China-based 3D printer manufacturer Winbo Smart Tech Co., Ltd. has had a banner year – showing off its 3D printing capabilities to massive global trade platform and Winbo reseller Alibaba in a facilities tour, seeing its user-friendly Super Helper put to good use in classrooms all over the world, and recently introducing its large format Dragon(L)4 3D printer and its new, reliable desktop 3D printer, the FDM-Value Plus.

But now, this 3D printing powerhouse is back with another new product, the little brother to the FDM-Value Plus: the FDM-Value 3D printer.

The FDM-Value Plus features a build size of 255 x 225 x 305 mm, and the high-quality FDM-Value is just about the same size at 255 x 225 x 255 mm. It offers the same ease of use, but at an even lower cost of $999, and it’s available in black and white.

The 3D printer offers high accuracy and stability, and comes with a built-in WiFi module that supports Android, iOS, and Windows, so you can operate the FDM-Value from your computer, tablet, or smartphone with ease; the 3D printer also allows users to print from an SD card. It also features an automatic shutoff once your print is done, to reduce energy waste and save on electricity.

Speaking of automatic, the FDM-Value also features auto-leveling – instead of having to manually adjust each time (though this option exists if you prefer it), one click will automatically adjust the build plate. If the power goes out unexpectedly while you’re in the middle of a print job, the FDM-Value comes with a built-in memory module that will store your progress so you can pick back up where you left off once the power comes back. In addition, the 3D printer will automatically pause the build if it detects a filament break and ask if you’d like to replace it.

This goes part and parcel with the 3D printer’s easy-to-use, 3.5″ full-color touchscreen, which is leaned out from the machine at a 60° angle and supports six different languages.

Winbo recommends that the FDM-Value be used with PLA filament for best results, but it can also work with PETG and ABS, among others. Winbo suggests that if you do choose to use these other filaments, you shouldn’t print anything with a build area greater than 150 x 150 x 150 mm, and that you take the time to find the proper settings for the nozzle temperature, fan speed, and bed temperature.

The FDM-Value 3D printer also comes with a brush for cleaning filament from around the nozzle and a glass build plate that’s easy to remove, thanks to a small clasp. The printer is fully enclosed for safety purposes, and its alloy nozzle, which heats up in less than two minutes, offers uniform heating, smooth extrusion, and fast, precise printing. Other 3D printer specs include:

  • 20-100 mm per second print speed
  • 0.05-0.35 mm layer thickness
  • 0.01 mm positioning accuracy
  • 0.4 mm nozzle diameter

Don’t forget about the user-friendly Winware slicing software either – it comes in seven languages, offers three different types of support and five different fill modes, and lets users set the print speed for each part separately.
