What are the main differences between the Q150 and the Q200
The Q200 offers several key advantages over the Q150:
1. Automatic Bed Leveling (“Auto Level”)
2. Nozzle Height Detection
3. Available 0.150mm Layer Thickness
4. Larger build volume
5. Improved print speed
The Q200 has been known as the original desktop 3D printer for over 5 years, and evolved through numerous upgrades. Today, the Q200 is positioned as the most reliable and consistent 3D printing desktop platform in its market place.
Following the Q200 success, awards and rave reviews, our R&D designed a consumer level sibling printer, even more affordable; producing the same quality printed objects as its big brother below $1000. Here comes the Q150. Although the technical specifications are not identical, the 3D objects that it produces are practically indistinguishable from those made by the Q200. The Q150 currently retails at $599.00 vs $1,299 for the Q200.
Why is the Q150 less expensive than the more robust looking Q200, yet it looks more professional and has an enclosure.
It is more economical from a manufacturing point of view, to support the X,Y,X, gantry system necessary for 3D printing by containing it inside of a “Box”. The box provides 6 planes of support to which to secure the guide rails so in fact the enclosure allowed our engineers to achieve their development goals and as a bonus, the Q150 model gained an enclosure.
What are the main technical differences between the Q150 and Q200?
The Q200 is positioned as prosumer desktop model while the Q150 is positioned as the most affordable, entry-level model in its category.
The main similarity between the 2 models is the fact that both produce incredibly detailed, accurate, smooth 3D prints.
The Q150 was designed to have most features available on Q200 but the user gets more using the Q200 as shown below:
||Q300 (coming soon)
|Finest Z resolution
|Heated Bed Temp
||5.25” all direction
||4.75” all directions

About the Extruder
The extruder assembly in all Quant 3D models is covered for manufacturer defects under a 1-year parts replacement warranty. This warranty does not cover normal wear-and-tear, including clogging after the “First Print Use”.
Therefore a clogged extruder is NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY and is considered operational and is the responsibility of the user to maintain properly.
What do I need to know about extruder maintenance?
Quant 3D printers are designed to work beautifully withofficial Quant 3D filament. Using other types or brands of filament is not recommended as it may cause clogging or damage the printer.
