MakerGear M3 Dual (M3-ID) review

The MakerGear M3 Dual is a professional FDM desktop 3D printer by MakerGear, a manufacturer from Ohio, US. The M3 Independent Dual is also known as the M3-ID or M3 Independent Dual Extrusion.
The M3 is the newest successor to the award-winning M2 3D Printer. This versatile 3D printer is positioned as a reliable workhorse, designed to offer continuous operation and long-term performance for professional, industrial, and educational use.
The M3 comes in two versions, the M3 Single Extrusion (M3-SE) and the M3 Independent Dual (M3-ID).

MakerGear M3 Dual (M3-ID) features

Crafted from precision-machined components, this professional desktop 3D printer offers interesting features such as:

  • Independent dual extrusion: allowing for greater speed with flexible and rigid composite printing, multi-colored/multi-material 3D printing, and soluble support 3D printing.
  • V4 hotends and different nozzle diameters: this 3D printer comes with a 0.35 mm standard brass nozzle. Brass nozzles (diameter 0.25 – 0.75 mm) and stainless steel nozzles (diameter 0.35 – 0.5 mm) are available. The nozzles can reach a temperature between 180 and 300°C in less than 2 minutes.
  • Bed-leveling system with touch probe: MakerGear names this feature “True Leveling” and, according to them, it’s more precise, reliable, and convenient than regular auto-leveling.
  • Heated print bed: the build plate temperature can reach up to 130°C with the MakerGear enclosure and 120°C without it.
  • “Auto-prep” option: pre-configured material profiles allow for a one-click preparation of STL files with a broad range of materials.

The M3-ID is able to 3D print ABS, HIPS, Nylon, PET-G, PET-T, PLA, polycarbonate, PVA, TPE, and TPU as well as metal composites (metal, wood, carbon fiber, etc.).

An optional enclosure for the M3-ID Rev. 1 is also available for an additional fee.
