Our 3D Printer of choice right now is the CREALITY CR10 v3

Great print & build quality for the price, Silent and Has a bigger Print bed of 300 x300mm. Karl personally recommends it for his sim build.

Karl's Second cheaper choice is the CREALITY ENDER 3 v2. Smaller printer bed of 220 x220mm. But performs excellently and has a purchase price of around $200.

These parts are then held in position with various dome head screws. The whole unit then slides onto the edge of the instrument panel and is secured with screws.
You will need a print bed size of 300mm x 300mm.
