Unboxing & setup

The Monoprice Mini Deluxe SLA does not come fully assembled but it can easily be assembled in 3 steps described on the user’s manual: First step is to fix the bed where the resin will be placed. The build plate is attached to the z-axes that will move it up and down. Once the build plate is fixed and moves freely it is time to calibrate it and fix it to the levelled position.  More detailed information comes in the instruction manual (provided below on this Monoprice Mini Deluxe Review), but basically  this is all you need to do before you start printing. 

The printer comes with:

  • MP Mini Deluxe Duplicator 7 Plus SLA 3D printer
  • Power cord
  • Replacement VAT Film
  • Plastic spatula
  • Latex gloves
  • Print removal tools
  • Cleaning container
  • 250 ml UV resin bottle
  • User’s manual
Design and build quality

The Monoprice Mini Deluxe is an LCD SLA resin 3D printer with an only z-axis stepper motor that moves the printing bed up and down in two sliding rods. The technology used here is based on UV resin that is cured with an UV light and shaped with an LCD display placed between the print bed and the UV light. The printing resolution is given by the LCD display and the z-axis stepper motor which results in 0.02mm.

Taking a look to the design, the printer comes fully enclosed as all the SLA/DLP 3D printers due to the toxic gases produced while curing the resin. This also helps to control the temperature and conduct more stable prints.

The maximum printing volume is 1.5 Litres (121 X 69 X 180 mm) which is a reasonable size when compared to other SLA printers. Good thing about this printer is its overall size, you can place it next to your desk while you are working with no problem at all.

Firmware & Interface

The Monoprice Mini Deluxe SLA (Duplicator 7) interface is user-friendly and very simple to use. No buttons have been used to navigate through the menus, instead it uses a touchscreen placed on the bottom of the printer. Monoprice recommends the use of Creation Workshop software which loads your 3D model and converts it into a printable file. Other programs can also be used, such as Cura, but they'll require more  customization to work with this 3D printer.

Special features/Add-ons

In comparison with similar price range printers affordable for amateur or beginner users, this printer is able to achieve high-quality prints of 20 microns, where its competitors are limited to 50 microns. This makes this printer ideal for applications where high detail is required such as jewelry and dental prototyping.

Another important feature of this printer is the high print speed of 30 mm/h. This speed can even be compared with some FDM/FFF 3D printers. It is important to mention that the SLA print speed refers to the mm per hour printed referred to the z-axes.

Advantages & Disadvantages
PROS
  • Very high-quality prints.
  • Small, compact and enclosed design.
  • Good print build volume.
CONS
  • Small print build volume.
  • Many printing failures.
  • Not fully assembled.
Print Performance

The printing performance is one of the best characteristics of an SLA or DLP 3D printer. It is difficult to achieve such sharp edges and smooth surfaces on an FDM printer. The high resolution of the LCD display helps to achieve very accurate and clean prints.

However, the Monoprice Mini Deluxe SLA shares the same printing issues as its little sister, the Monoprice Mini SLA: Print failures are very common and in some cases it does not even start printing because the file could be corrupted. The user will definitely have to familiarize with the printer and find the right setup to avoid potential print failures. 

Conclusion

The Monoprice Mini Deluxe is an excellent UV resin 3D printer with great features and very high print quality for its low-cost. It is considered a beginner printer for those who want to start learning about this 3D printing technology. However, it becomes more like an advanced printer after a few prints when print failures take place. The 3D Printing community has listed and helped solve the most common issues with this printer. 

Our recommendation is that if you are a user that wants to buy a hassle-free SLA printer, you  will be better off spending more money on an SLA printer that has less complexity when it comes to adjustments and tweaks to get the printer to work in a stable manner without print failures.
