The Duplicator 5S MINI is the smaller and lighter version of the Duplicator 5S. However, that does not mean that the MINI cannot create industrial-grade prototypes. Boasting a build envelope of 305mm x 205mm x 175mm (~ 12" L x 8" W x 7" H) this printer will easily find it's place in the workshops of professional model builders, architects, and your average serial prototyper.

The Duplicator 5S MINI is the machine we prefer to showcase when we speak at large presentations. The quality of the machine calls your attention and it packs all of the bite of the larger 5S series in a compact enclosure. Featured in all Duplicator 5 MINI series printers is the fastest known extruder system in 3D printing...the Bowden extruder setup prints at speeds in excess of 300mm/s. These speeds are complemented by a built-in cooling fan designed to minimize warping and improve extrusion layering. Also standard is a large (16mm) Z-Axis threaded rod which allows for sturdier vertical movements. The circuitry and electronics found in the Duplicator 5S MINI are industrial quality to ensure long life and performance. The Duplicator 5S MINI comes with a custom Wanhao mainboard, custom rotary dial touch controller/LCD/SD Card combo, and thread-locked stepper motors.
This machine was originally released in tandem with the larger 5S series printer. One year later Wanhao improved the Steel ExoFrame to provide the machine more stability while weighing less. The improved enclosure allows for ultra fast build speeds of up to 300mm/s. The powder-coated frame is currently only available in Blue.
Lastly, the most significant improvement for the Duplicator 5S MINI line was the transition from reliance on the included Wanhao Maker slicing software to an "open-source" compatibility firmware platform. Intermediate level users will find installation of slicing software to be easy and straightforward...from software download to build commencement may take as little as 25 minutes.
This model is recommended for Hard-Core Prototypers, Architects, and Engineers.
