    the only down side is that it will only do PLA. Do you guys use nylon much or is it really difficult to do the engineering plastics?
    Agreed, for that money, its not worth the time to design, buy, build and test IMHO.

    Any idea how much to import it though? not available yet either.


    I'd recommend a prusa www.prusa3d.com
    I have the previous to the last model and works like a charm. With the new one they have won best printer of the year and looks like a really good printer on a budge
    That one is about 1k, are the clones as good?

    I'm currently using PLA (and some ABS for tougher small parts) on my (275) Pusa i3 clone kit, I'm in the process of modifying for Nylon and for larger ABS parts as I have product designs for parts which require the better engineering plastics with higher glass transition temperatures and better durability than PLA.

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    That's the one I went for, I don't think you can beat it for the money and support is excellent via email and telephone, Neil from Model Engineer has that one too, have a look at his posts over there.

    I like the look of the Wanahao.
    I'd avoid plastic framed printers like the plague, Aluminium or Steel construction at least means you have a good base for a rebuild or upgrade project at some future point.
    Nozzles and Throats which aren't commonly available as generic spares are a bad idea as are machines not running the most popular open-source firmware versions.
    Printers with the hot end and nozzle very close to the extruder drive may well prove problematic should you wish to print one of the more flexible filaments,

    Some of the cheap ones are not even plastic, but thin plywood.
