I am getting into hobby robotics, and I am finding that I more and more am in need of the ability to create custom parts.
What would be a good 3D printer to buy (couple grand max cost), for creating parts such as: chassis, wheels, servo armatures and holders, gears, etc.
For me one of the most important things to be able to make would be my own custom gear trains.
What would be a good 3D printer, precise enough and using tough enough materials to great gears for robots on the size scale of a cat. Such as differential wheeled, hexapod, and quadrapod platforms?
