I am a beginner....just to play around.
Looking for FDM.
As a newbie myself, only 6 days into this, I'm glad I took the advice from my local store and went for a basic printer to learn. For R7K, you can get a good printer for under R6K and then have change for plenty of spools to burn though (no pre looting required).
I went with the Anet4 as that is what my local store sells. The owner has not only given me great advice about 3D printing but also offers me after sales help.
Whatever you buy make sure you can get spare nozzles for cheap, and there is stock and that you can use any off the shelf filament - no chips or other crap.
