out of curiosity what printer are you using op and anyone else in here
got a robo3d recently, results have been so damn poor, support has been so damn poor.
looking at replacing it with either a lulzbot, orion delta/rostock max, or makergear m2
The collection has everything except this guy.
protip for getting better prints
though obviously he goes full gloss on the one on the left, far too much for most purposes, but a little goes a long way in making a better print
Why don't people make good mag links anymore?
My friend has a makergear and sings its praises. The others, I'm not super sure about. I'm getting a makergear now. Having seen the prints he's made, it does seem like the best option, if you're willing to buy Simplify 3D to slice perfectly for it.
Depends on if you want to invest on a good one. The makerbot rep 2 is no longer being made, but you can find clones such as the powerspec or the flashforge printers pretty cheaply, $800 ish. If price is your main concern, you can buy a printrbot for around $300. For just a little bit more than the makerbot clones, you can get a makegear m2, but it'll take a little bit of getting used to (it's not quite as noob friendly).
As far as fillament, high quality (makerbot) fillament is $70, but most is in the $30-$50 range. Also, you can get special kinds of fillament, which might set you back a little more.
With a slicer or 3d modeling program. To view them, use Blender or Sketchup. To slice for a printer, use makerware (for makerbot printers) or slic3r, Cura or Simpliy 3D (which costs money but is the best one there is)
For those interested
Great printers, great support from the community and from the company, lots of mods out there:

Must have tools:
UHU glue sticks
I don't have a print handy, but I've tried a few, printing without supports you are going to have issues, with supports going to need some time to cut away, but can get good prints out of it if you have your printer settings spot on. It's not going to be as detailed as the real models but pretty darn good.
