The MP Select Mini V2 is an affordable desktop 3D printer by Monoprice, a California-based manufacturer. It is the upgraded version of the Monoprice Select Mini which is already a best-seller on Amazon.

This low cost 3D printer is delivered fully assembled and pre-calibrated, although it is recommended to recheck the calibration in case of possible offset due to shipping and handling. The entry-level MP Select Mini V2 comes with a one-year warranty, and Monoprice offers a decent after sales customer service.

Monoprice MP Select Mini V2 features

  • Open source: the user may tweak temperatures and other settings instead of complying to manufacturer presets
  • Insulated heated bed: the bed heating allows for higher quality prints, while its insulation prevents damage due to that heat on objects that may be accidentally located under the 3D printer (or the furniture on which it is placed)
  • All-metal heated extruder: to prevent filament jamming
  • 3.7″ color screen: a practical feature for choosing files to 3D print
