About the printer

Mingda D2 3D printer, content of shipping box
Figure 1:
The Mingda D2 ships almost fully assembled.
Mingda D2 3D printer, assembly
Figure 2:
The assembly starts with screwing together socket and top frame, to which reinforcements are then attached.
Now the print head and the cover on the motor of the X-axis, as well as the filament holder have to be screwed on.

Figure 3:
The final step is to plug in the cables. With that, the assembly of the printer is done.
Mingda D2 3D printer, electronics
Figure 4:
The electronics is safely housed in the socket of the Minda - the wiring inside looks really tidy and no moving parts can touch the cables with the mains voltage.
The fan of the power supply is temperature-controlled, but can be clearly heard when being fully on.
With the newer stepper drivers on the mainboard of the Mingda, the drives of the axes work very quietly.
Mingda D2 3D printer, printbed
Figure 5:
The latest technology used in desktop printing is a plastic-coated metal plate that stick magnetically to the print bed. The big advantage is that even objects with a large base area can be easily removed from the build plate after printing. I usually ruined the plastic coatings on several of my printers more sooner than later - especially when using a scraper to remove prints from the build plate - there is no need for this tool with the D2.
The maximum temperature of the pront bed is 100°C, that is reached after about 6 minutes.

Figure 6:
The Mingda D2 does not follow the trend towards more and more compact print heads, which I also like, as the components are more easily accessible whenever an error occurred during operation. A clogged nozzle or stuck filament is easier to clear with the parts being more easy accessible. I also like that the air flow for part cooling has a fairly large cross-section and the fan isn't attached tightly to the nozzle.
Mingda D2 3D printer SD card slot and touchscreen
Figure 7:
The standard SD card slot on the Mingda can be easily reached on the front side. The color touchscreen of the D2 with a diagonal of 8.9cm reacts very well to all inputs and the printer menu is clearly structured, which makes the device very easy to operate.
Mingda D2 3D printer, filament sensor
Figure 8:
The Mingda D2 ships with a filament sensor and a function that continues printing after a power failure. Especially the filament sensor will save one or the other print job.
