I'm new to the 3D printing world, but I've been doing some research over the past couple weeks.
I need a printer that is decent enough to make prototypes using simple 3D software (I use Blender for 3D models, but won't mind suggestions there also). The prototypes are for cases to hold small electronic components and will be generally around 2*4*4 inches. They will meet to be sturdy enough to hold and run screws through etc. I'm probably going to do about 1000 models before getting the right one and creating enough prototypes.
I'm fairly good with electronics and should be able to put it together easily.
I've generally heard mixed reviews about different printer sets and I don't have the budget to get one of the higher end models.
Found this little number on Amazon : [REPRAPGURU] DIY RepRap Prusa I3 3D Printer Kit With Molded Plastic Parts USA Company https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E06IHJ0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_PgmYxb6DMARET
Given the pieces of requirements, do you see this working for what I'm looking to do? AND is blender going to be the easiest way to get prototyping models onto this thing or are there easier free software?
