I just received my new Maker Select Mini today, and so far I have been nothing but stupefied by its quality considering it was only $200. I only followed the instructions on the use manual, and filled in the blanks on the Cura profile based on previous knowledge. At the time I write this nobody else is in this group, but take heed to all those who have issues, there is a way to make it work
It seems that making this group was a mistake in light of this https://www.thingiverse.com/groups/monoprice-select-mini-owners. Do what you will with this information.
