Bei einem 3D-Drucker dieser Preisklasse erwarte ich, dass sich der Hersteller wenigstens etwas Mühe gibt, die Lautstärke des Druckes gering zu halten. Einen derart lauten 3D-Drucker habe ich noch nie erlebt:
1. lauter Lüfter im Netzteil (einziger Vorteil, er ist temperaturgesteuert und läuft nicht immer)
2. lauter Hotend-Lüfter (Dieser 30x30 Lüfter schreit wie eine Turbine. Platz wäre ohne weiteres für einen 40x40 Lüfter, der kaum mehr kostet, aber wesentlich leiser ist.)
3. lauter Bauteil-Lüfter (dieser bläst das Bauteil nur von einer Seite an und das auch noch von hinten nach vorne. Das heißt, wenn man das Bauteil während des Drucken näher ansieht, wird man kräftig angeblasen.)
4. sehr laute, runde Führungen des Druckbettes in der Y-Achse. (Dies ist dem Hersteller natürlich bekannt, denn als Zubehör werden leise Lienarschienen für die Y-Achse angeboten. Vorteilhaft wäre es, wenn diese out of the Box verbaut wären.)
5. laute Stepper-Treiber für die Z-Achse und den Extruder, die zusätzlich auch noch fest verlötet und damit nicht auswechselbar sind. Die Mehrkosten des Herstellers, wenn hier gleich TMC2208er Treiber vorgesehen würden, betragen nur wenige Cent. Nun jedoch muss der Endanwenden sich permanent über den Krach ärgern.
Die verbaute Hauptplatine und das Display sind zwar von Makerbase, leider sind z. B. die Anschlüsse USB und SD-Karte anders als bei den anderen von Makerbase vertriebenen Platinen, so dass ein Austausch gegen eins Hauptplatine mit gesockelten Stepper-Treiben ohne mechanische Bearbeitung des Gehäuses nicht möglich ist.
OK, I admit, this is my first 3D printer ever. I was a bit worried as this is not one of the usual suspects when talking about 3d printers. However It was very easy to assemble the two main parts and it was ready to print in no time. I followed the bed leveling procedure, but before that I watched a review on the YouTube how to make sure the bed is as leveled as possible even before starting the auto-leveling procedure. After that I printed the cube and it was close to perfect. Same with the Benchy (the ship). And for those I used the included filament. So it was a good start!
Well, I waited a few weeks before writing a review, so I am going to be as honest and objective as possible, and I will explain later why I am giving 4 starts and not 5, though the potential is there. I have to say that I used the original firmware only for a few days and then I flashed the latest one - 2.1.3, so here are a few things - first of all, one time the printer just reset itself immediately when I inserted the memory card - strange, but occurred only once. Then there is the thing with the WiFi. Using Cura 5.2.1 and the MKS WiFi plugin works, but one has to be persistent when trying to print remotely. That is because most of the time it fails. I have to retry 4-5 times (mostly) before the transfer actually starts, and sometimes it would start on the first or second attempt. Once it does though, everything is OK. So this is one of the reasons for a star less. Another annoying thing is that the printer waits for the bed to heat up and THEN it starts heating the nozzle. Why? So I usually wait for the bed to come say 10 to 15 degrees before the final temperature and start heating the nozzle manually. This way they reach their designated temperatures almost at the same time, which is better. Heating is a bit slow, but not an issue.
And now let's get to the biggest issue I encountered while using the printer. And this is the bed itself. Actually not the bed, but the support of the bed. Using those rods and the linear bearings is fine I guess, but beware - they bend if the bed gets pushed a bit harder downwards. How that happens? Well, during the cleaning process. Sometimes I need to push a bit harder with the cloth and then it happens. At firs I didn't notice it, but at some point my prints started to fail and I had to compensate with the Z-axis, but once perfect first layers not only started to warp, they began to not stick properly and completely fail the whole print. Well, after I discovered the issue, it was fixed and I got my good prints back. However I still need to tinker with the Z-axis offset occasionally. So my recommendation to the engineers is - replace the rods with rails - the Y-axis is too long for these rods - the diameter is fine when no force is applied to the bed, but a little push and buy-buy perfect levelling. So this is the main reason for the 4 stars. Now there are a few other things that could be improved also, like adding tensioners for the belts, but this is not an issue. Also, I feel like the touch on the screen is a bit inaccurate and I need to touch a bit lower to avoid selecting what is above my finger. The interface could be improved, but not a necessity.
And finally, if I was asked if I would recommend this printer, the answer would be YES, definitely! It is very easy to use, prints fast, accurate, and does the job every time if you avoid bending the rods. I would say, it has its charm and is a good start to make improvements over the distinctive and good design. Oh, and fix that WiFi glitch.
I've purchased this printer (Kywoo Tycoon) just weeks ago and I really can recommend it. I have various FDM printers (Flashforge, Cetus, and few other brands) and this one is by far the best I've ever had!
Print results are extremely smooth and using the recommendations from Aurora tech (Cura settings) provides smooth results, no stringing, no layer shifting etc..
Upon delivery my printer was missing some of the basic parts to assemble it, but contrary to what some are mentioning below, customer service is friendly and responds adequately resolving my issue by sending the missing parts in a very timely manner (less than 5 days shipping from China).
Le service à la clientèle de la compagnie kywoo3d est vraiment pouri il m'envoie jn imprimante 3d qui ne marche pas et même pas capable de trouver le trouble c est moi qui s trouver le trouble j'ai changé la pièce et il même pas envoyé une pièce pour la replacer une compagnie de marde
Véritablement content de l'acquisition de la Tycoon Max. Son look sort du lot des traditionnelles imprimantes 3D. Opérationnel en 15 minutes. Bravo aux ingénieurs et aux concepteurs ainsi qu'aux techniciens et ouvriers pour la fabrication de qualité. C'est ma première imprimante 3D.
Kywoo Tycoon Linear Rail 3D Printer Advantages:
1.Powerful Extruder Kit Redesigned
The most powerful design of Tycoon is the Nozzle kit we select, Unlike other normal 3d printers, the extrusion and heat dissipation structure on the 3d printer are seamlessly integrated to avoid vibration and terrible wear, especially the cool red rotate wheel design makes the filament easier to feed-in. With this, you can better view the situation of printing in real-time, make sure of the model can be perfectly print-out.
2.Unique & Elegant Appearance
Upgraded "DIY pro" frame structure design with complete accessories set, neat & elegant appearance gives you a unique user experience different from other common DIY 3d printers, no exposed wires provide you a safer working environment.
