Description

Hyperion quality products!The latest version of the i3 style Desktop 3D printers have arrived! The Hyperion Forge 3D is a fully-assembled 3D printer that brings to you the latest and greatest in the 3D printing world, for a great price too. All you need to do is some simple assembly and then turn it ON. The Hyperion Forge 3D utilizes a rugged 3 Linear bearing design for the extruder, thus eliminating any rubbing or loosening of the belts that other brand 3D printers might have. 


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.

Insane Value

I have quite a bit of experience running an Ultimaker 2 and various other printers, so I step into this machine with some tricks already learned. If you're first starting this is the best bang you can get if you don't mind screwing in a total of 4-6 bolts and plunging in 4-5 plugs. If you can't handle that have someone else print parts for you. -First DON'T use the CURA program they give to you on the SD card. As of writing this (4/28/16) it is an old version of CURA. GO to CURA's website and download their newest version. You're prints will not work without a brim on this machine and you only have that option on the new version of CURA. There are other programs out there that are free and some that are better but, cost money but this one is fine for me for now. -Once you open CURA in the top right hand corner it asks what type of printer you will select the Prusa i3. Material.. you should know what material you have. -ALWAYS have BRIM selected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and "Support"This machine is trick with getting the parts to stick if you don't have a couple of factors in play. Obviously making sure your print bed is level with the piece of paper trick. When the build plate heats up thermal expansion of the parts will change this tolerance so keep that in mind as well. Learning which way to screw the adjustment screws is half the batter but, you will get it. -If you are new to CURA watch a tutoria cause you can rotate the part and change the "Fill" and quality settings for faster prints times. -Profile "Ulti" vs. "Low Quality"... You will almost not notice the difference in part resolution with this. Keep it always in Low. It will save massive amounts of time. -The "Infill" should be "Light" or "Dense". You parts will not be stronger if they're "Solid" and his take massive time and material. "Hollow" I suggest against unless you want a quit print for prototyping only. -Sense the machine or program doesn't have auto adjustment temp settings while printing for (PLA)you will need to manually change the temperatures. The program automatically selects temps I don't agree with or rather the material or print bed don't agree with. You will want to make sure the first layer or 2 that the print "Bed Temp" is at 90'C and up the temperature of the filament "Temp. 1" to 225'C. You can change this once you have chosen your "Print File" you will go back to the menu scroll down to select "Extruder" You will find "Bed Temp. and extruder "Temp. 1". Once the first layer or second layer are done shut the Bed Temp completely off. Then lower your extruder "Temp. 1" back down to about 210'C. If you're using Brim and your part is warping your bed is not close enough to the extruder tip. You can tighten the skrews while its printing an notice the difference. I litterally saved a print while typing this adjusting the screws. The options I suggested above will be your key to getting this machine to work. It is quite slower than other machines like the Ultimaker 2 but, that machine is more than 5X the cost of this one and to be honestly the quality is almost identical. I HIGHLY suggest buying something like this that's almost ready out of the box rather than a 100 less one of eBay that is a fully assembled job.

I've been up for days watching this thing go!

Wow, I was about to drop $200 on a cheaper FDM printer, this one is way nicer! The steel frame keeps the vibrations to a minimum because it's solid! I look forward to trying PetG and building one of the 3D Print Labs planes, but I'm having so much fun blasting thru the blue PLA that I got with it! I'm running my PLA at 209C and plate is at 56C here in the hot desert. 80F ambient temp, 15% humidity. Running with no fan. Good adhesion, no stringing...no, say it like Forrest Gump, String-Ging!
