This looks like the best price recently, and the best from their US warehouse. Note that it is a preorder which will close on August 17th, beginning to ship August 20th, so it will still be a few weeks before you receive it.

Grabbing my popcorn to watch the comments section turn to a gun debate rather than the great deal being discussed.

I think, under current laws, all you would need to print is the lower receiver to be able to build an AR15 without needing to register any components. All other items can be purchased legally over the internet and it would meet the law about having a certain percentage of it metal.

Maximum print area is 330 x 330 x 400 mm so not all in one go, no.

BTW the last time I ordered something from GearBest it took about 6 weeks to arrive. Time before that it took 5 weeks. But hey, everything is dirt cheap.

330 x 330 x 400mm print area with heated bed. Runs off RAMPS so you can flash other firmware.

you're aware guns aren't single pieces, right?

you can create a lower receiver at any time for your own use, you cannot ever transfer ownership to anyone else. the materials just need to be less that 80% of a fully manufactured lower. you cannot yet completely 3d print a lower out of plastic. the support for the buffer tube that supports the main spring is far too weak to last or trust(my opinion) with your own safety when operating the firearm.

the stories in the news are about the distribution of the files, which are already all over the internet, torrents, public dropboxes, google drives, its all out there for you already. this will fail again, theres already been precedent that the anarchists cookbook which contains bomb-making howto's is protected by the 1st. You can indisputably create your own firearms in your home, that is the law- state laws notwithstanding.

Once we get another supreme court seat we will get rid of those stupid state laws too, dont worry lads >Smilie

Don't get this unless your prepared for a disappointing experience as a beginner.
I have 4 3D printers and about 4 years of experience so far.
I have a creality CR-10 (a printer that is also in the large format category), and is very similar in almost every aspect to this one.
Reasons why this will be a pain:
  • The heated bed is woefully underpowered. My CR-10 takes 10+ minutes without an enclosure to hit 55 C and because of the surface area, it has to run the heater the whole time (The Tronxy is even bigger).
  • The size of this underpowered bed will have large temperature fluctuations and differences between the center (where most prints reside) and near the perimeter, causing layer adhesion issues on larger prints.
  • I can't find information on this, but the bed is probably only rated for 12V DC. All options to rectify this will cost more money. Budget in an extra $100 minimum to fix this issue (24V bed and power supply, 120V bed, enclosure/pray, etc.)...If you can even find another bed this size.
Disclaimer, I have no personal experience with this particular machine, just my 2 cents.

Do yourself a favor and look through your local ads or craigslist and try to find a nicer one. There are a ton of people that buy their first machine and get in way over their head (many good deals to be had).

Side note: The last time I heard of preorders on 3D printers that were super popular was for the CR-10. I waited and bought mine elsewhere after the absolute shitshow that gearbest put forth. Do some research/soul searching before you order anything big from gearbest.
