My primary interest in building a 3D printer was to be able to make replacement parts for antique electronic equipment - reproduction knobs and such. Of course, the possibilities with such a machine are virtually limitless.
I chose the Anet A8 because it is an affordable and highly hackable printer and a good way to learn about printing. I do plan to eventually invest in a professional printer.
