The ultimate printer I can recommend is the Bamboo Labs X1 carbon with AMS if you have deep pockets. ($1200). It's a massive leap forward in 3D printing, with excellent quality and impressive speeds. Its pretty much press print and go as the software and hardware do the calibration before each print. This printer will not manage the larger parts and you are going to need the  CREALITY CR10 v3, which is my second choice of printer.

Under Prototyping
Designed to house all the electrical components in one place. This includes the 4 TB6600 drivers (the fourth for the upcoming pedals), the Leo Bodnar and Arduino Mega boards. The drivers are cooled by a 60mm fan powered by 24v. In testing, I connected all the fans to 12v instead of 24v, reducing the noise greatly, and the motors all seem cool still.
