    I just joined the hobby last night with the launch of the Prusa Mini.
    https://shop.prusa3d.com/en/3d-printers/994-original-prusa-mini.html#



    It actually coincided with the East Coast Rep Rap Festival (ERRF).
    http://eastcoastreprapfestival.com/

    Which was held at the local community college where I take cooking classes and other fun stuff.

    My buddy is a huge expert in the field and I told him I'd join up when the price got more reasonable. Well $350 is my price point! I spent about $100 on materials and accessories at the show today and got to speak for a bit with the owner Joeseph Prusa. My unit should ship end of November or early December, will be looking at Thingiverse daily now =)

    Only $350? Wow, prices have really come down on these devices. What do you plan on creating with the printer? I'll be interested to see what you come up with when you get the unit. Maybe something like this? ;)

    Minis, once I can get it dialed in enough to do them!
