    Figured I'd see what the overall list of 3D peeps like to use for printing. I'll start:


    Lulzbot TAZ 6 (This thing is my workhorse)
    Robo3D R1+ (Good for detail/cosplay pieces)

    I have on the way a Prusa MK3 which should be here by end of month. What printers do you guys have?

    I have an Anet A8 (Prusa i3 clone). Lots of printed parts to make it better as well as an E3D V6 hot end. Considering I've invested less than $300 into it, I'm pretty happy.

    I should also note I ditched the stock controller board for a RAMPS board using Marlin firmware.

    I have a Prusa Mk2S (with the 2.5 upgrade on order), a couple of Monoprice Maker Select+, a Monoprice Select Mini, and a kit machine from Kickstarter called a Reach 3d. Prusa is the workhorse, by far, the Monoprice units are all okayish, and the Reach is a labor of love. It's actually pulled apart right now to upgrade the extruder and hot end (which I swear I will get to eventually, it's been down for months).

    Oh, and I have all the parts to a complete POS Kickstarter delta-style printer from several years ago called the BI 2.0. I keep thinking I'll buy some stuff off of openbuilds and just make a new delta out of the usable bits, but never have.

    Hictop branded CR-10 with minor mods (dual X, filament holder and bed leveling knobs)
    Makerbot replicator 5th Gen

    Only use Hictop filament on the CR-10 and Makerbot filament on the Makerbot.

    You’ll love the Prusa - they’ve done a really great job of evolving it as to features and performance across the board. It’ll compete with your Lulzbot as to your workhorse title.

    Flashforge Creator Pro. It has performed admirably and basically paid for itself.
