I backed the RigidBot on KickStarter, so I should be getting a Rep-Rap style 3D printer in November. I've always wanted a 3D printer, but couldn't buy/build one for less than $800-1000. Through their Kickstarter, I'm getting one with some upgrades and 3kg of PLA filament for $610. (In case you want in, the KickStarter runs 'til some time on 10 May 13.) My question to 3D printer owners is: Where do I start? What modeling programs are good to design with? What slicer works well with that modeling program to translate to the printer? Any design/slicing tips? What tips do I need to know while actually running the machine? Any good material sources? Any tips are appreciated. If I can replicate a sun-visor clip for my son's 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible, I will consider myself to have mastered the system. ;-)
