I'll start the build this weekend, and for the fun of it I will make a timelapse of it ;)

@PaulJ_2.0 Made a really strong case for it, when I asked for recommendations:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2096

And then I had weak minute and some money... I stood no chance ;)

Fantastic!

I need to have a look at upgrading the frame on mine, its currently what looks like black laser cut Perspex. I need something more rigid, but for just under £100, what can you expect, but I want to start using it more when we move house and I hopefully have a better workspace.
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ultimate 1MB, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k +APE Warp) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg), 1040STF long button floppy, 2x 1040 STFMs + Gotek, 2x 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher, Mega ST1, Mega ST4, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...

I bought the Ender 3 version. The metal frame does make the difference and being a prusia clone means lots of possible upgrades.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

A colleague of mine bought an Anycubic i3 Mega one or two years ago. He is usually a perfectionist, but to my surprise he only says good things about it ;) And the prints I saw really looked great.

Stupidly I asked him to talk me out of buying a 3D printer. But even his wife said, I should get one ;)

You'll love it.
You have purchased the printer all others are measured against.
