3D printer suggestion

Does anyone have any tips on a 3D printer they would recommend? I am looking for something sub $250. I was considering the Ender 3 due to print size and cost. But some of the reviews concern me.

Any good tips on a printer?

I have heard that one is the craze lately for affordable table top printing. Im a member of table top groups on facebook and there is a great deal of cool stuff being done on them. I have a snapmaker which runs a bit higher than those as I got mine on kickstarter. I freaking love my printer. I run it nonstop. Ive made heroscape terrain, pieces for frostgrave. I print minis and terrain and they look great. I wish I had one of these much sooner than I got mine. I just bought 4.4 lbs of filament for 26 bucks today. I buy mine on amazon for about 12.99 a roll shipped to my house. If your a tabletop junkie like I am its well worth the price. Good luck and welcome to a new addiction.

That will be a big time sink for all that stuff. It does look cool. Im passing on that because I can spend that money on filament and print tons of cool stuff off of thingiverse for free.

The Ender 3 looks really cool. I may give one of those a try.

What is the size of your print bed TREX?

Re: 3D printer suggestion

We bought an Ender 3 about 6 months ago to test it and a few other inexpensive printers. We love it so much we bought another. We have reviews on our web site and affiliate links. Hygroundtiles.com
Best of luck!
