    Newbie looking for first printer!?

    Hi guys

    I'm currently looking to purchase my 1st 3D printer.

    My budget is around £600 (I don't mind paying a little more for the right printer) & would like something that makes good quality prints. The prints I will be making will be custom parts/pieces for my RC Model scale boat parts, nothing major as the parts will be mostly static/cosmetic pieces, but detail is a must! & my Mrs will also be using the printer to make cosplay pieces!

    Any help much appreciated! like I say I'm after something that makes good quality prints, the ones that have cought my eye so far is the following:

    Prusa i3 MK3S (comes in kit or prebuilt form) I don't mind the kit as I do a lot of model making etc (hence why I want a 3D printer!)

    Creality CR 10 MAX 3D Printer (larger prints) but read mixed reviews on this?

    I also want a printer that is pretty straight forward to use & doesn't require a degree in science to operate!!

    Any info much appreciated!

    I would recommend to buy Prusa i3 MK3S if budget allows. I had my Prusa i3 MK2 for 3 years now and upgraded it to MK25S successfully. Here is my detailed blog. Also, there are great support channels and community. And PrusaSlicer is getting better and better.
