So I ended up getting the Ender 3 Pro.

After using up most of my starter/sample filament, one thing I KNOW I want, is ABL.
This means I will need to upgrade my mainboard. I am having trouble deciding between the TH3D EZboard Lite v1.2, or the SKR Mini E3. I will admit, the $80-$90 price difference is a strong favor for the BigTreeTech.
And after that decision will be whether I go with BLTouch or EZABL.

Any suggestions/thoughts?

I have the skr mini and it works great so far. Rediculously quiet after the swap

Kelvarr - I have the SKR Mini E3 v1.2 It's worked like a peach. It does have the option for sensors.

I haven't cared that much to get into auto bed leveling. I would defer to the pros on their comparison.

Tinkering with a few things to keep me active.

Printing out the 'astrolabicon' here as I can find the small magnets at home depot for cheap.

Also created my first 'random idea to printed concept in under 30 minutes' using TinkerCad. Looking to make MOLLE compatible holder for my trekking poles. Version 1 was a surprising success. Already going to beef it up with v2 and the what not. Woohoo.

3" moon from here:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2955930

No support, dropped the model down -3mm to clear up oddities in the model.

0.16mm detail
No support
100% infill (it's hollow so the infill goes into the detail like a lithograph print)

Cura said 11.5hr, but it was more along the lines of 9hr.

Jammed a single neopixel up the hole and came out pretty decent. Visually looks better, but my phone's got weird on picking up colors when blasted in RGB.

For the differently visioned - top to bottom, left to right.

R0: red, green, blue
R1: yellow, purple, teal
R2: orange, pink, dark red

Just got some MGN12H rails for my Y axis. The wheels on my pro are starting to wear, and I enjoy precision.

Should be installed within the next week once I find some time. I'll post some images once it's done.

Looking forward to hearing about your results! I've been considering going to a rail system and ditching the wheels.

Made a slightly narrow door, but for version 1.0, not bad. Friction fit the base to the door in a good guesstimate.

More doors. *chuckles in Uruk-hai * 28mm scale terrain's getting a little easier.

Then a set of Woot.com's BOC and Vestibules of Patience. One of the BOC is a mimic.

Making a 'dumpster fire' for 2020..

I am hand designing a 'fire-looking-cap' to go over the candle, but 90% of the way done.

Material:
- primerfiller and some sanding.
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Automotive-11-oz-Gray-Filler-Primer-Spray-249279/202097276
- Rustoleum 2x green and black.
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Ol...-General-Purpose-Spray-Paint-334039/307244868
- GE flickering LED
https://www.lowes.com/pd/GE-StayBri...n-Tall-Battery-Operated-Tea-Lights/1003313214
- Thick armature wire for the lid.

Model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:950602
Note - size everything up by 140% in cura to get a small LED flickering tea candle to fit.
