Many think of the Wanhao Duplicator 6 as a hybrid between Zortrax and Ultimaker. It's a reliable 3D printer with a robust, all-metal frame. Wobbling is minimal. Intuitive software gives you easy control over the final product, not to mention a wide range of upgrades, tips and suggestions available from both the manufacturer and community at large.
The Wanhao Duplicator 6 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 20 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces.
For example, see a 3D printed prototype of Falcon Heavy.
It has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.
Redesigned from scratch, the D6’s print head is faster and lighter than the previous models. The D6 has a double-track gantry system (DTG) which ensures that the printer doesn't vibrate during X and Y axis movement. This in turn makes for less errors.
Wanhao Duplicator 6 prints with PLA, ABS, PVA, PEVA, HIPS and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints when printing with PLA-type materials.
The Wanhao Duplicator 6 has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials.
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.
The Wanhao Duplicator 6 cannot print high-temperature materials like PEEK, ABS/PC, PEI, carbon fiber or glass fiber. To print with these materials the extruder temperature must exceed 572°F (300°C), whereas the extruder on the Wanhao Duplicator 6 has a maximum temperature of 500°F (260 °C).
The Wanhao Duplicator 6 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area is 7.8 x 7.8 x 7.8 inches (20 x 20 x 20 сm). Larger models can be printed in parts and then be assembled using acetone (for ABS) or glue (for PLA).
The printer is controlled via PC or its built-in LCD interface.
3D models can be printed from computer via Micro SD or USB.
The printer software works with 3D models in .STL, .OBJ, .DAE, .AMF formats, and is available for Windows and Mac OS X. Linux users will need to use a “virtual machine” or other software.

Wanhao Duplicator 6 is available in black color. Its stylish look makes it ideal for both home and professional use.
The printer dimensions are 13.7 x 14.3 x 18.8 inches (348 x 363 x 477 mm). It weights 30.4 lb (13.8 kg). The spool holder is mounted on the back.
The price Wanhao Duplicator 6 is $675.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
