While surveilling Monoprice’s new British and German websites for information on the Delta Pro — the company’s latest 3D printer release following last month’s Select Mini Pro — something altogether more interesting caught our eye.
Head on over to Monoprice.uk and you’ll notice a secondary page of 3D printers under the banner of “3D Printing for Business/Education”. This is the first we’ve seen of such a line of machines.
Digging a little on the likes of Reddit and other corners of the web, we find mention of the machines going back as early as the beginning of August. It is yet another case of the company releasing new hardware with little to no fanfare.
Officially noted as coming soon on the UK Monoprice site, we’ve found the Monoprice Voxel, MP Fully Enclosed 300, MP Fully Enclosed 150, and MP Fully Enclosed Dual Extruder in-stock and shipping today on unlisted product pages on the company’s main US website.
As if often the case with Monoprice 3D printers, these new machines are white labels of existing printers from another company’s lineup. This time, we see four FlashForge printers take the IIIP logo, with a demure grey color scheme in tow. Read on below the jump for specifics of each printer.
A rebadging of the Flashforge Adventurer 3, the Monoprice Voxel features a name that already applies to something specific in a different branch of 3D printing technology — arguably inconsequential to the home user, but it’s a puzzling decision given the functional naming of the other new printers below.
The Monoprice Voxel features a fully enclosed build chamber, removable print bed, assisted bed-leveling, WiFi connectivity and onboard memory. It has a 150mm-cubed build volume.
At the time of writing, the Monoprice Voxel is listed at $399.99.
Featuring a fully enclosed print chamber (surprise surprise), the Monoprice MP Fully Enclosed 300 appears to be an analog to the Flashforge Guider II. As the name suggests, this 3D printer features a fully enclosed build volume.
Like the Monoprice Voxel above, the Fully Enclosed 300 (let’s abbreviate that to FE300) has WiFi connectivity, and assisted bed-leveling. One notable difference here comes in the lofty Z-axis, reaching 300mm. A large 5-inch touchscreen should make setting up prints a breeze.
Monoprice lists the MP Fully Enclosed 300 at $1,899 — the company’s most expensive 3D printer.
The Monoprice FE150 presents a beginner friendly alternative to its large, similarly-named sibling above. An apparent rebrand of the FlashForge Inventor II, it packs a 150 x 140 x 140mm print volume, WiFi connectivity, assisted bed-leveling and a sub-50dB operating volume. Again, fully enclosed, the MP FE150 also features onboard memory for easy print repeatability.
The Monoprice MP Fully Enclosed 150 is listed at $599.99 on the Monoprice website.
Lastly, we have the Monoprice MP Fully Enclosed Dual Extruder, a printer we’ve seen before in the Flashforge Inventor. That means, again, full print volume enclosure and WiFi connectivity. Unlike the printers above, the MP Dual Extruder has, naturally, dual extrusion capability, which it achieves via a dual nozzle arrangement on its single print head.
For now, the Monoprice MP Fully Enclosed Dual Extruder appears for the peculiar, and we suspect temporary, price of $1,085.27.
Since all four printers are known entities as Flashforge products, we don’t expect anything to change with regards to specifications, however, the lack of any announcement and some odd pricing suggests that one or two details may still change.
