One member asked about which 3D printer I have.

This is hands down the best bargain but it is essentially a kit with a 1-2 hour build

time.  I see it as an advantage since I'll learn how to make a few adjustments.

I had some trouble finding it for $200 shipped even with Amazon Prime, but then
tried ebay and Creality-Direct has it listed for $204.99 shipped but will take an offer
for $200.  It has a high build volume and excellent print quality once tuned up.
 
I was tempted to buy the Creality CR-10 for $400 but mostly it is essentially the
same with a bigger build volume.

Here is an interesting video on baking the PLA part for more strength, any chemists here 

who might comment on the validity of this for ordinary PLA?

This printer comes with a test dog to print, it did fine for the first 80% but became

stringy for the last 20% which indicated under feeding.  There is a known issue

with the feed tube pulling out or not being fully seated.  This guy shows how to

fix it and suggests about $3 worth of upgrade parts but I'm pretty sure mine already

has them:   I fixed it without any new parts.
