    I would recommend getting the kit. Apart from the fact that it's a lot cheaper, you learn an awful lot about how the printer works and is set up by doing it this way, and if you want to tweak or ever have any problems to solve then you're in a much better place to understand what's happening.

    I'm trying my best with a geetech i3 prob atm. Some really infuriating problems currently. I'll fight through and at the same time save for a prusa Mk3, which I'll get after the summer.

    So is this the official ocuk 3d printer thread :)

    I tend to frequent facebook groups but thought I would have a look and see what the PC building guys are doing.

    I have a Zaribo I built from scratch in MK3 form that is my main printer and I have a CR-10 that I turned into a MK3 that I call Crearibo. Its on thingiverse if you want to check it just search crearibo.

    Trying to find ways to incorporate my PC stuff with my 3D printing. So far I have designed a new case for my aging goldtouch numeric keypad.

    Try fusion 360 its free in a sense and I find it really easy to use after watching some tutorials.

    Cool you are in Suffolk so am I. Feels like no one in Norfolk or Suffolk has 3d printers.

    I am, yeah. Been into 3d printing for a while as you can see from my signature \/ if it's showing, but basically I make YouTube videos, post in Instagram and Twitter etc as well as now selling filament.

    I've used fusion360 and TinkerCAD just not found that thing I need to design.
