I've started my journey with 3d printing in december 2019. All the time I'm using 3D kreator motion, which i have got from a family workshop (they're not using it at all, just done few little prints). The printer itself is pretty easy to use, I've never used any 3D printer before, and I'm doing not that bad so far. Menu is clear, easy to understand. About bad sides, main problem is that manufacturer of this printer is no longer on the market, so its very hard to get spare parts, for example i had to buy smaller glass than I need to replace my old bed. And the quality on small print is not the best, but maybe thats the matter of experience.
The thing I'm really happy that I found is the Devil Design filament. First thing, its much cheaper, like close to half price, to other filaments. The quality is really good, layers are very hard, its eastier to break whole piece than separate layers. It comes in many colors, even transparent. Dropping link for their page
So far I've printed a darksaber handle, and a forearm for my Iron Man MK6 cosplay
