Aimed at a slightly higher market, the MakeIt Pro-L provided decent print quality with a large surface area.
At the back of the bed is a great nozzle cleaning wipe pad that helped during printing. The Pro-L also touts a novel “duplication” feature, taking advantage of the dual extruders for small prints.
The printer itself functioned fine, but the high price was not met with high-quality results. The included documentation was good for troubleshooting feeding and clogging issues with the extruders and hot ends, but there were a few too many for our taste. Some cooling enhancements could help, but the biggest hurdle is the price. If you’re putting together a print farm, the Pro-L may fulfill your batch printing needs, but be ready to get your hands dirty.
