    I'm very excited to (finally) get this section of PK started! :weee

    Please post all your questions and comments into new threads so we can get this party going. If you have friends with 3D printers, please encourage them to visit and share some of their experiences, suggestions, prints, etc!


    :thumbsup

    A bit THANK YOU to @The Hat for helping to get this section kicked off!

    Now @stratman can confidently place an order for a 3D printer knowing he can get good reliable help here if he gets stuck in one of his projects...:D

    If anyone can go the extra few shillings, then the Monoprice 13860 would be worth the extra spend...

    Go big or go home!

    Now, if the 3D printer can make me another functioning MP830 AND print head then THAT would sell me on one! :)

    No, it can’t but it can reproduce and replace some of the parts inside your printer, that might have got broken or worn, like plastic gears.

    3D printers can make themselves, which sounds incredible but it's not, except for wires, print extruder, fan, switches and PCB board, it can Practically reproduce itself, an inkjet printer on the other hand can only print a photo of itself...
