    3d printing question.

    With what printer and type of filament would I need to build a full size NES shell, what would be the cost of the filament to do so. ( good quality not poor. )


    Thanks.

    The filament cost is so little, cost of a 3D Printer can range from a $200 - $2000.
    As for the filament you could most likely print an NES shell with most sturdy filaments sold!

    depending on the size (I have no idea how big an nes shell is) and print settings you could probably get away with 2-300 grams or less.
    A 1kg roll of pla will cost from $15 (maybe less I buy in british pounds) to $50 - depending on who made it and what it does.

    In order to recommend a 3D Printer we need to know more information, than that you would like to 3D Print a new NES case.
    What materials will you be wanting to use for your 3D Printing, What will be the largest items you will be printing.

    also your idea of mid range probably isn't mine.

    what's your best budget ?
