Hardware I use:
Creality Cr10s Pro V2
Excellent printer out of the box, no customization needed
Great detail prints
HUGE build plate area
Strongly recommend to anyone with medium budget beginning 3d printing
Bed- leveling tricky at first to learn
Loud fans (easily upgradable)
Bed plate material- hard to remove prints from, needs to be upgraded to glass or a wham bam
Filament I have tried
Amazon Basics Filament white- EXCELENT would highly recommend
eSun clear filament – ALSO great!
Layer up black/red – lower quality, do not recommend it
Custom built PC ..of course
Specs- 1070 ti, 16 gb Ram, i7 – runs and slices FAST – I don’t know how people use Cura with low-end parts, it is expensive so Im lucky I had built one before starting this hobby, and highly recommend for anyone planning on working with STL files lots.
Still learning this one, I do recommend, will post more on this method in future
Software I use
Cura (of course !) Cura is by far my favorite software to use. -Recommend
Pro - intuitive, clean, and powerful software
Pro- tree supports setting is great, save filament!
Con- odd glitches for adding supports in extra area an avoids needed ones.
Con- only made for creating g-code files( gosh I wished these guys used this UI for a STL file editor!)
Slic3r - recommend
Pro- simple to use
Pro-best slicer available
Con- clunky UI, takes a tad to get used to
TinkerCad.com - recommend
Pro - Great to create STL files!
Con – limited file size
Netfabb – don’t recommend
Pro – can meause 3d items
Con – VERY hard to learn and get used to
Con- measure tool hard to use, hard to make straight points, doesn’t have snapping to point ability
