Thats a crazy question. Everyone knows you get a 3d printer so that you can print parts to improve your 3d printer!!! laugh out loud

I bought this from Amazon a few weeks ago. It's my first 3D printer and I absolutely love it. There is lots of information and build plans on http://www.thingiverse.com and YouTube. The only modifications I did to mine to make it better (in my opinion) are to replace the carriage plate in favor of a stiff one (off of Amazon) and to print up the Z-brace kit.

Now I am venturing into Fusion 360 and teaching myself how to create useful things!

An awesome deal at $255!

I have owned this printer for a little over a year now and while it is a pretty good setup for the price I have some major reservations about recommending it to anyone. At this price point expect lots of upgrades, troubleshooting and fiddling to get this consistently printing good/great. Also, the most major oversight for this machine is the poorly designed heated bed setup I had two melted connectors and finally a fried motherboard that I replaced because it can't properly power the heated bed. If you plan on purchasing this then review the upgrades at the site below and realize to get a really great printer you will need to do most of them. Take special notice of the mosfet upgrade which is what I now use on my RAMPS 1.4 board.

I used my printer to print a proton wand/gun for my ghostbusters cosplay and now I am making some other very nicely designed 3d toys/models that I am trying to custom paint/finish for just general collecting or gifts. I also have some background in CAD so being able to design then print is a pretty amazing futuristic thing to do.

Also get a raspberry pi and start running octoprint. It's makes thing much easier that trying to access everything via a scroll wheel and once you hook up a camera you can monitor prints from anywhere in your house or even over the internet.

Trying to dump these before the new models hit I guess. The Select plus never really replaced the V2 due to some quality control issues, but maybe a select plus v2 is coming. Normally 3d printers are excluded from all the sales.

Their new model announcements didn't look to replace this one. From what I saw they are coming out with a new mini and a new higher end one well above the $300 price. Didn't see anything for this size.

Great price and great advice on both mods. The included carriage support plate is a complete POS and will have you fighting strange leveling issues. I also put on the Micro Swiss metal hot end because I run some higher temps sometimes and didn't want any PTFE issues.

I have the mini and i have been using it a lot. Very nice and takes very little space.

I can't recommend enough adding the mosfet(offloading the majority of the power draw from the board) and a glass bed(silky smooth bottom layer and good adhesion with aquanet hairpray)

Most of what I have made so far is a bunch of tchotchke stuff. I have made a few phone/smartwatch charging cradles that are nice. Now that I am getting into Fusion 360, I am hoping to make some more useful stuff for my truck (for instance, a custom mount for a backup camera).
