Wanhao D9: Affordable 3D printer with large print area

“Wanhao” not only continues to upgrade existing 3D printers, but also adds new devices to the range. Duplicator 9 is not one, but three printers built on the same principle, but differing in the dimensions of the printed area. Prior to the release of the D9, the company did not aim at a large print area, except for the D5s , except for its impressive height, and this printer belongs to a higher price category.

What is it

Duplicator 9 is built on the classic portal principle and assembled from a structural aluminum profile, which is also a frame and guide for the rollers. Extruder - one, heated table - in stock. The manufacturer draws attention to the fact that the engine mounts and a number of other parts critical to the geometry of the printer are not bent from a steel plate, but are made using milling.

Wanhao D9 / 500

  • Print area dimensions, mm: 500 x 500 x 500.
  • Layer thickness, from, micron: 100.
  • Printing temperature, up to, ° C: 300.
  • Heated table: there is.
  • Print speed, up to, mm / s: 70.

The older model in the line has a record for the budget segment of the print area. The printer is for those who need to print quite often large parts relatively often, but it is not advisable to purchase an industrial wide-format 3D printer. The younger model D9 / 300 already has a printing area of ​​300 x 300 x 300 mm - more than the popular Wanhao i3 . The average model D9 / 400 has a print area of ​​400 x 400 x 400 mm.

Other features

Wanhao D9 is equipped with a touch-screen controller that supports the continuation of interrupted printing after a power failure. Table autocalibration is implemented using a sensor with a pull-out probe, an analogue of BLTouch. Roller carriages are equipped with a clamp to prevent backlash.

Who needs Duplicator 9

Printers of this design can not boast a high print speed, working with plastic with significant shrinkage will be difficult due to the lack of a closed camera. But a large work area will allow you to print large parts from PLA, SBS or PETG entirely without gluing. A volume of up to 500 x 500 x 500 mm will be used by the older model for prototyping, for printing layouts, for the production of cosplay equipment.


  • large print area;
  • ergonomic control;
  • affordable cost.


  • lack of closed housing;
  • low speed;
  • one extruder
