    I have an Ultibots D300vs+, pricey, but worth every penny. The Prusa i3 MK3 is supposed to be really nice as well.

    I'm looking at the Prusa i3 MK3, but the delta design with a heated bed looks great too!

    If anyone is up for 3D printing something, I'd like to get more info on some pricing for a product. Send me a PM if you have a printer and might be able to print something for me and ship it. [expecting to pay you for it of course!]

    I have an XYZ Davinci 1.0A. Wifey got it on sale before Christmas for $400. The only thing I don't like about it are the proprietary, expensive filament cartridges. BUT...as any reefer worth his salt, I found a way around it!

    I got my husband a Creality3D CR10S for Christmas. And buy “got” I mean he picked it out and I just wrapped it....much like any reefing gifts he gets me! We’re currently even now....I have 2 tanks and he has 2 printers. :D

    I'm looking closely at the 10s for my second printer. Can I ask where you got it, and are you satisfied with them?

    We ordered it from Gear Best because they had a really good Black Friday sale on it. Since they are a Chinese company, it took 3 or 4 weeks to get it after ordering.

    My husband says if he was to get another one, he’d get it from TinyMachines3d because they do quality control on the machine after it ships from China and if there are any problems you can get warranty service in a couple of days.

    Great info and intentions in this chat! I'm a 2nd year engineering student with experience on fusion 360 and solid works, I like to keep nano reeftanks so making small appliances for them via a 3D printer is what I'm interested in accomplishing! I would definitely like to collaborate with other 3D reef hobbyists

    That is a TINY build area. At less than 4” square, you really have at most 3.5” of useable space. These style printers are ok if you only want to print thin, vertical pieces but there are better options (though the entry price is higher).

    I ordered an Anet A8 the other day (200 x 200 x 240mm of printing space), it should arrive this week :eek: I have a long list of upgrades to print for the printer itself and then I am excited to get into printing some things for my reef! Watching lots of tutorial videos for Fusion 360 in the mean time :p

    Looking at Amazon offerings on it and upgrade parts, I'm really impressed. Did you get it from them? A company I never heard of (GearBest) is having a flash sale on it for $145.99. But they're apparently outside the US.

    PLEASE keep us updated on how the build goes.

    I'll definitely post again when I get it built and test it out. I've read a lot of good and a lot of bad reviews about the Anet printers but the bad reviews seem to be more from people who expect a plug and play out of the box set up which is not what this printer is.

    I'm in Australia and found a listing on eBay for $218AUD shipped and it would only take 2-3 weeks to arrive. It would have been $299AUD shipped from Amazon AU and from GearBest it would have been $222AUD shipped. I don't really care about saving $4 but I read a lot of really bad things about the long shipping time and the very bad customer service from GearBest which made me go with the eBay listing. At least if anything goes wrong with the eBay purchase I know I can take it up with eBay and PayPal to get it sorted.

    My hub’s newest 3D printer (3D printers are like tanks....you can’t have just 1) was bought through GearBest. Shipping was a little slow - took probably 3 weeks - but we couldn’t beat the price.

    I don’t know why, but having to print parts for the printer still gets me every time. ;Hilarious

    I think it would be cool to have an overflow guard printed. I am sick of having to fish my clownfish out of the over flow. Some how he ends up there at least once every couple of months. In my mind this would be a vertical extension of the over flow for the the part above the water is taller. I wouldn’t just want a cover that the fish in question would just end up died up laying on top of.
