It's about the avg but look around online, there's quite a number of good stores in sa.

I actually bought mine off banggood, international is also also option but keep on mind shipping and customs. Can still get a good deal though.

Pictures make the second worse than it is, this is unpainted or sanded etc and trying a lower temp on the mimic now.

Crate dimensions are 13mm x 22mm, mimic should be around 32mm

Hi guys/gals

I am new to 3D printing and want to try my hand at, thinking of spoiling myself saw the ender 3 v2 on sale for R4999(still alot of moolah for me but seems like a good all rounder) , i have watched alot of reviews and read articles.

But was just thinking i should ask here what are your thoughts for noobie, especially with Black friday deals coming up.

Anyone deal with this company before how are they ?
google gave them a 4.8 on the reviews
Nope, although I haven't seen complaints on any of the whatsapp/telegram groups.

I bought the ender3v2 from DIYElectronics last year for the same price. Things on these printers do break, but they're cheap to fix.

Their physical shop is just down the road from me. I have not dealt with them myself but have friends who have and they only had praise. They have been around for quite a while but their target market is apparently aimed at higher-end additive manufacturing like the guys who 3d print dentures and so forth...

Damn R3999 is a pretty good price for that...
Now torn between a basic CNC type machine or this....

I'm a total noob to 3D printing. I'm thinking of getting the Ender 3 from Buildvolume, other than filament, what other parts should I order with it?

I think I need to get extra nozzles as those seem to need replacing after about 3 months, what else?
