I spent closer to 400. But i used real wood for the frame, fried a mega and spent extra on pet sheets for the bed.
Once you get it tunned it perform as well as anyother machine would. Im getting crazy good prints. Which I’ve been meaning to share more often in my thread.
Ive recently printed some stuff for the bath room, including a coral soap dish and tooth brush cup, and a wall mounts for my echo dot. All came out really nicely, even though the cup got knocked off the bed and is missing a few inches from the top. But it still works and looks good.
I also reprited all my mp3dp parts using the same machine and they all look amazing.
My one suggestion is to download the pursa edition of slic3r. It works wonders.
