Hello James,

I hope you are doing well. I would suggest Davinci OR Solidoodle

Davinci is the cheapest new released 3d printer out there. It was built for home use and small business, that's what the Taiwanese printing company say about the printer. Solidoodle is priced at $900 for 4th generations and $700 starting for previous versions. Don't get me wrong but you can also assemble and buy from Amazon for less than $300, but it consumes a lot of time and you must have knowledge about which part goes where, just like when we assemble computers, otherwise you will have to hire a 3d printer technician to assemble it which would cost you another $100. You can get refurbished Solidoodle from their website for $299, but I personally would recommend Davinci plug and play, as it is new in the market, the price might increase in near future. Davinci users also have access to their encrypted cloud where you can download models. Go and grab it :)
