 :bugeye:   About 30 seconds into the video promotion, they show a coin printing as sharp as possible......   Errrrr, I donít think they set the machine up too well.

It should be a reasonable printer as its a pretty tried and tested i3 clone, plus Aldis warranties are good.  Donít forget you still need CAD to be able to create stuff, unless you only download and print stuff.  I would say £300 isnít the bargain it once was as other machines from Wanhao and Tier Time are around these price brackets.   Its also worth looking at the Creality machines if you want to go BIG, prices are more but not for the print volumes on offer.  The learning curve is not what it was, but it is still there.

Thanks for the advice Joules, I don't really need one but the price & warranty looked good.
