Just out of interest, what are the running costs of a 3D printer like?
I used to be a 3D Cad draughtsman and have been interested in giving this a go for a while.
just updated my cost spreadsheet:
upfront capital, the makibox A6 kit first costed me £255 (would be cheaper if I'd known to just buy the board, motors & heated bed separately),
adding the cost of filaments, acetone, bearings, rods, E3D nozzle, making the frame, polycarb sheet it totals £472
each 1kg spool cost £10 and est running cost over 30 prints, each print would cost from £22
