    I got an XYZPrinting daVinci pro a while back and I'm still learning but now attempting to build a 3D scanner. With a Sony mobile from the MM (Thanks punky_munky) I can do some photogrammetry.

    My first 3d printer arrived yesterday as a belated birthday present to myself. It's an Ender 3 and has been great so far although I think I'm going to get a glass bed for it during the week! Pics of my first prints to follow :D.

    Damn, the XL is a whole new printer. I was hoping for a 30x40 bed and extended rails for the MK3S.
