For 1K that is to be exspected , right ?

Well, I thought "the MK3 has been brilliant, let me also get a Prusa Mini as well!"

The Mini was great for about 30 days, then its been non-stop tweaking and upgrades. Right now its relegated to its own bench where the printer itself has become an independent hobby... (I would not recommend the mini if you just want reliable prints)

Gonna add to this thread instead of making a new one.


Iím considering getting back into the printer game. I had an Ender 3 last year and regrettably sold it. Iím looking at getting either another Ender 3 or the AnyCubic Mega S. Which would you go with?

I'd pick the Ender, the aftermarket is much better.

Sorry, late to the party.

I ended up buying secondhand to see if it was something for me.

Bought a Flashforge Finder 2.0 for 50 bucks and I know this has been very hassle free for the previous owner has printed over 1900 hours with this one.

All I need to get it unclogged and I ended up buying a new nozzle.
Previous owner also fitted it with Micro Swiss all metal hotend and closed it so it can print serveral types of filament.
He also has fitted printed filament holer to hold the bigger spools.

So far I have printed about 10 prints and so far not a single print has failed.
Currently I print with PETG, but former owner has printed flexible prints without problem.
Stock this is ment to print PLA only.

New nozzle and manual adjustment after auto adjustment was all it took to make it going again.
