200 Dollar Printer Kits
What We are Looking For
The idea is to build the same printer that I built because I have been happy with it. But you can choose to do this or get something else. My kit is based on the Prussa I3, but is a clone. This saves $500 dollars over the real thing, albeit with a decrease in both quality and features. I think this is a good trade off ( and also leads me to the plan of getting the real thing soon -- now on order ). These are some of the criteria I used/using. The original Prussa pretty much meets all, the clones are a bit off.
- Prints with PLA and ABS
- Heated bed
- Auto leveling
- Open source firmware ( mine seems close but not all the way there )
- High Power power supply ( mine has been ok, but another 10 amps would be nice )
- Industry standard parts
- Open source hardware specs
- High temp extruder
- Offline printing
- LCD Screen
My kit was a Tronxy so based on experience it should work. Here are links that are about right, I still need to review each one, the ones I really do not like will be deleted.
Links on commercial sites go stale fairly quickly, you may have to search again. Also progress makes old printers poor choices.
Key words for the searches look on ebay, amazon, gearbest...... key words: Tronxy Prussa I3 Anet A8 Auto Level Heated Bed
The Actual Links
The real Prussa but not 200 dollars
- Original Prusa i3 MK2 3D Printer kit with LCD This is a 700 dollar kit, and is the "reference" for the other kits.
Reviewed: ( price inc shipping ) Here are 4 I would look at first.
- Tronxy Auto level P802MA 3D Printer High Precision Reprap i3 MK3 Heatbed Marlin Looks like mine, $170 includes some filament, and sd card.
- TRONXY High Precision Reprap P802MA DIY 3d Printer LCD Screen Auto leveling US Looks like mine, $170.
- NEWEST! FDM 3D Printer Precision Reprap tronxy P802E DIY & LCD in USA KN | eBay Looks like mine, $170.
- NEWEST! FDM 3D Printer Precision Reprap tronxy P802E DIY & LCD in USA KN | eBay This is not my Tronxy, but appears to be identical $170
So far I have found the best price on ebay. The following links may be close, but do not fully fit my criteria ( remember part of criteria is that it is like mine ). Some may be better than mine.
