[Amazon.ca] Voxelab Proxima Resin 3D Printer $295-$80=$215

Noticed this Amazon coupon, $80 off a good entry resin printer. Seems to be sold by flashforge, so a good bet.

Not a lot of reviews, seems to be new to market. Generally positive reception.



Video review:

Hopefully this helps someone else too!

Nevermind. I just read up about it. It's a 3d printer designed to use resin instead of the filament.

I have the filament 3d printer. I hate it.

I'm curious, which fdm 3d printer do you have and what do you hate about it?

Cheaper to get it directly from Voxelab. It is $189 US all in, which comes out to around $235. Through Amazon is $215 + taxes, so for most provinces it comes out to $240. Voxelab drop ships from Amazon Canada, so no extra fees, and you get it almost as fast.

I have this one: Creality Ender 3 V2 3D Printer Upgraded with Silent Motherboard, Meanwell Power Supply,Tempered Carborundum Glass Plate and Resume Printing 220x220x250mm, Intergrated Structure 3D Printer

The first few times it printed fine, but then after that no matter what I do, I can't get it to print. The friggin' nozzle keeps on dragging the filament with it. I have spent hours and hours on it and have decided to pull a Sameer on it some day (Reference: Office Space Movie).

I can't seem to tell the difference between OP's link and this other Amazon listing for what seems to be the same thing but is $210 after $40 coupon and $45 price drop:

https://www.amazon.ca/Proxima-Monochrom ... B08FR7VVCJ

Both seem to be the same thing but this is $5 less and might have different shipping options.

Lol, I would gladly take that off your hands if you ever decide to part ways with it (smashed or otherwise).

Avoid this one spend a tiny bit more and just get the Mono or Mars 2. Its insanely loud. I'm not joking I have had 3d printers with the older loud stepper drivers and this thing takes the cake. AVOID.

I almost bought this but ended up getting a Mars 2 (no need to get the pro, they're basically the same). The Mars 3 just came out today by the way, but it's 4K and costs a bit more.

The reason why I suggest an Elegoo Mars is because of the support. They have great support, but more importantly there is a big community. 3D printing in general requires a lot of tinkering and troubleshooting with settings alone. I had an FDM printer for a few years before finally getting a resin printer. Absolutely amazing for scale hobbies. Getting started was tricky and I'd imagine it would be even trickier if I had purchased a printer with less support.

Also keep in mind that resin printing is very toxic and requires good ventilation and precautions. It's also MUCH messier than FDM.

It's a machine tool, not a consumer grade plug and play device. You have to set it up properly, periodically tune it and adjust it every time you change filaments, this is true for any 3d printer you buy.

In your case it could be as simple as the retraction being set too low in your print settings.
