Subject: RE: 3D Printers

If you want to simply set it up and press print without any upgrades or tinkering, Prusa MK3S. I have a few of them, they just print. I didn't want to tinker either, although I did eventually put Mosquito Magnums in them to push volumetric flow up to 30mm3/s for production work. Won't get you 10-12" cube though. I don't find myself printing stuff that big often and even if I do its often broken into multiple pieces anyway. If you have to have the big surface, Creality has some or build a Voron.

The printer is only part of it. Skills in 3D CAD are the bigger part. Free SolidWorks or Fusion 360 are the best but steeper learning curves. For slicers, PrusaSlicer is decent for their stuff, otherwise Cura is the defacto standard. You can get along just fine using standard profiles only tweaking temp a bit to match filament. The only adjusting I've done is simply to speed up production pieces with their own custom setups. One off parts I don't tweak much.
