Keep thinking about getting the 3D printer, but how much will I use it :think:

£300 just to use it a coupe of times seams a waste, when I can get bits printed for £2-£5 via a company I use.

Did anyone buy this printer ?

Was it really worth it ?

How often do you use it ?

I've got a big project (about 6') coming up where all the parts will need to be 3D printed, worked it all out to coast £450 for printing and postage.

That printer is several years old now. I suspect technology has moved on. It would certainly be worth checking the specs and price of a current machine.

Agree Mark this is an old model, I would like one with a small step size.

All depends on what your prepared to spend on something most people won't use that much. If you're looking for a introduction into 3D printing the Da Vinci Mini is an affordable option and has been high in the polls as being the best budget printer for 2019 with a Print Dimension of 150x150x150mm . The yellow mini has an open filament system with hardened steel nozzle and can print in metallic and carbon PLA (carbon filament) and the best option imo but costs approx £100 more than the da Vinci Mini. Fancy one of these myself :think: great machine for the money and the sales are on.

That Elegoo printer looks amazing, and not too expensive. I could actually be tempted with that, although I don't need a 3D printer at the moment.
I wonder if it will go down to 1/450 scale :think: :lol: :lol: :lol:
