Tronxy XY-3 Rundown

OK Scott Here again. So I over the last few years and all I have decided to change how I do my printer rundowns a little. Some might call them reviews but that’s a term I don’t care for because to many reviews are bias. Therefore I do what I call rundowns.  Where I give my overall thoughts on the printer along with a list of exactly what I found on the printers good and bad these are 100% my view of things I will give good and bad no matter what. So for this article I’m going to do a RUNDOWN on the Tronxy XY-3 (12V version) Plus which I have had for just over a month now.

 

 

Price is $330  Here.

Print area: 310 x 310 x 330mm 



First impressions:

Boxed well and packages like it should be to make the trip around the world.  

Came with a basic starter tool set.

Came with a spare Hotend assembly

 

Build time : 10 minutes from box to leveled and started print.
heat up time:
 Bed
 20 C to 55 C three and a half minutes
20 C to 75 C seven minutes

20 C to 100 25 minutes

Hotend:

20 C to 200 under 2 minutes

 

Now after several month and many spools of filament I can give you the following pro and con list.

Pro:

  • Fast build
  • magnetic bed Magnet holds to 100C
  • Filament out sensor (works great)
  • Resume on power lose (tested and works great)
  • Bed not insulated.
  • Touch screen.

 

 

Cons:

  • Filament routing to the filament out sensor will wear out the filament out sensor housing.
  • Buildtak / magnetic bed is poor quality should have metal not buildtak stuck to magnetic sheet.
  • Small thumb wheels.
  • A little loud when printing (think it’s the A4988 stepper drivers)
  • Cable management lacks a bit.

 

Slicer settings I use:

PLA:

Hotend temp:  213

Bed: 55

Layer height: 0.12

Retract: 8.5mm

Retract speed: 130 mms

Print speed: 90 mms


 

Ok so looking back this printer has run none stop sense I got it. After swapping to Eryone magnetic bed (Maflex) love the magnetic bed setup. Over all this printer is worth every penny. Simple to use fast build upgrades I would add would be big thumb wheels a guild for filament into the extruder, strain relief for the bed wires. Better cable management. Now Tronxy has updated the XY-3 line to have 24V power supply
