Huge drop of £69 on this today! Now £199
I reckon this is the cheapest this has ever been now and by a fair way by the looks of it. It's a nice tidy looking bit of kit. This one is enclosed which is good from a safely aspect (I think my cat would try and get on it ) Supports cloud printing and has a 150x150x150mm build area. A good starting point with decent features for the price.

Prints using - PLA, ABS, Wood, HIPS etc. It is compatible with 0.5kg filament spools

Heat! Good price- its cheaper than the Finder model. I looked at both these but couldn't afford them as they were way over £300. Ended up with a Wanhao i3 mini which has been great!!
Will this work out-of-the-box, or is it a "hobby" printer that requires careful setup and modification, and printing of all sets of extra bits to make it work well?

I have a feeling it's still to early to expect any 3D printer to"just work" in the way that a conventional printer does, but I'd like to be proved wrong.

These are great out the box apparently. I have never used one, but looked into them prior to buying my ender 3
150 x150 is a pretty small build area, be advised

Is that cm??

No it is mm so 15cm or 6 inches in old money.

These Flashforge printers are as close as you will get to out of box printing! They're fully assembled and ready to go- but no 3d printer just prints without extra work! I have a fully assembled Wanhao printer with similar build volume and main issues are bed levelling and print adhesion. If the bed is not perfectly level and at exactly the right distance from the print head- your print will fail. Similarly if your print first layers dont properly stick to the print bed your print will fail. The Flashforge printers come with some sort of auto or semi auto bed levelling which might help but bed adhesion will be via glue or some type of tape. In summary- 3d printing is never going to be a press go and leave type of activity- and it seems to be largely hobbyists who dont mind tinkering and moding as they learn more.
Is this cheap, or just normal for a 3D printer with a small printing area?

I've been eyeing the snapmaker 2

Google the model and view the price - it is cheap
Looks nice as well unlike some of these ones that look like a bit of minature scaffolding
personally cant think of a use wonder if it could create a chocolate fireguard but a good price so well spotted
I know its a 3D printer but when it says 'Prints using - PLA, ABS, Wood...' can it engrave a pattern into a piece of wood?

Be careful of pointing that out, it makes people very angry for some reason.

I received two Google Home Mini wall mounts today from a 3D printer seller on eBay. Albeit they were cheap but I wasn't very impressed. The plastic is all rough a bit like wood if you don't sand it. If it had been something I had to touch like a cooker dial I would have sent it back.

That is normal for a polymer filament 3D print, yes it is useful, but no it doesn't produce something with the same finish as a mass produced moulded product.

There are tons of uses. From printing replacement parts (for plastic things that break), to upgrading things (not just the printers themselves - simple things like storage boxes to go in board games etc.). Though mainly, I just print out arty things that I paint and display.

I'm currently learning Fusion360, so I can CAD design things I need myself now and don't have to rely on downloading pre existing objects.

It's a fun hobby, but certainly not for everyone. It helps to be fairly technically minded.

When I started, I just wanted a 3D printer - but I didn't know why. Glad I decided to give it a go.

Upto you. I like my ender 3 after all the mods I have done to it, it cost more than this. I would have been tempted at this price.

You can buy one and then print things for people as a service

It's a wood polymer I think. Same with metal ones too I believe unless someone more knowledgeable can comment
Can I use this 3d printer to print more 3d printers to sell on ebay? If so...profit!
This is really cheap, I paid £300 from Box a couple of months back. I can recommend this for beginners as thee is no faff on with bed levelling and adhesion that put me off my first printer. By the time you need to do any maintenance you should have enough experience. Only downside is the small spool size. You can print spool holders for the 1KG spools but i have had trouble with the feed mechanism when using anything other than 0.5KG spools. The feeder motor is not the best and doesn't cope with any resistance well which will leave your prints gappy.
You can download the slicer software 'Flashprint' for free and play about with it to get an idea of what can be achieved abd how long it will take to print, which is always longer than you think!

I doubt they would accept it, it's like any custom work and unless it's out of spec then you don't have standing for it. If you pay for that type of printing then that's what you get, if you want objects that are finished quality straight out the printer you need to pay the extra for better printing methods.

No it can’t engrave, unless you replace the nozzle with a rotary piece (which is technically possible).

The printing wood refers to filament that consists of 70% plastic (PLA) and 30% wood fibres which give the final print a wooden look.
What are people actually using these for?
Buy this or just comission someone on Etsy to make three Philips Hue dimmer switch covers for me?
New to this, would it possible to make a replacement wing mirror cover for my Mini or would this be to complicated for this type of printer?

It wouldn't work, firstly the max size for this s is 15cm. 3D printed stuff isn't very strong because its effectively loads of tiny layers stuck together. Even if you managed to get it strong enough to clip on it would shatter if anyone clipped it.

Things like wing mirror covers are produced en masse anyway, these are really for if you either have a part that can't be sourced normally, if you need something quickly or if you want to design your own stuff.
I don't regret going for a anet a8. Works well out of the box but you need some basic electromechanical skills to get it assembled. Mine is now running from a raspberry pi for remote control and monitoring

Yeah price has just changed again, back to £199.
Guess they cocked up the VAT element
