I bought an ender 2 as it was the only one that would fit inside an Ikea ALEX storage unit.
I want to do the following modifications :
Bought here for 269 CAD + shipping / Received in 25 days.
Money wisely spent (searched for the best price) :
Money less wisely spent (bought locally in a hurry) :
So far, total : 792.84
Still cheaper than a Prusa, I have two hot ends I can swap (one for PLA, one for Nylon-CF), the Nylon-CF setup is top notch, the controler board is the best there is, I have autoleveling, and it (mainly) fits inside my ikea box :) :) (which acts as an enclosure, necessary for nylon).
Would I do it again / recommend? No, too much work. When you want to go custom I realised it is better to start from the most popular base (ie, Ender 3) and if there is a simple solution out there for your custom needs (ie, silent board from creality) choose it.
Am i happy with it? Yes, works beautifully!
