Hello all! I would like to build a 3D printer, one with a 200mm cubed print area. I was also hoping to get it for around $300.
Most of the kits that I have found for this print area start at $450. I was hoping to get just a parts list so I could shop around and price compare. I’ve been having trouble finding this. Are there any part lists somewhere?
One printer that can have a full sized build area and cost 300 or less is the Wallace, it’s easy to assemble and all the mechanics are straight forward, the only reason I don’t have one of them running is because of the difficulty of sourcing m6 rods for a reasonable cost in my area. There are m8 variants but the files I have for those don’t seem to print right.
Brandon, I think you’re unlikely to get it done for $300. A more realistic minimum for that build volume is $450. 200mm in height is a stretch, and even 200mmx200mm bed is basically “full size”, i.e. not a typical budget printer. I would second a Wallace if you’re really just trying to get cost down.
