Just am getting my first printer, having followed prices and researching for a good year. I just got the CR-10 now because the price at the moment was amazing (£300 from https://www.gearbest.com/3d-printers-3d-printer-kits/pp_441282.html?wid=88&lkid=11574824 using the code CR10UK31). Was also thinking of getting the Anet A8 as that also has an amazing deal at the moment (£112!!! from https://www.gearbest.com/3d-printers-3d-printer-kits/pp_337314.html?wid=88&lkid=11574859 with the code GBA8UK31), but the Cr-10 deal just got me (especially since it shipped from the UK). I thought I would share these deals because they are just insane.
My other reasons for choosing the CR-10 (and why you should too if you are thinking about getting a 3D printer at the moment:
- Unlike other chinese printers, the CR-10 has properly specced components (never heard of one catching fire)
- Print volume is huge (30cm x 30cm x 40cm) - appropriate for electric skateboard prints
- Printer is pre-assembled (mostly) so even if you have never put a printer together (like me) you should be fine.
