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.
