    Pre sale questions

    Okay, so I'm thinking about buying one of these printers, but I have a couple questions first. For starters, what is the consensus? I've owned more than one printer in my day, so I understand they require some working on, but are all the parts second rate? Is it just not worth it? Does it require constant work before every print? Is the z axis nice and automatic?<br><br>My next real query is if anyone has had any great experience with ABC. Perhaps on their new build plate or if it's possible to add a heated plate to it. I live in a very hot climate, and PLA simply melts here. I don't want to purchase the really expensive PLA either. Thanks for any answers.&nbsp;

    hmm - you'd be better either buying something with a heated build plate or using pet.

    That said - given that the mod-t has an enclosed print area - no real reason you'd need a heated bed for abs - it's jsut to stop it shrinking to fast I think.
    If you could get the temp in the enclosure up a bit - it should work.
