    Willing to spend 500-700 on 3D Printer - any tips please?

    Hi all.

    I really wanted to buy the XYZ Da Vinci 1.0 AiO because of the fact that it had a scanner and a decent build platform size but I've read too many bad reviews on this to go any further:

    Please can I ask for any recommendations in this price range?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I recommend the Wanhao duplicator or Ultimaker Original. Lulzbot printers are good too.
    For 3D scanning you can use a Kinect sensor - XYZ also has a handheld scanner with 1.5mm resolution for $149.

    I am also looking for a 3D printer to replace my Ultimaker Original for at least one year.
    It has to be compatible with 2.85mm filament.
    Budget around $500. It will be another Ultimaker Original, TAZ4 or Velleman K8200 - I greatly appreciate other recommendations.
    Dual extrusion, paste extrusion and CNC modification is greatly desired.
    Let me know, I am planning to make a purchase within a month.

    Thanks,
    Ralph
