A.  Both the heated bed and hot end are 24V.  All fans are 24V as well.

Q.  What hot end does the ZYLtech Gear V3 use?

A.  The ZYLtech Gear V3 uses a Bowden drive Extruder with a volcano style hotend.  It is compatible with volcano style nozzles up to 1.2mm in diameter.  The hotend has a 4mm bore allowing the PTFE to be fed directly to the brass nozzle.  The high flow rate hotend is essential for large prints up to 300x300x400mm.

A.  The bed is made of 3mm aluminum with a plastic build surface similar to Buildtek.  Glass bed upgrades are available.  The maximum heating output is 240w.  It only takes a few minutes to heat to 60C.  We recommend printing at approximately 45C for PLA and 55C for PETG if using our blue PEI build surface.

    V3

    Posted by Nickels Novelties on Feb 19th 2021

    Set up was pretty straight forward and easy to follow if you use the files from the flash drive. The build plate cover is very tacky but it is easily removable to ensure proper placement. the V3 has a good size for a variety of builds. I was under the impression all printers come with a slicer program so I did not inquire about it before purchase so I am using a program from my first 3D printer. over all It is a good printer.

    Gear 3 WOW!

    Posted by Chris Russell on Dec 14th 2020

    I LOVE the gear 3 machine! I thave been 3D printing for about 5 years now and owned multiple other brands of machines that just can’t touch this one. I threw the cr-10 in the trash so it could live in the landfill ! The gear 3 is super fast getting prints done faster than any machine I’ve owned, and silent and simply prints great detail. It’s extremely easy to use and tune/ set up the way I wanted it. I could not be happier with Zytech products and their customer service and support is the absolute best. If you want a machine you can trust you can’t go wrong with a gear 3!

    ZYLTech Gear V3 Large Format Printer

    Posted by RAThomas on Dec 9th 2020

    With a resemblance to the Creality CR-10S Pro, this printer is a solid value at a significantly lower price. To sum up the "Pros", I'm pretty pleased with buying this to replace my homemade Prusa i3 variant. I've gained a solid, integrated unit and only lost my auto-leveling (and my mess of wires and external power supplies).

    So onto the "Cons" (or better stated, things to watch out for):
    - it's tricky to get the sheathed cable to the hotend secured so it doesn't get in the way. Refer to their pictures and adjust cable ties until happy. I printed a hanger to suspend it from the upper left corner
    - The gear on the filament drive motor shaft worked loose and stopped gripping the filament after about 10 print hours. I suggest users tighten it's two set screws and maybe add some blue Locktite as I did.
    - The Y carriage wheels were not properly tight out of the box. Users should check the bed for side-to-side play and adjust the eccentric nut(s) under the bed per the manual.
    - The X carriage belt ends are pre-looped and tied with two small cable (zip) ties on each end. On mine at the left end, one of the cable ties interfered with the X carriage limit switch, tripping it before it could contact the correct target. I fixed this by both replacing the offending cable tie *and* clipping off the curved tip of the limit switch lever (be careful not to rip the lever off if you do this)
    - The stock firmware is quite usable but with some minor annoyances. The Z homing speed keeps switching to a really slow setting, regardless of my changes. The good news is the firmware can be updated.
    - Filament tends to collect between the heater block and the silicone sock around it. Later half-charred filament will be smeared over your new prints unless you are fastidious about cleaning it up. The fix to this is actually in your slicer settings. You should configure it to add the following pre-printer gcode functions:
    -> Raise the print head (Z) before heating the hotend
    -> Wipe the nozzle before printing

    You should be able to find examples of "Marlin" Gcode for this two items by web search.
