  • Catherina Bley | 10/03/2016

    Hi. I just assembled this printer and I have run into a problem. My Y-axis stepper motor will move smoothly in one direction but not at all in the other. I have also tried running the motor without the belt and it only moves slightly.

    • William Kwok | 10/06/2016

      Hello,you can check if the Y endstop has a good connection to the board and the printer.


  • A. K. | 09/27/2016

    Hello. What is the difference between this kit and http://www.geeetech.com/geeetech-prusa-i3-a-pro-3d-printer-diy-kit-p-997.html ?

    • rita xiang | 09/28/2016

      hello A.K. the difference is obvious. For example, the control box, the main frame, the control board, the LCD. The A pro has a control box,which inlucdes the control board, the power supply unit, the LCD12864.

      • A. K. | 09/28/2016

        Hi. Is hotbed etched or plated?

        • rita xiang | 09/29/2016

          hotbed and glass.

  • omar bentaleb | 08/06/2016

    Hi so my printer is working now but i have a problem when i press the home button in repetier or with the lcd secren it works without any problem but when i move only the X axis (the one with the extruder) it only move in one way and the other 2 axis works normal so how can i fix it thank you

    • William Kwok | 08/07/2016

      Hi,Omar You'd better finish the installation and test of your endstops before you start a test of your motors.You can refer to this post: http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17883


  • Nicola Cammarrota | 07/09/2016

    Hi there, I bought this printer time ago, but the x-axis motor went in wrong direction, you sent me anotger modified firmware but after I load it in the printer it keeps going backwards. I modified the firmware inverting the motor direction but then the endstop didn't work, I'm getting crazy. Please send me a firmware that makes the x-motor going right and that allows the endatop works. Sorry in advance for my bad english. Have a nice day.

    • Andrea Lambert | 07/10/2016

      You can download the firmware in this link: http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17046 The endstop didn't work maybe because there's poor contact with it,please carefully check it, make sure it's connected well. If you have any further problem, please contact the technical technical@geeetech.com.


  • Ove Joachim Svela | 07/04/2016

    I am very happy with this printer, it is extremely stable and prints beautifully! Now I would like to make a raspberry pi cover to mount on the frame, Is it possible to get the cad files for the main frame, please?

    • rita xiang | 07/04/2016

      I am glad you like this printer. As to the cad file, i am sorry, we do not have access to it.

  • Mohammed Alturkestany | 05/20/2016

    Since ever I bought this printer. It would always fail to head the nozzle beyond 190C. Great build but bad power supply i guess. so been only printing with PLA

    • rita xiang | 05/23/2016

      thanks for your review. What is the temp setting in your printer setting and slicer setting please? They should be the same.


  • Christian Fallesen | 05/15/2016

  • Phil Jones | 04/12/2016

    Bought this printer and I've got it assembled and put together properly. Looks great, parts work! Unfortunately, I think my Y axis is moving in the wrong direction. Can I get a copy of the original firmware sent to me?

    • Quentin Qiu | 04/13/2016

      Hi, please leave your e-mail address here, and I’ll send it to you.

      • Phil Jones | 04/13/2016

        Thanks I received the firmware and have successfully updated my Y axis direction. I realized one thing during this process: If I reversed the assembly on the back plate my Y axis would have been correct. So it seems that this was really an assembly problem (Y axis assembly backwards). For a Y axis moving in the wrong direction you can reverse the back plate and there would be no issue at all on this printer. I fixed by updating the firmware but maybe this would help others with this problem who don't want to update their firmware.


  • Mark Duncan | 04/02/2016

    Hi I have a few questions about this printer: 1. Can the printer run a MK8 twin extruder head ? 2. Is it possible to use the GT2560 3D printer control board package on this printer ? 3. If it is possible to run the printer with the above parts can you provide a price for the above printer with those parts in place of the original head and control board ? Regards

    • Quentin Qiu | 04/05/2016

      Hi Mark, GT2560 can be used on this printer, what you need to do is reupload the firmware. MK8 Dual extruder can also be used on this printer, but you need to install a holder on your printer. This is the link for the holder: http://www.geeetech.com/mk8-dual-extruder-holder-p-950.html For the price of all of these parts and the printer please contact the sales.


  • Mohammed Alturkestany | 03/31/2016

    So this has been occurring to me, the extruder is not reaching the temperature set point. always 5-7 degrees below and would never start the print. No matter how high or low I set it. Any help? I barely had a full 2 hours worth of print time and this happens!!

    • Quentin Qiu | 03/31/2016

      Hi you can contact this e-mail technical@geeetech.com for technical support. Thank you.


  • Nicola Cammarrota | 03/14/2016

  • Albert Migliori | 02/25/2016

    Just an update--I now have successfully printed both ABS and PLA parts with the printer under windows 10 using both the Reprap host and Reprap server. I note that unless the server is shut down, a com error will occur if you try to connect via serial port and run host.

    • Quentin Qiu | 02/26/2016

      Thank you for your information sharing.


  • Albert Migliori | 02/19/2016

    Thank you very much. I was able to successfully install and at least test riprap software and all seems OK so far.

    • Quentin Qiu | 02/19/2016

      Glad to hear that. You're welcome. Sorry again for the late reply.


  • Albert Migliori | 02/17/2016

    I have repeatedly requested the firmware arduino files for this printer Geeetech Aluminum Prusa I3 3D Printer kit and have never gotten a single response, and you are always "offline"., you don't answer emails, and the software load that came with the printer has the z axis direction wrong.

    • Quentin Qiu | 02/18/2016

      Sorry for the late reply, we spent our Chinese New Year vacation for a couple of days. You can download the firmware of the printer in this link: http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17046

  • Mohammed Alturkestany | 02/10/2016

    I had the printer assembled but Y-axis homes at the wrong direction. I am no programmer from that prospective, wish it can be solved through Repetier instead of going through the updating the firmware itself. I need a copy of the current firmware installed.


  • Albert Migliori | 01/23/2016

    The z axis direction is wrong on the PLusa aluminum printer with sanguinolu board. I tried to upload the firmware from Plusa I3 A sanguinololu I added the sanguino board definition from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Lauszus/Sanguino/master/package_lauszus_sanguino_index.json I am expert with Arduino. Board set to ATMega1284P 16 MHz I can successfully use the serial port to monitor the printer boot process. However, when I try to upload the properly compiled firmware I get this error using Arduino IDE 1.6.7 on OS X 10.9 but get same error on windows 10. avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 How do I fix this on the brand new printer I just bought??

  • Marc Moreau | 10/13/2015

    Hi love the printer. But when i am printing big parts it shows some sings of fatigue. What extruder should i get to replace the standard one. Thanks

    • Quentin Qiu | 10/15/2015

      Hello Marc,the build volume of Aluminun is:200 x200x180mm. What's the volume of the big part you want to print? If the part's volume surpass the max volume, certainly the extruder can not work well.

      • Marc Moreau | 10/17/2015

        Hi Quentin, sorry for the late response, the parts were within the limit of the printer, after around 20 hrs of printing the extruder head started to leak by the top and the small alen bolt on the side. That is why I would like to go to a better extruder. Thanks

        • Quentin Qiu | 10/18/2015

          Hi Marc, I've confirmed with our technician about the extruder. At present we only have one type of extruder matched with Aluminum Prusa I3,and it is MK8 extruder. He recommends you to get a MK8 extruder if you want to change it.And you can contact the sales force through the official website if you are willing to buy it. Thank you very much.
