    Looking for a second printer

    Hi everyone.
    I have a 2018 QIDI tech 1. It's great. It's been a lot of fun. I bought it used with 6 hours on it for 300 dollars. It came with the original orange PLA and white ABS.
    My unit must be newer because I had cable coverings and the 10mm Z axis rods.
    I was doing a Google search for upgrades and I found a 300 some odd page post here, so I joined.
    My only complaint is the Z axis is limiting the height of my prints. I'd like to see 12 inches (TWSS) in Z.

    So now I'm shopping around for another printer to add to my arsenal.
    I am a low level hobbyist. I haven't even been printing a year. I haven't explored my options that much, which is why I have come to the professionals for their opinions. There were a lot of people in the QIDI Tech thread who bought one printer, sold it, bought another, sold it, bought another, etc...
    I want to learn from the mistakes and the journey of growth that others have.
    A friend has an ANET8 and it looks flimsy and rickety. I am not impressed.
    I like the PRUSA i3 and the Ender 3.
    I'm hoping someone could give me some advice so I only have to make a purchase once.

    Have a nice day, everyone, when I was choosing a printer, I rented a brand new good printer and using it I started thinking about additional waste in the form of ink, cleaning cartridges and so on, instead, I sold it and just use Submit Print Orders Online , the guys will print whatever they want and quickly and efficiently
