Hello Gents! I want to ask for some assessment in buying a 3D printer for making some parts for dioramas and spare parts from models that are really difficult to get. This, because in my country is really difficult to get nice stuff more making dioramas and repairing damaged models. I appreciate your help, because I am not looking a super pro printer, but one that can help me doing this parts.

Just make sure you get an SLA printer. FDM printers are worse than useless for anything that looks nice

Resin (SLA) printers get you a better finish but more of a hassle to use, you can get one for around 300€. They're usually smaller than FDM ones but more than enough for spare parts and accessories.

Thanks for your information! I will look for those. One question if I want to make a replica of a figurine, should I have to for also some scanners? This, because I want to make some 1/43 mechanics for a diorama I am working on.

Cheers,

Alejandro
