I've now been 3D printing for a couple of years. I built my first printer as part of a part work subscription, (the Vector V3). It works well, but has it's limitations, the main one being its print bed size. So, I invested in the FLSUN i3 (2017). It has a print bed of 8" x 8" x 8", more than double the volume of the V3. This obviously allows me to print bigger models, with less cutting. I now have a Peopoly Moai SLA printer. I bought it as a kit. I did this as I find I learn more about the printer itself while building it, than I would buying a 'ready made' one. I'll be using my FDM printers for large, less detailed parts. The Moai will be used to produce any smaller, finer detailed parts.
My hobbies include golf, photography & the history of my home town, which is Lincoln.
