The Printer

Amazing what you can get as a reasonable price – 3d Printing is very accessible.  We use a Qidi FlashForge Replicator II clone, which is about $799 and on the high-end side. You can get by with much cheaper as well, it will just have a smaller printbed, and generally be slower – but it is possible to get started for about $300 USD.  This is also a large dual extruder printer, allowing 2 printheads and 2 materials to be used together, though that is an advanced operation.
