    Small High Detail Relatively quiet printer

    Hi,

    New to Forum but have been looking into 3d printing over the last year or so.

    I am looking to get my first 3d printer. Mostly I am looking to print miniatures, small terrain etc for warhammer, D&D etc.

    I don't have a great deal of room and it will be printing in the room I normally work in most days so needs to be fairly quiet if possible. I have around a $700 budget but that can stretch for the right printer.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    POC

    Hmm, well a monoprice select mini would be agood place to start. https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-Ass...gateway&sr=8-3

    I'd suggest the monoprice mini delta with a 0.25 nozzle, but quiet it isn't :-)

    For models you might go the resin route.
    BUT !
    resin can be messy and smelly, and ideally you'd want a dedicate desk just for the printer to avoid potential spills getting on other stuff.

    As far as detail goes - any size printer with the right nozzle and setup will do detail. so it doesn't necessarily have to be tiny.

    I guess also worth a look are the smaller ready built machines.
    monopricew voxel is a nice little machine, enclosed too. https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-135...gateway&sr=8-7
    nice bit of kit.
    and yes it is a flashforge adventurer with a monoprice badge :-)
    very useful as it means you can use the flashprint slicer. Along with simplify3d I'd say it's one of the best slicers out there. streets ahead of cura.

    Has 6 inch cube build volume - larger than you think.
