Hi guys,

We've just got a UpBox+ 3D printer and work and it's convinced me I need one at home  :laugh: can anyone recommend a decent printer that not too much hassle to keep running, budget might stretch to 1k though i'd rather pay much less  :laugh:

I'd want something to print ABS and TPU.

Original Prusa MK3 if you have that sort of budget fully built I believe it is 1K as a kit 700  but you will have to go and check it out.

If your willing to do some work there are much cheaper options such as a CR10 which can be excellent and give a bigger print volume for 500 but you may end up doing certain upgrades not used one but have seen the results for an acquaintance that are so good it is untrue

Doug has given good choices but if you go for the Creality 3D CR-10, make sure you get the upgraded CR-10S a friend has made the mods himself and it's definitely worth the extra cost.

I've had a good think, and I'm considering getting one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Creality-CR-10-S-3D-Printer-Black-UK-STOCK-Large-Build-Size-300-300-400mm-/372274724681?hash=item56ad4d7f49

Could anyone recommend what material I should start with?
