Shortly after releasing its SV06, Sovol has now released the SV06 Plus 3D printer. It’s the first Plus model in the company’s range. Just like in other manufacturers’ naming schemes, it is reserved for the larger model in the same 3D printer series.

You could expect this Plus version to be a scaled-up model of the SV06, but nothing is further from the truth. Sovol has addressed several shortcomings of the previous model and improved on it further.

In this Sovol SV06 Plus review, we’ll investigate how this new machine performs, whether the improvements are what they seem to be, and find out whether the 3D printer is a good choice for your sizable 3D printing needs.

Unboxing

As you might expect, as a large 3D printer, the Sovol SV06 Plus comes in a large box. Inside you’ll find multiple layers of components that are ready to be assembled.

It takes a bit of work to get everything unpacked, but it is still manageable for a single person.

Once you’ve unboxed all components, you are presented with the following:

  • Gantry
  • Base
  • Extruder kit
  • Electronics box
  • Power supply
  • Touch screen
  • Small spool of white PLA filament
  • Spool holder
  • A carton box with various 3D printer accessories (scraper knife, nozzle cleaner, cutting nippers), components for assembly, and spare parts.
  • Power cable
  • SD card

Aside from some quality filament, it’s all you need to get started. Because of the PEI-coated print bed on the SV06 Plus, you won’t need to buy any bed adhesion products.

Getting Started

As with most modern 3D printers, assembling and setting up the Sovol SV06 Plus is quite simple. Most components are pre-arranged in large assemblies that fit together without much hassle.

Altogether, the assembly takes about 15 minutes. The included manual is well-translated, has clear images, and is easy to understand.

One issue we ran into during assembly is that our SV06 Plus was very wobbly. After some quick investigation, we found that one of the rubber feet had come off during shipping.

After locating it in the box, we stuck it back on and all was good.

It’s not uncommon for components to fall off during shipping. Bed leveling wheels are notorious for this. However, we don’t expect these feet to hold up for long during regular use if you move the 3D printer around a lot.

It’s easily fixed with some double-sided tape, but we prefer to see Sovol use bolted-on feet in the future instead

After assembly, you’re pretty much ready to start printing. Because the Sovol SV06 Plus uses linear rails and bearings, there’s no need to adjust eccentric nuts to remove slop from the carriages.

There was also no need for us to go through extruder calibration and adjust the extruder steps/mm. It was 100% accurate straight out of the box.

One thing that we do recommend is for you to tighten the timing belts using the blue wheels on the X- and Y-axes. The 3D printer will be less precise if you don’t do this.

Next is to run through the manual’s steps for leveling the bed and setting the Z-offset. It’s well-documented, but we recommend manually setting the print bed to 60 °C before running the automatic leveling process.

The print surface has a slightly different shape after thermal expansion, so it’s better to heat it before leveling. With the early version firmware on our machine, this did not happen automatically.

When that’s all done, you’re ready to start printing!

Sovol SV06 Plus Features

The SV06 Plus comes with a lot of features that you won’t find on other 3D printers under $500. Most of these were already present on the SV06, but they have been improved to be even better.

Let’s go over the most notable ones.

Planetary-Geared Direct Extruder

The SV06 Plus has the same planetary-geared direct extruder as the SV06 does. We believe it is the component that contributes the most to the SV06 series’ high print quality.

You can expect the SV06 Plus to print with high accuracy. The extruder offers snappy retractions, little stringing, and is able to push out very thick layers of filament without skipping.

The manual drive wheel on the front of the extruder is a feature we love as well. Compared to other extruders, it makes it so much easier to manually load or unload filament without having to use the slower screen interface.

Beefy All-Metal Hot End

Because the Sovol SV06 Plus is a large 3D printer, the company has upgraded the print head with a more powerful hot end. It has a longer heater block, a longer nozzle, and a powerful 50W heater cartridge.

This essentially allows the machine to melt and push out filament faster. Ideal if you want to print at higher print speeds or if you want to install a larger nozzle to print thicker layers.

One thing that we think can be improved is that the heater block does not have a lot of mass to it compared to similarly-sized heater blocks. This is because the mounting of the block requires two large holes throughout the block, removing a lot of material.

We’d like to see Sovol improve the design so that more mass can be kept in the block. This would lead to more stable temperatures and better thermal performance in the long run.

It’s not a big problem and not something you’d notice when printing at normal speeds with PLA, PLA+, ABS, PETG, and other standard materials. But if you start to push the machine to its limits, the low mass of the hot end can become more apparent.

