    Ended up going with the Prusa Mk3S Kit, put it together in about 6 hours and prints surprisingly well straight away.

      Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

        Yeah, those guys are spastics. It also looked like shit once it was installed.

          I currently have cnc aluminium but they cheaped out and have the same coil locating bolt/connector orientation for front and rear rotor which is emotional to fit (and requires bending thd coil boot firmly) if you still have an air conditioner pump. Would like to improve design and pay one of you blokes to print in plastic if practical otherwise it will go to a shop and I'll have to get 10 made from aluminium to make it worth while.
          Iíve made a few parts in pc. Seems real strong. Way stronger than abs

            so what printers is everyone recommending at the moment? 400x400x400 or similar? (down to 300x350x300 minumum)

                Oh - ended up with an ender 5+, 350x350x400 - won't do ABS without an enclosure - working on that -

                also there's some firmware bugs.. so maybe wait if you want one.

                      I've done that heaps on my old flashforge - as long as the aircon wasn't blowing on it seemed to be ok - on taller prints you would get some layer shrink/separation

                        Dude, WTF happened to your print bed?? Edward Scissor hands trying to remove prints??

                            Firmware fault - like a ghost in the Y limit switch - thinks it's gone all the way to the back, so drives as far forward as it can - and then raises the Z until the BL senses it - but at full forward the BL is off the bed... so it drives it up until it gets bored - and then starts printing... ran for 30+ mins while i was on my way to work like that.

                              I need to finish my 3D printer but in all honesty i have not had time to do the last little steps to get it up and running. wish there was somewhere i could just drop it off and be like SOLVE IT

                                Yeah wow, that sucks, I'm shocked at the gouges it took out of the print bed.
