    I have a 3D printer since beginning of 2018. A Original Prusa i3 MK2S. I use it a lot, mostly for RC and scale parts. Just finished building a enclosure for it. I print mostly PLA and PLA Pro and PETG, had not much luck with ABS.
    It is a constant learning proces. I did notice that not all filaments are great, even do my printer is used a lot. Just printed my first body, a Ford Transit Mark I for a scaler build for my brother. Just started to learn a bit about designing and printing my own parts. Untill now it is a good investment. Only thng is that I sometimes miss a second printer.

    Picked up a Creality Ender 3, been printing in ABS and PLA mostly. Learning curve is steep but I'm getting more and more usable prints.

    I've got an Ender 3, too. I'm really enjoying the experience so far. The machine prints nicely, though one fan failed pretty quickly. Easy and cheap to fix. So far I've mostly been printing simple scale accessories I've been working on to practice my design skills.

    I have an Anycubic I3 Mega. I've had it for over a year now and it's been a good machine, only needing wear items replaced (hotend, bowden tube, ultra base from my own stupidity). It was simple to setup initially and puts out good prints.

    Hi,I have the ender-5 for about 3 months now and I am really happy about it. did some improvements and learned al lot. Starting was not so difficult but improving and tuning is really a trial and error process. I have a box full of supports and trashed prints, hehehehe.
    But now I found some good settings and starting my Golf MK2 project.

    I’ve used my Monoprice/Wanhao 3plus for a full year. Micro Swiss hot end, bettter fans and ducts,alloy platform. Works great on PETG but is noisier than the Creality CR20 pro that I just picked up for PLA.
    OOB the Creality is a winner, first print was 10.5 hours and perfect on “dynamic” mode(.16 layers)
    Same price on both at $299.00



    Hang up and DRIVE!

    I'm running an Ender 3 Pro. Only mods so far are the Creality Capricorn Bowden tubing. One of these days I'm gonna buy a roll of PTEG and give it a shot.

    Default Ender 3 Pro

    I just ordered a Ender 3 Pro from creality3d.com

    Only $209 with free shipping.

    What filament should I start out with?

    Total noob here.

    Congrats! I'd start with PLA. Super easy to work with, doesn't off-gas all that much, and pretty much the easiest to work with out of the gate.

    Got it assembled last night, adjusted the plate and started printing the dog off the SD card.
