So, I’m getting ready to take the plunge into buying my first and had a really stupid, question, If I think I want to build my second printer with prints off the first are there any major considerations I should consider? ABS or PLA? Size 6x6x6 or 8x8x8? models with delamination problems? What resolution do I need? Basically I’m asking would a printrbot Jr or makibox be sufficient, or would something larger and more versatile make more sense if a goal is to make something larger and more robust like a mendel with the first?
I apologize if this is a common question, I’ve searched through the thread, but could really find anything addressing the best first bot to print reliable components for your second bot.
Thanks for any help. Sorry for rambling. Thanks to everyone for running and/or commenting on this page, there is a ton of useful information in here for someone who wants to dive in.
