Just how good or bad is the cheapest 3D printer on Gearbest? They sent me this Tronxy X1 for review so I decided to find out what mods, if any, were needed to get good quality prints. This printer is currently only US $120, which I hope you agree represents outstanding value for money.
This printer isn’t perfect which is well documented in this video, but if you purchase knowing that you’ll need some simple mods to get it printing well, then it is an ideal first 3D printer.