Just like its predecessor, the SV06 Plus uses a bi-metal heat break to separate the hot end from the cold section. This reduces heat creep and shortens the melting zone. Or in simpler terms, it gives better retraction performance and higher extrusion rates.

The entire hot end is made of metal, so you can reach temperatures above 250 °C without having to worry about any PTFE lining melting or deforming. With the maximum nozzle temperature of 300°C you have wider material compatibility than a lot of other 3D printers at this price point.

Overall, the hot end works very well and delivers great performance. We haven’t found any problems with it in our testing, as you’ll see below.

Print Cooling

The print cooling fan on the Sovol SV06 Plus is the same as on many 3D printers in this class—a generic 40x40x10 mm blower fan. It’s not particularly powerful, but it does keep the weight down and the cost of the printer in check.

Like on the SV06, the fan intake is pointed down towards the bed. It’s not an ideal configuration, because it draws in hot air that rises from the print bed. When the goal is cooling your print, you’d rather have it suck in cooler air from the sides or rear of the print head.

The fan shroud on the print head sees some significant improvements. The air is now blown at the nozzle area from multiple directions, making it more effective at cooling the freshly extruded filament.

It’s a welcome improvement for a 3D printer that can output larger amounts of filament in a shorter period of time. In practice, we have found the cooling to be adequate for most print jobs.

PEI-Coated Print Bed

Also great to see is that the Sovol has continued to include a PEI-coated print surface on the new SV06 Plus 3D printer. Not only does it give excellent adhesion, but it also makes it easier to remove prints from the bed. All you have to do is flex the bed itself, and the print will pop right off.

The most notable difference from the SV06 predecessor, aside from that this print bed is significantly larger, is the absence of dense grid lines.

On Sovol’s previous machine, we ran into an issue with the paint of the grid lines coming off when printing at higher temperatures with ABS.

Because we wanted to check if this was also the case with the SV06 Plus, we printed a large single-layer surface across the entire bed.

For consistency reasons, we used the same black ABS filament and the same temperature settings as last time. For good measure, we also left the bed at 100 °C for about 30 minutes after the print was done.

Unfortunately, the results were the same. High temperatures or certain high-temperature filaments cause the paint to come off when 3D prints are removed.

It’s not a huge issue. The paint does not come off at lower temperatures and at some point, the bed will run out of paint to give off. It’s still something to be aware of if you plan to print a lot of dark ABS.

Temperature Uniformity

The print bed of the Sovol SV06 Plus is not uniform in temperature. There’s a notable decrease in temperature in the top-left corner of the bed.

This is something that we see more often, especially on larger (300×300 mm+) area print beds.

It’s caused by the strain relief bracket for the print bed wiring—albeit indirectly. The bracket is mounted on that corner, which means there is less space for copper traces (for heating) and insulation in that area.

What this means in practice is that it’s better to place 3D prints that warp easily closer to the center or bottom of the bed. Here you can think of large prints, but also models printed in high-temperature filaments like ABS and Nylon.

Heating Times

The print bed of the Sovol SV06 Plus 3D printer heats up to 60 °C in 3 minutes 40 seconds. Reaching the maximum 100 °C temperature takes 11 minutes and 50 seconds.

Both times are not particularly quick. And even though the print bed has a large area, we expected the heating times to be faster.

The main reason for this is that the SV06 Plus boasts a larger (500W) power supply than we usually see in this class. More power available for heating typically means faster heating times.

For comparison, the Ender 3 Max Neo we recently reviewed uses a 350W PSU and takes 14 minutes to heat up to 100 °C. Two minutes of time savings for an extra 150W of power isn’t all that much.

We tested the power draw of the Sovol SV06 Plus heated bed and we found it draws 300W at full load. If Sovol would have further increased the power draw of the bed, the heating times could have been improved. With a 500W power supply, the bed should be able to draw at least 350W by our math.

It’s possible that Sovol chose not to do this to keep the maximum load on the power supply lower and increase long-term reliability.

We’re probably getting more technical here than is necessary. For most users, the heating times are perfectly fine. Especially if you mostly use low-temperature filaments and don’t require heating the bed to 100 °C often.

Inductive Automatic Bed Leveling

The SV06 Plus features the same inductive bed leveling sensor as its predecessor. Its performance is good enough, even though in our experience it is not as accurate as a physical probe.

Regardless, you’ll be able to get great first layers without having to manually level the bed. It saves significant time and makes the print setup process much easier.

Other Features

There are a couple of other features of the Sovol SV06 Plus worth pointing out.

A new addition to the SV06 Plus is a filament sensor. This wasn’t included on the SV06, but if you are going to be printing large jobs that take up the majority of the day or more, you’ll appreciate this feature.

