I picked up a Toybox 3D Printer from their Indiegogo campaign last year. I saw it at the Maker Faire back in May 2017 and was impressed by the footprint, relatively decent quality, ease of use, and pricepoint. I was able to secure the printer for $200, so all in all it was a good deal for me.

The only difficulties I had the first time around were few:

  • Initial setup via the app didn't talk about how the wifi setup works. You had to get that info from the site itself. Ultimately you log into the wifi access point the printer creates, sign into your account, and then enter the 6-digit code.
  • The bed didn't raise at all when it first started printing. On my second print I had to force it up. Once it caught, it was moving pretty smoothly on its own.

I have a few ideas coming up. Will share those soon.
