Duplicator 4 Review from

Wanted to re-post this great Review of the Duplicator 4 Desktop 3D Printer from the Facebook Fan Page @

Don is a client of ours that bought a Duplicator 4 for his company, here is what he had to say about it...
- Got my Duplicator 4 on Monday. Unfortunately I also have had to work onsite at a client's office so I haven't been able to play with it all I'd like. BUT...out of my seven first builds, six have been a success. The one that failed was a bit complicated and I've built it twice since with no problem...just changing the size. 
The cool thing was having the first prints work perfectly out of the box. Ten minutes of putting the head on and attaching a few things, then just had to align the bed. The machine came with tape AND a glass plate. I just put the tape down and aligned the bed. Prints have all been PLA, bed at 100c, head at 220c. Used a thickness of .2 for all the first prints, but am trying .1 now, and it seems to be running fine. 
I've been printing a combination of things I found on Thingverse and my own creations (I've been professionally creating in 3D for over 20 years, but for print images). I'm using Lightwave to build the models. The latest version supports exporting.STL files. Replicator G to slice and to generate the file I put on the SD card to print. So far it has been almost perfect. Looking forward to my PVA arriving so I can print some complex stuff with material support. I'll post photos when I do.
Thanks again Don, it's been a pleasure to work with you on this!! How about you?? Could you or your company use a Desktop 3D Printer that will rival larger $100,000+ machines... you owe it to yourself to check out the selection of Desktop printers at -


  1. It is truly a great and helpful piece of nice information. I am satisfied that you simply shared this useful information with us With 3D printing being applied to materials starting from chocolate to cells to concrete, and being employed by firms, departments and shoppers, organizations have to be compelled to perceive however the long run of 3D printing producing technology will be used for a for competitive advantage – before their competitors do.

News from the Maker Desk

News from the Maker Desk
Happy Monday to you... hope you are doing great today; wanted to share something that was on my heart this morning about MakerGeeks and what’s going on and what the next steps are for us.

Almost 3 years ago we started selling 3D Printer filament(all of it from China) and over the next 2 years saw a booming business come out of those items; reselling filaments from China, Germany and the Netherlands. About a year and a half ago we started with a single extruder and a dream to start making 3D printer filament in bulk scale here on US soil… back then I thought that 1 extruder and me working part time would make more filament than I could sell in a life-time. Well, within just a few months we had bought another extrusion line and hired our first full time operator just to keep up with demand.

Now, surly we would have enough filament to last a life-time; NOPE… in just a few more months we added another extrusion line and lots and lots of overtime and weekends. Now we…
