Cheapest price since the 20% off deal that one day. It's $200 on Jet clean. If you can still use the TRIPLE15 coupon(AKA customer with less than 3 purchases) then you can apply that making it $170. You can save another $4 by paying with debt card and waving free return.

Filament advice, you can get cutequeen for $13+ on Amazon. Very good filament. Evertech is $10, but they won't ship in every state for some reason. Chem is $5 per 250G at Fry's. Which makes it cheaper than the hatchbox from Amazon everyone raves about and you get to have a variety of colors/material a quarter kilo at a time. Chem is good stuff.

Personally I like Repetier but I sometimes use Meshmixer for the supports it generates. Cura has a great slicing engine but since that part is integrated for use in Repetier I haven't used it much lately. You can save your STL in any of the apps and then print from the one you prefer.

All the links I listed have Mac, PC, and Unix versions

There are a ton of variables but my guess would be $5-$20.

I've had this printer for about 3 weeks and I love it. It's my first 3d printer so I can't compare it to others but it's great for a beginner. The ability to learn 3d modeling then be holding it in your hands 1-5 hours later is amazing. Once I got it leveled and bought kaptan tape I've had 100% success (printing, my modeling still needs a lot of work).

Thanks! Been looking at this for a while, about $45 savings over anywhere else that I could find. Good reviews for the price! Also thanks for the filament tip!

Here is a very thorough review:

Looks like cutequeen has some very mixed reviews. Are you sure about the name "evertech"? When I search amazon for evertech filament I get 0 results. There are no Fry's in my area or I'd love to be able to pick up some $5/250g packs to get some variety. I do have monoprice and their eSun filament is pretty good for the price ($15 iirc.)

As to this printer, I picked up one and I must say that for the price it's great.

Any guesstimate on what it would cost to print a chess set of 32 pieces with the king being 2.5'' tall ?

Noob here but if I got this what kind of software for PC would I need and is it free? Making a chess set would be pretty cool if possible wonder what the pieces would feel like. Never held anything that was made with a 3D printer.

Ooops. It's not evertech, it's excelvan.

Cutequeen is my go to filament. Works great. Although the price has gone up. It used to be $12/kg.
