Hey everyone, I am looking for opinions and advice on 3D printers. I am hoping to finally get my own 3D printer early this winter. Problem is, I know barely anything about 3D printers. I know the general concept of how they work, but I have no idea what makes one printer better than another. So what features should I be looking for? I've heard that certain steppers and extruders are better than others. Then there are self leveling beds and height detection features. What about filaments and filament sizes. My budget is under $500, but I would like to find something around $300 or less. I am more than comfortable spending the time to build from parts, but I do not want to spend weeks tuning the machine to get satisfying prints. Thanks everyone!
