Hi friends, I'm interested in getting a 3D printer. Since it's going to be my 1st one I'm a little confused which one to get. Could you check the website below and leave feedback, thank you.

It depends on how much you want to spend, but if you want a good 3D printer i suggest you to get a Prusa I3 MK3S original.

I agree, if you are just starting, the Prusa kits are great.  In fact, I would recommend building your own kit rather than buying one pre-built as it will force you to understand more about the operation of the printer and how to maintain it.

If you are pressed for time, you can get one pre-built.

Hi friends, I'm interested in getting a 3D printer. Since it's going to be my 1st one I'm a little confused which one to get.

Oh, I'm currently trying to make choice too.

First of all, budget for prebuilt 3D printer with advanced kinematics types (like CoreXY) would be x2-x3-xN times more expensive, than an entry-line Cartesian-based Prusa-i3-like. If you want to get basic prebuilt printer with decent quality, I would recommend to look on Creality Ender 3 or 3-PRO (or 5/5-PRO if you want a bit more speed and print quality). That would cost about $230-$700. Pros: pretty big community and decent support. Cons: price and lower fun.

If you decide to build it yourself, there's a plenty of opensource designs of veeerrrry sweet printers, based on CoreXY-kinematics. It's possible to build a CoreXY printer for about $200. Just search for "diy corexy". Also search for "3D printer kinematics types".

What is this for?


« Reply #5 on: April 14, 2020, 01:13:41 13:13 »

I'm probably going to get a Sovol SV01, its generally described as the printer that the Ender3 should have been. Dual Z, direct drive extruder but sadly still with a shitty creality mainboard. It grates to buy a printer and immediately throw away the main board, sadly nobody sell the SV01 with a decent mainbaord.

The other option was the Prusa Mini but the wait list is ridiculous.

Thanks for all the suggestions and info my friends. I was interested in getting one from the website, because it seemed for people like me that need something cost-effective.

I would get an Creality Ender 3, is a very popular and cheap model which has a great community and has a lot of things made by other users. A site to download 3D models is thingiverse.com. You will find lots of useful mods to the Ender 3

I can echo the Creality Ender 3 recommendations. It's a fantastic printer, and the value for money is really good.

Good luck with it. Let us know what your final choice is, and how you get on.

The ender 5 is another printer which is new to the market. The Ender 3 V2 is an upgrade over the old Ender 3. I would go with the Ender 3 V2, as the Ender 5 is not so well tested.

In this case the saying "buy cheap, buy twice" is perfect. Smiley

I just ordered a Creality3D Ender-5 DIY 3D Printer Kit as it seems sturdier and larger.

I will keep you posted.

Trouble is, I have no idea how to produce the designs . I dont mean stl outputs etc.

I was looking for a budget one , I got "Anycubic i3 Mega" for its good reviews, for one year usage I can say it never let me down except lifting problem for ABS material, it has a workaround solution which is easily done while printing, currently they open pre-order for the new S version if you can wait, or you can get the original one from AliExpress for less than $200, If you need larger printing volume you can try the Mega-X version.

Have a look at Fusion 360 from Autodesk. It's (legally!) free for personal/non-commercial use, and there are loads of training resources online. It's pretty nice to use for 3D CAD. I have used Solidworks (incredible, but a steep learning curve), and also Alibre Design. That's ok, but so very, very, bug ridden.

Fusion 360 should keep you happy for a while.

Good luck.

I have an Anycubic 4Max Pro and it is so far so good. At least it is worth its price. There are a few quirks which need to be addressed probably not unlike many other 3D printers. The cures to those problems are all available on Youtube.

Personally i use Rhinoceros to create the stl, however it is a complex program to use and learn, on the other hand it offers excellent results such as the quality of the stl, often other cad create non-perfect stl that require adjustments using appropriate tools such as netfab.
An excellent alternative, open source, is OpenScad, simple to use and allows you to get perfect stl, also there are many models, customizable, made with this tool.
For completeness i also mention SolidWorks and Inventor, two top products for the creation of 3D models, but very complex and require a lot of time, study, before being able to master them.

This was a good suggestion. I watched an "intro to Fusion 360" type of video on youtube and it looked pretty easy. So the next day I installed it, and was quickly designing models. For a 3D newbie I was pretty happy.
