I currently own a 3D printer from Anycubic (kossel delta plus) and I make cosplay armor with which I participate in various events.
So far I'm working on my next Warcraft cosplay and I'm using the ‘bq’ filament, which is great for quality-price ratio https://www.bq.com/en/pla
For the software I use Simplify 3D which has always given me excellent results in slicing. https://www.simplify3d.com/
For ‘mesh’ editing I use ‘zbrush’, a great program that encompasses (oppure includes) everything you could do with mesh editing. https://pixologic.com/
