Re: Which 3D printer to buy?

Hi guys! As for me, the best 3d printer for beginners is Wanhao Duplicator i3 mini.

https://www.wanhaousa.net/product-page/ ... or-i3-mini

The printer costs less than $200. But despite the simplicity of the design and low price, it makes high-quality models, especially if they are from PLA.

Here are some of the main pros and cons: Nothing needs to be further customized and invented. To start the printer and print the model you don't need any special knowledge. But this printer doesn't have any heated platform, the case is open and the print area is small but it still large enough for most projects.

If you want to know more about how to choose the 3d printer and make the right decision, I will recommend reading this article. It was very helpful to me.

Good luck with your choice! :)

I have just bought a Prusai3 Mk3. I bought the kit version.
Got it built....started the “self test”
All axis checks ok but when it went to “searching bed calibration points” it displayed calibration failed check axes.
It had already done the x..y...z axis checks and they were ok.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
