Awww guys... this thread needs a warning at the beginning - it just cost me $230 I can't afford . In related news, my A8 is being packed and dispatched to me now...

I bought off ebay. Still a week or more away so no idea what it's like. I also grabbed a fair few spares and a self leveling sensor for ridiculously cheap prices.

The last time I've used a 3d printer was back in 2006. Since then I've kind of shrugged them off as the quality of parts it made wasn't very good. After seeing what you guys are doing with them Ive got to say they have come along way in 10 years! Looks like I have some research to do.

Hello Cogsy, Hope you go well with you 3d printer. What type of bed leveler did you buy? I had trouble with the mother board, new one due next week. Norm

Hi Norm, not sure what type of auto leveller it will be as it still hasn't arrived from China yet, but it's the cheapest I could get. The printer arrived and has been assembled though, and I've wasted a ton of time printing all manner of things, mainly upgrades and tweaks for the printer itself. Soon I'll need to get serious and learn something about 3D modelling so I can begin to print my own designs for things I actually need.
Good luck with yours, I have been very happy with mine and for the price I'm very surprised how good it is.
