Introduction

E180, a compact, reliable and multi-functional 3D printer, is engineered to be cost-effective, with the aim of getting 3D printing technology accessible to every age group. It offers a slew of practical features to render this new tech easy-to-manage both for beginners and pros.

Its classic black and white comparison gives E180 a touch of elegance and simplicity. Made from sheet metal and injection modeling, the whole architecture is endowed with the characteristics of stability, endurance and vibration-resistant performance, hence extraordinary printing experience. The cantilevered design saves much room for enlarging the build volume and enables users to observe the printing in a full view. Its simple structure embodies ergonomics and design craftsmanship and endows E180 with the attributes of being handy and convenient.

E180 features a build volume of 130*130*130mm and runs at a high traveling speed. Adopting Bowden extruder reduces the moving mass of the printing head and allows faster controlled motion, less shaking of E180, and more importantly, faster printing! The extruder extrudes smoothly, avoiding clogging or jamming. Another important feature should be the break-resuming capability, empowering E180 to save and stop the current printing job lest power outage or filament fracture takes place. In a word, it is the rigorous design that enables E180 to deliver smooth surface finish, sleek contour, clear angles and strong structure for the final printout.

Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to enjoy the convenience of cloud 3D printing solution, via which they could make full use of free 3D models, direct real-time control over your printer and share fantastic designs and prints on EasyPrint 3D App. This App is responsive and user-friendly. Besides, E180 comes with a simple and intuitive full-color touch screen which greatly streamlines the whole workflow. On the touch screen, you could use the 5 points leveling method to calibrate the build platform, ensuring great adhesion of the first layer. The leveling method is easy, accurate and effective. Moreover, with a SD card, this color touch screen allows E180 to run untethered to the computer. All these end-to-end user interfaces make the operation flow controllable at your fingertips.

Bearing users’ safety and health in our mind, we designed the hotend of E180 to be entirely enfolded so as to avoid unnecessary scald or danger. In addition, the employment of PLA is environment-friendly, nontoxic and rich in color, fitting E180 perfectly into different circumstances. Furthermore, its simple structure requires low maintenance during the operation process. Only regular lubrication is ok. The modularization of the extruder makes the process of swapping the nozzle a no-brainer, reducing technical hassles.

FAQ

In order to obtain the best print results, we recommend you use the filament that our company supply. Different filament manufacturers produce filament with different auxiliary additives which may cause different melting point and different quality. The filament that our company provided is very appropriate for our printer after tested and compared.

1 Printing quality issues.

This guide is a great place to start if you are trying to improve the quality of your 3D printed parts. We have compiled an extensive list of the most common 3D printing issues along with the software settings that you can use to solve them. Best of all, the guide uses a large collection of real-world images to make each issue easy to identify when examining your own 3D printed parts.

Please refer to this Print Quality Troubleshooting Guide

2 Wifi connection is failed.

One printer can only connect to one smart phone, before you connect, you have to bind serial number on your phone(you can find it by click "setting"→"about" on your printer).If you contacted to the printer with a smart phone before, now you want to control it with a new phone, you have to unbind on your old phone.
