Looks great, almost makes me want to learn 3d printing.

That will look just perfect on front of a Pro or Junior painted buggy :)

Do it, I am running cheap Ender 3 pros and I have made more things then I could count. From RC bits to spacers for my Mothers mobility scooter to wiper rack bushings for a vintage VW :)

I’ll change the orientation so it’s less likely to break. A front collision now and it will snap on a print line.

It is not all that hard. I have a Sovol SV01 - Nearly plug and play. Number 1 thing - Level the bed!

Every time I think I am ready. I get overwhelmed and the forums point to too much money for a guy who will print a gas can for a crawler or a mini X2 part and I give up.

Right now I work on a Chromebook and think I would need a PC, at least a cheap one as I understand as well to do file transfers.

I had my eye on this one recently as it seems easy set up. I don't want to get overwhelmed in set up and futzing around and lose interest. I almost want a RTR to keep it RC like so I can learn from there.

Hot off the printer, heavily modified Kingroon with all the fixins

I usually dont cheat with a raft but I knew I was gonna be away for most of its print and didn’t want one to cause them all to fail

$200 max, pick my printer. Easy set up, compact would be ideal for my space. Won't print anything bigger than a 1/10 wheel. Easy set up, work out of box without obtaining a computer science degree and having to read 56 forums that will confuse me more.

I like the size of this one for instance.

Ender 3 in that price range. Joey King got one… then got another… and is printing like a madman. Creality is a hobby printer and you will have failures but it’s the easiest with the most support and super easy to get parts. My kingroon was way cheaper, but I have put well over $400 into it and it’s the cheapest printer I own after all mods are accounted for. It’s a hobby just like this.

I don’t have a ender 3. I do have a Ender 5 (highly recommend but out of your budget), ender 5+, 2 Kingroons, and a Pulse. The ender 3 prints just like a 5, just a little more setup in getting things square. You can’t go wrong.

My first was a monoprice. I got a year out of it until I went looking for a better unit. They won’t take you to the next level like a creality.

Got it, reading up on the ender 3 now. Thanks. I get it's a hobby and I can grow but I also know me. I am not passionate about it say like RC. So if I don't get going and learn the basics hands on I will not grow, I will get frustrated. I need it to work and then I learn and go down the wormhole.

If you are near a Microcenter, I want to say Joey got his Enders for like $110! I’m sure it was a special deal but it’s so cheap for that printer

Ender 3 is a good start. I have a few printers and use the Ender 3 regularly for several years now. Learning 3D printing isn't all that difficult, and you can use your Chromebook to slice your files. You'll just have to install the software.

Thanks everyone, I will read and do have a Microcenter relatively nearby. Now back to mini X2's. When can we expect the JRXT and Pro Se conversions?

Lots of roadblocks there- for jrxt and pro a proper chassis with kickup suffers the same problems as the full size ones- it’s crazy expensive. The pro se will probably be easiest as clm has the chassis posted above and I already have towers.
