Re: WHICH? 3D Printer - Malyan M200
« Reply #155 on: June 07, 2018, 09:44:40 »
Does anyone have experience with the Malyan M200
I'm after a small, simple 3D printer
It wont be used for more than small Quad parts - ie I cant see anything bigger than 2-3 inches being printed at this stage.

build it your self theirs some great guides out there you learn so much and the first time it breaks down you know how to fix it and if your lucky you can sell for a prophet
i've built two now if you like tinkering then its good and easy 

id recommend something like this remember to have lift lid and door its cheap it easy to store as its a box and it keeps all the mess enclosed and if the roof and door will make great for stopping drafts killing your prints as that can be a big issue later on down the road honestly if your going to do it build it

http://diy3dprinting.blogspot.com/2015/02/smartcore-low-cost-wooden-box-3d-printer.html

its basicly a ramps board running everything theres lots of information on ramps there old and noisy but still do the job great place to start inexpensive 18 dollars for the hole brain run it with a raspberry pie using octo print for web contorl of your printer from anywhere on your network again octo print can be added in at a later date
