The Alfawise U30 is a state of the art portable mini 3D printer for printing objects in a smaller dimension with accuracy. This new model from Alfawise has brought attention to the consumers as it’s the previous version the Alfawise U20 created a buzz among the users. Though it is not so different from the previous version It has been designed for home printing, so it is a bit smaller in dimension than other printers the market. Users can easily create quality objects for their day to day household lives as it is designed mainly for the purpose of quality home printing. It is a device with very fewer complexities and providing more options to users for the best printing experience.
Alfawise U30 Review
The Alfawise U30 is a small printing device that comes with a lot of features for increasing the printing experience for the users. So without further delay let us get to know the new Alfawise U30.
The Alfawise U30 has a very easy and fast installing process. After opening the package there would be screws components profiles and other accessories. The parts don’t come preassembles. The parts are semi assembled. But there is a very precise instruction book that as followed will not have any problem setting up the printer. It will take almost 1 hour to assemble this device. So, the amateur or first-time users of 3D printing are well capable of getting a great 3D printing experience without facing any problems with installing the device.
Architecture & Design
The Alfawise U30 has a very simple and steady design for a better printing experience. It has a full framed Aluminum alloy body which has a printing capacity of about 22 x 22 x 25 cm. The Alfawise U30 has a small design but prints effortlessly exquisite 3D models. Its stable structure allows it to give its users a very precise printing performance.
The Alfawise U30 comes with a 2.8 inch colored touchscreen display where the details of the printing information are shown to its users. The users are aware of all the important details of the printing such as temperature, print speed. Axis movement and many other aspects.
The Alfawise U30 has a very high printing accuracy. The XY-axis positioning accuracy is 0.0125mm and the Z-axis positioning accuracy is 0.0025mm. The nozzle diameter is almost 0.4 mm. This feature enables the Alfawise U30 to deliver a highly accurate printing performance.
Quality with Speed
The Alfawise U30 is a very quality 3D printer which comes with a high printing speed. It can print up to max 120mm per second. But it has a very consistent speed. This is very impressive for the quality performance that the Alfawise U30 provides its users with.
Filament Runout Detector
The Alfawise U30 has a filament runout detector which allows the device to stop the printing process while the filament runs out and again starts the printing process where it was left off after the new filament is installed. This feature reduces the failure rate of the printer.
Resuming printing after power failure
The power outage often hampers the printing process. It ruins the whole model that was being made. This often hampers the printing process. But the Alfawise U30 has a very interesting feature. The Alfawise U30 stops the printing process when the power goes and again resumes it right where it left off when the power comes back.
Providing Favorable Temperature

It is only suitable for smaller objects and models. It is not ideal for large industrial large printing at all. It is suitable for house hold printing for our day to day uses.
Complex Assembly compared to others
The Alfawise U30 has a bit of complex assembly feature compared to other 3D printers in the markets. Now a day’s the 3D printer’s parts come pre-assembled in the package. But the Alfawise U30 parts come semi assembled so it takes a little bit more time to install the whole printer. Though it is not a big issue if the instruction manual is followed accurately, but people now search for products that have less complexity.
The Alfawise U30 has created a name for its self for its unique feature that gives the users a better printing performance. Though some may say its small in dimension it was created for household purposes not industrial. It’s built in filament run out detector and power outage resuming function is very appreciable. It has a very good printing accuracy. The aluminum-framed design is very steady. It also comes with an 8 GB memory card and an USB port.
