Hi all
just by accident I got an email for a 3d DIY printer for $165 US.
(Geeetech prusa 3i clone)GearBest.com
They had me :fro: :thumb: :thumb: and my $$$ in an instant.
Surprise from China
Quick shipping and delivery.
Very nice and precise machining and parts and nothing was missing or failed to work.
Took almost a day to put it together but it had excellent info and vids for the build.
I added a Bowden extruder and got very lucky for help with settings and filaments from a neighbor here in Lake Forest Calif MatterHackers.com
They market a full line of printers, filaments and parts for 3d devices.
Very special gang that have helped me get up and printing as a drop in to their store for help.
Do not miss their slicer software (MatterControl $19 US donation and worth much more)for an easy way to understand and get good prints.
Even includes a quick and easy setup for bed leveling.
Just a piece of excellent software and really nice interface.
They also have a big library of 3d tech info.
Very special people and good friends too.

I am an Architect here in Mission Viejo and feel free to ask for help to connect with MatterHackers or my marginal knowledge on the DIY side of 3d print stuff.
:shock: :shock: :shock:
Maybe we might have a thread for the low budget print people.

I’m close to ordering a printer myself and was looking into the Anet A8 printer.
Now I’m looking again :)
Thanks for sharing.
