Which 3D printer should i buy?

Which 3D printer should i buy?

Since you can print a lot in the Homecockpit area yourself, I write a small contribution.

Why do I need a 3D printer?

There are a variety of uses to use a 3D printer in the field of simulators. Since we are already exposed to high costs anyway, you can save a few Euros here and there!

buttons and switches are gladly printed. But you can also print larger things, such as whole Yokes and panels!

Under this link I have selected a small assortment of 3D printable objects. But even designing yourself is no problem!

Which printer do I need?

If there should be something bigger this is the top choice!

I also bought myself an Anet A8 and do not regret it. It is indeed a printer that you have to build yourself but if it runs then with perfect print results!

The most important thing about this printer is the print size which is 220mm x 220mm x 230mm. So you can print almost everything you need for your cockpit!

For about 160 EUR this is also a fair price.

Here are some pictures of my printed things!
