3D Printer kit under £100

This isn';t a scam, but it isn';t the greatest 3D printer either :whistling:

My first 3D printer was a Makibox from a Kickstarter, the printer has many flaws but owning one without any previous knowledge of 3D printing was probably the best way to learn the craft of 3D printing.

The Makibox has a small build area of only 110mm x 150mm x 90mm and the version I';ve linked comes with a heated bed making it able to print with ABS

If you go for the £99 version above DO NOT print with PLA as the hotend will block and is so delicate it will fail within a couple of attempts.

They are selling another kit with an E3D V6 hotend and 4 x 0.5kg of filament

http://www.makiboxclearance.co.uk/collections/printer-kits/products/super-makibox-3d-printer-kit-complete-kit-with-heated-bed-upgraded-hot-end-and-a-roll-of-abs-or-pla-filament-ready-to-build

This version is £179.99 but be aware using the E3D hotend reduces the build height from 90mm to 75mm

If you were to buy a Makibox it would require a couple of mods to make it a fully functional printer without constant failed prints, this print IS NOT a play and print solution, but with time and patience will give you a working platform to enhance your RC hobbying.

The must have mods:

So do I recommend a Makibox? Well it';s an unsupported 3D print solution with no backup from Makible the company that made it, so as a 3D printer NO I don';t recommend it, but as a CHEAP entry into the world of 3D printing YES I do, as I stated I learnt a lot from owning the flawed Makibox and wouldn';t change that.

Thanks for the info. That';s got to be one of the cheapest 3D printers currently available. We have and use a Turnigy Mini Fabrikator and are often very surprised by the value for money so cheap printers are not all bad!
