MakerGear M2 (Kit) review

The MakerGear M2 is a desktop 3D printer made by MakerGear, a manufacturer from Ohio, USA.

The MakerGear M2 is the 3rd generation of 3D printers developed by MakerGear. The MakerGear M2 is a high-quality and reliable 3D printer that offers a good combination of features, speed, quality, and price. The MakerGear M2 3D is able to print ABS and PLA with its heated print bed.

The MakerGear M2’s downsides are its noisy, open chassis and its steep learning curve.

The MakerGear M2 is one of the most appreciated 3D printers on the market and has received excellent feedback from its users. This version is delivered as a kit to be assembled.

This 3D printer has been selected as one of the best “Enthusiast” options in the 3D Hubs 2015 report, and has also been selected as one of the best “Workhorse” options in the 3D Hubs 2017 report. There is a newer version of this 3D printer, the MakerGear M3.

MakerGear M2 price

The M2 by MakerGear is available at the price of $1,550 delivered as a kit, and it is also available delivered preassembled for the price of $1,825.
