There have been many attempts at an entry level 3D printers, none have been more popular than the Creality Ender 3. It’s large enough to do most jobs, sturdy enough for it to be repeatable, reliable enough to be entry level friendly. We recommend you spend $200-ish on this to figure out if you really like printing before spending more on a “fancier” printer and hating the experience.

When you order your printer, order a spool or two of Esun PLA PRO/+ in white, black, or gray. There are fancier colors, but these spools will be used to basically calibrate and test your printer, and they are very consistent. Fancy colors not required.
Finally, you’ll need a slicer. I prefer Cura. There are many others available, but I’ve found Cura the easiest to use getting started, and it’s free. Download here.
