The M3 comes fully assembled and ready to get printing right away. The heated build plate is leveled using screws under the bed to ensure a perfectly level surface. Once the platform is leveled, it holds true and shouldn't need to be re-calibrated. The 0.35mm nozzle offers good print speed with excellent surface quality, to ensure a quality experience no matter the goal. Direct Drive makes the design more compact, since the extruder is mounted directly on top of the machine using a linear rail for travel around the print area.
The MakerGear M3 is a direct drive 3D printer, meaning the extruder gear is mounted next to the hotend and travels with the nozzle. On many machines the increased toolhead weight limits the speed of the toolhead, but the M3 features a compact extruder mounted using a linear rail for maximum support and stability. Also, the toolhead of the M3 travels only in the X-axis, while the bed moves in the Z and Y. This makes the toolhead motion simpler and allows for faster movement speeds without sacrificing print quality.
