So I have my Ender 3 V2 and I’ve settled on a few things I want to get. What I want to do is run it by the smarter more experienced people here to see if there’s something missing or something I can do without.
My goals are to print mostly in PLA and mostly fun models (for example stuff off of print the world), and practical items (clips, hardware for furniture, storage items etc). I eventually want to be able to print more interesting filaments (glow in the dark, wood filaments etc)
Here’s my shopping list:
A couple things I am not sure about though:
- Do I need an enclosure? I know I don’t necessarily need one for printing PLA but what about other materials?
- Do I need Octoprint? probably not, but resisting the urge to get it because “oh cool look at all the data”
- What do I need for filament storage? I am kind of paranoid about accidentally ruining filament but I’m not sure how to store filament, or if it should be in a airtight box and feed from there. If i need some sort of storage I’d like it to not cost an arm and a leg
I appreciate any advice the community has!
