      The left one doesn't look like it could be stable enough?

      The bottom one looks promising. I'd just need to make one for each size that we do.

    I have 2 3d printers that were purchased for CMM fixturing. It works really well and was so well received by the higher ups they purchased five more for five of our other sites. I mainly use PET-G for printing as it has the rigidity of ABS but prints easy like PLA and it holds its accuracy pretty well. I am currently printing a fixture as I type this. I have an Ultimaker 2+ and a Gmax 1.5. Rarely use my R&R fixture kits anymore.

      agree for the price of a complete r and r fixture set you can get a nice 3d printer

    I have 4 Creality Ender 3's that I use for a side business at home and they run incredibly well and cost only $160. I'm waiting for a part that requires something beyond a basic fixture.

      I want to hop on the 3D printer band wagon. I'll be picking up a used Kossel Mini 3D printer for just a little over $100. If it works out I'll invest in something more better-er.

      The Prusa line seems to be the dogs bollocks. Markforged feels top notch as well, but expensive...

        The Creality 3d CR-10 S5 is almost identical to my Gmax 1.5+ but with better reviews. It has a 500mmx500mmx500mm print volume gets better reviews than the gmax which was close to 6k for 719.00. I know that is alot for some but what you get for that 719 compared to what I got for 6k you cant beat it. It will be what I buy for my personal printer at home. Creality has really good printers. Prusa's are good but you can find better for cheaper or more options for slightly more. If you are really on a budget the wanhoa line is really good which is what I had at home for a long time before I sold it to a friend so I could save up ang get the CR-10 S5

          I have all kind of stuff I've printed and use on a daily basis at work.
          its really nice being able to model up and print things tailored to your specific needs.
          i stick with PLA
          its quick cheap and easy.
