    I never said it would be good, lol.

    But you can get an Ender 3 for that money and I've seen good prints from them.

    It's not all sci-fi objects, sometimes we print useful stuff as well - laptop stand for my desk at uni.

    Was that assembled from multiple printed parts or printed in one go? Either way, it looks amazing!

    Also how did you get the end result to have such a smooth finish? I thought PLA was too brittle to sand?

    Acetone vapour technique? Smooths the sides by partially melting it!

    Nearly finished building my second printer. All self built with many of the components designed by me in Fusion 360. The base design is the AM8 but I've modified it significantly. The one in the enclosure is going to be upgraded to MGN12 rails and 2040 extrusion fairly soon.
    The controller is a normal RAMPS 1.6 with 2560 combo. Running TMC2130 drivers with SPI connections. Extruder is a Bondtech BMC with E3D V6 hot end.
    The bottom printer is a Geeetech i3 Pro B that is also heavily modified with a Titan extruder and E3D V6 hot-end and TMC2208 drivers.
