I’m just starting to get into the 3D printing life, and I’ve done a ton of research on lots of different printers and what they can do. I came across the FT6 today, and it looks like a pretty sweet printer from what I can see, but I’m having a hard time finding much info on it, probably because it’s pretty new.
I haven’t built or used a 3d printer yet. I was originally going to start with the Anet A8 or the Creality Ender 3 because I think they would help me understand the basics more with more hands-on experience. But at the same time, I want a decent printer that can print larger designs for some future engineering projects I wanna do, and after I build one of the cheaper models, I would likely just buy something like the FT6 anyway.
My question is, is should I start out big and start with the FT6, or should I get something smaller to learn first, and then upgrade? I have a fairly solid understanding of mechanical and electrical engineering and I’m not afraid of soldering or creating custom mods or anything like that - I think that stuff is pretty fun and I enjoy doing it. What is your advice on the matter?
