total beginners questions

Hi there, i am seriously thinkng of buying a 3d printer for domestic use, nthing commercial but the quality needs to be decent still, i would like to make in the first instance some adapters for my astrophotography setup, nothing however is that big that needs to be made

so would a budget of around £200 be a good starting point for the machine and if so whats the general recommendations for the type, im ok with chinese equipment as they tend to be cheap and of ok quality (although i know sometimes you can buy a lemon) as i have a chinese 700x500 laser engraver thats been amazing and a 600x900 cnc router (that ive not really used but again is ok)

also what software am i going to need and is this free or paid for? this all needs to be factored into the overall price of buying this setup, i dont want any surprises when ive bought a machine for £200 and then i need to spend another £500 on software

thank you very much in advance
