Re: M2 or M3SE

I would also recommend the M2 but I am even considering a Prusa just to try it out.. I am active on a UK based 3d print forum and the junk that people buy and expect to work just amazes me.. I don't even mention the M2 as the remarks I get are "That is over priced machine and nothing special.. no be...
