    Could you guide me ?

    Hi.
    I am architect based in Bucharest. I never had a 3d printer before but I'm planning on getting one soon.
    I plan to use it for printing buildings models but also artistic object (i.e. furniture/ sculptures ).
    I've done some research about 3d printing methods and also i've read/watched a lot of reviews and currently I'm at the poiint where i feel that I need to hear soem advice from people who've got some real experience with 3d printing.
    From my research i've came to the conclusion that i want a SLA printer (for the smooth details and the fact that u dont need to do more sanding after the print ) but i am a bit worried about the resin part (which i find is provided only by the producer of the 3d printer model and is also expensive). I also found out that some parts (like the tank for the resin can only be used 2 3 times and u have to replace it afterwards. This is not cheap also. What other parts do brake so fast ? What else should i take into consideration ?
    Which brand should i use ? I thinking between a Makerbot Replicator 5th gen / Form 1+ SLA / Flashforge dreamer ... if you can help me with alternatives i`m open to any suggestions. I`m interesed in big printing surface but also nice details. I want a good international support in case of any problem with the printer.
    The budget is around 1500$

    At FDM printer i dont like the fact that u have do a lot of work to get a clean surface after the printing. Or is there any easy way to obtain a clean surface ?
    Sorry my english is not my main language. Any advice is welcomed.
    Thanks a lot,

    Fdm prints in ABS can be put in acetone vapour for a very short while to give injection mould shine, ie smooth finish, fdm printers cost of usage is also far lower

      Hey! Nice idea. There is also something coming from polyaker that is an alternative to FDM ABS printing. Google Polysher Polymaker and you will see. Its the same as abs acetone smoothing but with another material and ethanol. Good luck in your search .
