3D Printers

So I am looking at getting myself one.

I don't need multiple extruder heads or the ability to print in metal.

I have been looking at the Reality Ender 3 V2 and the Anycubic Vyper. The Vyper costs more, but not much more than the Ender if you were to add the upgrade to enable to Ender to auto-level its bed, but the Ender will always have only the one Z drive screw on one side of the gantry vs 2 on the Vyper. There are other things that make the Vyper look like a good deal.

Does anyone on here have any experience with either of these printers?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

@Atak knows his way around a 3D printer. I was meant to be buying one recently but the chap selling it decided he needed more, not less of them in the end!!

I have also been looking at the Ender 5, but again, for the same price as the Vyper, you still have manual bed leveling and the bed is cantilevered off a single Z axis screw. The only advantage of the 5 is the footprint doesn’t need to be bigger than the frame size.

And now I have been told about resin 3D printers.

Why is everything so difficult?

We bought our 25 year old son Liam (who still lives at home) this 3d printer for Christmas. What an amazing piece of kit, Sharon has a new printed jewelery box, there were various new printed objects appearing around the house.

So I showed him these drawings for a drill guide that @gmendozahad sent over. 

Got home from work today to find this on my desk.
