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
