I've been looking at 3D printers for a little while now, my grade school son has been bugging me to get one
I was going to buy a cheap $200 Chinese machine but, the more I read about peoples assembly experiences and the general quality of them I couldn't pull the trigger.
Then I came across the Wilson II
Wow, what a different experience people seem to have after purchasing Wilson. I have watched all the assembly videos, they are well made and appear to be straight forward, step by step instructions.
I really like the fact that the purchase helps support the actual developer. I also like the fact that the hardware and the software is constantly improved!
I would have purchased sooner but, my son insisted on a Blue Wilson II so I got on the notification list on Tindie and kept reading and watching videos. Today I received notification that Wilson was back in stock and in blue! The sale was completed in less than 2 minutes from the time I opened the email notification.
I usually prefer to build things from scratch and had considered sourcing all the parts myself but I figured by the time I found all the hardware and did all the prep work that is needed before actual assembly I wouldn’t save that much money and it would be a huge time sink.
