R&D Team

Our Research & Development Team's goal is to search for the best software and component upgrades for your Wanhao 3D printer. We will continuously update this page to showcase new printing developments and products that we use in our workshop.


Taulman 3D

This is by far the highest quality "exotic" filament producer on the planet. Specializing in Nylon filaments is an understatement for these USA suppliers. We highly recommend Taulman 3D filaments for all of your Nylon needs.


NinjaFlex is a cutting-edge filament for 3D printers made of specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that produces flexible prints with elastic properties. The best way to describe this filament material is to reference the ever-popular Nike Livestrong © bracelets...this material provides that same stretchy feel.





BC Technological Solutions

BC Technological Solutions are the producers of the Aluminum Arm upgrades seen in our homepage video. These arms help stabilize your platform for faster printing speeds. These ultra rigid arms are a must for the pros.



Carl Raffle's designs are simply beautiful. He has designed some great component upgrades that would look right at home on a much more expensive machine. His components are made primarily of Aluminum and when in operation have a high tolerance to stress and heat.  At the moment we are recommending the Alu-X-ends and AluCarriage Dual upgrades as some of his other designs are still in the testing phase for Wanhao compatibility.


Devil's In The Details

David Headrick has produced an awesome 3-in-1 Aluminum Filament Drive. Based in Canada, we believe his company is producing the leading filament drive for desktop 3D printers. Constructed of billet Aluminum and PEEK components, his drive block is made to withstand temperatures up to 480°F. 



Simplify3D does everything your stock software does but faster and cleaner. Everyone we asked gave this software praise so we naturally had to check it out. Offering faster slicing and more detailed data measuring, this software is filling in the gaps of open-ended software offerings. Packaged together with their great support, this is a must addition to your software tools.