Carried over from the SV06 is the sensorless homing that comes with the TMC2209 stepper motor drivers and the Auto Z align function. The former helps reduce component costs (physical endstops) and increases reliability. The latter saves you from having to manually resolve X-axis sag.

Also new is a spool holder with integrated bearings. It reduces friction and makes sure the filament feeds smoothly. It’s most useful when printing flexible filaments or when working with large spools.

Build Quality and Construction

When buying a cheap 3D printer like the Sovol SV06 Plus, it’s important to delve into the machine’s quality. The last thing you want is to spend your hard-earned money on a printer only to find out it was poorly made and will break down within months.

Let’s dive into the construction and safety aspects of the SV06 Plus to see if it passes our quality tests.

Build Volume and Rigidity

The Sovol SV06 Plus 3D printer has a usable print area of 300x300x340 mm. It’s close to the minimum for what we consider to be a large 3D printer (300x300x300 mm).

The maximum Z-height of 340 mm is less than what we see on many other large 3D printers with a 300×300 mm print area. For example, the Creality CR-10 Smart Pro, Artillery Sidewinder X2, and Vivedino Troodon all allow you to print up to 400 mm high.

It’s possible that Sovol has refrained from increasing the print height further while scaling up its SV06 design to maintain structural rigidity. A frame that is too tall can become unstable at large print heights and cause print artifacts.

Adding bracing to the SV06 Plus would have increased the cost of the 3D printer, making its value proposition less attractive. It would also involve altering the design of the machine.

We believe Sovol made the right decision considering the target market for this machine—3D printing enthusiasts on a budget. For most, the 340 mm print height is more than enough.

Component Quality

The Sovol SV06 Plus has the same approach to its structural components as the rest of the company’s line-up. The frame is constructed of a combination of extruded aluminum and injection-molded plastic parts.

On the one hand, the injection-molded parts keep the cost of the 3D printer down. On the other hand, they give less rigidity than a full-metal approach.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with this. But you can expect to experience more artifacts, like ringing and ghosting, if you push the print speeds.

Other than that, there’s not too much to note about the component quality. Most of the hardware components are non-branded but of decent quality. The one exception is the genuine Gates timing belts, which we are always happy to see.

Electronics

3D Printer Controller

Unsurprisingly, the Sovol SV06 Plus is powered by the same 3D printer controller board as the SV06. The board is plenty powerful and there is no reason to change it. If it works for the regular version, it also works for the Plus.

You’ll get the exact same Trinamic TMC2209 stepper drivers. They are some of the most popular stepper drivers used for 3D printers nowadays and give you great print results even at higher speeds.

They also offer very silent printing. And because they are set up in UART mode, you can use advanced features like sensorless homing. As we said in the SV06 review, it’s great to get all these features without having to spend a lot.

One thing we found on the SV06 Plus is that there is an unconnected 3-pin JST-XH connector hanging in the electronics box. Sovol confirmed to us that it’s a spare connector that doesn’t need to be connected, so you don’t need to worry about it if you come across it.

Power Supply

We were glad to find that the Sovol SV06 Plus 3D printer uses a 500W 24V power supply instead of a more common 350W one. With a larger print bed comes an increased power requirement. As long as you still want it to heat up in a reasonable time, that is.

It’s a generic brand PSU, and we would have preferred to see an established brand like Meanwell. That said, we aren’t aware of—or were able to find any—reports of Sovol’s power supplies failing prematurely.

Interestingly, the label of the power supply holder suggests 450W of machine power. It’s different from the 500W label on the PSU itself, but also different from the 500W mentioned in the manual. It’s not a problem, just something we found curious.

The 24V power supply output is connected to the controller board with a 3-pin MT60 connector instead of the previous 2-pin. It’s likely this has been changed to deal with the increased current requirement.

It’s important that this connector is of good quality. The main concern here is a connection that makes poor contact and degrades over time. In the worst case, this can cause fire hazards. It’s the same reason why you should crimp your heated bed terminals.

As long as the MT60 connector is a legit part and not a knockoff, it is capable of handling the full current that the power supply can output. From what we can see, there is nothing that suggests the connector is not legit.

Safety

The rest of the safety aspects are up to snuff as well. For example, the aforementioned bed wiring is properly terminated with crimp ferrules.

In addition, the electronics are fused and the print bed comes with strain relief. So you don’t have to worry about those connections wearing out over time.

The only thing that we found missing is a grounding wire from the frame to the power supply or power input port. We believe it’s a good idea to add one, as it puts the chassis at ground potential and provides an extra level of protection against electric shock.

