    machine works great, had lots of trouble trying to get help/support via emails, facebook messenger and even posting on your facebook site, eventually someone answered my simple questions, but i felt for a time that i had purchased a product with absolutely no support. Machine working well so far too

    This printer is great! Being my first 3D printer, I was worried that other printers in this price range would be unreliable and difficult to use. However, the Cetus is very easy to use and whilst there have been some failed prints, they were mainly my fault. It arrived quickly and well packaged, was easy to assemble and it came with 150g of filament! The build is very sturdy and quiet, and the coated build plate, although arriving scratched, works well. The software is also very easy to use, and I am able to produce some amazing prints with this printer reliably and with little difficulty. This printer just works. However, I would like to see a “vase mode” in the software, some more advanced infill options and settings as well as better printing without a raft. Every time I have tried to print without a raft, the print fails or doesn’t adhere properly to the print bed. For large, flat prints the raft wastes alot of filament and at times, I see it to be unnecessary. However, these are only minor problems and I couldn’t ask for a better product! 5 stars!

    Great job, Cetus. Very glad I decided to buy Cetus 3D mk3 as my first 3D printer instead of other popular brands.
    Delivery of the printer from Beijing to Singapore only took one and a half day. Blew my mind. Printer was easy to assemble for noob like myself. Software is simple and ideal for beginners. I have being using it for a month and it gives excellent prints with the provided filaments. Very reliable. Give it a good file and get the settings right, it never fail to give an excellent print. Failures to print well is usually a bad file, poor settings, 3rd party filament or poor bed levelling . Third party filaments cannot produce the same quality print, only coming close about 80 – 90%. I have also come across a 3rd party filament that prints horribly on the Cetus. Wish Cetus filaments can be more affordable and that there is Cetus sales office in south east asia. Shipping cost is also expensive for customers in south east asia.

    Other suggestions for improvement:
    (1) provide a removable flexible magnetic build plate. The coated bed is super sticky to PLA. It is a painful struggle to remove my prints until I added a magnetic build plate. The screw holes on the bed are no longer a problem with a removable magnetic build plate.
    (2) Please consider selling a souped up Cetus with a bigger bed like 320mm x 320mm x 300mm for upgraders.
    (3) Improve the instruction manual especially for mesh bed levelling.
    (4) Can upstudio software be improved such that when user selects printing without raft, there is really no raft printed. Also the same for printing without support.

    Again, there is no perfect 3D printer, but Cetus has come closest for me. Thank you Cetus. Please keep on improving your printers and be a world leader in 3D printers. Wishing you all the best.
