously)
    The machine has to retract and inject the filament each time it jumps so that the pieces don't have strands between them... I think the constant back and forth from the feeder caused a "burp" in the process...
    My recommendation is that if you are printing lots of tiny pieces, then consider printing them one at a time to avoid excessive stop/starts with jumping.


  4. Awesome Little Printer

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Dec 2017

    I've had mine for about 3 weeks now and am happy on all fronts. Really easy setup, decent quality prints and a nice compact unit.


  5. Fantastic

    Posted by James Swan on 1st Dec 2017

    What a fantastic little printer. All steel frame, bed level function and good quality print makes this one of the best beginner 3D Printers in my opinion. Very impressed that the unit comes with all the necessary tools and an extra adhesive build tak. I use hairspray rather than the glue to prepare the surface printing and it makes it easier to clean afterwords. Very, very impressed by the price too.


  6. Quick and easy Lovely product

    Posted by Francois on 29th Nov 2017

    The set up was quick and easy

    Had a issue with the Baud rate of the connection but was cleared up with no problems.

    Love the fine detail it can print and is a huge improvement of technology we had 3 years ago