The frame might or might not already be grounded because it is in contact with the power supply housing, but a dedicated wire for this purpose helps remove that doubt.

No grounding wire to the frame, unfortunately

Cable Management

Considering that the Sovol SV06 Plus is a budget open-frame 3D printer, the wire management is actually quite good. The only exposed wires in the frame are the large ribbon cable to the print head and the cable to the X-axis stepper motor.

There’s little risk of those getting caught on anything and causing a snag. They are also not in the way when you want to work on the 3D printer.

Compared to some other new budget releases we encountered, like the Ender 3 V2 Neo, the wire management on the SV06 Plus is much better.

Dual Z-Axis

Also good to see is the dual Z-axis arrangement on the Sovol SV06 Plus. Two stepper motors and lead screws provide the vertical movement of the print head.

This arrangement was already present on the SV06. With a larger print volume like on the Plus, it’s especially important. You don’t want the X-axis to tilt due to the uneven load on a single lead screw.

Whereas the majority of 3D printers with a dual Z-axis setup use a timing belt and pulleys to keep the two lead screws in sync, the SV06 series uses a different approach. Instead, it aligns the X-axis vertically by using the stepper motor drivers.

Both lead screws keep turning until the X-axis gantry reaches the limits of the frame on both sides. When that happens, the stepper motor drivers recognize this and the controller knows that the X-axis is now perfectly level with the frame.

This process is somewhat loud. At the upper end of the Z-axis travel, both motors are essentially pushing against the frame and making a grinding noise.

It’s nothing to worry about, however. The alignment works well and you don’t need to run it before every 3D print.

Sound Levels

You won’t be bothered by the Sovol SV06 Plus 3D printer while it is printing. The sound output of the fans and stepper motors is low and mostly inaudible outside a closed room or office space.

The loudest aspect is the balls in the linear bearings that cycle through when they travel over the linear rods. It’s not particularly bothersome, but it is louder than linear rails and V-wheels would be.

If you want a whisper-quiet 3D printer, this is not it. But if you want something that won’t distract you while it does its thing in the background, the SV06 Plus is a fine choice.

To further reduce sound levels, you can use a 3D printer enclosure or look at making your 3D printer quieter in general.

Ease of Use

Touch Screen

Finally! Sovol decided to provide their newest 3D printer with a touch screen. This is a big step up from the outdated dot matrix display of the SV01 through SV06.

The rotary switch knob that came with the LCD screen on those 3D printers was okay to use, but compared to a touch screen it left a lot to be desired.

The display on the Sovol SV06 Plus is a 4.3″-inch full-color screen. It is easy to read and work with.

It’s a standard-size touch screen for these types of 3D printers and it wouldn’t surprise us if it was the exact same LCD panel as on the latest Creality and Anycubic machines.

One thing to note about this screen is that we had trouble getting the transparent protective film off. The pull tab ripped off and the rest of the film was stuck there.

It seemed to be caused by the film being sandwiched between the screen and the frame. Since the touch screen worked just fine with the film on, we decided to leave it as-is.

User Interface

If there’s one thing we’ve noticed Sovol is good at, it is at laying out its screen menus. The previous dot matrix displays, despite their ancient look, were still intuitive to use. The new touchscreen display is no different.

Most of the frequently-used stuff, such as the movement, temperature, and print settings, is one or two clicks away. Even novice 3D printer users will be able to find their way around the menu quickly and use it with ease.

The more advanced settings are also configurable through the screen. For those, you’ll have to enter the advanced menu.

From there, you have access to the PID settings, speed/acceleration/jerk settings, but also pressure advance. It’s nice that this has been enabled out of the box, as it makes a noticeable difference in print quality.

You’re even able to configure settings for the TMC2209 stepper drivers. The driver current, sensorless homing, and the threshold that switches the stepper drivers between StealthChop to spreadCycle can all be dialed in here.

If you are an enthusiast, you won’t be disappointed by the user interface and options provided. Sovol clearly designed the Sovol SV06 3D printer with both novice and experienced users in mind.

Another thing we really like is the light and dark modes for the entire UI. You can switch between them with a simple click, depending on your preferences and lighting conditions. It’s not common to see this feature and it’s a refreshing addition.

Sovol SV06 Plus Print Quality

3DBenchy

Printing the 3DBenchy GCode from the Sovol SV06 Plus TF card showed us what the machine was capable of right away. All details were printed perfectly without the need for any tuning. The overhang in the bow was printed perfectly and there were no signs of stringing or oozing anywhere.

