mBot as my first?
#1
I've been hanging out at 3D printer meetups at my local hacker space. Several people there have suggested the Flashforge Creator or one of it's knock-offs as the perfect first 3D printer. I am a tinker at heart. The idea of buying something that is completely ready to use seems like it would take half the fun out of this. This mBot kit seems to be about the same thing with a bigger build volume, for more than $400 less.

If I am confident I can build it and make it work, are there any down sides to getting the mBot.

I have also noticed just tonight that there is an eBay auction for a printer that looks just like the mBot. It could be an mBot reseller. The only reason I'm even thinking about it is that the eBay seller estimates 2 week delivery, and offers a 2 Year warranty.

Any opinions?
