Monoprice Voxel 3D Printer review

Monoprice Voxel 3D Printer review

The Monoprice Voxel 3D printer is capable of printing both PLA and ABS material with excellent results. However, the MP Voxel has some flaws: unreliable firmware and mediocre software make printing more difficult than it should be. Still, for classroom or home usage, this is a reasonably priced set that delivers high-quality prints.


The Monoprice Voxel 3D printer is a one-piece design that is ideal for novices. The simplicity of the design and the easy manufacturing process make 3D printing accessible to all users. The heated bed built into the printer makes the job easier later on throughout the printing process. There is no need for extensive maintenance breaks because the replacement happens in the blink of an eye. It has an HD camera built into the build space that allows you to view the prints from afar when you aren’t near the machine. The printer has 8 GB of internal memory and may be used as a standalone device without the requirement for a connection.


The print volume is 6.9 inches on each side, for a total print volume of approximately 329 cubic inches. On-device controls are provided through a tiny LCD touch panel on the front of the printer. Entering stuff like a WPA key on the little on-screen keypad was a little challenging for me.

Software and Connectivity:

MP FlashPrint software is free to download and works with the Voxel and other Monoprice printers. It allows you to resize, move, and store objects, as well as load multiple objects for printing and adjust print resolution, filament type, and other parameters. You can print from the Voxel via an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection, or from a cloud-based platform like Polar Cloud.

Setup and Controls:

The MP Voxel printer is largely plug-and-play. It’s as simple as unboxing it, plugging it in, and loading filament. The Polar Cloud also works with the Voxel, allowing you to operate and monitor the printer from any web-connected device. However, in our tests, this software was prone to seemingly random crashes.

Print Quality:

In draught mode, various problems appeared as random bumps on the print’s surface. The Polar Cloud software’s standard option generated a significantly cleaner, smoother print. Our test model of a set of gears turned out beautifully, with the gears neatly fitting and screwing together.

Print Speed:

MP Voxel is a low-cost 3D printer that can create a 4.5-inch tall print in 3.5 to 5 hours depending on the quality. It’s far faster than the da Vinci Nano from XYZprinting, which took almost 7 hours to generate the identical print. The Polaroid PlaySmart 3D is a speedier budget printer, although it usually costs more.


This simple bed leveling device is also included with the LulzBot Mini 3D Printer. You can print wirelessly or via an ethernet cable, and you can even use your Voxel as a hotspot, which is quite nice. Just be aware that there may be some shaky Wi-Fi connection issues, which can make printing a pain.


  • It’s simple to set up and utilize.
  • Adaptable software.
  • Print quality is excellent. 
  • Printing speed is fast


  • The touch screen is a little shaky. 
  • Subpar software


The Monoprice Voxel 3D printer is a low-cost, easy-to-use 3D printer. Although the print quality is generally high, it was unable to print two of our test pieces.
