For some time now, I’ve been thinking about buying a 3D printer…….Just never really actually pulled the trigger
The lead up to the purchase………..
I decided to sell the PCB to chap over in Denmark that’s currently writing music for many to be released games…
I digress!. With a couple of hundred quid burning a hole in my pocket, I started the 3D printing Research
What a minefield!
Needless to say, many days clicking, ‘researching’ and generally spending waaaaay too much time in one of the few quiet sanctuaries that a parent of two kids can be left alone for more than 5 minutes…
I eventually discovered Reddit’s 3D printing thread (the May version, which updated to the June version – now the July Version)
Some things that became immediately obvious
- There’s a LOT of 3D printers
- There’s a LOT of prices for 3D printers
- Monoprice seems to have a following
- Some Wanhao printers seem to have a following
……………This wasn’t going to be easy
