I just got my first 3D printer on January 20th, 2017! It is the Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer, and for $199.99 dollars, I absolutely LOVE IT! It has the heated bed, can print up to 4.7 x 4.7 x 4.7 inch objects, can take any kind of filament and much more! This printer also came assembled which many printers you buy you must spend hours and have the knowledge to put them together. Overall for the price, this right now is the hands down best purchase so far as a 3D Printer goes that you can make!
DO A SEARCH HERE ON MY WEBSITE FOR 3D PRINTER AND YOU WILL FIND LOADS OF VIDEOS I HAVE MADE AS WELL AS THE PROJECT FILES YOU CAN USE FOR FREE!
The name on this printer is called “IIIP Printer”
I found our that hair spray when you spray on the heated bed and let it sit for a while, basically turns into some awesome glue and holds about anything you are wanting to print down! Also, my first filament I got was ABS, I recommend you do not start printing with ABS because it warps and takes very hot temps that this printer cannot reach, so printing ABS with this printer is much harder.
However, I do recommend you buying FLA filament to print with, as it does not need as hot as temps as ABS does and it does not warp near as bad, plus it cost the same!
Make sure on your 3D Printer that your print bed/platform is 100% level, otherwise you will end up with a mess, just trust me! You may have to do it over and over, but move your extruder to each corner and place a piece of paper under it… Raise or lower your platform bed until that piece of paper can still move, but when you move it around you feel friction between the extruder and the bed.
Below are some of my projects from day 1 to current day that I have printed with this 3D Printer. I Love it!
