    Have the prices dropped that much? I've wanted one for awhile now but I was waiting for the price to drop. $170 for the printer plus $20 per filament is a good deal. Any particular printer model I should look out for (also any bad models I shouldn't get)?

    I wish, I'd love to do some earth mode fembots in future with them. The real reason video and updates stopped is I think (I dont know but I think) it was the latest elita prototype that got MMC's attention as they contacted me soon after the last update. I reaaaaly wanted to pull out the stops for my first MMC project so they would want me to do more so I put everything else down for a bit. It seemed to work though, and now Ill be getting back into my personal projects alongside MMC stuff

    Well, hope we hear from the MMC stuff soon...

    And idk... Get them to mass produce this Elita? Heck, they like doing repaint/retools... I can see this bulkier Elita as an easy repaint into Strongarm (PRID).

    I second this. I have an Ender 3 and an Ender 3 Pro, and I absolutely adore them. The Ender 3 is a great "starter" printer due to low price, reasonably easy to learn to use, and a really good build volume - it's the biggest bed you can get below $500 USD, I believe. Check Amazon - someone almost always has the Ender 3 listed at a sale price. Alternatively, go to the Creality website and order direct. Oh, and absolutely upgrade to the magnetic bed.