To be fair, the slicer settings that Sovol used for this file were likely conservative to ensure a good print. But regardless, the result was impressive without the need for any tinkering from our side.

Autodesk Test Print

The results of this test print are a bit messier. There’s quite a bit of stringing and what seems to be unevenness in the filament diameter. After evaluating the rest of our test prints, we believe this to be the cause of the filament we used.

Despite that, the printer shows good dimensional accuracy as well as decent bridging and overhang performance. We mostly used the stock settings in Sovol’s version of Cura, so a bit of tuning will yield better results.

Caesar Bust

This print really impressed us with both the detail and the overhangs. Even though we turned up the print speed to reduce the print time, the Sovol SV06 Plus was still able to produce beautiful results.

Despite using a brim, we still encountered a small amount of warping on the corners of the print. It’s possible that this is caused by a lack of sufficient adhesion from the build plate, but it could also be this specific filament we used for the first time.

Dodecananas Vase

This massive vase came out great as well. We pushed the hot end with thicker and wider layers, but the Sovol SV06 Plus handled it without complaining.

Alternatives to the Sovol SV06 Plus

Sovol SV06 vs SV06 Plus

Choosing between the Sovol SV06 and SV06 Plus 3D printers is straightforward. If you are on a budget and want a 3D printer with a larger build volume, touch screen, as well as faster maximum print speeds, the SV06 Plus is the way to go.

If price is your main concern, or if you have limited space on your desk and don’t need a larger build volume, the SV06 should provide you with the same great-quality prints.

Most of the features of the two machines are the same, however, and you can’t really go wrong with either. In the end, it depends on what print volume you need and your budget.

Creality Ender 3 Max Neo

The Creality Ender 3 Max Neo is a decent alternative to the Sovol SV06 Plus 3D printer. They fall in the same category in both price and build volume.

The Ender 3 Max Neo has a slightly smaller build volume of 300x300x320 mm. In practice, this difference is negligible. The machine is more solidly built, however, with a full-metal frame instead of Sovol’s aluminum and plastic approach.

In comparison, the SV06 Plus costs a bit more but has the features to compensate for that. It comes with a touch screen, PEI-coated print surface, as well as a quality direct extruder with an all-metal hot end. You don’t see any of those features on the Ender 3 Max Neo.

For those reasons, we think the SV06 Plus provides better value. Still, if you are on a budget, the Ender 3 Max Neo is a decent alternative.

Anycubic Kobra Max

Just like the SV06 Plus, the Anycubic Kobra Max is a large 3D printer that provides great value. The machines share a lot of features, like an auto-leveling sensor and a touch screen with intuitive menus.

The Anycubic Kobra Max is more massive, however. With a 400 x 400 x 450 print area, it has almost 2.5 times the build volume of the Sovol SV06 Plus. It also comes with a reinforced all-metal frame and a lighter Bowden extruder.

While the SV06 Plus is smaller, it has a more precise direct extruder, an all-metal hot end, a PEI-coated print bed, and does not take up as much space.

The Kobra Max costs about 50% more, so it’s only a better option if you know for sure that you need its massive build volume. Otherwise, the Sovol SV06 Plus is the better choice.

Bottom Line: Should You Get the Sovol SV06 Plus?

Based on our experience with the Sovol SV06 Plus, we can heartily recommend this machine to anyone looking for a larger 3D printer on a budget. There’s no other manufacturer offering the same combination of features and print quality at this $399 price point.

Its planetary-geared extruder, automatic bed leveling, PEI-coated print surface, and intuitive touchscreen UI make this 3D printer easy to use if you are a beginner looking to 3D print without too much hassle.

At the same time, the SV06 Plus offers plenty for more experienced users as well. The all-metal hot end and access to advanced settings give a great deal of flexibility, allowing you to tailor the 3D printing experience to your needs.

With the addition of the touch screen, more powerful power supply, filament sensor, and improved spool holder, Sovol shows that it is listening to feedback and continuously improving its products. That is also something we can get behind.

As for the shortcomings, the heavy use of plastic components and the use of unsupported linear rods are the most notable to us. You will have a more difficult time getting high print quality at faster speeds.

The poor adhesion of the rubber feet tape and ‘loose’ paint on the print bed are not ideal either. Both of those things are easily fixed, however.

Then again, this machine costs less than $400. If that’s what it takes to keep the price down, we understand and believe it is a good overall trade-off.

At the end of the day, the Sovol SV06 Plus is an easy-to-use large 3D printer that will provide you with high-quality prints in a variety of filaments. We don’t think you can find a better value in this class at the moment.
