 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. An absolute "must have" as a secondary printer, or for a first time owner.

    Posted by Keith Duffield on 5th Jun 2020

    I bought this printer as a gap filler to allow me to prototype and test designs while my main printer, which is a big printer costing more than 4x more than the Mini, is busy. - which is almost 24/7. Nothing worse than having a new part design hot off the press and waiting for a print to complete before you can try it.

    All I can say is WOW. The print quality is just stunning. I wish I could post pictures here. I don't usually do things like Benchy's etc but once I had done a few of my prints I was so impressed I just had to. Without a doubt the best Benchy and 20mm calibartion cube I have seen.

    Although everybody seems to be doing it, I am not a fan of increasing the build volume. I honestly think the excellent print quality is in no small way linked to the small size of this printer, lending itself to low inertia mechanics. Besides, I can always print big things on the bigger printer. That's the beauty of this little gem as a second printer.

    Oh, and I added a heated bed that I designed and made, so now I get to work with my favourite filament, ABS.

  2. Good Printer

    Posted by Tony on 20th May 2020

    The printer is not bad for the price, if you download a few STL files and flash the firmware or alter the G code of Cura you can use the full 125 x 240 x 110 size.

    The quality is good and it can handle printing speeds at 100mm p/s.

  3. Great little printer

    Posted by Unknown on 18th May 2020

    This is a great printer for someone just starting out.

  4. The little printer that could!

    Posted by Theunis on 26th Aug 2019

    First prize for it being fully assembled!

    We literally had it working within 30 minutes from taking it out of the box!

    Nice and compact, does not take up more space than a desktop office laser printer! Fairly quiet too. More so than some bigger 3d printers I have checked before buying this one.

    Getting the bed level and the pla to stick, took a bit of doing, but after that the good times keep on coming!

    It does what is says on the tin, and does a pretty good job of it, with a nicely finished surface on most of the prints we threw at it so far.

    I would advise buying the Wanhao pla filament as the test sample that came with our machine was the cause of most of the initial setup headaches, including nozzle clogging.

    Once we had the new roll installed, it just would not stop working!

    I agree with other reviewers that it is a great first 3d printer, especially for someone (like myself) who has never owned or used a 3d printer before.

  5. Good little Printer for the price

    Posted by Unknown on 6th May 2019

    The Good:
    The printer was easy to configure once you find software and drivers
    Print quality is very good considering the price
    Print speed is not bad again considering the price

    The Bad:
    The extruder fan is starting to fail {audible noises }
    The supplied glue does not work that well

    Summery :

    A very good printer for starters or people on a budget

  6. Replicator Mini VS Duplicator I3 mini

    Posted by heniloux on 27th Feb 2019

    I bought this instead of a new extruder for my makerbot mini as it was the same price.

    This printer is awesome compared to the old one.

    - less noisy
    - bigger build plate*
    - ultimaker cura 4.0 better than makerbot software IMHO

    Shipped super fast, bed leveling was a breeze Id definitely recommend this printer unrivaled quality=price=ease of installation

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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 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.

  10. 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.
