The Hyperion Forge 3D features high-strength rolled edge punched steel construction, a easy-to-navigate blue LCD display, the controller runs extremely fast and reliable on the controller. The Forge 3D also comes equipped with a high quality power supply that is switchable between 110v and 240v. All the motors are fastened directly to the frame and the wiring harnesses are retained neatly with flexible cable trays.
The printer includes all the features that you would expect from a high end modern 3D printer, such as a heated adjustable print bed, interchangeable print nozzles (it comes standard with 0.4mm but can be fitted with 0.3mm or 0.2mm) and a 200x200x180mm print area that is plenty big enough for most projects.
The Forge 3D comes flat packed and can be constructed in less than 30 minutes, probably less if you're familiar with 3D printers, and because it is based on such a popular format the printer is easy to modify and maintain.
This machine is incredibly simple to use, just load your printing file to the open-source Cura software, export the .gcode format onto your SD card, then pop the SD card into the printer, select the file you want to print via the graphical user interface and press GO; and the Forge 3D does all the rest of the work for you. If you want to be able to control the printer direct from your computer the Forge 3D can also be connected via USB cable.
With the Forge 3D’s relatively low-cost and high quality DIY’ers, hobbyists, and designers alike will be rushing to so what they can create!

This Printer produces excellent results after proper assembly. The Assembly is easy and straightforward. Several of the community complaints about the Wanhao Duplicator i3 v2.1 of which this is a re-brand have been addressed in this printer. The wingnuts on the bed leveling and the Lock Nuts on the heated bed have been addressed. It seems that the Heated Bed shorting issue has been solved as well. You should print yourself a better part cooling fan setup to get better print quality, that being said I have printed over a dozen objects and the quality is outstanding as is. I have had issues with first level adhesion to the print bed as has just about every other person I know using the as shipped surface. But Blue Painters tape has temporarily solved that issue and I will be going to Glass soon. You would be hard pressed to find a better printer in the sub $700 class than this printer so if you have a need for a printer this is an excellent buy! This being an almost completely assembled kit out of the box puts you several weeks ahead of most printers in this price range. After putting in 8 bolts and plugging in 6 or 7 wires you are up and running! No multiple days of assembly and wiring to go thru, and the printer is pretty well calibrated out of the box. Plus the all metal construction is vastly superior to the plastic construction of the majority of the competition for this printer. I would suggest anyone who buys this to download the latest version of Cura which will give you much more control over the printing process and will make your printing experience even better.

Really good for the money. If you intend on buying this then I recommend buying grease. After 10 hours of printing, it starts to squeak. It might not be a problem for some people but it bothers me. It doesn't print the best quality but I wasn't expecting that from a really cheap printer. If you are mainly printing parts for the RC hobby then quality doesn't really matter.
