WANHAO Duplicator 4S is an FDM 3D printer with dual extrusion system. As part of the Wanhao 4x series, it includes all its benefits while including some useful upgrades, like enhanced electronics and 1/16 micro-stepping motor control. It shows a partially closed case with additional top cover, which makes it a fully enclosed printer suitable for high-temp materials. The solid metal structure grans stability, durability and high accuracy reducing vibration and warping issues. It is equipped with a self-made, MK10 Dual-Extruder set for multi-material and multi-color printing. The dual-extrusion system enables support printing. While launching a print, the machine will calibrate itself before starting, offering a straightforward process.
It has a build area of 225 x 145 x 150mm. You can operate it via a computer connection or independently via SD card to prevent possible failures during data transfer. Considering its functionality, it offers good value for money. It has been used to print a wide variety of miniatures, figures, decorations, and more. Discover more in our review.
For example, one maker used it to 3D print this nice quadcopter. Look how accurate it is. Both the propellers and the body show clean edges and polished surfaces.

The printer is also good at printing small details. Notice how accurate these miniatures are. Despite they have been printed at a medium-low quality of 0.185 mm, you can see all the minute details.

The Wanhao Duplicator 4S can print at 100 microns. The quality of the printed models is more than enough for prototyping and household use. It has been realized using high quality, improved components, which ensure higher performances. For example, the upgraded extruder has been created from scratch. It is composed of a variety of custom manufactured parts optimized for printing with 1.75 mm filament. It has been designed to ensure better layer alignment and, thus, higher resolution prints. The improved linear shafting drive system and the self-aligning, sintered stainless steel bearings aim at top-grade positioning accuracy and stability. Its design allows for good quality, accurate prints, just like the Terminator’s skull shown in the picture.

The print head runs on rods with linear bearings allowing for the more simple design.
Wanhao Duplicator 4S prints with ABS, PLA, PVA and other materials. The self-made extruder has been specifically designed to ensure optimal printing performances with 1.75 mm filaments.
The Wanhao Duplicator 4S has a heated print bed and comes bundled with an acrylic top cover, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. The stable printing temperature provides accurate 3D prints with low warping and shrinking.

The printer can be controlled via a USB-tethered computer. It also supports standalone operation via SD card to prevent printing failures. In this case, you can easily operate it via a built-in LCD interface with 5 control buttons.
3D models can be printed from computer via USB and SD card.
The printer comes with ReplicatorG slicer software. The company recommends installing the Simplify 3D software for better printing performances. The software works with 3D models in STL format and is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
