    3d printer kits

    So I just spent the past few hours putting a price sheet together to build my own Reprap Pursa I3 3d desktop printer.

    I think I was up to about $300 already and started looking at geeetech's i3. It was only $300 (and something like $120 S/H). So lets call it $400 and change.

    Or I can buy this one:
    http://www.amazon.com/Geeetech-Trans...ech+3d+printer

    $395.....

    Might as well buy it off amazon and have returns and whatnot protection there.

    I have a few changes I'd like to make to the design long term, most likely I'll buy parts here/there afterwards if I buy this one, piecing together a new one as a small CNC router. Though I'm not sure if the plastic parts will hold up to the vibrations from a router! If they will I can recreate some of the parts out of something else then, or some harder plastic instead of filament.

    Oh well, all a pipe dream right now, but getting closer in my slush fund, at least I hope I am

    Why buy replacement parts when you can reproduce them on your 3D printer?

    Well there is that, and I found a different kit for about $50 less, so we'll see how this month treats my bank account
