I am researching the possibility of taking the plunge and buying a 3d printer either a hobby version or a v flash or even a SBRP (Roland MDX40 for example). I’d be buying this to facilitate me building parts for a large scale model I am building, I’m looking for ease of use, decent resolution and a half sensible build size (250mm x 200mm x 200mm).
- How much money is budgeted for this 3D printing? If it’s not much, then the only option is one of the inexpensive 3D printer kits. If a lot more, then heavy-duty commercial options are possible
- How much time can Andy dedicate to building and maintaining a 3D printer? If it’s not a lot of time, then assembled printers or a print service should be the focus
- What qualities must the resulting object have? What size (see above)? What durability? Strength? Color?
