Author by

PROS / The AW3D V5 is available in several colors and has no lead-time.

CONS / It does not offer a touchscreen menu nor does it have an enclosed housing.

 VERDICT / This 3D printer is a great choice for someone who is looking for a reliable device that offers precise printing.

When searching for a consumer-ready 3D printer that is available in a variety of colors, and has no lead-time, consider the Airwolf 3D V5. This machine offers great quality when printing your projects and has a print tolerance, or allowance of printing error, of 0.1 millimeters, which ensures great accuracy.

The AW3D V5 only accepts 3-millameter filament. However, it will print several different materials including PLA, ABS and a wood-based PLA filament. It offers a minimum printing height of just 0.1 millimeters and a maximum height of 0.125 millimeters. The print tolerance is a mere 0.1 millimeters. It also offers a printing speed of 150 millimeters per second, it will print a cell phone case in roughly 12 minutes.

The Airwolf 3D V5's physical dimensions are 16 x 19 x 18 inches and it weighs 18 pounds. The frame is made out of steel, which ensures that your printer will last quite a while. You can choose from nine different colors when ordering your 3D printer; just be sure to email the company to specify your choice. Unfortunately, this device does not come with a printer housing. The housing would help keep you safe from accidental burns on the heated base plate. It is also lacking a touchscreen menu.

This 3D printer comes with a power supply, flash drive and USB cable. Airwolf puts all of the software you need to get up and running on the flash drive, so you can begin printing almost immediately. This device also comes with a starter roll of filament so you can test out your new printer once it arrives.

In order to connect this home 3D printer to your computer, you will need to use a USB cord or a flash drive. Unfortunately, it does not come with Wi-Fi connectivity. However, that is not uncommon in the world of 3D printers.

Airwolf is committed to sending you a 3D printer that will work right out of the box. Before printers are sent, the devices are calibrated and tested to ensure they work properly. Additionally, there is a six-month warranty on the 3D printer. To help you learn the ins and outs of the printer, there is a list of FAQs and a blog available on the Airwolf website.

Summary

The Airwolf 3D V5 printer is a great choice if you are looking for a unit that provides accurate results without sacrificing print speed. While it is not available with a touchscreen menu, or enclosed housing, this printer does offer no lead-time and is available in a wide variety of colors.
