They really ought to let us choose multiple 3D printers...
Yeah, I got mine a few years a go from someone aliased robotguy. It was partially assembled, basically the frame. I chose the Mega Arduino + RAMPS v1.4 route, spliced an old XBOX power cord, and bought and mounted the heated bed. But I didn't have an extruder and I was a little worried about whether I knew what I was doing. So I sought out someone to help me. With that person's guidance, I disassembled and upgraded the machine to have smooth linear bearings instead of plastic ones. He also printed me Wade's Geared Extruder and I purchased a compatible hot end for it. Unfortunately, I made a series of mistakes during the calibration stage, so I actually haven't managed to print anything other than glitch art before it breaking. Not being a rich person, I have had to wait to get it back started up, but I am hopeful that it will be working in the next few months.
So a lot of the time, I use my boyfriend's Makerbot Replicator 2. So you may see things from that on here too.
