The Alunar M508 DIY is a personal FDM 3D printer kit. It comes with all parts needed to build up the machine. You have to assemble it by yourself following the detailed instructions and the assembly videos available in the card included in the package. It has a robust structure and is composed of high-quality parts, including mold parts for Z-axis and three slide blocks for the extruder. The rigid construction makes the printer stable and accurate. The Aluna M508 grants superior quality, performance, and extreme affordability. It comes with a heated print bed and a pause-printing function, which enables multi-color printing on one item. Thanks to the auto-install and uninstall function, the filament can be easily replaced during printing to create multi-color objects. It is used by hobbyists and students to print a wide variety of models, including functional parts, toys, personal objects, and home decorations. Keep on reading the review to find out more.

One user tested the printer accuracy by creating some standard LEGO bricks. Printed with SBS using a 0.5mm nozzle at 0.25mm layer-height, they perfectly fit together. It took 21 minutes of printing for each brick.

The same user 3D printed a gear wheel for a meat grinder. He chose a 0.5mm nozzle, SBS plastic and a layer height of 0.2mm. It took 2 hours of printing and turned out really good and accurate even in the small details. The pic shows the old wheel on the left and the new, 3D printed one.

Print quality

The Alunar M508 DIY is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. The steady structure and the advanced filament management features allow creating multi-color parts with a decent level of accuracy and a good amount of details.

Materials

Alunar M508 DIY 3D Printer prints with PLA, ABS, HIPS, Wood Polymer, PVA, PP, Luminescent, Nylon, and other materials. 
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
