I wonder what your favourite self-build/open source 3d printer is for direct extrusion? I’m looking for something solid, normally sized, maybe ready for a second extruder later. I’m already running one wonderful Eusthatios and am looking for a good direct drive companion especially for flex and other special filaments.
I’m also thinking about probably buying a Hephestos 2 from BQ as a less time consuming alternative, but after clearing up my shop chaos today i noticed that there’s probably enough vitamins for 5 printers lying around so a self build variant should be the smarter solution.
But which one is great in print quality and also practical for a self build? SparkCube? Prusa i3? What do you like most?
