The Geeetech Acrylic Prusa I3 Pro B 3D Printer Review

The Geeetech Prusa Pro B 3D Printer is an affordable DIY model. It comes with a heated print bed that has a maximum temperature of 110°C. Its also has a stabilized level of printing thanks to the 8mm thickness of its acrylic plates and its metal carriages.

Because it is a kit you will need to build it from the ground up, unfortunately, this requires a bit of patience.

This 3D Printer is a PLA printer using PLA as its filament. There are different nozzles available separately that will allow you to print using ABS/PETG/Nylon/POM.

If this is something that you wish to pursue then you will likely also need an enclosure. This will help prevent the level of warping that will obviously ruin your prints.

Take your time assembling the Geeetech Prusa

We cannot stress how necessary it is to take your time over the construction. However excited you are to start 3D printing please try not to rush to put it together.

Trust us it will end up taking even longer in the long run and errors will occur when you start printing. Altho for some folks, this is also a fun part but we understand that some just want to crack on and get printing.

There are several other 3D printers out there that do come already assembled but they do cost a lot more pennies.

We would also recommend buying a high-quality SD Card, while this 3D Printer does come with SD card as well as USB connectivity we found that there were errors creeping into the prints using the latter method.

We did not experience any such issues when printing via an SD card.  This issue is not a problem specific to this 3D Printer, this problem does occur across a wide range of similar machines that we have tested. It’s an area where much improvement is needed right across the board.

Our Conclusion

So, overall the Geeetech Prusa I3 Pro B is great value for money, especially when considering that you do get everything you need to get started. There is also plenty of scopes for you to add to it and improve it over time.

This 3D Printer is good for someone new to 3D Printing, as long as you don’t mind a slightly steep learning curve. The setup literature could be a little better and would help with this no end, but once up and running this 3D Printer is versatile and can be added to in whatever way you wish.
