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.

This design was primarily created with MSFS2020 in mind. The G1000 can be printed on a standard Ender 3 print bed of 220mm x 220mm. For improved quality, the buttons can be resin printed, but a filament printer will work fine too.
