The main printer that I am using is the Anycubic Chiron, a massive printer (in my opinion) with a print bed of 400mm x 400mm, and a height of 450mm. The filament that I use the most is Hatchbox PETG, 1.75mm. In order to cut my models I use Netfabb Premiere and to slice all of my models I use Cura 4.6. I really enjoy the user friendliness of both of these programs.
My printer is a trooper when it comes to printing large objects all at once. Many printers with large beds have a suffering print quality, but this is not the case for the Anycubic Chiron. With auto leveling, auto filament run out detection, a touch screen, and a glass bed, this printer is a champion for the low price of around $450. The pros far outnumber the cons, which include the plastic extruder and a lack of upgrades available on the internet. I highly recommend this printer for those who need a large bed but are not wanting to cough up more than $500 for the hobby.

For the bulk of the finishing work, I use a Festool Palm sander, which is excellent for cleaning up the print efficiently. This tool also helps keep your work area clean because as it sands away material, it vacuums it up. What I do not like about the Festool palm sand is the inability to reach into areas of finer detail, which I then need to hand sand. Besides that small con, I love this tool and would highly recommend it to anybody looking to increase the speed at which they finish prints. More information on the tool and all of their other products can be found here (https://www.festoolproducts.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwhtT1BRCiARIsAGlY51Kx-8C3fqF5jkusrjd0EB0C08VxtlNigLiMCGUDCULxFhJ5x3H2yaIaAqIoEALw_wcB)
I then finish the print off the print with primer and wet sanding.
Concerning the project I am working on, I have decided to tackle the task of 3D printing the Mark 17 Iron Man suit, Heartbreaker. I love the model work that the team of Do3D has done and their communication with me throughout the project has been outstanding. While I am nowhere close to being done, I have recently picked it back up and am going full force at the project, print by print. The proportions of the suit have been amazing so far. My first Iron man project was free iron man arm file and arc reactor found on thingiverse. The amazing results are what inspired me towards taking the leap and buying professionally made files. I am also currently working on printing a Mandalorian helmet. Here are some pictures of my previous projects and the current progress I am making on Heartbreaker.
