Pulled the trigger on one of these today - super excited. Can't wait to try it out.

Anyone else?

We have a fancy one at work.  Meh.  They have a LONG way to go to truly impress me.

I've been thinking about it. Can;t believe how affordable they got. But I think I would get a resign 3D printer like the elegoo mars or anycubic photon
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

My brother-in-law has one and he actually prints a lot of stuff, but you really have to be a "maker" kind of person.

I have one at work, I printed a replacement clasp for my fitbit which worked well. I don't think I'd use one enough to justify the cost though.

You're not impressed by the ability to prototype something in hours rather than weeks? Maybe the wrong use case...

200 bucks is like a couple of decent meals out.
