Editorial Review

The Wercan D150, now discontinued, came from a Chinese company that subsists still as a wholesaler of parts for 3D printers (among other things). With its clean, monochromatic design, colorful touch screen interface, and tinted, opaque cover, the D150 certainly looked the part of appliance of tomorrow. It gave the standard easy computer-file-to-printing options of working from a file on a microSD or a CAD file sent via Wi-Fi. So why did it get pulled so quickly after its December 2015 Amazon debut?

Wercan themselves gave no indication, but it's clear they had a marketing problem. The paucity of attention paid to their YouTube videos, their Amazon listings, the inability for them to start a conversation on 3DHubs point to the idea that this was really just a side venture for them. Indeed, perusing Wercan's website reveals their primary business is providing distribution and sales channels for products made in China to be sold elsewhere, as indicated by the distant placements of their four offices: one in China, one in Japan, one in the United States, and one in Germany. They further specialized in, as they called it, "digital printing and printing applications." Indeed, looking at their 3D printers currently on offer suggests they decided to leave that particular business to the full-timers, such as Flashforge, Geeetech, and Tiertime.

For some printers that, unlike the unfortunate D150, survived to this day, check out the Ultimaker 2 Go (expensive) and the Monoprice Maker Select (cheap). And if you really want to glimpse the higher limits of what modern day "prosumer" grade printers can do, take a look at the Formlabs Form 2.

D150 Reviews From Around The Web

This printer looks amazing on a desk, although it is a little bit big. The fact that it is enclosed is nice because there is much less risk of breaking...

I bought this product from another site off of this company and I am very happy with the product and with the company's customer service.
