Monoprice Voxel 3D Printer

From dankwiki
(Redirected from Voxel)

The Monoprice Voxel is an affordable 3D printer using 1.75mm filament. It is said to be a rebranded FlashForge Adventurer 3, which seems plausible from external appearance. I believe it to have "Sailfish" flavored GCode.

The build area is 150mm x 150mm x 150mm. The nozzle diameter is 0.4mm.

It claims to support 3MF, STL, OBJ, FPP, BMP, PNG, and JPG via its slicing software; GX and G are directly supported.


  • Enter calibration mode using the on-screen display.
  • The nozzle will be lowered by the device.
  • Fine-tune the nozzle until a piece of paper can just slide underneath it.
    • Use the up and down buttons on the touchscreen


Monoprice makes the MatterControl software available as a deb. Installing it on my Debian Unstable machine in October 2019 saw it crash a lot. Most of these were due to missing dependencies; make sure you've installed:

  • gnome-themes-standard
  • mono-vbnc

Printing from USB storage

  • The camera disables USB storage. The camera must be turned off to print from USB.
  • The USB storage must be formatted with an old DOS-style partition table, as far as I can tell.
  • The gcode files must have a .g extension.
  • Select "build" from the main menu
  • Insert the USB drive, and wait for an icon to show up at the top indicating it has been mounted. Once this happens, the flash drive source will become available.
  • Select the flash drive, and select your gcode file.

Accessing the printer

For hostname voxel.localnet, use http://voxel.localnet/?action=stream to access the camera.
